    Mega Everdrive X3

    This is a good product, but as expected, less capable than the more expensive models. For games, you can purchase the Genesis and Mega Drive Collection on Steam or Fanatical.

    Great for the Price

    Posted by Jon P. on Aug 19th 2023

    I was never a huge genesis fan growing up but I decided I a wanted to experience the games I missed on a CRT. I`m very happy with this purchase. Every game I have tried loads and runs perfectly and I don`t need anything fancy like in game menus or save states. Cheats work which is good enough for me. You can play Master System games too which is great. Highly recommended for the price.

    Bang for the buck

    While the x3 isn’t the best of the best when it comes to this line up what it offers in price to performance is outstanding. What it offers with master system, Genesis and 32x (if you have the add on) is quite impressive and with only missing compatibly for virtua racing I felt I really wasn’t missing out on much of the Genesis experience lol. Hands down best bang for the buck everdrive they have to offer.

    Mega Everdrive X3

    The X3 Mega Everdrive met my expectations. Fast loading and broad game compatibility. I now have the entire library of the Sega Genesis to explore! (sorry Virtua Racing)

    Very happy with my purchase. I’ve had the EverDrive for over a year and it works great. No more need to emulate games on my laptop.

    Best flashcart for the price!

    Posted by Pablo on Feb 2nd 2022

    This Everdrive flashcart has the best price to performance ratio of any of them out there, as I've been able to play just about every Genesis/MegaDrive game that I've thrown at it so far. Most importantly in my case this has been an excellent diagnostic cartridge to run software like the 240p test suite, an invaluable tool for tvs and monitors of both the past and present. It's also helped me diagnose issues with a Sega CD, so I'm incredibly happy with my purchase.

    Good price and build quality if you don't mind resetting to save

    Best basic cartridge for the Genesis.

    Posted by Ernesto L. on Sep 8th 2021

    Love the simple design. The all black model matches perfectly with my Analogue Mega SG. This is the most basic flash cart for the Genesis and it is pretty much all you need unless you want saves states and/or Sega CD support. With the X3 model, having to reset the game to save your progress is a bit cumbersome but you get used to it. Also, you cannot go wrong with SAG; the shipping time, packaging and care is always top notch.
