    Would purchase again

    Posted by Jon P. on Jul 24th 2023

    I purchased this cart over the pro because I really didn`t need support for 99 save states or playing FDS games. The games load in about 3 seconds and everything I have tried runs perfectly. I purchased a red case and I also like that you can see it flashing when loading games if you leave the lid open. A cool little bonus. It was also on sale which I couldn`t pass up.

    still really good even for being the lesser model

    Posted by Alton Cope on Oct 1st 2022

    I started with this one and upgraded to the N8 Pro but don't get me wrong, this is still really good and well made for what it is and the price point. If you don't think you need all the bells and whistles of the Pro then this will absolutely suffice! 5/5 highly recommend!

    Everdrive N8

    Posted by Vincent Tobasco on Nov 8th 2021

    I am very pleased with my purchase, Stone Age Gamer has insane fast shipping too so I love buying from them. The everdrive N8 is great, does everything I want it to do! I can play the entire NES game library from this one cart and I am easily able to use save states in order to save and continue later in games like super mario 3 so I actually have a chance in beating the game eventually. Couldn't be happier!!

    Everdrive N-8

    Posted by Rogelio Toledo on Oct 30th 2021

    Has worked perfectly for me and I can now store all my old games away and still play them. It is very nicely put together with high quality electronics. I was only planning to buy the NES version of the EverDrive but I liked it so much I've also bought additional EverDrives for my N64, SNES and GBA. Excellent product.

    Everdrive N8

    Posted by Eric R Walchli on Sep 10th 2021

    Combined with my newly modded OG controllers and my AVS this is the best NES experience I have ever had. You may not get as many homebrews or savestates but if your looking for just good old Nintendo, either NA, JP, or PAL you got it right here without looking further.

    Ever Drive N8 Pro

    Posted by Christopher Kozicky on May 17th 2021

    This thing is incredible! Very easy to install the needed software and to load games. The menu system is intuitive and snappy and the save/load screen is very easy to use. This will save me so much wear and tear on my console not having to constantly switch out games. Well worth the investment. Stone Age Gamer was wonderful
    To work with and shipped incredibly fast. I recommend this to anybody who still enjoys playing their old NES games!

    Great product all around

    Posted by Paul on May 13th 2021

    Great product in every way. Works perfect for having all your NES games stored on while your originals are safe from wear and tear. Plays like the originals and shell and label from SAG is super high quality.

    Perfect for speedrunning!

    Posted by FBS on May 12th 2021

    I bought the Everdrive N8 about 3 years ago from Stone Age Gamer, and I use it all the time. It supports everything I want to play, and the built-in savestate support is perfect if you want to repeatedly practice part of a game. If you're thinking about getting into speedrunning, you'll see that Everdrives are very popular. Now there's also the N8 Pro which was released sometime after I bought the N8. Personally, I think you can't go wrong with either choice.
