A good-enough solution for HDMI connectivity, but there are better options.
Bought this because I wanted to see how it compared to the RetroTink 2X-Mini in terms of inexpensive plug-and-play solutions for the Sega Genesis. First things first, it works; tried it with a Model 2 Genesis and a Nomad, and it displayed an image as expected. The output image is very sharp, so fans of sharp pixels will love this. Audio output is fine as well; the Model 2 and the Nomad both output stereo audio with this. So far, so good, right? Well, compared to the RetroTink 2X-Mini, it falters in a few ways. One, while this is a good-enough plug-and-play solution for those wanting to just play their Genesis games on a modern display, those expecting the most accurate possible experience may want to look elsewhere. Display lag is present on the LevelHike; testing through the Nomad using the 240p Test Suite, display lag is noticeable between the Nomad's display and the output from the LevelHike cable, about 1.5-3 frames difference from what I could see. The colors also seem a little washed out on my display when compared to the RetroTink. Overall, if you're not too fussed about things like lag and color accuracy and just want to play your Genesis on a modern display, this works, especially given the price point. I still would recommend the RetroTink products over this if you can afford it.
