I've had a vanilla NEOSD MVS since it was released and have definitely enjoyed it. That said, having 4 flash slots on the PRO version so I can switch between my favorite games without having to wait to reflash games or fiddling with swapping MVS carts and the ability to play CD games is what sold me on the idea of upgrading. So I preordered one last night shortly after the new batch went live.



Booth carts have problems (my dont have any) not sure what is more worse.

What are some of the issues with the NeoSD PRO that you can think of?

Issues:
From what i did see in the past.
1. Spacer problem between the 2 PCBs causes trouble on newer batches, cart is hard to insert. Leads to glitches or failing connections between the pcbs.
2. Voltage problems if someone uses powersupplys not strong enough or to old, leading to glitches/ sound- graphics problems. Dont know i use an old Megadrive powersupply and its works.
3. Some ppl had tiny pixel errors in some games but i guess thats fixed. Actually i did not spot on my so i cant really tell.
4. Some ppl did receive faulty? carts that did not work on the hardware they use.
5. Support took long or was bad in the past, some ppl posted half a year on TO forums without getting the problem fixed. Dont know if its now better, i guess forums are taken down for that reason.
6. 1 year warrantly, i saw posts that you dont get much support after that is gone. Cant tell if that is true or not.
7. Firmware updates getting rare after a new TO product is released.
8. If you live in the EU you have to pay import dutys now, because of tax saving practics of TO. But thats something you have to do when ordering Darksoft too.

The spacer problems are a legit issue. I had to shave the openings on both mvs and aes pro. They did not make solid contact and on some boards wouldn't work at all.

Also I'm experiencing sound issues with my mvs pro when playing NeoCd games on 2 slot boards. I've only experienced this issue with NeoCd games though, not regular roms.

You should consider buying a NGCD and getting in on the last batch of the furrtek ODEs.

It's a miracle that the Neo CD sound works at all, but it seems to be quite buggy, even with the optimum image files. Not sure if it's really good enough to play and ignore for some games. Too many sudden volume changes and stray noises.

Mine worked on one console and not the others. Thought it was power related but turns out it was the contacts that weren't making a good connection and I was getting a blank white screen. Like original Neo Carts if you shake them they are suppose to rattle a little. The same goes for mvs carts. If you shake the Neosd Pro and the pcbs hardly move that's not good. You might even experience some glitches or get errors because of it.

After shaving the inserts at the botto the cart slides in the slot smooth like butter.
Hi Razo, I just got an neosd pro mvs and have the spacer issue with my unit. Works great as long as the bottom spacer is off. What file did you use to modify the spacer? Or did you use a fine sandpaper?
