πŸ”΄Pandora Box 5S 999 Arcade Gaming Console. BEST Retro experience for all the family. 2018


hey guys welcome back now let me just
ask you were you around in the 80s if you were do you remember playing all
those classic arcade games like Street Fighter like Golden Axe like puzzle
bobble like super sidekicks if you are like me I spent hours and hours in the
arcades playing those games that’s why I was super excited when I saw this
product the Pandora’s box 5s now this will give you 999 of those classic
arcade games guys that you play at home relive all of those childhood memories
all of that nostalgia and it costs less than 150 dollars guys so I think at that
price point this could be an amazing device which will give all of the family
hours of fun I think it’s amazing guys and I can’t wait to share it with you so
as per normal let me do a quick unboxing then I take it through the setup we’ll
try some games check out what this box can do and then we’ll end up with a
conclusion so it all of that being said let’s get started! so this is everything again inside the
box guys and starting the right we can see we get to spare buttons so one of
the good things about this box is guys is if we do like changing things around
so if you can change these buttons to a different type or even change this
joystick all these things can be customized so if you know happy forever
reason you can’t customize it to your exact liking so to start with you do get
to spare buttons so if these get damaged or worn out you want to change them you
can change it for these two you also get a USB to cable so another benefit of
this box guys is that you can plug this in directly into your computer or your
Xbox or even your PlayStation so if you do want to use this joystick to play
maybe a fighting game or a certain game you can plug this right into your
console in computer and just use this as an external joystick you get a standard
kettle need depending what you region you’re in you get the power break and
you’ll still get a VGA cable guys if you do wanna plug this joystick into a
monitor or maybe an old TV you can plug this in and get more of a retro feel I
lost you get the manual go sister shows you basically how to plug it in what the
buttons do and just basically how to use it so it’s pretty straightforward are
some typos like we got the audio connection and stuff so very
straightforward to use guys literally it’s a case of one cable HDMI into your
TV one power cable and you’re good to go and lastly guys here is the actual box
so this is the Pandora 5s 999 games 2 player arcade stick console now there’s
a mouthful so as we can see we get two really nice feeling joysticks you have
six buttons each for the actual games then you have a start button and a coin
up button how you actually add in virtual coins for your game depending on
what you’re playing but you show you the ports on the box guys so here you got
the on/off sweetie you’ve got the power input this is the HDMI out and you can
plug this in guys as mentioned just one HDMI cable in here plug the other side
into your TV plug the power in and you’re good to go
this way you plug in your VGA cable so good thing about this box guys it does
have a built-in speaker so just to give it more of the arcade kind of experience
so yes the sound can come out of your TV but this sound will also come out from
here and you can adjust the volume with that speaker over here and if you don’t
have any sound you can actually turn this off or you can also plug in some
headphones and lastly we got the USB port so as mentioned guys if you do want
to plug this into your console or two computer plug your USB cable into there
plug the other side into your computer or console and you’re good to go so
initial impression guys it does feel very very
solid in hand feels like a really good build quality the buttons and gos they
have they’re really nice arcade feel obviously that remains to be tested we
have some really nice Ryu artwork here and it’s made a really nice acrylic so
real has a really nice premium fuel okay so now let me plug this in go through
the setup and lets us see exactly how we can relive our 70’s and 80’s and 90’s
childhood using this device so any first power on
the box guys after seeing that intro this is the screw you’re gonna see on
the left hand side you have a list of games and is a total of 999 and on the
right hand side you see a small clip of the game so navigated liscus press down
we can see we just have pages and pages of games guys and seriously if he did
plague arcades in the 70s and 80 the 90s this is literally like heaven well it is
like heaven for me guys because uh so many of these games I’ve played before
and I spent so much time in the arcades so either you can navigate quite as
pressing up and down and because he became through the pages we are now on
page 2 or we press the right under control we can see we can jump through
the pages at a time and I mean there’s literally is have so many games guys all
sorts of fighting games puzzle games sideways scrolling shooting games just
tons and tons of stuff guys I’m sure if you paid any kind of games in the last
30 or so years you definitely will find a similar game or maybe even the exact
game I mean definitely games like you know Street Fighter because marvelous is
Capcom all the old classics are on here guys just just an amazing amount of
games I didn’t mention it before guys but when you do pair this on this panel
does have backlights and it’s all cycles through different colors and makes the
whole thing look really nice so to get to the config screen guys you have to
press the button here so there’s actually a small button which is config
