View Full Version : ZX Spectrum 48K boxed and quite mint

Posting this here as I have no clue whatsoever what this is worth. It's a ZX Spectrum 48K with several cables and mains adapter in its original box with original styrofoam inserts. No manual / printed material at all. The unit and mains adapter look exceptional, almost as if they were bought yesterday. I have never used it (just to verify whether it works), and from the looks of it the original owner hardly did, too.
Picture is attached. I should've used a better pen for writing my forum name, I hope it's still legible.

Lol, surely it's not worth 70 quid!! You still see these from time-to-time at boot fairs. I passed on one for 20 quid, boxed. In fact, I picked up a loose 128 for a fiver.
The box looks a bit tatty, really. MINE looks like new... because I bought it new, and put it in the attic, where it remains nearly 30 years later! ;) Although mine is the Plus model.
And the manuals would affect the value. You can often pick them up cheap enough. I saw some in a charity shop recently!
