I think for $50 it's worth it.
I've been messing around with some of the BleemSync images I have.
I had three 32 GB images, however was was password protected an no good.
The other two I did not like (personally), the game selection was crappy.
I'm sure perhaps they were sleeper hits, or imports, but they were not mainstream titles.
I've been working on getting a 64 GB image up and running. I saw Madlittlepixel on YouTube had a video done on the build.
It looks good, but it appears my cheap a$$ 64 USB wont work. I've written the files to 2 64GB drives (same brand each time) and it just freezes.
Tomorrow I'll run out to Staples and get a Lexar drive, hopefully this 64 image will work out.

PI$$E$ me off! It took hours to extract and move this thing over. It boots up one time, looks good, but isn't in English. Go to change the language, it freezes.........now it just hangs. It won't come on. Sooo much time spent ! It is soooo frustrating. But at least the build looks good! Good game selection. Lets hope the issue is indeed the flash drive and I can get it up and going this week.

Wanna be able to cross this off the list.

Was in Wal-Mart in Brantford today and they're down to $39.96.
They had lots in stock too.

Very cool! At that price you shouldn't miss out. At that price I might get a couple for friends and load them up with tons of games for them.
I see tons of stock everywhere for these. Maybe they will be in landfills like E.T carts one day.

I grabbed one at the South London Best Buy on Thursday as well. I reserved it online in the morning and picked it up around noon. I didn’t see any more on display, but didn’t look too hard either.

For $30 you can’t really go wrong. The internal hardware specs are supposed to be higher than the NES / SNES Classics. You get two controllers. I need to read up on BleemSync / AutoBleem to see what they can do. Should make for a cool emulation box once it’s modded.

I had reserved another 2 units @ Best Buy for the $30 price.
I was told that the Source had them for $20 ! But SOLD OUT everywhere.
Best Buy would not match the price.
I assume the next price drop will be down to $20.
Man, how fast these fell in price. I'm actually in shock.
I wonder will this be the death of these type of classics, the fact that this failed SOOOOOOOOOO badly.
And failed so badly despite the mod that came out rather quickly.
I've got a 64GB image with 100 + games, I'm quite happy with that.
What I'm most pissed is I snagged up 2 units, one for me, one my brother when they were $80. Never even touched them.
Then they dropped to $50 - I got another ( for some reason I like to double up). I noticed that was about 40 days ago as I was unable to adjust my price.

I wonder would we ever see a PS2 version ? How will the Sega unit do ?
I was really hoping (in general) that these type of units would be a HUGE success and we'd see things like a Turbo GRFX 16 version.

The best buy site has them at 80 now which seems kind of strange.
