I don't know the name but Krikzz does have a Chinese distributer that may also manufacturer the device with his permission.  They also support what they sell...  In any event if you are interested in the N8 I recommend buying from Retrogate not shopping around online - you never know what you'll get and it's not worth saving a couple bucks...

I know money is tight for many people - and these types are luxuries (i.e. not food or rent) but at the end of the day it's not like knocking a $100 item to $15...  so I struggle to understand why people don't order from Krikzz or SAG.

Yes Krikzz is not exactly Microsoft so you are not sticking it to the man when buying a knockoff. Just screwing him out of monies which could go toward new products, updates, etc.

Agreed, the knock offs are too expensive to consider even if you have no interest in supporting Krikzz. Everdrives feel high quality. Besides, from what I understood from him thr N8 has some sort of encryption. He says he wouldn't be surprised if the unit stop functioning quickly, probably after the next firmware update.

Mmm the worst is that it says everdrive and has the krikzz name on it as if it were original :( y remembered I knew about the everdrive and all Krikzz stuff after reviewing in internet the everdrive 64 ripoff called ed64plus and it was mentioned the bad quality in comparison with the original everdrive 64, that's why I bought mine from retrogate and no regreats, I'll buy soonly a super everdrive :), Krikzz are you planning something against this kind of ripoff like when you release de everdrive 64 v2?

Hi Krikzz,

Knowing your country situation, is it safe that I order from retrogate directly?

Will it delay my order?
