Isn't there also an issue with controller ports blowing up?

Must admit that I was quite lucky when I used to have a Dreamcast. Bought it used and un-yellowed and it never broke down at all before I sold it.

How easy was it to "unyellow" it?? Is there a way without pulling it apart, and dipping it in acid?!

As for my dreamcast it is a uk console in a NTSC Sega Sports black console case I got for £1.00 from a boot sale. The innards appeared to have lost a battle with a uk mains supply but the case was immaculate so I swapped it out. Sure I got a black controller with it but cant really remember.

Looks nice next to my PS3.
You'd still need a CD to run the SD though, so the reset issue would still be a problem. Also, there's not a massive amount that works just on the SD card yet (although I've got to admit I've not really dipped my toes a huge amount into using the SD card yet, and haven't checked anything in a while).

Have 5 Dreamcasts set up at the moment, 1 lovely white one downstairs that sounds like a Helicopter constantly, my main one which has yellowed badly, a Sega Sports one which is the quietest DC I own, and 2 Japanese ones, but no reset problems on any of them currently. Constantly worrying that one will go on the blink though, just waiting to find a cheap 6th to have on stand by!

I used to have reset issues so I soldered the motherboard to the power supply. Problem solved.
