    A little disappointed, but still love it

    Posted by Spencer on May 3rd 2021

    I bought the second revision, the one with the "fixed" video quality, but I still see noise when playing on an HDTV through a RetroTINK. Also, games crash seconds after boot up when the "return to menu" button input is enabled. Took me forever to figure out why games were crashing. But even with its problems, this is still a great device for its ease of use and upgraded (over RF) video.

    SuperSDSystem3

    I've had this for a few weeks now and put it through it's paces. It is a solidly built piece of kit, the plastic housing doesn't have that "cheap" feel that you can get with other aftermarket parts like this.

    Compatibility is pretty great as well. I've only come across a few cd games that get a read error, though deleting them and re-ripping them to the SD card fixed them.

    The hucard games with 100% compatibility no problems there.

    My unit comes with the updated PCB so I don't have the audio issues from the first revision, nor did I have to fix the orientation of the tantalum capacitor. The RGB picture is nice and crisp after I performed the jailbar fix on my PC engine.

    Overall I'd give it a 4 Star review just for the few incompatibility problems this far out from release, even if the fix is super easy it's a little annoying to have to remove the SD card everytime I find a game that errors out.

    Super SD System 3

    Posted by Oliver on Apr 19th 2021

    This is what you need when owning a PC Engine. I got mine two weeks ago and tested many games with it. Everything is working perfectly. Picture and sound quality are also great. It is expensive but worth the price.

    Does what I wanted it to do

    Posted by Nick H on Apr 17th 2021

    For reference, using with a standard PC Engine and video output is through an Insurrection Industries SCART cable connected to an OSSC.

    Installation was fine enough, though I made sure that all of the pins in the back of my PCE were not bent ahead of time and slowly attached it to the system. It did require a little bit of force to get it on all the way which did make me a little nervous, but it's on there and I don't plan on taking it off anytime soon.

    A big reason I wanted to get one of these is for its easy RGB out, taking any Genesis Model 2 cable (aforementioned SCART to OSSC.) That worked out just fine, no issues getting it connected, and the picture looks nice and crisp. Sound is good too, though as others mention there is a slight but noticeable amount of noise whenever CD games are being loaded. It's not a dealbreaker by any means, but for the record it is there.

    Other than that, it loads and plays games just fine. Been throwing a bunch of HuCard and CD-ROM games from both NTSC and NTSC-J regions and I haven't encountered a problem with any of them yet. Very quick loading. The micro-SD card slot is easily accessible if you need to pop it out anytime to update your list.

    Overall, I haven't had a bad experience with this yet and say it's a fine accessory to have.

    As Good As It Gets

    Posted by Adam Earhart on Apr 16th 2021

    I bought this and let it sit for a long time. I thought it was going to be harder to set up than it was. Once I opened it, I saw very simple instructions sitting right on top. I plugged it into my TG-16 after setting it up and was very surprised at how easy it is to navigate. The games run flawless and I now have a very easy way to play my TG-16 collection. If you are on the fence....don't be. It is a very nice product.

    Pricey but worth it for not having to deal with CDs ever again. Replaced my EverDrive and works great on a SuperGrafx. The latest update fixed some issues that bothered me but all good now. Wish the font was a bit smaller but not a big deal.

    SUPER SD SYSTEM 3

    Posted by William Kimble on Apr 10th 2021

    I was a little hesitant to buy the SUPER SD SYSTEM 3 due to the price, but I have to say it was totally worth it! There was a little trial and error setting it up but most of the errors were on my part. Once it was all set up I was extremely impressed. One thing of note, when you connect it to you TG16 be VERY VERY careful as it is very easy to bend the pins even when you think one of them is not bent. If you are not paying attention it can happen and have you scratching your head trying to figure out whatever random issue it causes.
