How much would you pay?

I'm seriously thinking of making adaptors for sale, for the following:
  • ps2 mouse to Amiga
  • ps2 keyboard to Amiga
  • Playstation controller to Amiga/CD32
I'm working out the costs involved, to see if it's worth it...
How much would people be willing to pay for these?

Seeinmg how most most ps/2 adapters for the miggy are around $30-40, and they're nearly impossible to find....

ONE MILLION DOLLARS????

Seriously though, I wouldn't pay more than $10.

I would happily pay £10 for a PSX controller adapter. This is roughly equivalent to AU$25, or US$17.

I would pitch the pricing for the mouse and keyboard adapters at ~£5/AU$12.50/US$8.50.

hmm... on my rough calculations, it will cost me about that much just for parts (unless I buy in bigger quantities).

I'll make some for myself to start with, see how much exactly they cost (make sure I haven't forgotten cost of connectors, boxes etc) and then see if it's worth it.

Hey man, if you could make me a AMIGA JOYSTICK > PC GAME PORT adapter, I would be happy to pay you no matter how much it costs (well, almost ). Let me know if you are able to make this one.

I've seen plans for doing the reverse (PC gameport -> Amiga joystick port) so it should be as easy as reversing that...?

I'd guess $15 would be a great price...

Make sure that KB adapter allows multiple presses of keys at same time to be detected. IIRC there is only one of them that does work properly like that.
