GP2X WIZ Unboxing! Yay!

Well guess what arrived today? It's my GP2X Wiz (that I waited like three months for)! Here is a video I made of unboxing this beauty, I hope you like! I know you guys hate blogs with just a single video in them, so I put a review in here as well. Sorry for the low quality, had a lot of trouble doing this covertly. I'm especially sorry for the grammar mistake in the beginning, I'm not having a "smart" day.

Review:
The Wiz is really great, very well worth your money. All the complaints I have heard of Wiz seem so completely invalid to me; the issues with the dpad is totall BS, the screen tearing issue is unnoticeable, and, um, I can't think of any other known issues. In the video I mention that the touch screen is solid, and wow, does that really help when playing games. The fact that it's open source means that I'm soon going to be able to take my entire collection of sonic games on the road, thanks to a large community ready to make emulator after emulator for it. In fact, I'm considering taking a PS2 emulator, shaving it down until it can only play one specific game at full speed, and dub it as "Katamari Player", so I can take that too on the go.
But I'm rambling now. It's an easy 9/10.

Score: 9 -- Superb (9s are a hallmark of excellence. There may be flaws, but they are negligible and won't cause massive damage to what is a supreme title.)