let me press that now so the very first thing we see in the config boys is we
get to see an ID test this basically means I can now test out and make sure
that the buttons are working ok make sure that stick is working okayed so we
can press up down and we can see is registering properly left right we can
press Start we can press coin and we can press TABC de oh so it’s a quick little
test you can do just to make sure the hardware on this device is all working
correctly next up
the credit settings obviously the games are gonna be free we have Auto exit so
if you’re in the game but you’re not actually playing here this will take you
back to the home screen after three minutes and in case you’re wondering
guys this is not my background music this music actually coming out of the
box at the moment the set game mode you can’t change anything here so the
quality optimization means that the graphics obviously back then weren’t
very smooth so a lot the older games would have loved jagged lines and lot of
rough edges this will give you slightly smoother graphics but you’re not
identical to the old arcades you’ll turn this off Bromley went on for now so the
game setting basically means we can change the difficulty of games we can
change some of the game options so for example I’m regularly playing
afterburner but let me change how many lives have start with a press a on that
so we can see by default difficulties of four covers again we can make it harder
we can make it six or eight or make it a bit easier down to two so you do have
the option to change difficulty of these games so I’ll see back in the day in
arcades but deformities games were said to ask for but sometimes I didn’t see
someone said to 6 or higher and it definitely made a difference on how hard
the game was but depending on how good you are you can adjust this but only one
is for just to make it identical to the arcades you have the option to edit at
the game this guy swagger to be for example we can say I want to display or
hide this game so I can say press a we can see that now as a warning so next
way which means this is now gonna be hidden and I we want to conserve
settings and reboot and we can see now that the console is rebooted and we
don’t have afterburner 2 in the list anymore so it’s obviously guys there’s
so many pages of games like literally so many so if you don’t to go through a big
list every time what you can do is you can go through the settings and just add
certain games to your favorites or just hide the game so you don’t want to play
so this means the next time that you start here this console will only show
you the games that you ready plays so I think it’s great having those kind of
features so you can customize it how you like ok so let me now just take you to a
couple of games just to show you I mean there literally is have so many games on
here guys I don’t know what to show you but let me show you a couple of games
are used to regularly play back in the day unless he had this box performs so
you understand guys these games were designed for the arcade so they were
designed to take your money so the playability had to be destroyed
it couldn’t be too easy because that means you’d put your money in complete
the game and never play again but at the same time it couldn’t be too hard
because if it’s too hard nobody’s gonna play so they had to get the playability
just fry it which means it’s easy enough for you to get
– then it has a right level of difficulty that makes you want to keep
on paying and we can see guys we can definitely play these games for hours
and hours on end because they all had really really good playability take my
super high ball how many if you guys saw infinite people and just loved their I
definitely did I can’t wait from platform so I remember
playing this game when I first came on arcades and it was bit special because
it’s the first time you got to see some blood in in games and it really was fun
and also these characters all had special finishing moves like ripping
your head off or ripping out your heart and other kinds of fun stuff like that
but hair up I should we need to obtain this
football game as well it’s very basic I mean comparing that to FIFO some of the
modern games when you have like 25 different buttons this literally is just
pass shoot lob and that’s about it guys it just has that playability though take
a shot from there get a rebound case you’ve got the ACE players like the
fastest on the pitch in your team unless you can score
yes he can you’ll have loads of these puzzle games of all guys which just had
the other game to just have amazing playability what’s red and bad for your
teeth a brick so in summary guys I think this is a
fantastic device I really have had a lot of fun playing gear as mentioned all of
these games are designed specifically for maximum playability and when you
start playing them you can see exactly why I do think this is fun for the whole
family guys just because there’s such a large variety of games we have a
thousand games guys so I’m sure there’ll be something for everybody to play now
for the cynics that are saying when I get a retro toy or gets more computer
download MAME download all of these roms plug in a joystick and you can get all
of this stuff yourself and while that is true guys that’s gonna take you a lot of
time there’s no guarantee you’ll be able to get all of these roms there’s no
guarantee that these rooms are gonna work it’s basically gonna be a lot of
work guys but for me personally I rather just pay that money guess something that
I know it’s gonna work 100% and just start enjoying all these old games guys
so this definitely gets a double thumbs up from me that’s it guys I hope you

