159 or so UK price from Amazon and with Amazon Prime, free shipping with Prime.

Hate to seemingly sandbag a fellow enthusiasts sales thread on A.org, but do your homework on these things before buying one from anywhere.  There's been a terrible number of people let down with the build quality of them.  I'm one of them, and I backed the Kickstarter program on these (and honestly regret doing so).

A fun little piece of kit, but do your homework and read reviews on them before buying.  I found the build quality on the one I got to be worse than a $90 Android tablet I bought awhile back, but YMMV.

ThinkGeek.com has them for $149.99.   Yours is ~$185...
I cannot compete with thinkgeek. I will be minus 0ver 300 euros when these have all been sold, so no profit whatsoever.

I've heard great things about the GCW Zero consoles. They appear to be easy to develop for, well built, and long lasting. Which is more than I can say about a lot of devices I've seen sprout up over the past few years.

 As for me, I had a JXD 7300, but sent it back to the company because it was problematic.
With a little bickering, I was able to get a JXD S7800b back instead, which from everything I am hearing, is a major step up from the 7300 featuing improved specs, better design, and high compatibility. Apparently I can run both Dreamcast and PSP on it not to mention DosBOX at very high speeds... that's a sale to me. :)...  


I looked into the JXD S7800b from   http://www.geekbuying.com/item/JXD-S7800-RK3188-1-6GHz-7-inch-Tablet-PC-GamePad-Android-4-2-Quad-Core-IPS-Capacitive-Touch-Screen-1280-800-2GB-8GB-318433.html  and after an hours research bought one too (16GB for$149.95).  If all else fails, I can surf and watch my Netflix with a decent grip on the device.

I keep getting messages asking if these are still for sale. It was 2014. All the consoles are long gone. I am unable to edit the first post in this thread to reflect this reality.
