Black Miyoo Mini Selling Fast

 It looks like the Black Variant of the V2 Miyoo Mini is now sold out at the official store on AliExpress. At the moment, they have only 39 of the transparent blue left, 74 of the retro grey and 163 of the white left. I expect the transparent blue to be out by tomorrow. No word yet from Miyoo about when a restock is coming but I'm sure one is on the way.  Since releasing at the end of 2021, the Miyoo Mini's popularity has been drastically higher than anyone including Miyoo could have predicted... I'd still suggest waiting for a restock if you are interested in the Black shell. Most of the other places selling the Mini are just drop shipping them at a higher price.  Store Link Below (Disclosure: this link does not have any affiliate codes embedded and I don't benefit from any sales) US $58.00 | MIYOO MINI V2 Portable Retro Handheld Game Console 2.8Inch IPS HDScreen Video Game Consoles Linux System Classic Gaming Emulator https://a.aliexpress.com/_m0S3SUm My V1 Miyoo Mini

TRIMUi Model S: Still Working On It

I had planned to review the TRIMUi Model S soon but I don't feel like it's something I could recommend for $50 at this point. I do see a lot of potential with this device so I'm holding out hope. There are developers working on custom firmware and the manufacturer of the Model S is still working on updating things. At minimum it's a good sign that they are actively working on problems.  After updating to the firmware 0.105 I have noticed some definitely improvements with most of the emulators although screen tearing seems to actually be worse with Gameboy than it was originally. Sound issues are still hit or miss too. All in all there has been improvement but it's simply not there yet.  The biggest problem with this device is the screen tearing and other screen issues. There seems to be a problem with the screen driver not working well with the device.   I actually like the crisp buttons on the Model S, the solid build, convenient near wallet size  and t

microByte Retro Handheld Crowdfunding Goes Live on Crowd Supply

Micro systems seem to be getting more and more popular these days. While I'm not totally sold on a 1.3" screen, I'm hearing the screen is extremely sharp which could make up for that. I normally don't take too many risks over $50 in the SBC Gaming realm but this one comes in at $45 so might be worth the risk. A premium model pledge is $60.  What does grab my attention is the 6-7 hours of GAMEPLAY you can get out of the battery and the open source spirit of the project.  It looks like this tiny handheld console will easily handle NES, Gameboy, GameBoy Color, Game Gear & Sega Master System. Atari Scummvm emulators  are currently being developed for this open source console.  Check out the link below for more info:  https://www.crowdsupply.com/byte-mix-labs/microbyte
