Newer x3 carts don't come with a Master System pause button, it may cause problems with a few Master system games.

If this is not a problem go X3.

To run most games correctly, have Master System FM and eeprom support, go X7.

X5 is the best when you don't need the extra support but still want true sram support and Sega CD backup support.

X3 is the cheapest but you need to be careful when playing sram games, shutdown while playing (it can happen due to power outage) means the loss of the current progress.

For all the bells and whistles one can wait for the Mega Everdrive Pro.

Both will do fine, if you have the money and can wait a few more months you can wait for the Mega Everdrive PRO.

Yeah I was going to also say, just wait for Mega Everdrive Pro. Sega CD through a flash cart is too great to pass up.

i chose to get the x7, i know about the pro coming out but if it's anything similar to the mega sd the sega nomad needs the triple bypass mod to be able to play sega cd games on it which i don't plan to do anytime soon since in itself is $100 to get the kit and thats only if you have the tft mod which itself is $50+

Is it against the rules to ask if anyone's interested in a New, CIB Mega EverDrive X7 that I'm selling on Reddit? Can I post a link to it (Reddit, Retro Marketplace) here or should I just PM? Please advise, I don't want to overstep. Thanks!
