ZX Spectrum Omni
1 NICESposted by Iain Metcalf
This is a recreated ZX Spectrum based on what is known as a Harlequin board. It looks like the original 48k Spectrum with rubber keyboard that feels like prodding dead flesh (all Ike an old rubber key calculator)
It has a DivideMMC built into the machine which is basically an SD Card reader for digital files so stuff loads nice and quick. This can be disabled if you want to if having problems loading something in from tape. However you can enter cheats with it if you keep it enabled which is handy given loads of these old games can be overly tough.
Finally it has Dio switches on the side so you can select the machine you want it set as (48k, 128k Toastrack, 128k +2 etc) and it has a power switch and reset button uime the original 48k models.
I love this machine and have been playing on it a fair bit since the lockdown started
