These have the same issues as some software emulation does, the sounds are skewed in tone, it substitutes the correct note for the wrong one, or a screwed up version of the note.
Compare it next to a real Genesis and you will see. Its one of the major complaints about these units.

Thanks for the answers.
Hope they produce something one of these days that combines their SD function with the ability to use original controllers. Toss in S-Video support and do a bit more work with the audio reproduction here and it sounds like they're have something worthwhile for a Genesis fan, particularly those without an Everdrive cartridge that want to be able to load up an entire romset and play at their tv and don't mind losing Sega CD/32X/SMS support.
As for file extensions, looks like I have .bin, .smd, .gen in my collection. At least one of these formats would refuse to load on my earlier AtGames Genesis plug and play and I'm pretty sure two of them refused to work. I have an entire GoodGen set that looks like it all ends in .gen, so I'm assuming that failed completely to work for me since I remember downloading a bunch of roms somewhere else individually that was a mix of .smd and .bin.
And only one of those file extensions would load up for me.

Does the fact that this is "officially licensed" with the SD card slot mean that the green llight has been given to legally acquire roms off the Internet?

I'm guessing the emulator still outputs an NTSC signal even with a PAL rom.

Sure, Atariboy, send them my way and I'll try them. Thanks.
Wouldn't that result in the game being played faster?
I know that happens with SMS games (which are region free). you can tell whether a game is being run on a PAL or NTSC system by watching it being played, if you listen to the music especially.

That and I also wonder how close we are to a dedicated portable Saturn? Any chance?

Firecore is emulation. Stuff like save states and save game support should be a no brainer but are glaringly missing. Having an SD card slot is a step forward though.
