You don't need any step-down or step-up transformer. The HK Famicom used with its official "HKG" adapter works fine in all 230V countries like UK. This I'm sure you know.

I don't think you should use a JPN adapter + step-down transformer with the HK Famicom.

As it stands, there's a bunch of great options for playing Famicom games on the NES.  I use Nintendo's official converter, plus one small mod to it, stuck inside a custom cut cart with a Game Genie handle for easy removal.  Point is, there's lots of good options.

The other way around, an adapter to play NES games on a Famicom? I've been striking out a lot trying to find something, anything, that's even the slightest bit reliable.

I keep seeing recommendations for this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Shielded-72-to-60-Pin-Adapter-Converter-Play-NES-Nintendo-Games-on-your-Famicom-/371655846756?hash=item56886a2b64:g:04sAAOSwa-dWk88o  The recommendations include some caveats about some small mods to make it fully compatible with, say, Castlevania 3.

I'm here to say this one doesn't go the distance.  I've gone through two of these things at this point.  They start out working great, and after the mods work even better.  However, after a few months both of them get buggier and buggier.  I'm not sure if it's corrosion or if the pins get bent out of shape too easily, but after some time and some use, games don't start up reliably (or are filled with that classic "read error" garbage front loading NESs are so famous for).  I know it isn't the Famicom, since Famicom games all still load perfectly.  Numerous attempts to clean both ends of the adapter have unreliable results.  I'm forced to conclude this particular adapter isn't built to very good tolerances or with longevity in mind, so rather than buy yet ANOTHER one of these (and apply yet another round of mods to it when it arrives), I decided to ask the pros.

Can anyone suggest the best quality adapter on the market today?  I'm willing to spend extra if it's pricier than the average.  My number one concern is durability.  I'd love to find one as long-lasting as NES carts themselves.

Yet another reason to ask eBay sellers to show you the carts opened up.

Also, Famicom games?  NES games are so much easier to open.  C'mon you spider smugglers!

I recently found out that this shop: http://www.beep-shop.com/area/ has a very rare item, but it's in Miyagi Prefecture and I can't find any proxy services anywhere near there. Does anyone offer or know one in that area?
