WANTED : Electron Plus 1 : NO LONGER REQUIRED !

Post by BeebMan2018 »

Hey guys i'm looking at getting an electron plus 1. I think it could be a useful upgrade but hear they can be a bit finicky and loose power so i'm not trilled about paying a whole lot of cash i cant afford but if you want to help and have a spare +1 knocking about that you need to shift i might be able to give it a new home.

PM Sent . . .

You have the wrong information about the Plus 1 - They tend to be VERY reliable :D Unless, of course the cartridge connectors have been abused - but even those can be replaced.

Losing Power? Confusing the +1 and the +3 maybe?

Ahh OK Thanks for the correction. Any idea on what i should expect to pay ? I know value is what its perceived to be but a ballpark average of a Plus 1's value would be useful.

I bought my current Plus 1 through eBay for £20. I was the only bidder luckily.

BTW, If you acquire a Plus 1 from Dave it’s worth considering upgrading it with an AP6. Dave can help you with this. Link to the old AP6 http://www.acornelectron.co.uk/mags/eu/ ... r-ap6.html
