  1. Anyone know if Raphnet USB adapters work with the dock?
  2. I figured the plastic of the Game Gear cart around the label was above the level of the label or would protect the label somewhat. It looks like the label is in an indented part of the cartridge. I suppose if a label is already peeling or loose it will catch on the adapter much easier though. All I have is an Everdrive when it comes to Game Gear games and have only used it to verify the adapter worked..
  3. Do you think they would change the Pocket like they did with the Noir? Remember how Analogue made it seem like it would be the same Nt Mini (one final run) but it ended up having some improvements that were announced after they sold out.
  4. Ugh, tell me about it. I forgot to buy the clear case protector back in my 2020 order. Now, I wouldn't get it until 2023 even without buying a Pocket and would pay that much in shipping. I used the shower dust trick to install my Nintendo Switch screen protector and it worked great. Get the room nice and steamy and apply. No bubbles or dust.
  5. I tried finding a Game Boy Light a few yeas ago but they are expensive and most of them were in very poor condition so I never got it. Finding handhelds used without scratched displays is almost impossible. I am excited to try out that color.
  6. Yeah, I am going to be bummed if it doesn't ship tomorrow as I am guessing I am looking at after Christmas at that point for delivery. I live in the Minnesota in a rural area so the delivery times are always about maximum estimated especially when they use a ground service. Then I have to hope they feel like actually attempting delivery on the day they are supposed and not blaming a failed delivery on my driveway being blocked or inaccessible.
  7. I bought one of each because I couldn't decide for sure at the time which color I wanted but knew I was going to buy two of them. I am paranoid about getting mobile displays with dead pixels or other screen issues that probably aren't covered by warranty and figured if I bought both at least one would have a perfect display. The second one is pretty much a backup. I have bought two of the other systems I care about as well for similar reasons. I would hate for one to be defective or develop a defect and then not be able to get a replacement.
  8. For being delayed so long due to part shortages I am a bit disappointed the software isn't more polished or complete, especially with the dock.
  9. Personally, I hope they re-confirm their plans for actually shipping out the pocket orders this year and maybe give a loose/estimated timeline of how the Duo pre-orders move forward. I feel a brand new product would not be a good idea right now. I have to believe at some point there will be a new Nt Mini that is basically a repackaged Super Nt under the hood but it is not the right time to announce a new product.
  10. I have had several Android phones with amoled screens over the years that end up looking similar within 2 years of use. Typically it is the status bar area like where the clock, wifi icon, notifications icons are located. It can also be seen where the onscreen buttons (back, home, recent) are located. It is usually really noticeable on gray backgrounds. My personal phone experience is why I don't want an OLED tv. I keep TVs for 10+ years and someone telling me it will be fine and that current OLED tech is less susceptible isn't enough to get me to buy one.
  11. Yeah, I'd be fine with them telling me what the "fix" or preventative measure is to avoid the "rare" situation that would lead to apparently something shorting out. I know they might fix it under warranty but once the warranty has run out it would be nice to just modify it yourself to avoid a potential short.
  12. People just aren't buying/paying? I know with ebay fees, original taxes and to cover the original shipping and shipping to resell you'd have to sell those things for like $650 to break even I would imagine. I figured they'd be selling for well over $1k though I guess simply based on prices before the Noir was a thing. I haven't been checking though. Regardless, it warms my heart to know unopened or basically new systems are being sold for essentially a loss to those people. I thought they would sell out really fast. I guess the demand was a pretty vocal minority of people. Super Nt went pretty fast.
  13. If you have the money and even a hint of desire to get one then go for it. It will not drop in value. If you change your mind later you can get your money back selling it, easily. I'd much rather people in forums like this who are on the fence go for and possibly make money on it someday than scalpers who's main purpose for buying it is simply to jack up the price and make money.
  14. Be on Twitter and their website smashing F5 if you want one. They're going to go fast.
