I've given up on ever getting this, so what is a good alternative? I've heard some good alternatives are finally available.

I bought it on AliExpress. Keep your eye on this page, they always drop the price:

Have you found any incompatibilities with these direct from China units? I have a pair of dreamcasts that would love to have one installed.

The only "problem" is you can't update the firmware on the clones, since they use custom firmware and are incompatible with official GDEMU firmware.
