I was not logged in and was logging from from the target Wiki page. I did as you said and now it allows me editing.

Ah, I totally wasn't aware of that code LED. Anyway, I don't think it was a prototype then, other than that it had a unique "AVT" logo on it. For the rest it's then probably exactly like a normal FC-200. Or at least, I see no reason to think otherwise with the current information. The 8240 is a different story I think, it is a different machine with different capabilities.

I'm impressed that you can keep up with all changes on the Wiki! I hope you'll keep that up for many years to come Smile

Ehmmm ... the difference is that the 8240 has never been made available to be bought by everyone, while the AVT FC-200 has become the Goldstar FC-200 to be put in the commercial market. With this approach, it's indeed not a prototype, but a first version!

It's not know whether it was the first version. Perhaps Goldstar already created it and that AVT was the party that got it to first distribute it. First with the intention to put it under their own name, but later they just used the Goldstar name. I do believe that only a few Goldstar FC-200's existed with AVT branding, but for the rest the computer is identical, as far as we know, right?

It becomes a question of terminology. 1st version with AVT logo, 2nd version with Goldstar logo. The first SHOWN version in public, not the first created version! It's obvious that the creation has been made in Korea, so the creation and the exposition lead to different orders!

I talk also about versions for the Talent DPC-200 : first version has an "international' English keyboard, 2nd version a Spanish keyboard. That's the order of the public releases! And in this case, it's the same order as for the creation of the machines!

But, they're exactly the same machines! Just a different logo on it...

The logo makes the difference! Smile (and the rarity for the collectors)

Radio Amateur Magazine 61 of October 1985 contains an advertisement of "AVT Electronics", offering the "AVT-MSX" for 699 NLG. "Our pride from Korea for under 700 NLG. On its way to equal the success of the AVT FC-200" The picture is the Daewoo DPC-200 with on the bottom right the AVT logo in front of the MSX logo. At the bottom it says "specialist in MSX and peripherals".

So, although no AVT logo was on the FC-200, they still called it that way in that advertisement in October 1985 Smile

And RAM 64 (January 1986) contains an advertisement of AVT of a Daewoo PC! So they also started to expand beyond MSX in 1986 (at least).

I noticed that several expansion slot types were mentioned. But is there already an overview of the pinouts or other differences between them?
