What's clone system should you buy?

Hyperkin RetroN 1 HD or Retro-Bit RES+?

I think i go for that one that have best looking picture, and i think the Hyperkin RetroN 1 HD looks way better then Retro-Bit RES+ but is only my personal taste.

Hyperkin RetroN 1 HD Mario




Retro-Bit RES+ Mario

Well the Hyperkin also looks fantastic design-wise! So if it has the better picture and sound then it's perfect.

What i got information about is that RetroN HD in ntsc mode plays in 60hz and in pal 50hz and that is what i need, its still little information on RES+

Hyperkin is the clear winner for design, as it's wonderful. I sort of want one for the HD, maybe you could split it into the Classic Edition clone shell, as that would be wicked cool.

Edit- I definitely like it, especially after that review which really made it look quality.

To answer the OP's original question, you should buy none of these, they are garbage.  Instead, save up and get a RetroUSB AVS or Analogue Nt Mini.  Those are the only two HDMI consoles of Nintendo 8-bit hardware worth a damn.

From watching various reviews I'd also say the AVS is the way to go.  All these other options are a false economy to me, especially the Hyperkin Retron that pretends to play carts.

AVS is cool because it uses FPGA, so it's accurate in its NES functionality. I also like that they chose to give it the name of the original prototype Nintendo. That was also called the AVS, and the design is similar, right down to the Famicom cartridge port.

Some nitpicking, but it uses FPGA so it could potentially be super accurate (much more than an emulator).
Analogue NT Mini (also FPGA) seems to be much more capable than AVS, and allows ROM loading from SD (supports "over 200 mappers"), but the price tag isn't nice.

I considered the Hyperkin HD, but after seeing a YouTube video on it, I have concluded that it doesn't seem to accurately reproduce the same sound quality as a real NES/Famicom.

I am considering one of those DIY Famicom systems, since it supports VGA and RGB, but I haven't seen anyone really do a good review on it, nor anyone make a shell for it.

I honestly think if you can get one, that a modded Famicom Mini is a really good choice.
