Counterfeit N64 Carts on eBay?!?; Buyer beware

Well let's get the obvious drawback out of the way first. Original games use maskroms, they will last you forever. The repros use flashroms which have a typical data retention of about 20-30 years. After which they need to be reflashed.

Now to the positive side: You can actually reflash those repros with other games, even with unreleased ones or rom hacks. So that gives you a cheap alternative to buying an Everdrive. But it's also way way more complicated.

The build quality of the electronics inside is really nice, it's actually a very good product. But it looks very different from an original pcb.

For collectors this means that you need to check the pcb the next time you buy game in a Gamestop store or similar because it could be a reproduction. Basicly the same situation we had with NES and SNES for years.
