The 15$ genesis that was used for a lot of modding experimentation and has long since been dead, I kept the parts and figured this is a great use. The converter indeed isn't as good as the gameboy player. What's really sad is the converter has outstanding video but there's video interference when I make video captures of it (doesn't show up on my tv). Another thing that stinks is when you enable the enlarge mode the pixels are no longer a uniform size, oh well it was still a fun thing to build. Overall the gameboy player wins. But atleast now we know. Thanks for all the nice comments everyone!
