    Default Sinclair ZX Spectrum Next Accelerated (UK only)

    This is my ZX Spectrum Next Accelerated from Kickstarter, which after waiting over 3 years for has ended up being barely touched.

    I have installed the latest 1.3.2 firmware, loaded a few things from the SD card, tested it with a Zipstick joystick (not included), and checked the wi-fi and real time clock works - but otherwise this is brand new and unplayed with.

    Includes:
    • ZX Spectrum Next Accelerated computer; excellent condition, a few very minor marks from the manufacturing process (thankfully no major scratches or blemishes that some people had)
    • Box; in excellent condition, with just a tiny tear to the inside cardboard (just about visible as a white mark at the bottom right of where the computer sits)
    • Manual
    • PSU (and adapters); I have also included a PSU on/off switch, which is pretty much essential as an easy way to turn the Next on and off
    • Sinclair branded SD card
    • VGA cable with attached audio cable
    • This should be obvious, but just in case... the monitor and anything else not specified above is not included!


    I used the VGA cable with my monitor, but you can also use HDMI (cable not included). Supposedly the timing is more accurate with VGA, which is why I went with it. However, please be aware that my configuration which works with my monitor might not work with yours, so you will need to configure it for your particular display. See specnext.com for guides etc.

    Most of these have been selling on the other bay for silly money but I'd just like 450, which includes tracked and insured courier delivery by UPS. Please note this is a UK only sale. Payment by Paypal friends and family or bank transfer only.

    I don't want it, but I really want to know why so many GB guys here on abmibay sell only to other GB residents?

    PM from indigoprime replied to.

    In answer to your question HeMe, in my case it's simply that I don't like the prospect of having to deal with the potential extra complications in the event that a parcel goes missing between the UK and the destination country. Having said that, I only apply this rule to more expensive items; I will and have sold items under 50 to countries all over the world.

    @Sardine - I don't want to post other users personal information, but suffice to say don't worry, I won't be posting outside the UK! Also, you made a very good point about the customs charges, I hadn't even considered that!

    @Mousey - payment sent - cheers!

    @Sardine - I'm a Brit who's in the US at the moment, so no shenanigans. @Mousey is sending to a UK address for me. My back and forth travel is a little disrupted art the moment...

    As for import duties, under HTS code
    8471.41.01 "Comprising in the same housing at least a central processing unit and an input and output unit, whether or not combined" anything from the UK to the US is rated at a a lovey 0%.
