Ok the thing that drives me nuts about all these cheap Chinese gadgets is the button placement and the D-Pad or lack thereof.
I could not enjoy playing emulated games with that style D-Pad and that horrid button placement.
Nice screen can look pretty as can be. But overall, I don't see the fuss about this. I guess I'm a PSP $#@!.
The thing people need to realize is that if you have been a part of the scene for long enough (almost day one for me) you grow a sort of bond with it. It feels better when you install everything yourself learning how everything ticks.
I'm so into my PSP Slim right now that I don't think any gadget could compete for some time.
