The Memotech MTX Series

 

Memotech Sales on ebay UK

2011  2012  2013  2014  2015  2016

This page had gotten to be far too large, I have now reduced the number of items on this page to the last 12 months or so, other items have been archived by year.

 

Despite their limited success in the 1980's, there seems to have been an upsurge in the popularity of Memotech machines with the "retro" computer community in recent years. I have started to keep track of the items coming up on the UK ebay auction site - you may find that this information is a useful guide to the price you can expect to pay if you are looking to pick up a machine from ebay or elsewhere.

I am not sure how long ebay keeps expired items live so I have grabbed a copy of the main advert's photo, along with a brief description and details of the sale. Items with a "sale" price marked in red, were either not sold or the item was ended early.

I will try to keep this page up to date, but will only create new entries after the listing has closed, in the meantime, . . . . . . . .

Check if there is anything from Memotech on ebay UK at the moment

Some simple, and probably obvious buyer's tips . . . .

  • Do you want functional machine or a "collector's" specimen? If you are looking for a model in pristine condition with all of its original accessories in the original packaging, you can expect to pay significantly more than for a working MTX. You are not likely to get a boxed, "as new", machine for much under £200, whilst a functional machine, with power supply, will probably be around £100-£120.

  • Be aware that MTXs are not always "what they say on the tin", for example, an "MTX512" that I bought off ebay has only 32k of RAM, i.e., the case actually houses an MTX500 system board. If the machine is advertised as working, you could ask the seller to do a simple check to determine how much memory is installed.

  • If one is not already shown in the listing, always ask to see a picture of the video/TV output, even just showing the "Ready" prompt. Failure of one or more video RAMs is a common fault, indicated by corrupted characters on the screen. (The fault is relatively easy to repair but requires replacement of one or more of the VRAMs which are not in sockets.)

  • Unless you already have access to a suitable power supply, which was normally provided by the Memotech external transformer or from an FDX system, you will have difficulty sourcing a PSU separately. Be aware of this if you choose to bid on a model with no PSU included.

  • The majority of adverts include words like "Vintage" and "Rare" - Binary Dinosaurs has an interesting and amusing take on "retro" computer adverts on auction sites here.

  • Whilst obviously far less common than a ZX Spectrum and the like, MTX500/512s do come up regularly on ebay. Other models such as the RS128 or MTX512S2, along with Memotech peripherals are much less common.

The chart shows an overview of the sale prices for MTX computers on ebay UK between 2011 and August 2016, the chart is based on working MTX500/512s, sold with a PSU and does not include postage & packing charges. It takes no account of condition or other items included in the sale. The two "outliers" were an MTX500 (£451) and an MTX512 (£536) sold in February 2013, both were boxed and in good condition, but no better than others sold at much lower prices - for some reason, the "market" appears to have had a temporary blip that month.

I find that the prices on ebay bear little relation to the quality of the MTX and have more to do with the luck of the draw. For example, the final auction price for two MTXs, sold around the same time and which might appear to be in the same condition, can be under £100 for one and over £200 for the other. Unless you are in a desperate hurry or you have money to burn, you may be better hanging on for one at a reasonable price, rather then going for one at all costs.

Based on past prices, I still believe that around £100 for a fully working machine with power supply is a fair price for both buyer and seller. Whilst, as you can probably tell from the rest of the website, I am big fan of the MTX computer, I think that some of the prices are just crazy - don't let me stop you though - in fact, if you want to be the first to break the 4-figure ceiling, I could even let you have one of mine

Vintage Memotech MTX 512 computer *** Rare ***

For collectors of vintage computer hardware: a Memotech MTX512 computer from c.1983. Boots to the "Ready" prompt, all keys work, memory check confirms 64KB. (See 2nd photo).
The box includes:  - MTX base unit / keyboard  - Power supply  - Audio and video cables  - 4 audio cassettes  - Manual 
The case is in very good condition for its age - some tiny scratches on the end plates but otherwise very clean. The polystyrene packaging has a chunk missing but protects the contents just fine. Likewise the outer cardboard box is a little scruffy but still does its job of holding the packaging together.

Memotech MTX512

I have had this for a number of years now, sadly most of the time in storage.  I now need to rationalise my vintage computer collection, down to the chosen few!   Here we have my Memotech MTX 512, which comes in the original poly case with PSU and manual.  I have only tested it with the BNC composite video output, as I could not tune into the modulator output on this modern TV and my old CRT TV just stopped working! As it has been stored for so long it has the classic condition of some of the keyboard keys sticking and not responding.  Therefore, the keyboard will need a good cleaning, but as it uses the same key switches as the Acorn Master, which are good quality units, then it should be perfectly serviceable. It has had a basic power up test and been left on for a while.   Television NOT included in auction.

MEMOTECH MTX COMPUTER BUSINESS 2 COMPLETE FROM MTX 512 VERY SPECIAL MODEL
(From ebay.it, using Google Translate)
Accessories included:
* Central unit Memotech
* keyboard

The keyboard is simply a MEMOTECH MTX 512 which was taken off the motherboard and included in the business / 2 houses with a floppy interface (see FDX) and a 80-column card. The other on the left there is 'a board that does not know what it's there' an internal flat connector but do not understand where it needs to be connected ...

