    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.

    after the last update to a better menu, it is the best way to play the cd games, with out the cd drive thoose are faling bad and getting very expensive to fix or buy, and the cd games not scrached up prices are out of this world. best way to go!

    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.

    What an awesome product!

    Posted by Dan Blancett Jr. on Apr 10th 2021

    The SSDS3 is amazing. Works right out of the box. Format your SD card correctly for the size and you will have no problems. Going from RF to RGB via HD Retrovision component cables is a leap in quality you will not believe. Compatible with all roms and CD images I have thrown at it. With all the options this device provides, get a recap and jailbar fix, and you will have the best Turbografx 16/ PC Engine experience there is to be had! Take all precautions mentioned in the disclaimer. Do not open the device unless you know what you are doing.

    This is the end all for your TG16 and PC Engine, save yourself the money of getting some of the best games for the TG16 and PCE by buying this flash media add on. Playing Hucards and CD roms, you really cant do any better then this.

    Excellent product, easy to use, in addition to being able to play great titles like Castlevania Blood of Rondo and Snatcher from the CD system. The right size to be attached to a Pcengine and its RGB output gives the option of using it in PVM or with an OSSC in more modern screens

    Works awesome

    Posted by Michael on Apr 8th 2021

    Loads faster than my CD-ROM, and no need to worry about save space. Highly recommend.
    No I don't have to worry about my super CD-ROM 2 from breaking down again.

    Great product, but a bit pricy and not very stylish

    Posted by Kyle on Apr 8th 2021

    As far as functionality goes, the SSDS3 is great. Having a TurboGrafx-16 flash cart, a Turbo CD ODE, and RGB video all in one is fantastic. Haven't had any troubles with any game I've tried, and it looks great with HD Retrovision component cables (they're not "officially" supported, but they work just fine). Pairs wonderfully with the jailbar removal mod!

    I'm using mine on a North American TG-16 and it is a VERY tight fit - I had to completely remove the shell and plug in the PCB to make sure I didn't bend any pins, and then screw the shell back on after it was inserted into the expansion slot. And I still couldn't tighten the screws all the way without the plastic bending. I would NOT recommend trying to insert this with the shell on, even with the screws loosened.

    In addition, the product just looks... strange on a North American TG-16. This was clearly designed for a PC Engine where it fits and looks much better. For a product this expensive, I wish there was a design that would look and fit better on North American TG-16 systems.

    That brings me to the price... this is pretty expensive, even as far as classic game enthusiast equipment goes. I've bought ODEs and flash carts for other consoles for less than half of what the SSDS3 costs. However, there is simply no other all-in-one solution like this for the system.

    All in all, those small complaints aren't enough to dock this product any points. If you're a TurboGrafx/PC Engine enthusiast, the SSDS3 is a MUST and I highly recommend it. Just be careful installing it. Stone Age Gamer also shipped it very quickly!

    "honestly at this point you may want to just buy a pcengine for it. fits fine on my core."

    The title is an actual quote from a thread I made when Rondo of Blood crashed yet again and I looked for help on how to fix it. I really want to love the SSDS3, I really do, but it just doesn't work with US TG-16s very well at all. Mine constantly crashes in the middle of nearly every game I try and it absolutely loves to bend and push in the pins on the expansion port (and they weren't misaligned or bent prior to trying to put the SSDS3 on, this TG-16 had never had anything in its expansion port before). I hate having to leave this type of review because in the brief moments that it DOES work, it's amazing! The games look amazing coming out of my OSSC and they play just as well! I almost forget all the troubles and frustration I've had the whole time until the game crashes and I'm plunged back into the depths of trying to get this thing to work yet again. At such a premium price point this amount of trouble is just unacceptable, this thing really needed a US TG-16 adapter or shell option. For something that's supposed to be plug and play, it really fails at both plugging AND playing! Oh well, guess I need a CoreGrafx to get this to work, on top of having to buy a controller adapter and a new ac adapter!
