Yamaha CX5M has 3 slots...well sorta. Slot 2 is 50pin edge card on the back of the computer, and if you remove the SFG-01 module from the side of the unit you'll expose Slot 3 that's a 60pin slot. Both need adapter to a 50pin slot connector.

Sony HB-500 has 3 slots. Slot 1 and Slot 2 on front of main unit and slot 3 on rear.

I was very excited about 3 slots and even went to my basement to check. In my Sony HB-500 I can see only 2 slots at the front. At the back there is a connector for external floppy drive. Maybe there is different modifications?

Those "floppy connectors" on MSXs are often full module ports with a different connector/pinout.

Curious. I have Sony HB-500P , so european version , and the Rear Slot 3 is a Full MSX Cartridge Slot. I have connected cartridge games on it and work well. You can also see it here:

AFAIK, the HC-90/95 have many more slots inside, but they have a proprietary connector and require an adapter.

You mean that the triple slots of the MPC-3 are fake and in fact they're just one with a selector?

That's correct And HC90/95 has only 2 slot select signals free
1 the msx slot and the other on the 96 pin connector