  7. Hey tecdoc have you every looked at unloaded TV service I'm thinking about using them. It's a paid iptv like set TV but I think it's better than set TV. Please check it out and give me your expert opinion on unloaded TV please sir. Thank you Tim Croffoot

  8. Prutty cool , but I have 1000 or More games loaded on a Blackberry pie and it's Wireless/ Bluetooth strait to my LED TV … hmmmm

  9. Cool. What's the name of the first game you played? The character in a knight suit . The machine is very expensive in Asia. I m playing these games via emulators.

  10. That looks gr8 i loved they old games spent a good bit of money on them i loved street fighter & double dragon thanks tduk

  11. 10p a game when I was a kid. Β£1 went a long way back then πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

  12. Yes mate looks awesome, I've got MAME but this is just awesome. Just curious how old are you TechDoctor?

  13. Unfortunately you have a fake. No such thing as a Pandora's Box 5'S'. They only go up to 5 (not 5s or 6) and are made by '3A Game' not 'Huaba Game' as yours says when loading up. It even says Pandora's 'KEY' on the screen. LOL. The originals have 960 games (no more no less). Basically, the knockoffs are just hacked old Pandora's Boxes (3 or 4) running on inferior parts. Your console is either single core or dual core whereas an original Pandora's Box 5 will always be Quad Core. You'll find a lot of games will run awful on this, just like Mortal Kombat did in your review. The only place to get a REAL Pandora's Box 5 is from 3A Game's store on Ali Express. But as long as you're having fun that's the main thing. πŸ˜‰

  14. Bomb Jack and Bubble Bobble… the list goes on those two game we’re amazing. Hours of fun πŸ‘

  15. Double Dragon was my fav Game is it on this device ??
    Wonderboy in Monster Land is it on this device ??
    Also Street fighter,Mortal Kombat always was epic
    Bubble Bobble Rainbow Island , Shinobi were classic too
    half my life was spent playing those games ….you make me feel old @ TDUK m8 as it seems like only yesterday when i was banging in those 10p's for a quick continue the best game overall to try finish was Double Dragon i wasted a full week or more skipping school to finally finish that game πŸ˜€
    This video was EPIC the best you ever done i could watch this video forever and still not get bored and that's a fact ,lol's !!
    well done a double thumbs up from me too : )
    As per usual i smashed that LIKE Button and obviously watched 'till the end .
    Awesome keep up the great work TDUK !! Thank U !!

  16. I bought one of these. Screen is always black. Tv recognizes that the HDMI is plugged it. The device powers up. Lights come on. No picture. No sound.

  17. Do NOT buy the Pandora's Box unless it's cheap and you just want an okay-ish controller for your PC. The standard of emulation on the roms is NOT good. Trust me on this. There are much better options for this kind of money.

  18. Does it contains Tron, Space Ace, Gauntlet and Dragon Slayer? Thanks.
    Also there's a guy linking this one as a clone

  19. Can you add your own roms? Also what's the sound quality like? The sound is something a lot of emulation machines get wrong.
