    I see that's a SATA case, not just an SSD case. But then I'd be a bit worried about thermal issues if there's no ventilation whatsoever for a HDD.

    You don't need to fabricate a special screwdriver... although that is what I used to do a long time ago.

    Just go to Harbor Freight and pick up a security bit set and be done with it.

    Would be cool to put a Raspberry PI in one for SNES emulators.

    It's already been done, with fan cooling!

    Nice! Looks like I need to get a Raspberry, I think I actually have that same Famicom game in my storage.

    Take out the guts of a SSD and put it in something else. Color me unimpressed.

    I thought they were storing ROMS on a hard drive that could be loaded into the SNES. But its just a lame enclosure? At least it fits in a cartridge quite well.

    Those screwdrivers are easy to find on eBay for about $5. I've got one.

    I would rather have Super Mario World.
