Hyperkin RetroN 5


The RetroN 5 retro game console brings 720p upconversion, HDMI output, and emulation tricks to your decades-old game cartridges.

Works with games from nine different systems. Upconversion and HDMI output look fantastic. Lots of options and tools.

Included Bluetooth remote is finicky.

RetroN 5


A retro console that plays NES, SNES, Mega Drive, Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games

Plays original retro games in HD ; Great features like image filters and save states ; You can use your original controllers

Save import/export doesn't work properly yet ; Design is rather cheap-feeling ; Bundled controller could be better

If you have a large collection of classic software and you want to experience it in pin-sharp high definition on your massive flat screen telly, this is by far and away the best option.
