Awesome product

It loads games super fast, you'll never need any other cartridge to play those classic games as they meant to be played. And yes, it sticks out on the front of the GBA SP, but that's not much of a problem.


Awesome! Works beautifully

I bought this to help my kids learn to write homebrew z80-like and ARM games. It's been awesome for that, and now I just wish I'd bought two - the link cable is beckoning, and they want to make a multiplayer game.



I finally bought it and I have to say i'am very impressed about the quality! Everything just works fast without issues. Some people get annoyed that the cartridge sticks out but that doesn't bother me at all.
The shipping was fast it only took one week to arrive here in Sweden! Krikkz you are the man!


Awesome Device!

I have to admit that I didn't want one at first due to the cartridge sticking out, but I eventually caved and went ahead and bought one. I'm glad I did.

This thing works exactly as you'd think. You just drag the roms onto the sd and you're ready to go. You can organize them into folders if you'd like.

This thing loads up the games super fast! I also have an EZ IV and the Everdrive is much faster. On top of that the EZ IV needs the roms to be patched with some old software. Not really a problem, but still kind of annoying.

The RTC works fine, although the only way I know to set it to a specific time is through Boktai. Maybe the ability to set it without going through Boktai can be added through an update?

All in all, a great device. No bs, it just works.

I should probably make a video because ive just got so much to s

I'll just keep it simple, get down tl the nitty gritty


Works as advertised, no issues.
RTC works great so it's an ideal solution for backing up pokemon RTC games.
Drag and dropping is all thats needed, unlike needing to use the software like the EZFLASH 4 does, which i also have.
The high ROM limit (32MB) for things like the gameboy video pack roms if you're into that or want to back up those carts.
Can detect what kind of save file is necessary (eeprom, flash, sram) and even then you can adjust it.
Communication with gamecube games (e.g Pokemon Ruby, FireRed with Pokemon BOX or Colosseum)

The fact that theres some part of it sticking out. Not a big deal but i wonder if the X7 woukd use a regular size. The EZFLASH 4 has a regular size so it is feasible, but again.... not a big deal.
No gameshark support. Maybe in an OS update??

I'll have to go in depth in a video or something.

EverDrive X5

I thought I was going to wait until November for this, but it came to my door, the same day Mafia 3 came out.

Sucks how Pokemon Yellow. As the start up screen comes up. Pikachu sounds a little derpy and Crystal, the game kinda looks potato.

But all in all. I get to play tons of games.
Plus with save states, I can abuse the system with cloning :D
