Hi everyone. I'm currently on the waiting list for the AxunWorks CBOX, and I'm super excited to get it. However, it will probably be many months before it arrives, and I'm thinking about buying a cheaper, alternative CBOX to hold me over in the meantime. My question is; does anyone have experience with these particular Superguns? You can get them from eBay or other small websites it seems. Just curious if they're safe and reliable (good voltages, safe audio/video output, etc. etc.). I'm always weary about buying things like these. Thank you in advance!

Update: Probably just gonna wait for the AxunWorks. Did some more research on this and I don't have much faith in it. Thanks again.

I have a couple of them (from TimeHarvest on aliexpress). They're fine as far as they go. Main issue is no 5v adjustment potentiometer. Also, the 12v power brick they come with is junk. Don't use it. It's just 12v center positive in a standard barrel size, should be able to find a better one if you don't have some sitting around already.

The CBOX is worth the wait. I've probably tested a good 20+ different boards on it without issues. My only gripes with the unit have been that the button 1 turbo switch stopped working and the placement for the 5v adjustment is in a very inconvenient spot for something you need to use so frequently.

mine didn't work whatsoever
had saturn controller inputs, no buttons functioned but the dpad;
poor rolling video quality on ALL outputs (not adjustable)
the av and component in particular had a serious lag as well but maybe mine got dropped in shipping or something

i will add that my unit was probably damaged, as S-video displayed only a black screen

^ Please be clear as to what supergun you are using that doesn’t work. The Axunworks doesn’t have component or S-video, but somebody else may be confused. Your comment was right after mine referring to the CBOX, and both superguns feature Saturn inputs, so the mixup could be easy for somebody just casually browsing.
