Hi, great forum, never knew the MSX was still going so strong.

I recently had to clear my loft because I'm having new tiles fitted, so I decided to test all my old retro hardware including my MSX stuff.
I currently have the following,

Toshiba HX-10 64k Computer - boxed, manuals, demo cassettes.
Toshiba Micro Floppy Disk Drive HX-F101 3.5" 360kB
Toshiba additional I/O slot HX-E600 2-slot expander.
MSX Cassette deck and cables.
2 Toshiba HX-J400 Joysticks.
Neos MS-10x Mouse.
Cobause MSX HTB-60 Trackball - boxed.
Video titler & Display Program - Anglosoft & Memory Video - boxed.
"Mue" Music Editor cart - HAL Laboratory inc. - boxed.
Spitfire 40 cassette - boxed.
Msx "Calc" cart 1986.
Neos "Cheese" cart.
Msx "Text" cart - Computer Mates 1986.
Konami "Golf" cart 1985 boxed.
Konami "Road Fighter" cart 1985 boxed.
Lots of MSX books.

All work fine, and all are in great condition.
Not looking to really sell anything, yet, but wouldn't mind knowing the current value of this lot.
I've trawled through ebay for the last few days, but didn't really see much of the above.

Any help or advice, most welcome.

Which books do you have? (for sale?)

out of the above, I think these two:
Toshiba Micro Floppy Disk Drive HX-F101 3.5" 360kB
Toshiba additional I/O slot HX-E600 2-slot expander.
will fetch quite a lot on ebay. I think around 40 Pounds each.

Others including the computer are probably hard to sell unless someone is specifically looking for them, and might not even sell for 5 Pounds each I think.

Konami boxed titles should probably sell for more than 5 pounds at ebay...

I don't know what these are worth, but my mouse button is going trough a slow death and my external drive has died already, so I can pay you 60 pounds + posting for these items:

Toshiba Micro Floppy Disk Drive HX-F101 3.5" 360kB
Neos MS-10x Mouse.
Cobause MSX HTB-60 Trackball - boxed.

According to previous posts, this should be quite a reasonable price. I might be interested about some of the books as well... (e-mail in profile)

Cheers for all the replies guys,
I'll dig out all the books and write down what they are, hopefully later today.

If anyone wants photos I'll put some up, although my digital camera broke not long ago (funny enough, a month after the warranty expired), so it will have to be with
a mobile phone, quality isn't too bad for a phone providing I use a lot of natural light.

No Programmers Guide, I'm afraid.
Heres a pic of them.

Some good books there. Generally I think hardware/asm books are relatively easy to sell on. And they are worth 5-10 Pounds but some rare ones fetch more depending on interest at the time on ebay.
As a whole set you listed in the first post, I think you might get 100 Pounds for the whole set.
