    A great investment for your SEGA Genesis. Feels great to run translation hacks and prototypes on real hardware. Pretty much a must have in the current landscape of retro gaming, especially if you love running retro games on real hardware.

    Great cart for the price

    Posted by Robert Markewicz on Jul 22nd 2022

    This cart works exactly as I hoped. It doesn't have all the frills of the more expensive ones, but for the price it can't be beat. Super simple to set up and add your games. Running the games on original hardware, the games run super smoothly and the menus are relatively easy to navigate.
    I did have an issue with mine where battery saves were not working properly, but I reached out to StoneAgeGamer via email and they got back to me within an hour and solved my problem.

    I highly recommend this!

    Best everdrive I ever used

    Posted by Jerry Valle on Jul 5th 2022

    This is by far the best ever drive I have the privilege of owning. Compared by the Chinese clones I have used I am glad to have this genuine X5 everdrive for once even though I had to wait a bit due to the ukraine conflict

    Great all around

    Posted by Sophie Hendricks on Jan 26th 2022

    The Mega X5 has everything you need out of a basic Mega Drive/Genesis flash cart, and then some, such as the ability to play Master System games (with pausing). If you are like I was and worried about the 7 megabyte max rom size, there are no retail release games that are that large, so there's little to nothing to worry about. :)

    Works Great

    Posted by James Fox on Apr 7th 2021

    I got this for use with my 32x and Sega CD. All the 32x games play great and backing up my Sega CD save data is easy.
