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.
