FA: Indivision / Toastscan External Scandoubler & Flicker Fixer

Here.

Arguably the best external scandoubler & flickerfixer for the Amiga. Works great with A1000, A500(+), A600, CDTV, A2000, B2000, A4000(T).

Also known as the EZ-VGA, MV1200 and AmiScan

I'm not the vendor, I am just advertising for an acquaintance.

Ahem

I know Alexh is a cool guy, but if you don't apply the rules for everyone, there's meaning in having rules at all ... (also I can't understand why alexh is doing this for him cause he's already posted the link in the proper place)

I honestly didn't know about said rule. I will follow it in future.

I just looked in the Marketplace forum, didn't see a posting from Mr.Luff and thought I'd try and help him out as he's trying to break the previous record for an external scandoubler set earlier week of $910 (£453, €576)

I actually said I thought there was no profit in making a NEW scandoubler. I still think this is true. £500 hardly covers the cost of a weeks R&D let alone prototypes, production costs, tooling costs etc.) But you never know

that is an idiotic price, both this and the 910$ one.

I Know, But I just got hold of / repaired an A2000 ECS with a Flicker Fixer, and the Screen display is just gorgeous..

If I paid that much for a scan doubler, I think I would get divorced..

Well, the prices these fetch seem to hint that there's at least some market for them.. :-)

Oh well, I'm happy with my current solutions, even though they are not tailored for Amiga.

Well the one that i am using right now looks identical to this one, but i only paid about $170 for it about 2 years back, and the screen display is rock steady and as clear as a bell in hires interlace

WoW! I can not beleave the prices on external scandoublers these days.

Last year bought my external scandouber MV1200 from somebody
off Amibench for $85.00 and price includes shipping.

Infact, it was about this time last year when I got my scandoubler.
Works great too!

Just wish Amibench was still around.

Have you seen Amibay? A more than suitable replacement for Amibench I think you'll find
