Protect and accessorise your Retro Gaming Console
Latest in the lineup of retro gaming handhelds from ANBERNIC comes the RG351M, the successor to the ever-popular RG351P retro gaming handheld.
Featuring the Rockchip RK3326 clocked at a speedy 1.5GHz, as well as 1GB of DDR3L RAM, the RG351M is fully equipped to handle retro games from a variety of generations. Ranging from old arcade classics, all the way up to 5th generation consoles (PS1, N64, etc.), and 7th generation retro handheld (PSP, DS, etc.).
Sizing up at roughly 15.6×7.1×1.8cm yet weighing less than 300 grams, the Anbernic RG351M is a highly retro gaming console, and with a 480 x 320 IPS display, you’ll be able to enjoy high quality visuals in all your retro games, and with a respectable 3500mAh battery, you’ll be able to retro game for hours on end too.
Unlike its predecessor, the RG351M features a sleek aluminium metal shell, providing a sturdier, more premium feel during usage compared to its contemporaries.
The Anbernic RG351M features built-in Wi-Fi functionality too, enabling you to access a variety of features such as ad-hoc online multiplayer for retro games, curating box art for your library, and enhanced menu personalization.

I purchased the RG351M as a replacement for a RG350 i had purchased before.
The first thing i notice is the improvement in quality, Stunning metal case adjusted button configuration.
And example are the thumbs sticks are sunken slightly so you are less likely to catch them when using the other button.
Addition of reset button and volume dial is great.
Then i turned it on... ooh the joy!! The software has already ready been flashed and ready to go. Looks how I wanted my old one to be.
I do not need to do anything but play retro games. This is key to why i would recommend to any one why they should buy this one and from Droix.
If you are after a retro game device and are not overly technical like me this is perfect.
The review is honest on what it plays and does not play so well with out tweaking, and a fast tracked delivery i did not have to wait.
ANBERNIC RG351MP Retro Gaming Handheld
I highly recommend the service from DrioX. Super fast delivery with fantastic customer service. The Anbernic RG351MP is great handheld for playing all your retro games. With its premium feel and sharp screen it’s a must for all you retro fans. Top marks !!
When purchasing a handheld I gave myself a small budget of £100-£150. I wanted something that had good build quality, something that didn't have the usual plastic feel. Emulation wise I have spent countless hours in the past configuring emulators and controllers so decided I'm over this, I wanted something I could just pick up and play. I wanted the ability to emulate mostly 16bit consoles and anything above this was a bonus. The RG351MP has achieved this above and beyond, I am extremely pleased with this handheld.
Emulation wise I have been playing Mega drive and SNES mostly, with the quality screen and aspect ratio these looks awesome. I have also loaded some PS1 and PSP games, PS1 works flawlessly but as to be expected PSP is hit and miss. I did have great results playing the PSP Need For Speed games though, these had no lag at all. I have also tested Atari Lynx, game boy original, advance and colour all seem to work great. I have a large collection of N64 which I'm yet to test.
If you have a huge ROM collection like myself I recommend purchasing a larger SD card, I went for a 256GB but I have seen people use 500GB. I also purchased a new SD card for the OS and loaded on the latest version. I also recommend downloading the latest software from ambelec web site and installing this. I was unable to get it to upgrade so i installed a fresh copy instead. The new software comes an improved UI as well as new features such as cloud saves. Another amazing feature on this device is the ability to run other engines such as anything that runs on ken Silverman's build engine (duke nukem 3d, blood, redneck rampage etc.) as well as other engines like Doom, quake and diablo. I hope they continue to build on this feature.
Just wanted to also add I ordered the device and it arrived within 3 days.
I ordered a case too, I recommend leaving it outside to air for a bit as it has that chemical smell you normally get from new mattresses. I left it outside for a few hours and there is no smell after.
All this for just over £100..... amazing! I have already recommended this to a number of friends.
This is my first dedicated retro handheld and I'm blown away by it. The metal enclosure feels premium and gives it a nice weight (not too heavy, but you probably wouldn't carry it a shirt pocket). Everything I expected to work has done, and even some games I expected not to work have done better than I thought. For example, Jet Set Radio for dreamcast even seems playable (although it does have minor hitching). Every PS1, SNES and GBA title has been flawless.
Also I was plesently suppried by the inclusion of a 64GB SD card for games, which I don't remember being mentioned in the product description (although I may have just missed it).
I can't comment on the default out-of-the-box experiance as I flashed AmberElec on it before I even turned it on, but that's so easy to do there's no reason not to.
Minor negatives: the wifi dongle is a bit unweildy with the USB C to A adapter. I only use wifi for scrapping and transfering games, so it's not been a big deal so far.
The lack of bluetooth conectivity for audio is also a shame as I no longer have any wired headphones.
Despite these minor gripes I'm going to leave the review as 5 star, because I knew about both of these issues before I bought it, and (so far) it's delivered everything it promised to.
