I bought an Atari Gamestation Pro and a Kinhank Superconsole X2 Pro

I always thought the Atari Gamestation Pro looked interesting from the reviews and videos online so when i saw it was only $50 on Amazon i bought one the other day...it turns out it may be the worst thing i EVER bought...more the half the games wouldn't start...when you stick the Micro SD card in it causes unplayable pauses in the games and there is terrible lag with the really bad controllers...i don't know if i got a bad unit or there a lot of people lying online on how good it is but anyway i was so disappointed in it that i went online and ordered a Kinhank Superconsole X2 for $119...something i should have bought in the 1st place...wow what a GREAT system!..it has everything..every system and game you could have ever want and no lag or anything with the controllers..its amazing how for only $70 more than the Atari Gamestation you can get a unit that does and plays everything

Thanks for taking the time to give all of us a heads up! You're an official cautionary tale! LOL

another thing that bothers me about the Atari Gamestation is theres a screw on the battery compartment..so to put the batterys in you have to scrounge around and find a phillips..at least the instructions say "Screwdriver not included!" i dont get the need for a screw when there's already a latch

Yeah I hate that. A lot of Halloween and Christmas decorations are like that, and if you don't screw it in, the latch sticks out.

An Amazon review says that the Playstation, N64 and Dreamcast games don't work on the Kinhank.

Weird, I've had zero issues with my Gamestation Pro. Love playing 7800 Food Fight on there. We put in in the arcade and folks seem to be enjoying it as well? We just use wires for the controllers, so no batteries are needed and that works out great for that application. For $50 it's hard to beat...

it could have been a bad unit because like i said i can't keep the SD card in the slot or all the games will pause every couple seconds

most of Dreamcast games and the PS1 games that are included have worked fine..i haven't tried the N64 but they say its a mixed bag.
