  1. Yes, I found some good prices in 32 and 64. I will probably go for 32 but I sow 64 almost at the same price, at least for the micro with the adapters.
  2. How about size? Any prefer size? I see one of you is using 16GB. That seems to be more than ideal. There are good prices for 32GB. @mimo do you know if the SDrive would work fine with Sandisk?
  3. Hi, I search and I could not find the right topic for my question but if there is any, please let me know. There are so many Atari 8-bit addons that uses SD cards. UNO, Ultimate Cart, FujiNet, etc... Is there a model and brand that will work for any of them or each of them may have some specific needs. Also, if you have a CF/SD device to connect to a PC that you like, please share it with me. It will be great to know. I have some SD devices but no CF one. Thanks,
  4. Thank you. I have learned something new. I didn’t know that DVI had both signals. Does DVI to Display Port also suffers no conversation problems with a cable, right ?
  5. @mytek is right — They have to make money but I actually think that @MacRoriehas great prices — I went overboard with the options Correction ; I have single CF.
  6. I can recommend The Brewing Academy. His user is @MacRorie
  7. I understand. I don’t have the time nor the manual skills to do this, otherwise, I would have save money. The biggest problem is time because I could learn this (but I’m clumsy with hands).
  8. I'm sorry for the incorrect assumption. This is something very nice of you.
  9. @Simius Thank you for doing this new revision. I'm looking forward to this. I have a question. And my knowledge about video adapters/standards (DVI, HDMI) is extremely limited, to say the least. Some monitors have started to drop DVI. I think there is no loss of quality going from DVI to HDMI (the same for display port?)... but I wonder why is the selection for DVI for Sophia 2? I figured it may be that you have already being working on this and it is best to continue this route? Any comments about it, so I can learn more, would be greatly appreciated.
  10. Wife sow post. All good now, had to make some negotiations :)
  11. I paid 0x683 (in hex) us dollars. I think is worth it, as @mytek mentions. I may have gone overboard. At some point, I wanted a COVOX in it and more stuff but @MacRorie always kept me in check, as I was going crazy with the options. I think @MacRorie is super cool. With the amount of emails I sent him, I would have blocked myself. He is a great person. I'm also happy, as I think, since I'm able, this may support some of the people doing add-ons. I believe that some royalties may go to @mytek I do plan getting another XEL later but my eyes are in the 576+ that @mytek is working on and maybe XLD. I do think I will get less options. Something I really wanted was the Rapidus (would have been extra) but @MacRorie mentions in the video why this was not possible, at least at this time. I think I will send him one of my Atari to mod with Rapidus at some point. One thing that would be nice is to have Sophia 2 on it. I don't know if it will be easy to swap, put on a new build, or send my XEL back to @MacRorie In short, I received The custom Blue case with the Atari logo (which I really wanted it... I was thinking one with my initials but I never asked if it was possible since I figured it would delayed my order but maybe next time).

  12. I did not meant not give you the price — It was over 1k but I was not in front of the computer to give you the price and the parts. I apologize if I came out this way. I will get that to you.
  13. I will post the options soon. Total price was high but worth it. Not high because brewing academy is expensive but I asked for way too many things. You can easily get the price from their site. I opted for them building it. This adds a cost as well. I hope to get a 576+ in the future and may be an XLD. But for sure, I will know use them for any mods on my Atari’s. As far as review, I will. The video does provide a good overview of the options and the functionality.
  14. @mytek I’m not sure if you have already discussed this but would this be the prefer video for 576+ or you have another video adapter in mind ?
  15. Well, I didn’t lie. I did buy something that cost 30.. I just didn’t say what cost the rest
  16. You are right. Well, let’s just say is the truth from a specific perspective.
  17. I want to thanks Marlin @MacRorie for sending me a beautiful product, creating this amazing video, and delivering sooner than promised (way sooner). I still need to get me a PS/2 keyboard or find the one I have somewhere. I'm going to be honest. The U1MB has so many moving pieces that it is not easy for me to grasp everything right away but I'm excited. I have not turned on yet because I need a few things but I'm extremely happy. I did tell my wife it cost me around 30 dollars, if she asks LOL -- However, she hasn't seen what it is, just the box, so I don't think she will buy it. She told me to stop buying Atari stuff. But the time she notices.... EDIT: Added corrected link
  18. I can say that print shop had to be on the first position of my list. I didn’t have a printer, so i needed to go to my friends house to print. My 8th grade class president campaign used print shop. Now, I lost but that’s another story. I had been in course politics for too long all the way back to 4th grade (or before).
