This comes after waves of reports, including from Modern Vintage Gamer, about the XBHD having brightness issues that leave games darker than they would appear otherwise. In my review, I personally didn’t run into brightness issues and I’m still happily chipping away at ‘Sudeki’ in my free time. Still, I’ll look into getting my unit updated as well.
EON Gaming is also running a Black Friday sale on their website that covers all their adapters for a cool 20% off. This includes their XBHD, Super 64s (N64), and their GCHD MK-II adapters. If you’re looking to give an old console second wind, this adapters are perfect for the occasion.
