Bah. That one uses a charging base. I bet I'd have to plug it in twice before finishing the job.

Now this one, this I like. (The hardware ain't so bad either!)
My scheduling skills have died of dysentery; I hope to visit at least on a monthly basis.
Still, don't forget to tip your waitress.

I got one of these last Summer. Randomly saw it in the store and couldn't leave without it. It works great and it makes Genesis games look BETTER than they do on the Genesis. The only flaw is that it uses separate a AV Cable than the SNES and you have to use SNES controllers (which isnt terrible IMO).

I actually have an SNES controller that has six face buttons that'd be perfect.
