Eh, considering the screen replacements for the Gameboys, GameGear, Lynx have all become a million times better, I see going back to the ghosting/fading screens completely unnecessary. The Genesis looks kind of cool but don't understand the slanted angle design take.

 

McWill Modded Lynx II is where it's at =)

They look pretty nice, and I appreciate they're putting in features which juggle modern utility (HD output, save states etc) with authenticity for the aficionados (NTSC switching). I also really like the aluminium case on the Game Boy clone.

I was surprised they're using monochrome screens, precluding playing with Game Boy Colour or Super Game Boy palettes. That's a bit of shame for games like Metroid II which was designed in tandem with, and arguably best enjoyed, with the Super Game Boy.

I think these look pretty nice. 

 

One question I have on the 77 and Genesis machines is this (I should probably make a new thread because it also applies to the NES and SNES re-releases too):  What is the best option for displaying the HDMI output on an old CRT TV that only has composite input?
