He just sold me the printer

Recommended Posts

I have a full ADAM setup (printer, keyboard, console ).  

 

I also have a module 3 and keyboard, but no printer

 

Saw an ad on the local buy and sell advertising a complete ADAM setup for $400 . It has been listed since August.  On a whim I asked if the seller would just sell the printer.   To my surprise he said sure. He said he didn't think anyone would want a clunky old printer anyway  . Got the working printer for $35 USD.   Guy said who ever buys the computer won't want an older printer that uses ribbons anyway  

 

This guy was definitely not Colecovision guy 

 

Anyway, never hurts to ask

I would have told him the computer is useless without the printer. You took advantage of him.

I actually did tell him the printer was the power source and that's why I only need that piece.   He said he had not had anyone call since the ad was put up in August.   He was wiling to part out at this point.    

 

I was tempted but he wanted too much for the other stuff.   

 

That's why it never hurts to ask.

You can use the adam without the printer, providing you supply a replacement power unit.  It doesn't kill the machine to subtract the printer, though the Adam's reputation suggests otherwise.

No hurt feelings. I have seen the ad up for a while. It said 'sell as lot'.   I figured after 3 months it either sold (and he never removed the listing) or he didn't have any takers.     I messaged back and forth a few times before he agreed that no one was interested in that beast of a power supply / printer.    I think he now figures it may be easier to sell parts of it to people who need them. I imagine that the keyboard will be an easy sale for him if he ebays it. The module 3 was in perfect shape. Included also was the colecovision, steering wheel,  both sets of controllers, and several games

I always wanted one, primarily for the tape deck, but I was leery of any media I could not myself format.  Still, those tape decks are COOL.
