The 8BitDo M30 is a Wireless Controller for Mega Drive (Sega Genesis). This is the second of them to acquire, again AliExpress, in the 8BitDo official store (8Bitdo Official Store), for use with my Analogue Mega Sg, which I have already spoken here in Skooter Blog. I can also use it with my Sega Genesis, my Mega Drive III, my Master System II, and even PC, USB Cable, or wireless with the use of a adapter.
I have spoken a lot about the features, advantages, disadvantages, and motivation to purchase a M30 in 8BitDo article on the first one. Also showed his test on several islands. So I will not repeat that information here, I recommend reading the review of the first 8BitDo M30 before continuing.
The 2nd 8BitDo M30 They come in a package equal to the first. The control is also exactly the same. The only notable difference is the receiver. It now comes with only one screw. The other screw hole just a black adesivinho, certainly to show that the absence is intentional.
As I have been following the reviews from the 8BitDo M30 I understand this absence. With the first version of firmware, the 8BitDo M30 I was presenting problems when two of them were used simultaneously. Any interference or the like. Some people claimed to have solved or alleviated the problem by removing one of the screws.
These problems are eliminated with version 2.00 from the firmware, so much so that my first 8BitDo M30 It has two screws in place and shows no problem, because I installed the latest version of firmware it once arrived. But I think the 8BitDo decided to take the second screw anyway, to ensure. The 2nd 8BitDo M30 It has come with the version 2.00 from the firmware installed.
The absence of the screw is something to be regretted. A lot of people does not care, but I think there is a reason for the receiver have been designed with two screws. It is more tightly closed with two.
Another difference I noticed in the 2nd receiver 8BitDo M30 It is that it is harder (hard) to fit in Mega Sg. Observando bem a o plug nota-se que os pinos de metal estão levemente desalinhados com a furação no plástico. Não compromete o funcionamento, mas certamente não deveria ser assim.
