Mine was dead and cost about £33 delivered, I think there are some quite overpriced ones on there.
I think mine was a little under £30 incl p&p so maybe not such a bad price after all... though I will reserve judgement until I receive it!

Sounds like a bit of a faff so I will probably do it in several stages rather than rush it and mess it up!

Might not get it until after the bank holiday as I'm not in the office next week...but remembered after I'd paid & put the works address for delivery. D'oh :oops: :roll:

Hope so...at some point I need to clean some of the keyboards from my ST collection...so maybe the NC100 can be training for the STs...or vice versa!

It actually shares a lot in common with my Mega STE KBD.

There's an nc200 on ebay this morning, slightly tempted.
@PhilC I've decided to pass on the NC200 if you're still interested. I think it might get expensive, and there is something I want to bid on later that I'm more interested in.

@rubber_jonnie I managed to collect that NC100 from work today...powers up OK but so far not managed to get any of the keys to respond (but to be honest, that's what the original listing said, so no real surprise there).

I suspect that my first task will be to open it up & see how the insides look - no obvious battery damage for either the CR2032 or the 4x AA, so that's a promising start.

Edit: And to think that my 1000th post is about an Amstrad... :lol: :roll:
