The Memotech MTX Series

Memotech Hardware Repairs

Spare Parts

*** Disclaimer ***

I am not a dealer or trader in any form other than as a private ebay buyer & seller - As a user of Memotech computers I have needed to source some very old components, quite often requiring purchasing in larger quantities than I need in order to make them economic. This means that I have a limited number of components that I don't envisage using that I am making available to others who may be interested.

These parts are typically (exceptions noted), "new, old stock" (NOS), that means that they are unused components that were probably manufactured around the same time as the MTX computer, i.e., they can be expected to be around 30 years old. Based on my use of similar components, more than likely from the same batch, I believe them to be working, but can make no guarantee as to whether the parts that you receive will work on your system - there can be no refunds on these items - you are buying them on the same basis that I did.

*** caveat emptor ***

The prices for the chips here should be quite a bit cheaper than on ebay, but if you can find them cheaper, let me know and I will see what I can do for you. Where I have a lot of spares, i.e., the DRAMs, I may eventually put them on ebay myself to get rid of them, but in the meantime, I'd like to give the Memotech folks first "shout".
