Re: RetroN 5 Thoughts

Ok so on the Funstock site it states the following "European version with CE Mark and upgraded hardware" - What's the "upgraded hardware" :?: This is in reference to the earlier models that had the faulty pins. A few people have emailed us asking if this is the old or new system - the old one being...

Re: RetroN 5 Thoughts

Re: RetroN 5 Thoughts

On topic Missus got me one for Christmas and it arrived yesterday. Huge shock to me! She apparently preordered it for last Christmas but never cancelled it. Got it for the original asking price! Anyway I've been playing on it today and really like it so far. Lovely features like the filter options,...

Re: RetroN 5 Thoughts

Would certainly be interesting to see who was right about it. I don't think it's about right or wrong. There are users who are enjoying the machine and users that aren't... both parties are allowed to have their opinion. Fair point, and the way it should be. I actually don't mind the look of the Re...

Re: RetroN 5 Thoughts

Very well put kiwimike. I fully intend to get one at some point if the price ends up near the Canadian equivalent - £90?? For the record re the way I respond to Andy. You all can call me old fashioned, miserable or even (definitely) cynical if you like. But I just don't like seeing some sales bloke...

Re: RetroN 5 Thoughts

No. We've never tried to "censor" anyone - we just stop sending products to people that don't like our products (especially if they're someone who's opinion I don't care about). There's a lot of great journalists out there and I'd rather send our limited press samples to those guys. At least then, ...

Did you pick up a power base converter? I've been enjoying a lot of Master System recently.

Just asking- Is this the same Andy that came onto the forum to defend the Blaze Gamegadget fiasco then disappeared? With respect, this group of companies associated with Blaze does have an interesting past and policy with dealing with negative press and customers [/quote][/quote] Happy to answer th...

Re: RetroN 5 Thoughts

I would imagine that most of the people buying this unit would already be aware of any possible issues with the hardware anyway as there of loads of reviews already online. I know most of the users that have adopted the unit on this forum are enjoying their experience with it. :D Great to hear that...

Re: RetroN 5 Thoughts

So what you're saying is that you only send stuff to people who will give positive reviews, even if that isn't a true representation of the product? No - what I'm saying is if it's someone who's opinion I care about I will send them everything. Darran's a great example, he's given some of our produ...

Don't forget this is the bundle - the solus is £130.

We sold out of bundle stock and are taking back orders for the solus version with delivery in January.
