Pre-Owned Sinclair ZX Spectrum +2A/+2B Microcomputer (PAL), No Box.
The Spectrum was among the first compact design home computers in the UK that achieved a mainstream-audience.
The introduction of the ZX Spectrum led to a boom in companies producing software and hardware for the machine, the effects of which are still seen today. Some credit it as the machine which launched the UK IT industry and the presence of UK developers in today’s gaming industry. Licensing deals and clones followed, and earned Clive Sinclair (the companies director at the time of the ZX Spectrums inception) a knighthood for services to British industry.
This is the later ZX Spectrum +2 model, coming shortly after Amstrad’s purchase of the Spectrum range and “Sinclair” brand in 1986. The machine featured an all-new case featuring a spring-loaded keyboard, dual joystick ports, and a built-in cassette recorder dubbed the “Datacorder”, but was in most respects identical to the ZX Spectrum 128. The main menu screen lacked the Spectrum 128’s “Tape Test” option, and the ROM was altered to account for a new 1986 Amstrad copyright message.
- Refurbished Sinclair ZX Spectrum +2A/+2B System (Including original UK AC Power Supply and A/V cables).
Each ZX Spectrum Motherboard is deep cleaned using deionised water and professional grade PCB/Flux cleaning solution to remove any grime or contaminant that could effect it’s lifespan. Once completed it is dried and a full diagnostic test is completed, as well as tested with a range of common software and accessories. Each computer is thoroughly inspected to ensure they work as well as they did when they were first manufactured.
In addition to this, the Case and Keyboard are also stripped and cleaned but due to age they may show signs of use and discolouration.
