    Nice to see more emulators but never heard of this one. Lets look at it... As Modking30 said, it does look rather generic but we could also call it oem. :D I see no loader device like the x360key so it must use the same loading style as the wasabi360 which is the video tab in the dashboard. I don't see any spot for a sd card so you must have to flash a chip on the board for updates and your key. The usb 'cable' which is that white one looks rather bad, I mean really cheap.

    So I went to there site and found their install guide, lets take a look shall we. Hmm, a doc file, classy oh and a easy miss spelling of the word bend, smells like china. See the same error repeated so they must of used the change all feature. :D

    Guide wants you to tape the circuit board to the top of the dvd drive and cover it with electrical tape. You thread the usb cable out the back by bending some of the plastic around the video or a usb connection, no issue there.

    You see that usb drive in the picture posted above? You plug that into a usb slot on the back then the usb cable from the circuit board plugs into the side of that and then you actually load your usb device into the back of their usb drive.

    You install your key and such by connecting the whole thing to your pc, wow that would be fun.

    Uh, the actual loading of iso files is uh.... not what I had expected. It appears you have to actually use your pc to load the iso file. Here is a quote from their guide:

    The emulator mode is started as soon as software is executed at the pc computer, turn on pc software after boot in drive mode will produce your tray being autoclosed to init emulation mode. The best method to make the emulator working with a backup properly is booting in drive mode and selecting ‘Play with reboot’ option, it will reboot your xbox360 and will play the ISO backup, as soon as the ISO is detected in banner , you can eject/insert how many ones you want

    NOTE: Emulator mode + Software off = ERROR E64/65/69,your xbox360 will think about your DVD is not there or damaged


    I really don't care to have my 360 connected to my pc at all times and I fear for later support if there is an issue so yes, I say stick this one on the back burner and see if they give it a lot of support.

    So far it looks like the X360Key has only one true competitor,Wasabi360.

    My prediction is X360Key will have about 65% of the market. Wasabi will hold down about 25%, while items like x360dock wil fight over the 10% that's left. The ten percen-ters will lower their prices but will offer little to no support.
