best in the market

iIf you're like me then you research everything you buy online and may have noticed there are a few NES flash carts around. but most aren't compatible with .fds also everdrive doesn't have the voltage issue other carts have. mine works perfecly, and it comes from a reputable source. a no brainer for me!


    Great product

    This flashcart works great. It plays ever single NES game I've tried perfectly. I did have a bit of an issue getting it to setup - at first, the mappers were not loading at all with the latest OS update. I resolved this by using a brand new SD card (the cheapest sandisk I could find, ~$10 - you don't need a lot of storage). After that, it has worked perfectly. The forums recommend defragging the SD card after an OS update - so I would recommend either doing that, or just using a new SD card.

    One thing I was mainly worried about was shipping to the US, but it really isn't too bad. I used the "17TRACK" Android app for realtime shipping updates. Also, I'm pretty sure it required a signature, which is good news for an expensive package. It did seem to take ~20 days total, so keep that in mind.



      This cartridge is the perfect way to play old NES games! I had a ton of fun with this for the nearly one year I bought it and it's really worth the price. It even made me buy a multitap just to try out the Freddy Krueger game by LJN... And don't make me mention the hacks! Buy this NOW!


        Great functionality!

        Great functionality! But expected better quality on label and shell for this price.

        Definitively worth its price. I have a NES with the CIC bypass mod (run ntsc on pal slowed down) and it works flawlessly.


          Buen flashcart

          Muy buen everdrive para NES, me ha funcionado con NTSC, PAL, con algunos rom de famicom No, el envió fue rápido y los recomiendo mucho, por la atención, un saludos desde México, tardo 6 semanas.


            Great product! ¡Me encanta!

            Works great. I can play all kind of original games and translated games, too. Nice quality board, nice quality plastic of the cartridge. Just two things: label looks too cheap, and SD card is too outside of the cartridge and once it got stuck inside my NES. If the SD slot would be 0.5-1mm inside, that will be perfect!

            Funciona perfecto. Puedo jugar a todo tipo de juegos originales y traducciones. La placa es de gran calidad al igual que el plástico del cartucho. Solo dos pegas: la etiqueta parece cutre y la SD sobresale demasiado y una vez se quedo atascado dentro. Si solo la tarjeta estuviera medio o un milímetro más adentro, sería perfecto.

            He hecho un pequeño análisis de la tarjeta en YouTube, pásate a verlo:

            Super Fun :D

            Recommended if you wan't to try again your NES... all the games you love and some you're curious to discover will never be easier to play :) This can be considered the ultimate NES cartridge!

            Indispensable !

            C'est limite un rêve d'enfant de pouvoir jouer à tous les jeux NES sur un seul et même cartouche. J'adore car il est même possible de jouer a des ROM hack et tout un tas d'homebrew en tous genres sans oublier le support de sauvegarde et de Game Genie !

            This Is All You Need!

            Why have a bunch of cartridges and ware out you NES cartridge socket? Have them all in one! I can't get over how great this thing is! It works great and it will pay for itself. Buy it!

            Great piece of tech.

            I'm playing some games I last played 25 years ago and they are still fun.
            Thanks for helping me get my retro gaming on. Took almost a month to get to USA but was worth the wait. And exceptionally easy to get working. The forums had answers to the questions I had and were easy to navigate for me.

            • 2 out of 2 people found this review useful.

            Great Product!

            I can't say enough good about this. I have had it less than a month and it has provided hours of pure NES entertainment. It is easy to set up, and it works flawlessly with every game I throw at it!

            Solid product, highly recommended

            My shipment seemed to arrive much faster (about a week and a half) than other shipments to the U.S. that I've read about.

            Mine came in a standard gray cartridge and a nice box to protect it.

            My only complaint is that I couldn't get it to work with version 14 or 15 of the OS. I read and applied all the suggestions on the forums, but version 13 is the latest one that works for me. It seems to load all the compatible ROMS without any issues.

            I've read there are some incompatible ROMs, but these seem to be obscure titles I'm not interested in anyway.

            All in all, this is a great addition to my NES collection. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants an easy way to play (almost) the entire library of NES games, as well as ROM hacks and games from other regions, on the original hardware.

            Buy this with confidence and don't look back!

            I am from Singapore and am reliving my childhood now. Great job, Krikzz!

            Took forever to get here just got it today after 5 weeks but it was definitely worth the wait!!!! Man I put it in a boom I couldnt get off for a long time

            What an incredible cartridge

            Just wow. I've found so many things about gaming on the internet and Everdrive is almost the most amazing product about gaming. I bought one of this later my old NES was found and there is nothing comparable to this cartridge. Definitely a must have.

            Excellent product, Well made and reliable

            I own both this and the Fami version and both are excellent. The commercial rom compatibility is top class, the save states on real hardware superb and best of all it allows me to play my own and others hacks and homebrew stuff on the official hardware. Only downside is it comes with a translucent Red case which looks like the CF Powerpak. I like red and the casing quality is top-notch.

            very Great Product

            thank you for the quick delivery it works flawless.

            im just a bit disappointed of the red case
            =( the picture shows a grey one wich i like more then the red transparent one.

            but 5 Stars are deserved anyways because it really is a Top Notch product

            greetings emen3y

            Shut up and take our money !

            Seriously though, I don't think there is anything that needs to be said that hasn't been said already in the reviews below about this wonderful piece of fine machinery. It's easy to setup and a blast to use. Definitely the best gift I received this holiday. Buy with 100% confidence and never look back.

            Ebay full of Fakes

            Bought one off Ebay as the seller claimed it was coming from Quebec Canada. I assumed since it was from Canada (where I live) and it looked identical, it was legit. As soon as I tried putting on the newest OS version, got the red screen stating it was a clone and it corrupted my sd card. Which sucks because I organized all my roms. Started the refund process and bought one directly from your site.

            A must have for any NES owner

            I have had the N8 for a few years now and this product is perfect. It runs almost all the licensed games without any issue, allows save states, loads fast, has a battery so you don't have to reset to save your game files (with Zelda for example).

            If you own an NES you must absolutely get one of those, well worth the price.

            Should Be 5-Stars!

            I just noticed I gave Krikzz and his N8 Everdrive 4 starts in my review. I just wanted to say that was a mistake. This is no less than a perfect 5-star product!

            • 4 out of 5 people found this review useful.

            Krikzz, I love you

            This is the best thing I've acquired in years! I own a NES and I have a few cartridges in here, but now I can have literally all the games I wasn't possible to play in the past! You did a excellent job, Mr. Krikzz! Thank you so much for this. Now I need to gather money to get other EverDrives as well XD

            • 5 out of 6 people found this review useful.

            KrIKzz is the best

            Great product. Shipped from Ukraine and made it to California in under 2 weeks. This seller is legitimately excellent. Please buy with confidence!

            • 4 out of 5 people found this review useful.

            Why didn't I buy this sooner

            Entire games library on one cart. Yes please.

            Word to the wise! When you set it up initially, you get a green flashing screen. Press the reset button 5 times when you load the cart and switch on your nes. Apparently to setup the cart region.

            Also put your favourite games into folders as there is a limitation on the number of games per folder.

            Works like an absolute charm!

            The Best Place To Play

            Great for anyone looking to play all the NES/Famicom games from your childhood that have skyrocketed in price in the last decade. No need to swap carts and blow dust from the pins connectors. Game Genie built in for infinite replay-ability. Very affordable and as always, superb build quality.

            Can't say more it is perfect, the production is perfection itself.
