I got mine today. Here's my initial review with pics and videos. Lack of MSX logo and second cart slot draws attention.
I guess a lot of you have already contacted the seller. The price itself is 150000 KRW. You can find the approx shipping by choosing "International Parcel" in the Korea Post website then looking for the 10-15 kg weight range. [Edit] Korean friend told me Sunrise ATA-IDE does not work on MSX with Korean language BIOS. And can anyone test an "external FDD" with openMSX under CPC-400 setting? [Edit] The seller can speak English.

Depending on the price I'm interested in a complete/working set. Guessing its present owner is not a private person, I guess the price would not be rediculous. So to who might want to organize it: until things are clear, consider me on the list with an asterisk Wink

I am interested as well, depending on the price. A nice unique machine :-) Who is willing to organize to get a bunch of these to Europe?

I was able to contact the seller and this is what he told me:

- Keyboard is included.
- Computers were not used before but remained stored all these years. They don't have box so appearance is not perfect (scratches, etc). Check here.
- They might have been damaged by battery or capacitor leakage or show other failures like keyboard (in my opinion a refurbishment is recommended once you recevive it).

What he checks is:

- Computer boots.
- Front slot works.

Anyway this is the seller's policy and something you have to accept and assume before making the purchase. About price the CPC-400 cost USD 140 and shipping to Spain (in my case) is USD 75 by air and USD 40 by sea so Europe will be similar. The CPC-400S will be on sale soon. I'm waiting for this model so I'll let you know the price asap.

I have to admit I have no experience importing stuff like this from outside Europe. Anyway I don't know if organizing a purchase together is the best option. At least, here in Spain, customs are quite meticulous so importing several machines at once will be a problem for sure.

Thank you for the information. Besides only Disk Basic is shown (not MSX-BASIC nor copyright...). Korean MSX hardware manufacturers were always different and special what makes me wonder if they got an official license.

@PAC, beware Korean imports, as with Japan, Correos has heavy taxes over them. You know, 21% over total costs including shipment plus about 15€ for handling. Of course, it doesn't happens always, it's just a matter of being lucky; but think about it as a possibility.

Yes, I know that. That's why I prefer, among other things, order mine alone. Thank you! Wink

@jltursan

Developed countries are so nice. Smile

I wish we could pay only 21%, because here it's 60% of taxation over the total costs. But that "total cost" can be an arbitrary value guessed by the customs inspector out of blue. He can also "guess" that it seems to have costed more than thousands of dollars and tax over that supposed value. Not only that, but sometimes he can also even state that the value was intentionally declared lower and issue an additional 100% taxation (yes, that 160% total tax) over the value HE estimated.

Assuming this has not been done already. Someone should take a dump of the CPC400 ROMs and compare it to those of the CPC400s that has already been dumped. OpenMSX supports emulating the CPC400s already (minus the superimpose functions).
