Declaring interest. But sadly will not be able to buy until end of next month due to already spending my retro computer budget for this month (on an actual spectrum!). So if this is still for sale then, then I'll grab it off you. But in the meantime, I'll let the rest of the community go first :)

I assume this would work with a Spectrum +2 (Grey model) as well. I think they work on all of them. And it comes with the CF Reader and card too?

Just out of curiosity. How do people get power to their CF Readers on the div ide? It seems crazy to be hooking up a whole additional PSU. Any tricks?

Mine is powered right off the Speccy's edge connector.

Hello :)

Yes this works with the grey +2, in fact that machine is the one I used with this. However I now have a +2A (black) which I use instead.

No external PSU needed, all power drawn from the Spectrum. Just plug and play.

Happy to reserve until the end of the month if you wish.

Also happy post to our friends in the EU, airmail or registered for a little extra.

Oh really? Dude you're a legend :)
I noticed there is a floppy power connector on the Compact flash Card reader. So assumed that part of it will need power as the 40pin 3.5 inch IDE doesnt give any power?

I have the same Divide and CF adapter. No problems powering it - it just vamps the power through the IDE connector.

This does not work properly on all machines, for example my Risc PC, and so the CF adapter has a power connector. It is not needed with the Speccy :thumbsup:
