1Up Pi-boy and LCL Gameboy

Post by Dawilson123 » Wed Jul 17, 2019 2:59 am

I've decided to sell my 1Up Pi-boy. Although the build quality is superb and it having a pi 3B+ SBC, there are a few things I don't like:
1. Slightly bulky / bigger than a DMG. Finding a protective case that will fit it is a PITA. Currently lives in a bubble wrap sleeve!
2. No dpad - up, down, right and left are separate buttons
3. Not sure how scratch resistant the case is

It was also an impulse purchase which I've very rarely used.

What I do like:
1. With it having a pi 3b+, its quick
2. Has all the ports you need
3. Preimaged microsd, preloaded with ROMs
4. Joystick and L1, L2, R1 and R2 back buttons
5. That its transparent and you can see all the internals
6. Build quality is superb

So it's up for sale and I've replaced with a (cheaply bought) LCL Gameboy with Rpi 3B

Any one with experience of the Pi-boy or LCL gameboy?

Photos of the latter attached. Personally I like the exposed counter-sunk screws on the LCL and ethernet port. Plus I know he had to do it as the original mounting points would be cut through and covered by the Rpi board. Especially like the SNES controller-like L and R shoulder back buttons. Also like the transparency of the case although the green isn't everyone's cup of tea.
