come with a GX4000 compatible analog joy, and yes it must be great to be able to play Megadrive on a VGA monitor...


Also Mega drive paddles with the Logo amstrad is a must have... and you can play all of those legendary MS-Dos era VGA games...

Didn't end very high at all. 182 Pounds... well... you pay more for a SF2 (see auction before).

At this price, i would have been in England, i would have seriously considered about buying it...

There's a 664 on eBay.

I've never actually seen one of these in real life. Shame it appears to be broken. Is this a common fault, and can it be fixed ?

Yes, the 664 keyboard membrane is known to be flaky, you may be able to clean/repair the membrane, but you can also buy replacement membranes for £25 from rwap.
You should also expect to have to replace the drive belt.

From my experience, the membranes aren't worth repairing. They are so flaky, that as soon as you've fixed one part another part will fail a few days later. It's well worth investing in a new membrane unless you want to spend more time fixing it than using it.

Seems like a lot for a broken unit. Are they that much in demand ?

They are relatively rare. It will probably reach 100 pounds or there abouts.

And it's in good condition too, despite the keyboard membrane which is an easy fix. Most 664s I've seen come up for sale have really badly faded keys.

Well they weren't all blue to start with. My 664 is a complete grey keyboard version and there was a beige/brown version too.

So tempting, my sister is still living in Bournemouth so she could probably go around and collect it and bring it over at Christmas :D :D :D

Well the price is still relatively reasonable, but there's still 6 days to go.

Looks lovely, and judging from the bids the broken membrane doesn't stop others...


(but what the heck has he done with the power cable?!)

Don't know how many use ROMboxes nowadays, but here's a trio of essentials:


Utopia ROM for Amstrad / Schneider CPC 464 664 6128 | eBay


Maxam ROM for Amstrad / Schneider CPC 464 664 6128 | eBay


Parados ROM for Amstrad / Schneider CPC 464 664 6128 | eBay


Judging from the manual's font these are not originals, but still, for someone who needs them, GBP7 a pop is not too bad.
