I have 14" Trinitron. Can't fault it!

Though I needed something bigger... 28" now great for arcade games!

One of mine is 27". It's awesome but it's in storage now and it needs 2 people to move so I'll stick with my 21 inchers for now.

I'd say, if you want one, now is the time to look for it...it's becoming increasingly hard to find a unit in a good shape without major flaws. Yikes! I just had a gander on ebay uk...the prices have gone absolutely mental! Even 14" ones start at 100 quid...lawd almighty. When I was leaving London few years ago I posted an ad for my 27" Trinitron starting at 30 quid, later to be taken for free - nobody came. I don't even want to know what people ask for PVMs these days.

And that one I've just picked up was 5 pounds...so glad that in my area nobody has a clue about retro gaming crazes

Nearly managed to snag some toilet roll today but then realised the supermarket had cleverly put kitchen roll in the toilet roll isle - far too rough to use! Down to last 5 rolls...

Living dangerously there, we're down to about 7 rolls.

I didn't buy these all today (was this week) but I did get an A1200 Mobo (recapped), WB3.1.4 & Roms, 8mb Ram Board and Gotek. Housed in the case left over from my Tower project.

Hi it's Workbench 3.1.4 with the bundled glow icons. I've also installed BestWB on top which gives a few useful extras, plus Dopus.

I've spent loads on my Amigas, especially my A1200, of late - thank goodness for PayPal credit... Including:

BenQ BL702A monitor - really impressed with it so far;
Blizzard IV 030 accelerator with 16mb RAM & FPU

And I've just ordered a separate OLED screen & rotary selector for my GOTEK, for my A500.

I bought that mouse adaptor. It's great! The seller had choice of blue shrink wrap when I purchased.

Remember this will only work with USB mouse that have PS/2 support and so many of the newer mouses don't work.

Update : Nevermind I can see you already bought cheap mouse that I think supports PS/2 as I was considering it too lol.

Good choices but going for the Non-X and faster RAM (3200 or so) would have been better overall..

Mouse adapter finally arrived (2nd dispatch they say)

and it works much better with my old
HP PS/2 Mouse than the LINDY mouse
esp... if trying to get into the early startup

Spectrum Next Accelerated. You could say I bought it in 2017 but it finally arrived this week. What a beauty! Totally worth the wait - I just need to spend some time digging into it. Photo shows it loading one of my favourite games of all time.

Before the lockdown, I got a bunch of cables and a vintage PS/2 mouse. I also managed to visit Goodwill before closing. Found Atari 2600 style joystick there and a cajun drum. According to this page, I guess I'll need a pedal for this drum.
