Works just fine with an Australian power brick too, just make sure it matches the power requirements.

The system itself is 5 stars! It's bigger than the other minis, like double the size. But it's still nice looking and very light, but doesn't look or feel cheap.
The menus and music in the menus are top notch. Emulation is really good. Some people have mentioned shimmer in some titles, and it is apparent. But it's not a big deal. If you set the screen to the pixel perfect mode, in some games it goes away or is much less noticeable.
On my 4K Sony TV, the games look and sound amazing. Just make sure you tweak your video settings to get it to look how you want. On default settings games could look warped.
The selection of games is damn near perfect! I didn't grow up with the turbografx, I was more of a Nintendo guy. However I did play the odd title here or there and tried a couple of these games via emulation. This system is loaded with hidden gems, and amazing shooters. Shooters aren't my favorite genre, but I'm loving the ones on this mini! I'm so excited to try and finish them all.
On a final note, I ordered this on a Saturday and it arrived to my door on Monday. I'm located far away in Canada, which is amazing, especially considering I ordered on a weekend.
If you have the slightest interest or even hesitation to pick this up, don't pass it up! I think this mini is much better than the NES, SNES, and even Genesis one.
Spectacular job Konami, given how you've disappointed gamers in the past decade or so.
Despite this, Konami has made a really fantastic product here...especially if you like shoot 'em ups. Those are about half of the library here, and most of these are great representations of the genre. Beyond that, there is a decent mix of games...some are absolutely necessary (Bonk's Revenge, Rondo of Blood, Bomberman 93 & 94) and some are virtually worthless (China Warrior, Moto Rotor). But that's to be said of any of these mini systems, even those made by Nintendo.
Other problems with the system include the lack of a second controller, the inconvenient placement of the cable ports on the back, and the lack of translation for English-Japanese; if you don't know both languages, some games will probably be completely unplayable, as they will be in a language you don't know...though this is probably more an issue for English speakers.
Problems aside, the build of this system is outstanding and the game library is pretty solid. If nothing else, this is a great, fairly inexpensive way to experience a whole set of games that you never played years ago and probably wouldn't be able to acquire easily now. I would encourage anyone nostalgic for the system to pick it up, as well as anyone who, like me, has a thing for shoot 'em ups.
For the most part it runs well and I don't have any complaints. There are some games with issues though, Lords of Thunder and Neutopia II are a bit buggy.
