Internet News   Internet News : MC1 just had a major influx of new hardware
   posted by Slick on 2-Jul-2006 13:39:55 (2762 reads)
MC1 just bought out the stock of a local dealer and has listed a lot of new hardware. There's also a heap of new software... but that hasn't made it up yet.

Ever wanted to do some digital photography? Well at $69 for a digital camera... can you really go wrong? Especially as it comes with Amiga software.


Ever wanted to do some scanning with your Amiga... but didn't have all the necessary software and hardware? ...well $49 is very cheap for a new scanner.

Has the mouse mat for your optical mouse died? You'll find them on the site!!!



Ever wanted a proper genlock? Well the RocGen is listed at half the price of one of our competitors... and we have one that comes bare... we're willing to negotiate on that one.

Ever wanted to make it impossible for anyone but you to log onto your Amiga??? Well try SecureKey... a hardware device that will only let people with a password onto your computer.

There's even a hard to get A600 68030 accelerator on the site.

Never seen the hardware in question? Don't know what it looks like or how it works? We've put up a lot of detailed pictures to help you make more sense out of it.

Don't forget to ask for your free mouse mat if you place an order.

Check it out!

Uhh, so what currency are these prices in?!

Quote:

Creative Labs Vibra 128 CT 4810 PCI (tested with A1) $59
Hard drive controller Silicon Image Sil680 chipset 2x 40 pin IDE connectors PCI (tested with A1) $99


Those are $15-$20USD cards, both the sound card and sii0680.

I would like to see a comment from someone living in Australia.

I know that in Belgium we had extra expensive prices for Amiga-stuff
while they where very cheap in surrounding country's. Maybe it is a
normal thing in Australia that the prices are a bit up.

I saw the site/company is from Australia, but nowhere confirmed the currency for certain that I saw.

Ok, assuming AUD, then:
Sound card = $44.60USD
Sii0680 = $73.63USD.

Sorry, no chance, they're $15 USD cards. I hope the rest of the pricing is better.

I bought an A1XE-G4 Mobo from MC1... Working perfectly fine.
Yes, the price was quite high but I don't regret it (), he is a reliable seller with good communication.

the rest are similar (horrible) expensive.

"1202 DKB expansion board: 68882 FPU, 2x 32 bit memory sockets & clock (second memory socket clip damaged). Includes memory $99
(image it - it`s only a memory card with a fpu and one socket is damaged!!)
bullet Internal floppy drive $99
(lol! i got one 10 years ago for less than the half)
bullet DCE IDE CD-ROM Adaptor with 2x 2.5" connectors & 2x 3.5" connectors $89
(no comment required..)"

and so on..

if i'm an australian i would import such hardware from anywhere - it`s still cheaper.

The sound card and IDE controller prices haven't been updated since new.

Normally if someone was to point this out they could be adjusted.

OS3.9 comes on new and genuine disks.

Ordering in small quantities is expensive. We pass this on to the customer (including Freight costs).

Furthermore in the links section we list overseas suppliers for OS3.9. Australian customers can order directly if they prefer.

If you have some cheap OS3.9's we'll buy them.

connect.to/amiga is infested with pop-ups.

mc1.boing.net is the direct/correct link and should be updated in the listings.

We only charged RRP on the A1. The BIOS had been updated to the latest version and a couple of hardware bugs were fixed on the board for no extra charge.

Thanks for the positive feedback.

Internal floppy drive $99

>>>
There is no $99 internal drive listed.
>>>

>>>>
DCE IDE CD-ROM Adaptor with 2x 2.5" connectors & 2x 3.5" connectors $89
>>>>

That's roughly the RRP in AUD

"1202 DKB expansion board: 68882 FPU, 2x 32 bit memory sockets & clock (second memory socket clip damaged). Includes memory $99

The 68882 FPU is quite difficult and expensive to find. The damage to the socket is minor and does not affect the functioning of the card.

It's a cheap alternative to a full accelerator card.
