PlayGo V2.2 Retro Handheld Review

While the ODROID Go Advance and RK2020 are ushering in a new wave of retro handhelds, there is still a large market for RG350 clones. But, unlike the New PocketGo V2 which was a new device designed to be compatible with the RG350, or the RG280M/RG350P which are modified versions of existing devices, the PlayGO V2.2 is seemingly just a rebadged PocketGo V2.1. Is there anything new in the “V2.2” device?

Supports NES, SNES, GB, GBA, Genesis/Mega Drive, Master System, Sega CD, Neo-Geo, Neo-Geo Pocket, FBA, MAME, DosBox, PlayStation, and Wonderswan.

RK2020 Retro Handheld Review

The RK2020 is the first in a new generation of retro handhelds. Whereas 2019 and early 2020 was dominated by the RG350 and handhelds that were based on the same chipset (think the PocketGo V2), this new generation is based around the ODROID Go Advance. It isn’t the original and doesn’t bring anything new to the table, but does the RK2020 have it where it counts?

Razer Kishi Review: The Ultimate Retro Handheld?

The Razer Kishi is a new device, but what it does is nothing new. There have been many different ways to pair a controller with your phone to play games, but so far all have had similar issues. With products like the RG350 and PocketGO shaking up the industry and seemingly a new retro device every other week, is the Kishi the one to get?

PowKiddy Q90 Retro Handheld Review

The PowKiddy Q90 is a sheep in a different sheep’s clothing, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. At first glance you could easily confuse The Q90 with the LDK Game, since they have identical buttons, d-pad, joystick, and shell. Turn it on and you could easily mistake it for the Bittboy PocketGo since it is pin-for-pin compatible with the budget handheld, compatible to the point that the SD cards are interchangeable. That’s not to say there is nothing new here, but is it worth the added cost?

Anbernic RG350M Retro Handheld Review

The Anbernic RG350 is the standard by which all modern gaming handhelds are measured. For it’s solid performance, good compatibility, and large user base, the RG350 is the go-to for most people who retro game on the go. Coming in to 2020, Anbernic released a new edition to the RG350 line, the RG350M. With an asking price hovering at double the original model and the competing PocketGo V2.1, is this the ultimate retro handheld?

I 3D Printed My Own 5.0L Expandable/Stacking Mini-ITX SFF PC Case

Was looking for a case that would make a great NAS system, but wasn’t finding anything SFF. Took what I learned from my open-frame case and made an expandable, stacking case.

Had a few goals in mind:

1) Printable on almost everything. This case is 185x185mm so anything with ~200mm bed will work.
2) Printable with no supports. Have done it with all my other cases so why stop now.
3) Able to hold any number of hard drives.
4) Should hold together without fasteners.
5) Stack the case in any order you want.

This case supports:

Mini-ITX MB
SFX-L PSU
Dual-slot GPU up to ~175mm in length (triple-slot cooler will work with riser pieces)
3.5in HDD
2x 2.5in SSD
4x 70mm Fan (or a single 140mm fan)

Any of these can be printed multiple times if you need more than one. No glue needed, though you may want to if you use multiple spacers.
