Absolutly stunning. Hooked up many things, impressive quality, even better than back-in-the-days.

As you may read on many test this Framemeister is a very solid product.
It works perfectly with pcengine / genesis / super famicom / etc... with RGB.
I haven't try it on other devices yet (like psx or saturn) but I'm sure it will work fine. Besides it also comes with 2 HDMI input that can be used for ps3 or 360.

Like a lot of people, I debated whether or not to buy this due to its price. After seeing the video quality of this unit, though, I should have purchased it sooner. This is the real article. Video output is pixel perfect, and scanlines at 720p look absolutely gorgeous. If you're a retro gamer (SNES, Genesis, etc), you owe it to yourself to get this unit if you're using an HDTV. It doesn't get any better than this.
Note: The unit comes with a Japanese 21-pin RGB adapter which is not compatible with SCART cables. If you have a console with a SCART cable, you will need to buy/build an appropriate adapter. Also, despite not being as good as RGB output, S-Video signals look amazing on this unit.

If you enjoy playing the classics of generations past on their actual hardware and have a discerning eye then you really only have two choices, buying a RGB input capable CRT TV or buying the Frame Meister.
Each choice has its challenges and rewards. But if you are tech savvy and know your 240p from your 480i then a single day of fiddling should teach you all that you ever need to know to operate the XRGB-Mini.
Just hook your system up using the best connection method available going from RGB/Component(D-Terminal) to S-video and down to the barely tolerable composite and the XRGB performs admirably.
Outside of the crystal clear scaled image quality you can get by using the right cables the real attraction is the scanline emulation.
Nothing from the previous eras of gaming looks right without those characteristic black lines between each scanline that shows up and magically improves the image quality on any ordinary CRT.
Due to differences in technology these artefacts are missing on modern LCD and Plasma TV's so older generation games look harsh and odd when displayed on them. That is why the XRGB-mini is a must. This is as close to the CRT experience that any money will get you, so what are you waiting for?

If you think you are a serious retrogamer, then you really need this fine piece of engineeering. Simply put, the XRGB Mini is the best video upscaler on the market for your HDTV to make your retro games look as good as if they were being played on old arcade CRTs. Yes, it is that good. Plus it is easy to use, compatible with a large majority of old consoles, updatable and has english menues.

This isn't cheap but it's worth it. Quality video processing comes at a price, especially with an amazingly low amount of lag added (less than 1 frame). It really shines with 240p/480i input, but 480p looks great as well. If you want to play an older system, this is the way to do it. It'll look better than you've ever seen it, nearly indistinguishable from an emulator.
The difference between using RGB through the mini vs a composite input on your TV is like night and day, it just looks perfect. It took hardly any adjustment on my end, it was practically plug and play. Keep in mind that the cable provided for rgb input is Japanese scart (JP21), not European, so you may need custom cables or an adapter for RGB. Upgrading/downgrading firmware is painless too, unlike some devices.
The only downside I see is that it has less inputs than the older XRGB-3, but overall the XRGB-mini is the better unit. It does the job by itself, where the XRGB-3 often needed to be paired with another scaler to get the most out of it.

To be honest, I was really hesitant in buying the XRGB mini. However, I did a lot of research online and read that this was the best possible way to play those retro games. Of course, the price was a huge factor for me. However, once I received the unit I was REALLY impressed. The quality picture you will get with the XRGB Mini is INSANE!!! The picture is really comparable to a SDTV CRT. If your having 2nd thoughts on buying this converter because of the price, do yourself a favor and buy it!!! You will not be disappointed. I still cannot believe the quality picture that this unit can produce.
