Extremely simple to use and reliable.
I got the drive quickly and it works flawlessly
The EverDrive N8 NES is great. I don't mind the 2 second wait time it takes to load ROMs vs the Pro version's instant load time. I don't need multiple save states within the same game either. The one thing I wish the standard EverDrive N8 NES cart had was in-game exit to the EverDrive ROM game list menu. With everything that this cart can do, it gets a little bit annoying to have to get up and press reset every time I want to change EverDrive game ROMs on my original NES console. That should be a software feature also available on the EverDrive N8 just like it is on the N8 Pro version. Otherwise, I am very happy with the N8 overall.
Hands down the N8 is the best way to get that true feeling of playing on an actual NES without the original cartridge. Very easy to use for experienced users and thankfully YouTube is available to help the new folks starting out! When you get your N8, you'll need to revisit this website to get it to work as there are no instructions included!
Anyone reading this comment exactly knows what to expect from an everdrive and yes, it's that good. Now waiting for an additional n8 pro, maybe some day.
However, the carts top label is coming off, not sure how to fix that, are there maybe replacement labels one could buy? Can you kindly let me know.
It's just a cosmetic thing but as the cart is sitting in my avs clear launch edition it is easily visible...
Thank you for the fast and well protected shipping, gladly do business with you again.
