What happened to this keyboard?

Never seen that font, and no FCTN symbols either?   (Well, no symbols could be the lighting, though.)

Well, it depends :) the seller says that it is not tested, anyway it could work... for a bunch of Euros it could be a nice auction also if only for spare parts :P

If it does not go into a bidding war, << THIS AUCTION >> currently has a good price on a Microsoft Multiplan cartridge for your TI.

BTW - the 80 column hack for Multiplan works great with the F18A!  :thumbsup:

Here's the 235 in Black--and for about the same price if you buy two, less if you buy more than that. . .

Watchout, a lot of MSX-stuff. Maybe interesting...don´t know.

As the seller does not ship to US, I can help. But it´s not cheap (the ship, not my help) :) :)

If you want a mechanical drive, those Teac's are a good choice.  Whether you're using a standard TI controller, a double density controller like the CorComp or one with 80 tracks, it'll handle all those formats.

 

HOWEVER...

 

I don't know where you live... but when I checked shipping prices on the black ones it came to an additional  $16.84.   When you factor in the need to buy and pay separate shipping on diskettes too, it may just be cheaper (in the long run) to buy a Lotharek and a single SD card to store EVERYTHING.  

 

AND...

 

A Lotharek makes it a snap to get things from the Internet/PC to your TI.

Yeah, that's usually the rub ... astronomical shipping :-o  When I do find 5.25" HH drives they aren't on the compatibility list (or vice versa with new sticker price/high shipping). My second preference are 3.5" drives for my HxC pair only because I need to keep one 5.25" for accessing old, original TI media.

I did get a HxC, Rev. F a couple months ago. It's not mounted and just sits on top of my PEB because I don't have another HH drive to pair it with and replace the FH SSSD TI drive in my PEB.

Do note that the shipping on those didn't go up much for multiple drives. The shipping difference between one and four was something like 75 cents for me. . .which makes the price per drive pretty low.
