    Best paired with an Analogue Pocket

    Posted by R.J. on Jan 19th 2022

    I love my GBA and all of my GBA games, but the wear and tear on my cartridges was getting concerning, especially since I was fortunate enough to get an Analogue Pocket. I wanted to make sure I could revisit my library without putting the carts through further risk of damage. I got the Everdrive as a set-it-and-forget-it type of device so I could comfortably game without worrying about the degradation of my library or even potentially damaging the Pocket from swapping games constantly.

    Anyway I love the Everdrive and it’s such a great value for what it does. I have access to my entire library within this device and also have peace of mind that my aging cartridges won’t be further worn out. Couldn’t recommend it more.

    EverDrive GBA X5 Mini (Ruby)

    Posted by Hermes Rosario on Jan 5th 2022

    It is the first EverDrive product that I have purchased and I am very impressed! It is a quality product which allows me the flexibility of playing a variety of games without having to constantly change cartridges. The games look and play great! I am also pleased to have bought the Deluxe Edition, which includes a protective case to place my EverDrive cartridge as well as an extended warranty. I am almost certain that this will not be the last time that I will buy an EverDrive product. Kudos to Stone Age Gamer for their fast shipping and great packaging!

    Wonderful product

    Posted by CMYK Hendricks on Dec 31st 2021

    This is a great little device, making it so I don't have to switch cartridges all the time. The worst part of it is setting up the optional emulators for GB, GBC, GG, SMS, NES, etc. Also, something else strange is that instead of the GB/GBA roms, I was given a set of NES ones, which was unexpected, but I already had most of those from buying a GB everdrive earlier, so it wasn't a huge problem to me :)

    I love my Everdrive for my SP!

    Posted by Joe Martin on Nov 18th 2021

    The Everdrive X5 is so awesome and brought new life to my GameBoy Advance SP. I've had prior experience with the Everdrive 8 for NES and MD, so it's brought the reliability, speed and ease of setup and use that i'm already acquainted with.

    This is a magnificent device! It not only helps me preserve my collection but it opens the door to the wonderful homebrew community, a must have device to help you preserve and protect your collection for years to come.

    I even like the color, it's SO rad. :)

    Works extremely well. Games load up in 2-3 seconds and you can organize them however you like. It's very easy to set up and absolutely worth the price for convenience alone.

    Packs a punch

    Posted by Joe on Apr 26th 2021

    I ordered this Everdrive as I have been getting into GBA modding and collecting. It plays all of my backups at full speed with no issues. I couldn't be happier, this is an easy way to play through my collection without having to switch carts or bring my collection with me.
