Got too much stuff, so I need to sell some of it to keep the wife happy Smile

I will sell or trade 2 of my SVI-738's and keep one.
These are easilly upgraded to MSX2 or 2+ for those who dare...

#1:
This one is in near mint condition, untouched and working fine. I believe this one has only been a shop display unit for one of the Norwegian Spectravideo dealers. No yellowing of the plastic, unlike most others.
Original carrying bag with strap, all the original books (some shadowing after sun exposure from display)
I'll throw in an original floppy disk too. (The original files have been overwritten)

#2:
Nice condition. Not much yellowing, but slight evidence of being used. Previous owner used it only for some database of felines (!). Disk drive head alignment is a bit off, so it often gets disk offline with disks formatted on other MSXs.
Good candidate for an upgrade. Original bag with carrying strap.

I'd like to get a fail price for these here instead of putting them on ebay. Please send me an offer on dan(æ)snatch.no
I might be interested in a PlaySoniq if anyone has one to spare.

Hi LS120.
Looks like I just sold the one with the manuals to some other Norwegian guy. The other one is still available. Give me an offer.

The disk drive should be replaced, but as far as I can see you have spares for this machine anyway?
There are disk roms on the web for using double sided disk drives with the SVI-738 too.
230V adaptor is included, and a bag. No software, but I have these carts for sale if you are interested:
Tell me which you are interested in, and I can give you a price.

I don't really wanna sell all of the cartridges, and it would be quite expensive since there are some rare carts there. It's better if you find out which ones you would like, and I can give you a collected price on them and the 738.

Too bad for #1.

Thanks
