Hello! THis is my first post. First i would like to show my apreciation for this site It has very useful information, and really sparked my interest in the Megadrive/Genesis back to life.
As a little kid i used to own a VA6, non-TMSS model 1 Japanese Megadrive that i played to death.
About two weeks ago, i received two boxed Tectoy Megadrive 2 as gifts from a friend. One has much better video and sound than the other. Influenced by the guide on how to tell MB revisions, i opened them up and took some photos, but could not identify them...
Maybe some of you folks can help me?
The odd thing is that the VA6 Jap Megadrive has worse sound/video than the two Tectoy Megadrives.
Here are some pics and descriptions:
Overall Case appearence for the two models (both have internal power supplies):
Crappy and distorted sound, background noise.
Good sound, much better than the first.
Colors are much more vibrant on this system (both on composite video)
