I bought one of these for $20 (the one without HDMI outputs). I noticed even on my HD tv it looks pretty decent where the original NES would have muddy colors. To be honest it isn't much different than playing it on a CRT. Does anyone know why the RES is so much better? And do all of these clone consoles have improved composite signal?
Because this device up converts to a higher res. The Original NES was designed for old TVs that could handle 240i/p over composite, as that was the STANDARD when it was created. Modern TVs can not do anything with the res of older consoles (like I said 240i/p), and what TVs do is treat it like 480p and that looks really bad.
SO it's upgraded hardware designed around modern TVs, for $20, it's a good deal. Most of these NEWER clones should be able do a better job than the old consoles could do. so odds are yes, they should give a better picture.
Just watch out for consoles like the Retron 5, this is pretty much a emulation machine. It takes your carts and rips the ROM and you play the rom. The results look amazing but, it deals with a level of lag and it's not actually playing the original cart.. You do get some nice features tho, like real time save and other emulation features...
I paid $41 form my Retron 5.. so it was worth grabbing to try... Neat little console for what it is.
