Some more intersting machines:

Sony HB-F9P
Sony HB-55P
Spectravideo SVI-738
Gradiente Expert DD-Plus

To Hydlide: that picture you showed is of the 738, not the 728.

If you nominate Yamaha CX5M I'll vote for it. It was my first MSX and it is really good looking and it is one of the more interesting MSX1 machines I think.

The design of Yamaha MSX computers is about the same for most of it's variations, so nominating one Yamaha is enough :-)

the Spectravideo on the picture is a SVI.738, look at the floppy drive on the side.

And then again, SVI-728 was said to be MSX-compatible, not MSX (like the VG8000 or so from Philips)... IIRC Smile

I dunno about the 738, but I assume it's also MSX-compatible-. But as said, I could be wrong Wink

Does that mean I should disqualify the Spectravideo? Smile

Spectravideo 7xx series are full MSX compatible. (Like every MSX computer)
There should be no distinction between 'MSX' and 'MSX compatible'.

You are probably confused with the Spectravideo 3xx series, which is like a 99% MSX Smile

I don't know what you mean with the VG8000 comment, as AFAIK it conforms to the MSX standard perfectly.

No, SVI-318 and SVI-328 are NOT MSX compatible (although not that far away)

SVI-728 and SVI-738 are MSX computers.

<personal opinion>
I can't stand who really thinks SVI machines are the best? They have horrible sound, bad picture, casing tends to turn yellow, SVI-738 has bad disk ROM, diskdrive fries every disk, you forget in and the keys (especially cursor keys) are not too nice on either models. (Ok, I know... Some people seem to like those keyboards for some unknown reason)

Only nice things that I see are, that SVI-738 has RS-232 (with non standard connector, but nice RS-ROM) and V9938 (but it is still not MSX2) I can recommend this computer only to people, who like to play with hardware.

In that case suggest nominating only one Panasonic and one Sony as well. The Yamaha SX-100 and Yamaha CX5M are two very diffeent computers. Maybe you are thinking of the similarity between CX5M and CX7M.
