There is nothing worse than investing time and money in someone else's project only to find there are flaws in the design. In the interest of full disclosure for a prospective builder, here are the issues I am aware of :

Issues:

1. The power switch doesn't really protrude from the case. I manage with the side of my nail, or you could use a cocktail stick / match etc.

2. The screen is 1 mm off central when in the portrait aspect. You might not have noticed... you will now.

3. The sound is quiet. It's a tiny speaker with no amp, so it isn't much of a surprise. It is what it is :)

Problems that might come up:

1. It wont turn on.

2. The joystick falls off.

3. The screen case and joystick case are misaligned
