Turbo Everdrive on my IFU or getting a Super SD System 3 ?
« on: January 29, 2021, 09:29 AM »
So recently through yahoo auction (I live in japan) I got a full PCE Interface Unit, in "junk" state, with everything included for around 60$.

It was pretty dirty and the CD-ROM wasn't working, so I changed the damaged CD-ROM gear (the usual yellowed broken gear), greased the CD-ROM axes, cleaned it, and did a RGB mode inside the IFU itself. Right now it looks like new and works pretty nicely :D

But because I want to win some space and being able to play games easily without switching the HuCards or CDs, I was looking into a better solution.

Here are the 2 solutions I am considering:

Selling the IFU and buying a SSDS3, selling it here would largely cover the price of the SSDS3, and I got another PC Engine (without IFU) that I can use with it.

Keeping the IFU and buying the Turbo Everdrive.

The first solution would allow me to have pretty much everything in one small device, but seeing all the video and audio issues that the device still has make me consider the second option, cheaper but sadly not including the CD games.

So which solution would you choose if you were me, and why? :D

I'm not convinced of the SSDS3 either. It has some problems with AV not working correctly, so I would get the TED.
If your CD-ROM reads burned CDs you are fine on both fronts.

It still has issues with AV not working correctly? I thought they got the audio and AV bugs all sorted? I don't follow the SSDS3 much
