Good product

 

Better than the flat, less air flow blockage price is good. Does the job. There are still needs for the floppy dirve when installing Operating system driver. You don't alway have a flah drive handy.

Product Specifications

Dreamcast features include 128-bit performance from a reduced instruction set computing (RISC) central processor, an independent 3D graphics engine and a dedicated 3D sound chip. Dreamcast uses a Visual Memory System (VMS) with a built-in LCD screen. Gamers can choose plays in sports games or plan offensive moves in RPG games without their challengers clueing in. You can also save special characters, moves or teams to the VMS, and swap info with your fellow Dreamcast owners by connecting your VMS card to theirs.
