CPC 464 Plus Monitor
« on: 20:46, 07 December 10 »
I have a CPC 464 plus monochrome monitor (MM12). I've not seen any of these before, is it a fairly scare model?
 
Also, I'd really like a colour monitor (CM14), so if anyone has a spare and wants to swap for my MM12, please get in touch.

Article here.

Yes, it's a very scary model :D

Just kidding. It's scarce enough, given that, IMO, marketing-wise it didn't make much (if any) sense: the Plus was a gaming machine top and foremost, so what use is there offering a mono monitor at that late time? I think I've seen one in person, but maybe it was just a dream.

Could you take a pic or two of it switched on and working?

Cheers - and welcome here! :)

This is seriously funny :D Thanks!

Also, I love the 464 Plus models - such a lovely anachronism...

You could get a SCART lead from eBay for £20 and connect it to a colour (CRT) TV for an easier way of getting a colour display?

Yeah I thought about hooking it up to the TV that way, it would be easier and save space but I just love the shape of those Plus monitors :)

I'm in the UK, it would need to be extremely well packed to survive the journey, but I would be interested, Thanks.
