For Sale: TL866A Programmer

Hi All

I have for sale my TL866A Programmer. You can read all about what they do here: http://www.autoelectric.cn/en/tl866_main.html

The latest software for it is available here: http://www.autoelectric.cn/MiniPro/minipro_setup685.rar

It's been lightly used for writing ST ROMs and GALs for various projects, and in the interests of transparency, it was bought as a TL866C/S and I upgraded it to TL866A firmware, and added the ICSP programming header to bring it up to TL866A specification. It has been tested using the Mimipro software package and passes with flying colours.

I'm looking to sell in the UK only, price is £30 inclusive of postage.

I'm only selling as I want the more advanced TL866II Plus device.

PM me if interested.

At the bottom of the above, you can also see that it is now detected as a TL866A rather than a C/S.

FYI I still have this for sale, and having just ordered a TL866II +, I'd really like to move it on!

So dropping the price to £25 inclusive of postage.

I'll just chime in to say that this is an awesome programmer at a great price. Love mine (even non-A modified).

Someone should really pick this up ;)

I might have tried convincing you to send it to Sweden if I hadn’t already got a TL866II+ incoming from China :)

I'd have probably sent it TBH, but I'd have had to add a bit for postage.

I suppose for UK I can say £25 inc postage, outside of UK £25 + postage. I guess expanding my options to other areas won't hurt, and somebody will get a nice little programmer.

Fingers crossed my TL866II+ will be here Monday :)

2 weeks seems to be about normal from China. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you! I found a UK seller with local stock,that way I can avoid the wait!
