The fellow who was going to trade for the first three items was
having a problem getting ahold of a friend to get back the item he
was going to trade me, and did not want to hold me up any longer, so
my A500 system is up for trade again. Purchase offers will also be
considered. For assistance in helping you determine what I would
trade each item for, an estimated cash value is listed.

  THE ITEMS I HAVE UP FOR TRADE:

        * A500 with 1 megabyte of chip RAM, Super (ECS) Denise chip,
          and 3.1 ROM and original disks (no manual).
          ESTIMATED VALUE: $90
          [NOTE TO A2000 owners: this ROM will fit your machine.
           Install you old one in the A500 and resell it, or use it
           for spare parts. If your A2000 still has an OCS Denise,
           swap that as well].

        * Roctec RocHard SCSI/IDE hard drive subsystem, with 200meg
          IDE HD and 8 megabytes of RAM installed. Cosmetically
          well matched to the A500 (similar in appearance to the
          GVP units). Comes with its own power supply that switches
          on automatically when your turn on your A500.
          ESTIMATED VALUE: $150 (or $120 without HD)
          [NOTE: The one con I about the Roctec is that I have not
           found any CD-ROM file system that works properly with
           its SCSI interface].

        * ICD AdSpeed accelerator
          ESTIMATED VALUE: $40

        * ICD Flicker Free Video. Fits under the Denise chip of
          any A500 or A2000 and provides de-interlaced, VGA-compatible
          output. Included cable has DB-9 output that matches NEC
          Multisync pinout; would need adapter or new cable to
          attach directly to standard VGA/SVGA monitor.
          ESTIMATED VALUE: $50

        * HAM-E. Large external box that attaches to the DB-23
          video port of any Amiga, and provides a 256 color and
          HAM8 type low resolution modes. According to the manual,
          the output supports attachment of a genlock, but I never
          got around to testing this. RGB output (unlike DCTV).
          Includes its own power supply (does not draw power from
          the Amiga). Includes paint and image processing software.
          Image FX (at least the v1.5 I have, and surely any later
          version) supports this.
          ESTIMATED VALUE: $40

        * Amigen Genlock. Small consumer-level genlock, with
          composite input and output, and DB-9 output for RGB.
          ESTIMATED VALUE: $40
