Hi guys,
I’m new here, but not new to the MSX world as I had a good old VG8010 when I was a kid, which unfortunately has been trashed a long time ago.????
I’m searching for an MSX2 machine (NMS 8245 preferred, but I’m open to any other suggestion which will fit my budget).
Requirements: fully functional, in good conditions, shipped from Italy or Europe.
I’m not interested in super rare MSX 2 models / models with functional defects (like disk drive to be replaced, keys not working and so on).
My budget is 150/200€ max.
Hope someone out there will be able to help.
Thanks in advance!

Make it two.

I'm looking for a full functional NMS-8245 too, between 150/200 euros max plus shipping to my country (Brazil). Well, I don't mind about disk-drives, so if there is even a 8245 with a defected disk-drive, I'd be glad to buy it nevertheless.

Best regards!

I have a Philips NMS8245, the diskdrive has been replaced by a previous owner (it has a white PC drive now) but when the drive is active the audio gets noisy and video distorts shortly. So probably not a good job has been done with modifying the flat cable from the original drive (but I don’t know for sure as I don’t repair computers myself). Otherwise the machine is good. I can sell it for €200 excluding shipping in its current condition (if not it will be repaired first). You can contact me through e-mail, address is on my profile page.
