TI Related -- Ebay / Heads Up Notice

Recommended Posts

Is the NanoPEB still being made? I haven't seen them listed for sale on ebay for awhile and would like to get one.
Thanks
I have been his biggest customer for a while but he just informed me he has decided to stop making the nano. I just sold the last 5 in my store..

It always sucks, when a product goes dry. Jaime came along at an ebb of new TI stuff - we where really blessed for the time he spent churning these out for us.

The CF7/nano is definitely one of the more widespread late-era addons for the TI. I counted up the feedback he had for sales about five years ago--and he'd sold well over 300 of them by then. Those numbers are quite a bit higher now, as he was selling at least 50 of them a year.

If anyone has his contact information, I would be happy to contact him and license the design.  He could make some money and not have to make them, Nanos would still exist, win-win.

 

Just a thought.

There are problems with his design
- poor build quality - I have to test each one and send back the bad ones
- dsr incompatibly with original sw
- cf card required is getting scarce

Better to get a sidecar ram card that you already sell and then buy the tipi for hd/network and/or the sd card I'm working on to plug into the 44pin stack if you need floppy

Fair enough.

There’s a guy who has a printer plotter for sale. I had to warn him to look inside and check for leaked NiCD batteries.... seems as though he doesn’t want to mess with it. I’d hate whoever buys a “new in box” plotter to have a leaked unit to deal with. Even my old one had minor spillage after I removed the ones in it 10 years ago.

I bought an olivetti model 10 to keep my model 100 company.

I asked the lady offering it on ebay, if she could put in a couple of batteries and show the screen - I got the same answer, sorry I don't have time and can't be bothered. I went ahead and purchased with the understanding I might have a unit for parts only or might need take serious repair. That was one of the few times, I've gotten lucky and unit actually was in good shape.

Electronics seems to be one of the few fields, where people, on a routine basis, can't be bothered to let you know if something works or not.

My rule is to assume “untested” means broken on eBay. On shopgoodwill “untested” simply means untested.

Sticky wicket. If you claim it functions, you might see a bidder file a Not As Described complaint on you to duck out on honoring their bid, even if it arrived in the condition you stated.
