My Favorite console

Since this has been low use for 5200. I figured I would post my refurbished 5200. I broke her open moded her with svideo to an Snes connector in the back. Wet sanded and polished the plastic and was lucky enough to to get one of the last bezels at Best online.

I'm new to the whole console modding stuff really but not computers or repairs. When I set out to make it svideo/Composite with dual mono I loved the idea of it from NES rgb mods others were doing. It's cleaner and easy to use even the sound output for 2 ports is right there to connect it up. Did this on a few 7800s as well. Thanks for the complement.

No way I would rather fix them if that were the case. I buy them from a guy named Helder on assemblegamers forums. They are 3d printed plastic and it's own pcb. He has a few different styles, usually for NES RGB upgrades. I like it because it's like HDMI before it was, and with a well shielded scart adapters I use it works really well. I also have some really well made svideo/Composite cables that are nice too.

WOW.  I love that 5200!  Very nice and the wet sand gave a nice appearance on the 5200's shell.  I've been trying to find a way to refinish my 4-port back to the original piano shine it had but wet sanding might be another option.  She's a beauty!!

You should try "Armour All" on it.  It shines up the old consoles very nicely.
