Pandora Box Fsmily

Anybody can advise which is the best to get currently ?
Very confusing as there are so many different versions and it seems that the original one no longer comes with games :/

Many variations indeed, with each at different price point depending on the features. You may want to narrow down based on price, unless you want to get the most expensive version?

As of now, there is even a new version with wifi, i.e. the Pandora Box 3D, using Quad Core Cortex A9 at 2GHz speed with a 8 Core Mali 450MP8 GPU. It can even run PSP games. Check out below video:

There are links in that video if you want to purchase it.

Most of the Pandora Boxes have low quality joystick and buttons, so you may want to DIY upgrade to Sanwa parts.

Another alternative would be the NEOGEO Arcade Stick Pro console which is a joystick console with built-in NEOGEO games. As it is by SNK, this means the build quality is there, unlike those no name questionable joysticks in the Pandora Boxes. Plus, someone already hacked it to run various arcade hardware emulators such as PGM, CPSI, CPSII, CPSIII, Cave, Konami, Irem etc in addition to all the home consoles like MD, FC, SFC, GBC, GBA etc.

There are more than 1 China manufacturer of the Pandora Box, meaning there are bootlegs of the bootleg.

Also, there are home and JAMMA versions, single joystick or dual joystick versions, build-in single or dual LCD versions etc. Lots of variations.

Check out carousell, ebay, aliexpress etc, even local game/gadget shops are selling it.

There's a new Pandora Mini/Portable also known as Powkiddy A19 that is basically a Pandora Box squeezed into a handheld.

Can play it on the go and also connect via HDMI to TV. This is a good replacement to the bulky Pandora stick.
