No, but if there's a special reason it's nice to share Smile

  • Sony HB75P modified to 60hz (MSX1)
  • Philips VG 8235 (MSX2)
  • Panasonic FSA1-WSX upgraded to 512Kb RAM (MSX2+)
  • Panasonic FSA1-ST (MSX turbo R)
  • Zemmix Neo (FPGA)
  • 1ChipMSX (FPGA)

Why? I love the system, I wanted to have at least 1 model of every step in the MSX family (MSX, MSX2, MSX2+, MSXtr, FPGAs).

  • Philips NMS8220 (my first MSX Smile )
  • Sony HB-F9S
  • Philips NMS8250
  • Mitsubishi ML-G1
  • Panasonic FS-A1WSX
  • Sony HB-F1XV

In the past a Sony HB-F700P, another NMS8250 in mint condition (why I sold it? oO ), Sony HB-G900P + superimpose unit, Panasonic FS-A1WSX, Sony HB-F500P, ESE MSX System 3 (aka 1ChipMSX) and a Sony HB-F1.

MSX is like a drug, suddenly you feel the need to sell some hardware or software because they are stored for a long time unused in a closet and sooner or later the first signs of regret comes to you... LOL!

Nostalgia Section
When I was a kid, I had a "Gradiente Expert" and my father had a "Sharp Hotbit". After some time my father bought a PC and I could use both MSXs. The Expert is still with me, the Sharp was given as a gift to someone and was lost in time. This year I bought other Sharp Hotbit so now I have the same "setup" that I had when I was a kid.

  • Gradiente Expert 1.1 + ACVS2+ Kit (my first one)
  • Sharp Hotbit 1.1

2+ Section
I had a plan to have one 2+ of each official manufacturer, so I bought one A1WX, one Sanyo PHC-70FD and one Sony F1XDJ. But, after some time, i sell the Sanyo and the Sony. Only the Panasonic is still with me. If all goes OK next year, I will have one 2+ from Sony and from Sanyo again.

  • Panasonic FS-A1WX

Curiosity Section
These were bought because they have some feature that I want to see, study or to check. There is a lot of machines that I want to add to this section, but by now I will live with only these:

  • National FS5500 (trackball and SuperImposer)
  • Sanyo PHC-77 (the portable setup)
  • Sony HB-T7 (modem)
  • Panasonic FS-A1FM (modem)
  • Casio PV-7 (small)
  • Casio MX-10 (smaller)

Hidden MSX Section
Those are the results of my search for hidden MSXs.

  • Mitsubishi ML-G30 (not a hidden MSX, but the keyboard of this MSX is compatible with the other two machines)
  • Pioneer UC-V102 (Hidden MSX2)
  • Aucnet NIA-2001 (Hidden Turbo-R)

PHC-77 internals are here : http://usbsecretbase.michikusa.jp/wavy77/

Note that this machine will require to support MSX-WRITE (1), it's inside the machine and the cartridge version does not work in emulators ... except RuMSX !

And Sony HB-T600 internals here : http://usbsecretbase.michikusa.jp/hb-t600/index.html

Check the MRC wiki for differences with HB-T7 !

This might be a nice way to (re)introduce myself. I'm an MSX enthousiast from Rotterdam, the Netherlands. I like reading about 8-bit CPUs and video chips, and as I grew up with my VG8020, the MSX has always had a special place. And here's a small confession: even though I really admire the MSX architecture as in my eyes the best 8-bit effort ever made, I wish the video chip would've been more like that of the NES. Or at least have some decent horizontal scrolling. Tongue

So... my systems:

Philips VG-8020
This is my first 'real' computer (I had an Atari 2600). On my 11th or 12th birthday, my parents suggested I'd ask everyone for money as a present and then buy a home computer. That's what I did, and with no knowledge whatsoever (my parents didn't really know anything about computers either), we bought a used VG-8020 with one of those huge NMS data recorders and a small black and white television. After a few weeks of just playing games, I got a book a MSX Basic from the library and I've programming ever since. Fun fact: I've used it until the 486 PCs were new. And yes, I saved every single program I wrote up until then to TAPE. When I close my eyes, I still have visions of notebooks full of tape offsets and friggin' pencils (that data recorder ate so much tape in its life).

Philips VG-8020
Hey, haven't you already told that whole story abo... Yeah, yeah, but this one is near mint, no polymer degradation, complete in its box, styrofoam, manuals, cables, everything! I bought this off of Marktplaats (a Dutch auction website) when I was around 20, I think. It's nice to have the brand new version of my first MSX.

Sony HB-F700
This is the machine that I use for programming. I bought it around the same time as the 'new' VG-8020. It was expensive, but it's fully decked out with a 7MHz switch, MSX2+ BIOS switch, a V9958 instead of the standard V9938 and it came with a 1MB memory mapper cartridge. I love this machine to death and I use it often. The memory mapper comes in handy for Compass—plenty of memory for source code. Smile

Panasonic FS-A1ST
This has been my dream computer ever since I saw pictures of it in MSX Club Magazine. The model, the color, the keyboard, the dashboard/control panel thing, it just looks so bad-ass! I know the GT is the better turboR, but I like the looks of the ST best. It looks like something out of an 80s sci-fi movie. This one is complete as well. I don't use it that much, only for games pretty much.

Four in total. I've had two NMS 8250s and a VG-8235, but I gave those away to friends in the hopes that they'd discover the joy of MSX. They're probably collecting dust or *shudder* have been brought to the Milieustraat (look that up if you don't speak Dutch—a horrible place for an MSX).
