REQ: Various hardware reviews

It would be great to have the reviews of various Amiga systems and expansions from the time they came out. What did people really think about the 500 when it was new (do we even "stock" any magazines that old? How about the 600? Or the 1200? Or the 3000? How amazing WAS the 4000 at the time it came out? Sadly, nobody seems to have tackled this yet.

I've generally scanned reviews of Amigas if I've seen them so some are online in AMR - but they aren't indexed so you'll have to go hunting.

I know there are reviews of both the 3000 and 3000T in Amiga World, and I think reviews of the A600, 1200 and 4000T in Amiga Format. There are probably others too but I don't know for sure.

Thanks for the heads-up: my results so far are, for anyone who's curious:

A1200 and A4000 were both reviewed in the 12/92 issue of AF (and both reviews are scanned, the A1200 on pages 22-24 and the 4000 on pages 40-42 along with Workbench 3 on page 45) July '92 had the review of the 600, but you didn't scan it.

No luck on the 3000, yet, though.
