Small batch of AJAX chips in EU

Post by troed » Tue Sep 14, 2021 3:27 pm

Hi all,

Since I have a Mega STE that I've upgraded to 1.44 HD floppy, which suffers from errors when the 02-02 runs at 16MHz for too long (I think), I've ordered a few AJAX chips from Best. If you're looking for one, let me know. Hopefully me having taken the shipping, customs and EU VAT in bulk means they will be slightly cheaper than otherwise (I'll re-sell at cost for anyone here).

I don't know the exact number yet (around €44/piece* plus shipping I think), still to arrive. Will update this post once they do. Feel free to claim one already now though.

*) Yeah I know, that's what $30 ended up becoming ..

They've finally arrived after having taken interesting postal routes. They did so the day before I went on a two week vacation to southern Europe though so I won't be able to test or send any until two weeks from now though. Sorry.

I have one more available besides the already claimed.

regards,
Troed

Hi @troed, do you want me to PM you with my address to work out shipping costs & how best to pay for the AJAX?

Sorry for not getting in touch sooner! :oops:

Yeah send address in PM and we'll sort everything else out from there :) I had hoped I would be able to fit one into my own MSTE as soon as I got them but I'm not getting the time it seems. I'm sure they're all ok though, else I will swap them.
