Anyone have this weird NES/SNES hybrid?

I was checking some NES and SNES console prices on Ebay recently, and everytime I search I run into one of these things:

Anyone have one? Looks pretty sweet if it actually does what it promises to do. Even though I have the Virtual Console, I'd be tempted to get one of these to play the carts that never get released...

I've seen those.. I'm not sure about the quality of the SNES but the way these clone machines play NES games is HORRIBLE. Colors and sound are off, the video quality is just poor and some games don't work at all (and many work while acting a bit odd). Do a search for "NES on a chip" for more info.. if you were picking one up for a handful of games, it might be worth it.. otherwise you're much better off picking up the original hardware (at least in the case of the NES).

I have seen that sold at some shady video game store. It was working perfectly with Super Nintendo games while I was there. Ebay has a ton of them so that seems to be the preferred knock off system.
