Anbernic RG300X: Specs, Price & Info

Anbernic RG300X

When it comes to cheap sub $100 budget retro emulation handhelds, Anbernic is well known for quality options. 

Initial Hands Off Impression 

The Good

-It looks great
-Excellent Screen
-Looks well-built 

The Bad

-A little overpriced
-Not much of an upgrade over cheaper options 

I'll likely sit this handheld out myself but it's still a potential option for collectors and anyone who just really likes the look. I think it will be a good handheld although a little overpriced at the moment. I'd drop $70 or less on it no questions myself. 

The RG300X dropped today at the price of $87.99-$95.99 depending on the size of included MicroSD card. It's generally best to use your own card with a fresh firmware install with these devices so I'd advice against spending $95.99. Personally I think the price should have been around $60-$70...

Emulation-wise it should be a great handheld for up to PS1.
