Hiya, I am really sorry if I have put this in the wrong place but I wasnt sure... Anyway for sale here I have my ZX Matrix USB expansion - being sold becasue my spectrum has died a death :( anyways it is only a year old and expands the spectrums ram from 128Kb to 1Mb allows use of usb harddrives, usb pendrive, Usb Mice and Keyboards, it also has a Reset switch and a NMI function. I will supply all the software on a usb stick with it. Any money I make of this will go towards adding eihter a deneb to my A2000 project or a Subway to my A1200 (as much as I still think its way too expensive :s) anyway I am selling this for £30.

A bit of a story behind my one, I had a ZX Spectrum back when I lived in the UK, with LOTS of addons. The 48K didnt work, but the addons did, Interface 1, Power switch on it etc. Then My parents and i moved to Australia, and we didnt have room and my parents decided that ZX Spectrum had to stay locked in the attic. When they went back to sell the house, The attic was broken in to, and everything was gone (or so they said). Subsequently I bought myself another 48K I saw at a swapmeet one day, as a memory thing if nothing else.

My wife calls all my Amiga's, and the Zx Spectrum, the "Museum". Likewise she says I have too much :).

It is amazing the levels that people go to incorporate newer technology in to older devices. I knew they had IDE drives incorporated in to ZX Spectrum, but USB ???????? Wow.

The only drawback of the Spectrum, was that all the chips were Surface mounted, Well through holed, not socketed, so any chips that "Popped" either had to be Desoldered, or the unit Junked..., all for the saving of a few pence here and there.

Even if I too am not allowed to buy these by the "Finance Minister", I still get a kick from seeing what other goodies exist.

No, you aren't the only one. I was considering doing exactly that! I'm going to have to start out on a ZX Spectrum quest next. IDE hard disks, 1MB RAM and USB!! Insane!

Not insane at all, mates.

A have a friend who have a pimped up MSX! 4Mb RAM, CD and CF in a dual IDE controller and Ethernet(!).

IIRC, no USB in MSX lands.

It has amazed me, too. I wish I still had a Spectrum. Maybe in a couple of months, I'll put a wanted ad for a +3 on here, when I have some money again!

Welcome to Amibay! Partly invented to be a safe haven for retro folks to trade, partly created to be nice and friendly and troll-free. :)

That's incredibly poor show. Did you raise it with the Amibay staff at the time (I notice this thread is over a year old) -- Lips2k8 has seemingly been banned since, but I imagine that's little consolation when you're out-of-pocket. :-(

@ All

Despite our best efforts, we were unable to trace this guy or make contact with him to reimburse reaminator. Sadly, this was our first failure on AmiBay in that we were unable to abitrate this deal successfully.

:(
