The RetroN 5: Our Thoughts

John:

Pro’s: Works great, looks and sounds great, firmware updates are nice, save to SD a plus, classic controller ports are perfect.

Con’s: Cheaply made, pins are very tight at first, controller is good but should have a D-pad

Erik:

Pro’s: Great way to play all carts easy way to test all games I pick up at garage sales. Saving to SD is great lots of sound and graphic options

Con’s:  I agree with John carts are way too snug. Controller could use a dpad. Some games don't work (EA games/repo carts)

What Are Repro Carts? Are They OK and Where Find Them

Repro Carts are unreleased games or import games that are translated and never released outside of Japan. You can find them at retro gaming conventions.
