Two Toppies to give away

Post by DaveHill »

Hi,

I have two Toppies to give away:
  • 5800 silver with remote. Currently has the SATA disk in it (see sig). Works but corrupts the disk every now and then :cry:

    5800 T black (with the piercing blue LED!) with remote. Currently has the IDE disk in it (see sig). Works but does not respond to the remote control (something wrong in the front panel?).
Useful for spares?

No, I'm not collecting any more Toppies. I've got about 10, each having one faulty tuner. One day I might try to make some good ones out of the pile and recycle the rest.
Toppy PSU repair service or capacitor kits for DIY available - PM me for details.

OK thanks, I'll remove the drives and recycle the rest!
