NTSC version (Canadian Purchase)
Bought this unit on Dec 2005. Nice shiny box looked impressive already. Plugged GBA cart in tuner and away I went. Surprisingly and quickly found reception. Some of the channels look excellent, volume is also good. No frame skipping seems like it is 30fps, manual colour, brightness and contrast control, nice touch. I plugged in the mini cable adapter, great looking reception. Ran my mini dvd player, that too was exceptional. Not bad for 40 Canadian dollars.
After a hour of fiddling, here's what I noticed: Changing the channels via d-pad really sucks, need the use the select buttons and L/R to channel hop. Cable channels are not in the proper sequence I'd expect it to be. Can't be mobile (box indicates it's great on a bus, car, but manual says otherwise). Battery life is short to my standards. Used 2500mah rechargeable (NiMh). It last only 2 hrs. With 800mah rating on the unit I should get 3 hours of air time. I'll double check my batteries and try again later. Power adapter is HUGE, needs to go on a diet. They should have added a stand for GBASP users, now I have to create one. No display to indicate what channel you are watching unless you change the channel. No power switch. Im not sure if power is being used when GBA unplugged. One more peeve, I don't think it remembers the last channel watched after powering up device. I did not save the channels after capturing. On the to do list.
This is a great unit for the price, lots of minor problems but worth it in the long run, would recommend if you have an GBASP and cartridge already.
BTW my three star rating is good. I'm just very picky!
