Sega Genesis Flashback HD - Worth it?

I'm hearing negative things about this system produced by AT Games.  Does anybody have one with any issues?  I'm thinking about buying one but I'm on the ropes.

I heard they are awful. I got the Sega classic collection for the Xbox. I recommend just getting that.

The physical Sega nostalgia systems have all been garbage.

We probably won't get a good one until Sega desides to release an official one.

Or just buy the good games one or a couple at a time as they release on consoles

I'ma get Streets of Rage 2 on my Switch, and Sonic 2, 3&Knuckles and maybe a couple more, but that's about it

Well I got a really good deal on a brand new one and I bought it and I gotta say that it's not that bad at all.  Granted I'm no die hard gaming nerd but all of the games I played on it looked and sounded good, played good also.  It even plays cartridge games so I popped in Street Fighter II and god dam it loaded perfectly and played the same as I can remember from 1993.

I think I did get the latest revised version that has the volume switch on it and the wireless controllers don't have the screw that holds the battery cover in place which made it hard to change batteries the new model just snaps on.
