    Super HD System Pro

    Posted by Michael Medina on Aug 24th 2022

    I love this thing. It's very interesting considering the capabilities. There's only 2 things that bother me about it. The color they chose is not the greatest and the fact that it emulates the Super Grafx. I use it with my Super Grafx which is kind of pointless. I'm probably going to start using it with my pc engine instead. Overall I love it!

    Awesome but...

    Posted by Simon Arcand on Jul 7th 2022

    With all the possibilities that this device offers, i’d say it’s worth the investment. The PC Engine and Turbografx 16 have a lot of hard to find and extremely expensive games so being able to acces them all with one device is great indeed. Not only there’s that, but also the option of greatly improving the picture quality. Both analog and digital video are supported so you’re covered with CRT and more modern tvs! The only thing I think needs improvement is that the device is not able to properly accommodate the Turbografx 16 console…

    Great addon

    Posted by Steven C on May 27th 2022

    If you are interested in a turbografx16 this is definitely a must. You can play cd games and super grafx games all on a base TurboGrafx or PC engine.

    Does everything!

    Posted by Mike C on May 11th 2022

    I’m using this on a CoreGrafx and it’s become one of my favorite accessories in my collection. The PCE and SuperGrafx (all 6 games) functionality is perfect. The CD support is really good but finding the right combination of options and System Card can be a little tricky now and again. The video options are really good and the HDMI output is fantastic.
    The NES FPGA core is as ridiculous and unnecessary as it fun. Why this is a thing i’ll never know but it works great and is a cool novelty.
    The cover art view is really cool and looks like something from the era of the system. Be prepared to spend some time renaming files if you want your whole library to have covers, it will find most of them, though.

    When you factor in the price of a super grafx, a TurboCD, a flash cart, and an RGB mod the $300+ price point on this thing is super appealing. Everything it does, it does really well. I’d love to see a firmware that made pairing / recommending a SystemCard with a CD image easier.

    It also looks really awesome. People grumble about it not matching the system’s white, gray, or black plastic but i think the bright blue looks amazing. And MAJOR kudos to TE for having this powered from the console and it having another power cable in the mix.

    Great product

    Posted by Mike M on Feb 21st 2022

    Works great and totally worth the money. I used it on my north American model. I would recommend that if people do this they take apart the super hd system 3 and reassemble it after the board is fully connected.

    All in one ODE

    Posted by AJ on Feb 19th 2022

    If you have a PCEngine or one of the many different models, this is an all in one solution that let's you play every possible game. The CD games run extremely well, which is fantastic because a majority of the software really worth diving into on the PCEngine is CD based. Two of the big selling points are the Super Grafx games and the HDMI out. If you run a modern set up with an HD tv, then the output is super crisp and looks amazing, especially with the sharp filter. It has the ability to RGB out as well if you use a CRT tv that's compatible. Either way it's a tremendous improvement over the built in composite video. The Super Grafx compatibility is a nice addition, but there are literally less than 10 games that were made for it. It's nice, but you're honestly not missing much without it. That being said, it really is the ultimate addon to the PCEngine and totally worth it if you're interested in experiencing the best the library has to offer.

    Fantastic

    Posted by david holmes on Jan 30th 2022

    The Super HD System Pro is an amazing accessory for my TurboGrafx 16. The games load fast and I have yet to run across any problems. This has been the best purchase I have made for My Turbo.

    Super HD System 3 Pro

    Posted by A So-So Upgrade on Jan 26th 2022

    To review this product, a few points need to be made first and then separated by the users who would buy this.

    Let's give an overview first:

    Firstly, as it's predecessor the Super SD System 3, this device plays all Hu-Cards and CD games (CD-ROM2, Super CD-ROM2, or Arcade CD-ROM2). It also includes a Sega Genesis/Mega Drive 2 port for composite and RGB out with the appropriate cables. That remains the same but with better tweaks to the video and audio.

    However, new to this incarnation of the device is an HDMI output for straight HDMI video and audio without the need of a scaler such as an OSSC, Framemeister, or Retrotink 5x. Also new to this device is support for Supergrafx games on a standard PC Engine device. The device uses the FPGA on board to emulate the remaining chips the SuperGrafx games need to function, much like the device already does for the Arcade CD-ROM.

    This is where we encounter the first problem. Normally, you'd be able to play Hu-Cards still while this is attached to your PC Engine. But for SuperGrafx, since there's a conflict, you will not be able to play your SuperGrafx Hu-Cards while this is attached to your SuperGrafx. So if you're looking to use this on a SuperGrafx, you'd be better off buying the original Super SD System 3 from here and using that. You won't get HDMI out or SuperGrafx emulation, but you really don't need it if you have a scaler.

    Another problem is price. This device is $320. When you factor in everything it does, it's a great price and if you don't already have the Super SD System 3 and want to play on original hardware, the price is a steal and highly recommended.

    That being said if you already have a Super SD System 3 and don't care about an HDMI port or SuperGrafx support, then it's just best to keep what you have for now until support stops for this unit. In my opinion, there's nothing justifying paying another $130 to upgrade.

    If you already use a MiSTer device and don't care about original hardware too much, you don't need this at all. Your device literally does everything this device does and is constantly updated.

    My small gripe personally is that this doesn't come in different colors and instead of a neutral smoke color like last time, they went with this solid blue. Especially when we have replacement shells available for the PC Engine, the blue really stands out and not in a good way.

    So in conclusion, with better devices like the MiSTer out there, a predecessor with better support on a SuperGrafx console, and the $130 upgrade cost for existing users just for an HDMI port and an FPGA core for a SuperGrafx, I'm just giving this 3 stars.

    However as I said if you don't have a MiSTer or one of these devices and want to play everything on your PC Engine console, then I give this four stars.

    It's just not for everyone when there's better solutions out there for the money.

    Super HD System 3 PRO

    What a deal! At first $300 may seem like a high bar to clear, but when you consider the cost of the PC Engine library, not to mention the absurd prices of the CD based games, and the added benefit of multiple ways to output crisp image and sound, this adapter more than pays for itself. Personally, I love playing on original hardware on a good old fashion CRT. This product was the perfect solution to my needs. The added feature of an HDMI output meant that I could play my games on any tv or monitor in the house. I'd recommend this to retro game fans who want to get the most out of their PC Engine.
