Title: Is this a legitimate SD2SNES?
Post by: magictoaster on February 09, 2018, 09:23 PM
Can anyone confirm if this is a legitimate SD2SNES:

It’s sold by Everdrive-shop and fulfilled by Amazon. I want to be sure that it’s a genuine SD2SNES, and covered by the warranty offered by krikzz. If not I’ll order from another reseller from the official list.

Visually it looks like as genuine.
Why don't want to ask the seller whether it's genuine or not?
If the seller tells you it's genuine but will send to you a clone then you can always contact Amazon and fix the problem.
If the store is serious it doesn't make sense for the seller to fool you.

I've contacted the seller and he confirmed that it is indeed a genuine Krikzz cart and that it should be covered by the warranty.  :) I've also opened the cart and it looks exactly like the pictures of genuine cart revision H.

I don't get it. You can buy a legitimate SD2Snes brand new from Stoneagegamer for CAD $252 at the current exchange rate, yet you prefer to pay CAD $329 from some unknown seller?

It's quite simple actually: no one had any in stock and the quoted wait time was around 3 to 6 weeks at best pretty-much everywhere I looked.

You have to add about 20$ shipping plus taxes and import duties to the $252 you quoted.

I've contacted one Canadian reseller and never got a reply so Amazon seemed like as good place as any to order since I basically allowed me a full 30 days to test and make sure it was working properly and was a legit item (it's a fulfilled by Amazon item so it can be returned, at no cost, for any reasons).

In the end I got what I wanted for around the same price, with only a 2 days wait.

well, you don't have to worry about taxes or import duties when it's shipped by krikkz

If it's a Rev H, it's likely legit. Chinese-made ones generally use Rev. F since that is the last board schematic to be made open source on the git. That is unless they modified the Rev F to make their own version of the Rev H (as all the changes are public), but I have not seen that yet.

But in the future, I would buy directly from KRIKzz. Also I think KRIKzz just opened an official Amazon store, but I don't think he has the SD2SNES listed yet.
