More than anything else, the Pandora Box DX does what it says it does. It is a relatively simple to configure instant massive arcade game collection. In my opinion the emulation quality is very good. The CPSIII games in the collection for example run great. My only real issue with it is screen tearing. The emulation itself runs smoothly, but there is frequent screen tearing and if that sort of thing bugs you then it will continue to bug you. Some folks weren't crazy about the console games on the list, but I think playing things like Gunstar Heroes and Alien Soldier on the A1U is pretty rad. I gave this review five stars partly because of the very high level of customer service I received throughout my entire A1U mod project.
You are better off getting a Pandora's Box 6 and upgrading it to 3000 games. Most of the games on Pandora Box DX are console versions.
Great little device packed with lots of games. Easy to install and very light in weight.
This is my first Pandora’s BOX. I mainly bought it for the shmups. There is a lot of them and pretty good titles like donpachi and a few other Cave games. I use it standalone directly hdmi to my tv with Xbox controller. The menu system breaks games down by Genre which is very helpful. I play the Mostly 80’s and 1990’s Golden Era arcade games and they work well. No hassle of emulators to deal with like the rom packs you get online, everything just works. No hassle. Highly recommend for those that want to kill a few hours without any issues.
From a plug and play standpoint, it doesnt get easier than the DX. UI has gotten better for navigation. Only issue was more with length of the family harness. It just barely makes it to the box from the sticks/buttons. You can see in photo blue painters tape on 3/4 player module so I can plug the harness in “blind”. This is in TMNT cab. 6” longer would make all the difference.
