I have the A2000 CPU slot adapter but don't use it.

Unless something has changed that I am not aware of the A2000 CPU slot adapter isn't really necessary. The V500 fits with a DKB Megachip just fine in the 68000 socket. Unless the A2000 CPU slot adapter has changed it actually is less convenient than just plugging the V500 into the 68000 slot since the HDMI cable aimed straight up and I couldn't close the case unless I found an HDMI cable with a shorter connector. The HDMI cable being under the drive/power supply rail may not be ideal for some people either but I prefer it.

The SD slot was easier to access. The biggest thing the V500 seemed a little more buggy before but I attribute that to my very tired and beaten up A2000.

Maybe it's more of a preference thing, some people want it in the proper CPU slot or there have been new developments that the unused pads on the CPU slot adapter have been populated with caps that make it run better than with the bare board.

Or if you are removing/reinstalling a lot it's easier with the CPU slot than with the 68000 socket.

Yeah, my 68k socket has seen a lot of battery damage/repair and while the system seems to be solid, I'd rather leave it be and use the CPU slot since it's there.

NovaCoder - thanks for the link, I'm aware of Kipper2k's website but haven't seen any listing or info about the adapter (apart from the the image linked above) unless I'm not seeing the obvious (wouldn't be the first time)? I had been assuming he's pretty busy distributing V600's in any case, and didn't want random emails (not that I can see an email on the website either, although there's a link to the IRC chat).

I think he'll probably add them to his online store sooner or later.

Good, tried to reach Kipper about A2000 Vampire adapter two times by e-mail without response. Hopefully he will be able to send bunch of A2000 adapters to Czech, because I know about other 5 friends who wants it too.
