Hi everyone. I'm new here and am unsure which Nuon model to buy. Is there a model that you guys would recommend? Do any of them have compatibility issues?

I would personally get the Samsung N501 as it will play all the games and do homebrew as well.

Okay cool. So how much does this model tend to sell for? How much with the remote? Does having the original remote matter much or is it fine as long as I have a controller? Controller-wise, I am waiting for the rev2 Yak Twister controllers (is that how I refer to it?).

I don't see those listings. I assume it's because I'm from Canada?

Update: I just my Samsung DVD-N501 Nuon with the remote! Thank you everyone for your input :D It's a lot bigger than I expected it to be but it looks super cool! Between this and the games I got, all I need now is a controller. Hopefully a solution turns up soon.

Congrats! I find it interesting how so many people kept the sticker in the top right corner. I see more units with the sticker present than sans sticker. Looks like your unit may be missing the controller port cover but not a big deal since you'll ultimately want to have both of those ports occupied by controllers in the future anyway! Glad to see you have the remote. Ballistic is fairly playable with the remote.

Thank you! That's an interesting observation about the sticker. It think it adds to its overall look so it's probably not something I would have removed either had I bought it back when it was sold new. Also, yeah it's missing the controller port cover but I don't mind since most game consoles in general never came with controller port covers so it'll fit right in with the other consoles in my video game setup :)

Which ones are the units again?

Oddly enough, if you have the CD drive go out on the Jaguar CD, those things are about everywhere on ebay. I fixed one just the other day and the parts weren't bad.

Here are my suggestions

Samsung N501
Toshiba
Samsung N2000

In that order. The Toshiba seems to have a longer DVD drive life than the Samsung N501 but the N501 has the better VLM and the homebrew CDR play capability. Not so much valued now since we have signed stuff but there is still NUON content that can only be accessed by the N501.

For Now....

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
