    Tried it in both a Genesis and a Retron 5, works like a charm with all my Master System games! Excellent product.

    I have been using this with my Retron 5 and my favorite SMS game Phantasy Star. Works like a charm!

    As own the old SEGA unit I plan to get this ASAP since so I can use it on the Retron 5 wean I get it. There's reports that that this and old SEGA version works with the RetroGen adapter on the SNES "I don't know it's fact".
