When purchasing a handheld I gave myself a small budget of £100-£150. I wanted something that had good build quality, something that didn't have the usual plastic feel. Emulation wise I have spent countless hours in the past configuring emulators and controllers so decided I'm over this, I wanted something I could just pick up and play. I wanted the ability to emulate mostly 16bit consoles and anything above this was a bonus. The RG351MP has achieved this above and beyond, I am extremely pleased with this handheld.
Emulation wise I have been playing Mega drive and SNES mostly, with the quality screen and aspect ratio these looks awesome. I have also loaded some PS1 and PSP games, PS1 works flawlessly but as to be expected PSP is hit and miss. I did have great results playing the PSP Need For Speed games though, these had no lag at all. I have also tested Atari Lynx, game boy original, advance and colour all seem to work great. I have a large collection of N64 which I'm yet to test.
If you have a huge ROM collection like myself I recommend purchasing a larger SD card, I went for a 256GB but I have seen people use 500GB. I also purchased a new SD card for the OS and loaded on the latest version. I also recommend downloading the latest software from ambelec web site and installing this. I was unable to get it to upgrade so i installed a fresh copy instead. The new software comes an improved UI as well as new features such as cloud saves. Another amazing feature on this device is the ability to run other engines such as anything that runs on ken Silverman's build engine (duke nukem 3d, blood, redneck rampage etc.) as well as other engines like Doom, quake and diablo. I hope they continue to build on this feature.
Just wanted to also add I ordered the device and it arrived within 3 days.
I ordered a case too, I recommend leaving it outside to air for a bit as it has that chemical smell you normally get from new mattresses. I left it outside for a few hours and there is no smell after.
All this for just over £100..... amazing! I have already recommended this to a number of friends.
