I have to thank you, you jogged my memory!!! :D

My Aunt has one of these... I hope she still has it at least... I should find out if she needs it re-homed

Plus my 500 died recently so I need a replacement

...So, thanks mate!

I saw one of these in, I think, Curry's years ago. It was quite interesting and was playing Defender of the Crown if memory serves. The constant CD access was a bit confusing to me as it was the first time I'd ever seen, let alone used, a CD drive.

I owned one back in the day. It did look cool, but the CD caddy was a bit censored as they used to scratch the discs - and scratch them bad.. I remember one of the selling points was that you could 'remix' CDs - fun for five minutes. I did see one a few months back at a car boot. I think the guy wanted £50 with a load of bits.

Officially a crap gamer - but one that works for SEGA
