Just came across a Craigslist ad for something called the "Game Box Hero". I've never heard of it & there doesn't seem to be a lot of info out there other than their own website & some eBay reviews. I emailed them about a list of games built into the system & got a response fairly quickly. Just wondering if anybody has had any experience with them.

So this?

Seems to have a video I'll watch in a moment.  Either it runs carts, or it's a shady illegal as hell ROM box for fools to pay up deeply for.

It seems somewhat troubling that the guy in the video didn't know what MAME was, and couldn't for the life of him pass the first goomba on SMB.  You'd think that they could have done a better job presenting their product.  Its just a packaged Raspberry Pi set-up with a ton of ROMS, which isn't anything overly special and I'd imagine fairly illegal...

 

but, for a electronic dunce who has no real desire to put one of these things together himself, perhaps this kind of thing is an option?
