Quote from: tjohnson on 22:37, 26 December 17More silly expensive Amstrad stuff, I'm sure a floppy drive and interface is useful for those with a CPC464 but not £275 useful delivered.http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AMSTRAD-DDI-1-INTERFACE-MANUAL-fully-working/263340235236?hash=item3d504d19e4:g:0QAAAOSwridZ7Lz4
Quote from: Poliander on 23:16, 26 December 17Also take a look at his other auctions for a good laugh.
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 03:15, 27 December 17Would you like a CPC472 with most of it's paintwork missing for nearly £400? Bargain!
Quote from: Vyper68 on 10:59, 27 December 17When you talk about it's paintwork missing do you mean the cassette unit? - i am new to CPC's in general having owned a Spectrum in the 80's so i don't know what Pro-users look for when buying off the likes of eBay which may explain why i only paid £25 for mine but had to fight a bit harder for my 6128 which was ironic as the 464 turned out working from the get go but the 6128 took some persuading.

Quote from: Vyper68 on 15:39, 27 December 17I guess i meant someone who has used CPC's since they were released and who knows what to look for in tearms of picking up a decent CPCWhich i do not class myself as i have just started getting to know the machine.
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 17:43, 27 December 17 Well basically in recent years there's been a ridiculous spike increase in old machines, most of them really not worth the asking price. I see people selling tatty old boxes to "add value to your machine", and that's beyond wrong and it's making the retro community fucking miserable lately. Then you've "untested", and I use this term very loosely as it's usually shit found in an attic or a skip and most likely faulty, and know full well it doesn't work but will sell anyway.There's a certain amount I'll pay for an Amstrad or any other machine with a few games bundled in cos I know I'll probably have to fork out extra for additional repair and in some cases shipping. A CPC472 as rare as it is, really isn't worth that much for an extra 8k of ram that isn't actually usable so anyone who would spend more than £100 (and that's pushing it), has Rocks for brains as far as I'm concerned!
Quote from: Vyper68 on 22:39, 27 December 17I was gutted when i thought i had broken the 464 when i knocked my DDI-3 interface and the screen went black but it still worked and i'm more careful.
Quote from: chinnyhill10 on 13:05, 28 December 17Edge connectors are a terrible way to interface to a machine.
Quote from: Gryzor on 13:58, 31 December 17Well, it's a working drive, plus dozens of games. Expensive? Perhaps. Scam? Why?
Quote from: Gryzor on 15:05, 31 December 17One thing is expensive, another is scam.
Quote from: Chinnery on 16:18, 31 December 17Perhaps I am too cynical. Its the C64 copy of Rambo and the Snes Joe & Mac that are included in this "tested" lot.
Quote from: Bryce on 10:31, 02 January 18He is obviously only refering to the drive as "tested". Either way, those cassettes are huge (look how big they are compared to the car parked beside them in the fifth picture!). I certainly don't have a tapedeck they'd fit in: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Amstrad/302578708168Bryce.
Quote from: Vyper68 on 12:01, 02 January 18They look like nice alloys, i wonder if they are 3rd Party or Dealer Parts i cannot tell from this angle.
