Interesting MV-1B with custom board and flex cable design. This might be the first I've seen with case mold directly copied from an AES.
Dumb question as I don't do MVS: are MVS boards on Aliexpress original or new clones? I mean the board itself.
it already looks extremely brittle on the pics lolLooks cool wonder if the plastic feels cheap

The tweet has some replies showing the inside. There's actually some kind of impressive engineering going on to make the MV-1B fit, and the USB controls. (Personally I'd prefer the control ports in the right place.) I guess I'm out of touch, but I thought $320 was kind of cheap at today's prices compared to the other CMVS options available. I was originally somewhat interested in the Omega MVS due to its AES-like design, but this is much closer.China certainly has the means to pull it off on the cheap because I know we in the US sure didn't/don't especially now with the price of oil going through the roof...
I read a member stating they didn't really care for it because it's a direct copy of the AES where I believe it should have been at least MVS red..oh well, may have to give this a look see up close myself. as I have been very pleased with the design/quality of some other items I purchased....price is a little steep whereas the other stuff I purchased was nowhere near that cost but....
Home consoles usually use some kind of ABS, but going by those pictures it looks like some kind of resin mould.Actual home systems don't exactly use the highest quality plastic, maybe it's a solid reproduction.
Would be better if mvs carts themselves looked nicer. They're pretty no frills. I want to see that sweet aes artwork on my carts.
How long before we run out of 1-slot boards, I wonder. I know SNK was popular in China but there is a never ending torrent of these.
It’ll be interesting where prices go once the surplus runs outHow long before we run out of 1-slot boards, I wonder. I know SNK was popular in China but there is a never ending torrent of these.
True I guess, but if you're an MVS collector like me, you don't mind. I'm just happy to have the look of an AES console. The AES design is simply my favorite console, bar none.Would be better if mvs carts themselves looked nicer. They're pretty no frills. I want to see that sweet aes artwork on my carts.