Comes in it's original box and polystyrene packaging (although a little tatty). I bought this at a car boot some years ago and thought one day I would see if I can get this old skool computer on a TV and play with it. Regrettably I neither have the time or space in my house anymore to accommodate this beautiful old piece of vintage computing so it will have to go to a new home.

Memotech MTX 512 Vintage Home Computer - Untested

A great piece of programming history immortalized by John Hughes in Weird Science, part of a series of computers by Memotech in 1983.  The unit comes untested and without a power supply, just the unit itself. There is no guarantee that the unit is functioning and unfortunately I cannot test it due to a lack of a power supply, therefore it is sold as untested. It is in a good condition, it is very clean; maybe needs a polish if you really care about making the machine look great.

Rare Memotech Mtx 512 Vintage Home Computer - Untested

A great piece of programming history with this machine that was immortalised by John Hughes in Weird Science.  The system is in the polystyrene sleeve and comes with what appears to be a TV lead and a power adapter, the power lead has no plug attached so I am afraid I am unable to verify if this machine works, therefore it is sold as untested and not warranted to work.  It is in very good clean condition and came with a large collection of similar items from a man who had collected for many years.  A great item with a silly starting price and a short auction. Postage will be via parcelforce or you can collect from me as long as collection is no later than the night of the day after the auction ends.

Memotech MTX 512

Used Memotech MTX512 with power supply. I don't know what to say about this really other than it's old and I've had it for about 13 years. I've only just dug it out of the loft and plugged it in to my 42" LCD TV, and surprise surprise it's powered up and gone to the Ready screen. I Googled some MTX commands and entered a couple of small programs and they run OK. I've added photos of my testing, I've not got through all of the keys on the keyboard but have done most of them - I haven't figured out how to do a backspace/delete yet that allows me to remove characters rather than move the cursor over them! If you require any more info I will do my best to help. I've not opened up the case so can't really tell you the condition of the internal workings but if there's something specific would need to see then let me know.

For sale is a Memotech MTX 500 console. The item was buyed in france. It has been reworked. The case has been disassembled, parts cleaned with spiritus and glass cleaner. the keyboard has been cleaned with a vaccum cleaner, there is one screw that does not lose, so no disassemble and cleaning of the keys separately as usual. sorry.

The psu is not for sale, its my own, i can pack a replacement the works only partly,  you can not work with the thing, it is only good to see the machine boots and that there is a feedback when you punch a key. But this is a definete test only psu for pros, its open; its 5 euro wit an invoice via paypal.

Memotech MTX500 - Computer Only - Really Nice Condition but No Power Supply

In really good condition as can be seen in the picture. Supplied as pictured. No other cables or software supplied. I don't have a power supply so this has to be sold as untested and for spares or repair only. Shame really. It may work, but it may not.

Memotech MTX 512 Boxed VGC

The MTX512 is truly a 'thing of beauty and was released in very small numbers in the very early 1980's - they went bust very shortly after. A good one is hard to find. It took me 10 years to find an MTX in this boxed/ clean and complete condition and external needs sadly force me to now sell it.. which is very upsetting so please look after it.

You are bidding on a Boxed Memotech MTX512 in working condition. With the Box , manual, 3 tapes, cleaner tape, Power supply (warning -often MTX's dont have these and are useless without this custom psu), tape lead. This is the item you will receive. Please inspect the photo's for the details and condition.

Comes with tapes and adaptor to composite out. Ive also used mac and iphone to load games/wav files into it, v easy.

Memotech 500 Vintage Computer MTX500

This machine was bought as a present in 1983. Has obviously been overtaken by rapid technical development so has been stored for some time. Has had a limited test and there appears to be an output -- weak but possibly due to the old TV that was used as a monitor

Memotech MTX512 bundle (games, mags, Pascal ROM board, tape player)- working

 

Memotech MTX512 Serial Number: 15897 After many years of being stuck in its box (always stored in the house), I have decided to sell my Memotech MTX512. Included are the following:

Memotech MTX512 in good condition

Original Memotech power supply

Game tapes for Toado, Star Command, Draughts

A4 posters for games, Aerial lead for connection to a TV

Audio lead for connection to tape player, Sony tape player

3 "Digital & Micro Electronics" magazines with Memotech interface projects

Original user manual, Original technical specification

Pascal ROM expansion board (untested)

Memotech demo tape, Memotech cleaning tape tapes with some of my attempts at software (for your amusement or deletion)

Original packaging I tested it by loading up Toado and as you can see from the screen shots, I'm still rubbish at it. Some of the keyboard keys are a bit stiff, but this is probably just because it has been stuck in a box for over twenty years and I expect they will loosen up with use. As you can see from the alphabet test screenshot, all the keys seem to be working. All the photos are of the actual sale items. I also have books on Z80 assembler and Pascal which I can add in if you think might use them. Please message me if you have any questions and I'll try to get back to you as soon as possible.
