Not Terrible, But....
Okay, here's the low down of it. Out of the box the Retron5 felt cheap and light, not what I would expect for a system that cost 139.99. The wireless controller that came with the game is kind of wonky and causes delays with the game..., yes I had my TV in game mode. Now the ports for the controllers themselves, I think that's a great idea that it can use the original design controllers, however the player 1 Sega port on the left side sticks to the left, that is it's registering the controller direction pad pushing left. It's not the controller as I bought two of them and tried each one. Switching to the other side it did not have this issue, a huge flaw in my book! Recognizing the games seems to be hit or miss. On some of my games it wouldn't register, but later did register, only to not be recognized the next time. Sometimes you get a weird ROM rip and the graphics are messed up. Speaking of the graphics,that too is kind of hit or miss. They are certainly not reworked into high def. In fact, depending on the game, they look worse than they did on the original systems. That's to be expected, you can't expect games that were designed for old TV sets to look great on the new HD and 4K set but when it's advertised that you can play your games with stunning, new HD graphics and they actually look worse than you remember then it's kind of a major let down. Bottom line, if you have the extra money you don't mind spending the Retron5 can be a fun toy to play around with (yes, that's basically what it is, a toy) but for serious retro gamers the system is just not there yet, especially not for the price.

So disappointed...
Lukie Games is awesome--this review is for the Retron 5 only! I was super stoked at the prospect of expanding my game collection without having to buy, store, set-up, etc. a bunch of consoles at once. But I've tried and tried and tried to like my Retron 5 and it's continuously been more frustrating than enjoyable. As far as I can tell, the single positive trait (which has remained through my use of the console) is the ease of applying translation patches to Famicom games (here lie the two stars...). But the frustrations far outweigh that and I've come to regret my purchase. Firstly, the console is just so, so, sooooo very poorly made. Straight out of the box, the SNES controller port on the right side was unusable. Switched the controller to left side and it was fine (my romp around the internet now tells me that apparently this is a pretty common problem). But it means I can never play multiplayer games with two SNES controllers. And--as many reviews will tell you--the controller that comes with the system is complete garbage. I thought that would be fine, because I figured I would just use the real deal, but this has been a problem for so many games. Even when I adjust 'button mapping' and 'controller to player mapping', certain games simply don't respond properly. I find myself spending excessive amounts of time flipping into and out of various games and Retron menus just to get the dang game to be playable. Then there's the lag. It doesn't happen with all games. And it's certainly not noticeable in the typical RPG or puzzle game. But in quick-paced platformers, like Smartball, Super Mario, Mega Man, etc. I find myself dying sad, unnecessary deaths simply because the response time is that much slower. I've messed with all the settings (including TV settings--i.e. "game mode") and turned off all the Retron filters, to no avail. Part of the reason I bought the Retron 5 was to be able to use the save state function in games that don't have any save ability, but most of them don't play well enough on the console for me to even WANT to play them on it. Mind you, some games play perfectly fine. I've had a blast playing some great Famicom RPGs (in english!) that never made it to the US. And there have been plenty of games that just needed a little adjustment (changing settings, button mapping, etc.) before they'd feel natural. But... I just really wish I'd put my $128 towards the original consoles instead.

Very Happy With Retron 5!
I was a little worried because early versions seem to have been very buggy. This box is v 2.2 and it looks like Retron has addressed many of the flaws in earlier versions. It powers up almost immediately and can now be powered off with the controller. The dreaded "death grip" on the carts is now loosened up. There is still a firm hold on the carts, but they are easily removed. The wireless controller isn't my favorite--use the original game controllers. But the Retron controller is usable if you have no others. All games seem to load well, although a few times I've had to remove a cart a couple times before it loaded properly. (This was when starting up Retron so I suspect it might not have been fully booted.) Hard core gamers may want to stick with the originals and CRTs, but if you want a great retro gaming experience on a new flat screen the Retron 5 fills the bill!

I love my new Retron five,I just would recommend using the original controllers versus the enclosed controller,I just think you get better gameplay usually the original controllers.When you insert game cartridges it takes a real push to insert properly.I love that I get to play all of my favorites from the past but In HD ,it's a beautiful sight,but if you are old school and want that fuzzy old look you can adjust it to your liking.the price was reasonable at 139.95 from our friends at Lukie Games,you can't beat that,plus you can play nintendo,Super Nintendo,famicom,super famicom,game boy color,game boy advance,and sega genesis I might even be forgetting something.i think this is a great family system you can share with your kids and let them learn the classics you grew up playing,plus you can now save your games progress,how sweet is that.plus on top of the great deal I received 140 Lukie points towards free Swag..Thanks again Lukie Games,I love your Company.
