As a real VIC20 and C=64 owner / enthusiast, I have to say that this is as close to the real thing as you can get, while having all the convenience of a modern implementation (including low-power 5v/1A microUSB power and plenty of USB ports for joysticks and thumbdrives). The emulator codebase is very well implemented, with nearly native levels of lag (running games, it really does play like the real thing). The included selection of games on the carousel is pretty solid for the C=64 side (especially the Epyx titles) and okay for the VIC20 selection. However, it's super-easy to just bring your own images via thumbdrive, and that's really what matters.
Looks wise, they nailed the VIC20 color and case dimensions, and the super-retro Commodore PET style keyboard lettering font is fantastic looking. Reviews have commented about "The C64" version being too tall, but they clearly molded/cast their case tooling from the early C=64 production units, which did have identical dimensions to the VIC20. It was therefore dead-accurate for early C=64's and the VIC20. Sitting next to my real VIC20, without noticing the slightly different keyboard pitch and lack of rear-port slots/IO, you'd think it was an actual Commodore bread-bin. The keyboard feels suitably 8bit 80's, but its stroke, travel, pitch and feel is not the same (nor would I expect it to be). However, it has all the appropriate symbols and functionality, and that's what counts - you can play keyboard heavy C=64 games on this machine, or mess around in BASIC, and it works far better than any software based emulator.
One final note: my example was shipped from the UK and only included a UK 220V to 5v DC USB power supply. Not a big deal, but something to be aware of - you'll need a 5v 1a US power version (Amazon's own example works perfectly).
