A working issue one. The logo will need a clean up and repaint…

Yet another beige PCB with a 622 ROM.

A nice little oldish black and white portable! Thanks Woolworths!

Difficult to get a reasonable picture on my phone but the UHF image is rock solid.

Should help with the testing of zeddies. :D

Woolworth? Thought they were long gone.

I had the same model oddly enough before it went Psssst, unusually for such a little B\W portable it had a composite input.
Sadly though these days anything under 32" is a blur to these old eyes! :lol:

Sadly there is no composite on this one, just RF.

It won’t be getting a lot of use - mostly for proving unmodified zeddies work as part of ‘Lardo’s Zeddy Co.’

I am very impressed with the image though!

A boots to a K, just about boxed, zeddy. Looks like someone got bored and started stabbing the poly.

A very shiny green issue three PCB:

It has a Tadmod PSU. I think they came with the early Atari 2600s?

A hardly used (power socket is very stiff and logo is virtually immaculate) issue three in a pretty reasonable box. Boots to a K and all keys work.

A reasonable condition, boots to a K issue three and bits!

Sadly the Memopak seems to be dead. I guess it will probably end up as a ZXPand case…

A mostly socketed issue three:

Doesn’t obviously look like the sockets were addes later:
