Do you prefer the AV Famicom or the original (RF) Famicom?

Twin Fami

I honestly prefer the RF Fami.

AV Fami all the way. The original is ugly (unpopular opinion, I'm sure) and the hard-wired controllers...come on now.

With an opinion like that, you should brace for a flame war.
Also, I use a CRT with my Fami, which masks some of the imperfections of RF video, Also, the controllers are easily replaceable despite being hard-wired.

I just don't understand how anyone can enjoy a game with a cord sticking out of the side of the gamepad. :gamer:

I agree. I like the original design much more than the AV version.

The AV Famicom looks a little too bland for me. If I had to choose my favourite Famicom though, it'd probably be the Sharp Twin Famicom.
Those are awesome. You get the best of both worlds thanks to it having a built in disk drive.  :bub:


I think that the original famicom + disk system on the bottom still looks much sexier  ;D then twin famicom aether of  the 2 revisions .

Original all the way. Both design-wise and feature-wise.
(no microphone = not good enough)
And yeah AV Famicom and top-loader NES looks too bland. The dogbone controllers are not too bad though.

The only pros with the AV Famicom is that it has stock AV and (incomplete) NES controller sockets. If one mods it to add a microphone and all four missing output ports in the controller sockets however, it would be superior feature-wise.

Definitely Original Famicom by far. Beautifully designed, even more when you realize how odd an AV Famicom looks on top of a Disk System. Oh, and those round controllers that you can fit on the console's slots make the original model look so cute :D
Not hating on the AV Fami, but there's something on it that makes it look cheap for me, I'm not sure what is it.

I've added the Sharp Twin Famicom to the poll.

With the way I hold the Fami/NES controller, the wire coming out the side is hardly a problem.

I use a CRT with my RGB-modded AV Famicom because RF is horrible and should be shunned.

Sorry for sounding purist-y, but I feel that hooking up a RF Fami to a CRT gives the most authentic experience.

I prefer the design of the original RF Famicom, but I greatly prefer the AV out on the AV model.

I think both RF and RGB mods look bad. ;D One is too muddy and the other too crisp. AV composite is just right. ;)

vertical lines on RGB are perfect like horizontal ones, and on AV/RF only horizontal are perfect, and verticals are fuzzy , so RGB I think is better, and if you fell it too sharp, you  can  set the sharpness on low from the TV set

The Twin Fami was my first Fami. So I only have eyes for her. :)
