Smile Low Price Blizzard PPC On EBay UK...

Someone on eBay UK is selling a Blizzard 040/PPC 160/25MHZ 64MB RAM...

Specs are as low as you can get with a Blizzard PPC board (ie: only an 040 & PPP @ 160 Mhz) and the seller says you'll need to replace the crystal oscillator. However at it's current price of only £82.50 this might be a bargain for someone looking for such a board as they always go for well over £400 when fully working...

Anyone interested you can have a look here... (only two hours to go)...

Blizzard 040/PPC 64MB RAM...

Not the type of thing I'd buy myself unless the price stays really low as it's basically untested, just thought someone may be interested in it...

I wouldn't touch it - sure it could be a bargain but more likely a bodged upgrade attempt.

If it works after just replacing the x-tal I'll eat my own socks and put up a youtube video

Of course the buyer would need to be on these forums to show us all!

The best buyer for this would be someone like stachu if it stays cheap enough, although still quite a risk.

I bought a CSPPC that was listed as faulty, according to the seller maybe just needing a new Capacitor, but it was terminal

If it stay's at under £150, I might be tempted myself and take a chance on it, any more than that and it's no thank you mate...

You got to be quick about it then.

Personally I would not buy it. It seems to good a deal.

I very nearly bid on it myself, but it seems too good to be true.

Shame, as I really want to try some OS4 development.

It just sold for £224.50 (including postage)...

Blizzard 040/PPC £205 + £19.50 P&P...

Decided not to bid as I don't trust a seller who puts pre-conditions on the return policy & makes up their own rules about feedback...

Hope whomever bought this can get it working, zooming in on the board itself it looked a bit iffy to be honest...
