I have had very few things to complain about with this unit. Firstly, It arrived in less than a week all the way to the U.S. which is incredible since I went by ECO SAL, good job Solaris! When the unit first receives a signal from the game console, it takes a few seconds for it to start outputting a signal, so you miss the first few seconds of the bootup screen. Or maybe it's just my TV. I tried to plug in my computer to it via HDMI but it didn't work. Haven't tried any other HDMI devices. But the upscaling looks fantastic, the colors are bright and vivid and the scanlines look amazing. I kind of also wish there was a way to get audio straight out of the unit instead of from your TV. But that's about it, overall great unit probably worth the money if you're really into this kind of thing, though I do wonder how much it actually costs to make because it seems pretty expensive for all that it does. But there isn't really a good alternative that I know of. Very happy with my purchase, and again great job Solaris!

I was skeptical at first given the price, but it really is worth it. The picture quality is outstanding.
The image quality of original game hardware is identical to running an emulator on pc. Retro game consoles still work after 20+ years, and this upscaler adds new life to them, keeping them running on modern displays for the next 20+ years.

Make sure you read up before buying this product. All the pros and cons are well documented all over the internet. If you live in Sweden I can recommend that you use Paypal. First I tried to make a bank transfer but international transfers was a lot more confusing than I expected. I ended up canceling my order and using Paypal. Responsive communication and service from Solarisjapan that configured my payment method via the site interactive chat.
Acquiring the newest firmware from the manufacturer will fix a lot of issues, for example English language support. The site was in Japanese but I had no problem to navigate and fetch the updated firmware.
I have previously imported a few international products and a step-down adapter usually did the trick. This time I messed up and assumed an adapter would work, it didn't. The power supply blew up. Luckily my unit did not take damage and I ended up using my PSP charger instead since it supported the correct volt interval. Don't make same mistake as I did. There are a multitude of compatible chargers out there in case you don't want solve it some other way.
Lastly, if you live in Sweden, make sure you use the correct cables. Get a PAL scart that is custom made for the framemeister if you are planning to hook up PAL systems. The Japanese scart won't work with other systems. In my opinion the price is justified by a great product. I recommend it to the enthusiast that have time and a fair bit of knowledge.

If you are into retro gaming, this device is a MUST - well, if you don't want to sacrifice the space needed for a CRT TV...
functionality and options are great - almost overwhelming at first, one small point: why isn't there an option to include a euro scart adaptor right with the device? I had to order one from a different site and I'm still waiting on that one :/

I bought this for my Sega Saturn. I wanted to create the best quality experience I could for my streaming endeavor. I bought it several months ago, but I was waiting on a RGB21 cable for my Saturn. While I had the composite cable, the quality was nice, but you could see the washed colors composite created. Once I got my RGB cable, the device really shined. Every pixel is perfect and the colors are vivid. I will never regret spending money on this device.

This is a great product. Compact, easy to use and simply super effective at making your retro consoles display an excellent picture. Solaris are super too, delivering excellent communication and delivery options.

An excellent way to get upscaling and deinterlacing for your older consoles, and with dual HDMI inputs, you've pretty much got everything you need to hook up your stuff to either a TV or a capture device while making the output fit your needs!

Bought this item after i saw several very positive reviews for it on the net..using it with my jpn sega saturn ( love those shmups ) my super famicom and my jpn neo geo aes..this product makes the games look amazing..scanline heaven..i would prefer to have english instructions included though as getting your head around all the functions is a bit difficult..if you want to see your old consoles at their absolute best on a modern flat panel then this is for you!

It took me a long time before buying the xrgb mini because of the price, but it worth it.
The quality with 240p consoles is incredible on my bravia 44'.
The lag is really low, less than 1 frame I think.
My japan neogeo looks like arcade! (my euro neogeo don't work with it, maybe a problem between euro and japan scart connections even with adaptators).
The ps2 is really good too, anime looking games like Persona are great!
With euro gamecube image is better than without xrgb, but not really great like 240p or even ps2. Maybe due to the not so good video Out of the GC.
In conclusion, if you are tired of your old CRT television taking so much place in your apartment, buy the framemeister and get rid of your old tv.

Using a projector to play old nintendo games and it feels stunning, 8 bit games never looked better. Well worth the price.
