After reading a lot of reviews, positive ones by the way, regarding other Blaze MegaDrive portable consoles, I knew that I should get this one launched recently by them for my 5 y.o. daughter, who loves videogames just like me and was always asking for a Nintendo 3DS console to play Super Mario Bros. 3DS is too much expensive, and my daughter was already used to play arcade games, namely Sega ones, on my Xbox 360, therefore this product is perfect to offer her as gift for Children day (1st June). Needless to say that she loved the console very much! :-)
Well built product, specially for the price that it costs
The screen is 4:3 however it shows very well the megadrive games resolution
20 built in games crossing all genres
SD card slot where you can place/play other Megadrive/Genesis games downloaded from Internet (the games must be .bin files)
Built in battery just like a mobile phone – no AA batteries needed
Possibility to connect the portable console to any kind of TV (LCD, plasma, CRT)
The speaker is low quality, however if you don’t turn it in the maximum sound it hears nicely
Very hard to find the TV out cable – It is only available to buy at Blaze website, unfortunately is constantly “not-available, please order” status. It would be perfect if Amazon.co.uk starts to sell as well the TV cable, I believe that exists lot of consumers try to find such product to buy.
I recommend this product to people that like retrogaming and specially Megadrive platform back in the days, as also for kids in younger ages that already like to play videogames.
