It’s been 8 months since the original RG350 was released with a non-functioning HDMI port, but Chinese devs have finally solved it. We’ve been teased with videos recently, and finally the code has been released to enable HDMI Output for RG350 and RG350M.
I am probably the last person on the internet to review this handheld. I was in two minds whether it was worth it at this stage. The main reason for the extreme lateness of this review are the problems I had with the d-pad and buttons. I thought that this was only an issue with the pre-production units, so I waited patiently for a replacement. Unfortunately it looks like some retail versions are affected by unresponsive buttons as well. My second replacement New PocketGo is a little better, but still not perfect. Read on for my New PocketGo Review.
The RG350 is out in the wild and I’ve had my unit for a couple of weeks now. I reckon it’s the best open source handheld currently available for under $90. Read on for my review.
Unless you’re living in China you can’t easily get a hold of the GKD350H yet, but Taki Udon has put together an all round excellent review of one that he managed to get hold of.
For the past few months speculation has been rife on Tony Jih’s forthcoming RG350 handheld over at the Retro Gaming Handhelds discord server. Finally we have some photos of the brand new open source dual analog device!
Update: 18th September. Now available at Aliexpress!
Not by name perhaps – but this thing sure looks familiar.
The updated landscape version of the LDK is now available to order. Housed inside a similarly chunky looking shell, the LDK Landscape is more of an iteration than an upgrade.
This thing appeared on Tieba today, and from the comments it looks to be a prototype of a new revision LDK Game.
