Default How much is my old Amiga worth?

Hi

Just found my old Amiga following house move. Have set it up for a bit of nostalgia. Everything seems to work fine......but ultimately no time to get back into it.......hence thinking about selling......

Just after an idea about possible worth.......

Amiga 1200 inc mouse, power pack and cables (boxed but a bit tatty)
170MB Overdrive PCMCIA HDD (boxed but a bit tatty)
Blizzard 68030 @ 50MHz mkIV with 4MB Fast ram

Loads of software on HDD inc many classic games and programmes
Approx 10-15 original boxed games
AMOS PRO original boxed copy
Approx 200 floppy disks - combination of magazine cover disks and copies

Any thoughts on what I could sell for either individually or collectively? Note I've never bought or sold anything on eBay before......

Thanks

Nice setup for gamining.

Out of interest, what type of hard drive was installed in those Overdrive cases? Were they stock IDE drives that could easily be replaced with newer 4GB models?

Probably $300 (US) if you sold it all together. If you split up the A1200 and the Blizzard board, you could get more. $150-$200 for the A1200 and miscellaneous stuff. $200-$250 for the Blizzard board alone. This would be in the US.

Rdolores - Thanks for reply - seems to be worth a fair bit in US......I wonder how this compares to UK

Darrin - Don't know about the overdrive HDD - packaging says "an intelligent 3.5" IDE hard drive with the future in smart interfaces, the PCMCIA slot". Never opened up the box so not sure what is underneath.......

Dr bongo - I'm in the UK

@kefter
The Overdrive Harddrive is worth at least 20 to collectors. The fact you have the box will help. Let's hope someone will want want it though, as the unit itself is not practical at all these days due to the use of internal CF drives or internal 2.5" laptop hard drives.
The Blizzard is definitely worth 130.
The software and disks boxed or not aren't going to fetch much I'm afraid, although AMOSPro boxed in good condition with all disks and manual is worth at least 10.
It's difficult to put a price tag for the items collectively. It will depend on the condition of the A1200 itself. A yellowed Amiga isn't as desirable as a white one. If the Amiga is perfectly white, then the whole lot could sell for 200.

@Darrin
I used to use an Archos Overdrive myself. Or was it Zappo? I can't remember, but it was the same device regardless of the name and mine had a Seagate 260MB 3.5" IDE HDD inside - Model ST3290A. Yes, standard drive which you could easily upgrade. They were marketed as such that you didn't have to break the warranty seal on the Amiga to fit the drive, and also, for those lacking technical expertise you didn't have to open the computer up either. They worked on the A600 as well as the A1200. Nice units actually. They actually boot from drive CC0: and then a tiny program on the carddisk (where CC0: was 30K in size IIRC) then mounts the hard disk and transfers control over to it, so it's then able to run the hard drive's own Startup-sequence. For instance, if you booted Workbench from floppy, then your hard disk partition(s) won't appear until you open up the CC0 drive disk icon and run the program in there called "AQ" (AmiQuest, and it had an AQ lettered icon).

I'm afraid it's not worth very much, I'll pop around tomorrow and pick it all up.... That will save you the effort of putting it in the bin

Heheheh, sorry... Actually, if you part it up and pop each item on eBay, you should get s tidy sum. Boxed software in good condition is worth a bit. The Blizzard 1234-IV is one of the best accelerators made so should fetch quite a bit too!

Cheers guys.

So the idea of the Overdrive/Zappo was to keep the warranty intact and give you a cheaper 3.5" drive. I keep forgetting that back then there was a huge difference in price between a 2.5" laptop drive and a 3.5" drive.
