Since I use a plasma for my retro gaming, I use a scan converter. Up until yesterday, I've used an iScan HD unit with an SLG3000 scanline generator. It was decent, but it added a few frames of delay, so I replaced it.
This Framemeister is awesome. It has a few odd quirks, but everything looks fantastic and my delay worries are over. However, I hated the cheap plastic toy enclosure it came with... so I decided on doing this:

The 19" rack mount chassis was donated from an audio processor for some Yorkville PA that no longer exists.
The 4 BNC connectors are for RGB+Sync and I have to add 2 more for S-Video once they arrive in the mail.
The only complaint I have so far is that when I'm using scanlines with my MVS, it tends to mess up a couple lines; works perfect without the scanlines. Maybe there's a setting buried in this thing somewhere... or maybe I can come up with another solution.

The pictures hardly do it justice, but I'll post some anyhow. SNES is just an SNES-1 (BA6594AF encoder), MVS is an MV-1C, Genesis is a VA6. All consoles are NTSC and using RGB+Sync. TV is an LG 52" Plasma.

That's some framemeister love right there.  Looks sexy on the tv.  How much does one of those set you back?

....You really need a onechip snes.  Use the guide:

Picked it up for $400 including S&H on eBay. Couldn't find it cheaper anywhere else. Not cheap, but totally worth it.

I really do want a 1-Chip..... if I come across one at a decent price, I'll go for it, but for the time being, I'd rather spend the time and money elsewhere. I think my next project is going to be extending the range of my wireless SNES controller and, if it works, make two NES wireless controllers and second SNES one.

I agree, it's better to save and not spend all at once.  There's a bunch of stuff I've wanted to pick up for years but only recently did, always good to spread out spending.  On this forum I encourage people to convert / upgrade / make stuff yourself so you don't have to buy extra copies of things.  It's always fun buying a cheap game, some cheap hardware, and converting the cartridge into a 100% accurate copy of a very rare and expensive game.
