Just read a bit through the forum here and you will get the gist.
The dingoo could take cards up to 16gb, but you are on the safe side with a 8gb card and I think its space enough for some roms and games.
To play some games,  just plugin you dingoo to your pc and drop some roms on its buildin memory. The gba emulator is quite good, but it cant handle all roms. For example Duke Nukem nearly unplayble, Doom lacks of speed and most other 3d games cant be run very playable. But if you install dingux (a linux kernel for the dingoo) you are able to play real duke nukem and doom ports. So you wont need the gba version with that crappy screenresolution. ;)

If you have anymore question, just shoot em out.

The audio quality with headphones is quite good, but the buildin speakers are not. ;)

And the dingoo can hold a mass of games. Mine got about 700 snes games and 200 gba games. So you can carry all your favourites with ya. :D

The dingoo holds 4000mb. Depending on what games you want to play, it can hold several hundred.

I have over 100 NES games and the whole folder is only 150mb

I have a directory with 1100 GBA games and the whole thing is just over 4000mb.

NEO GEO and CPS2 games are probably the biggest. Some can be 20mb or more.

So you could probably have 700 NES games on the dingoo and still have room for well over 500 GBA games.

To give you an image of how much retro-games you can store on this:
I have every single game ever released for the NES, Colecovision, Atari 2600, Atari 7600, Sega Master System and the Atari Lynx, plus a ton of SNES, GB, GBC and GBA games. All saved on the internal storage.

So yeah, even without a memory card, you can fit a LOT of games on it ;)
