Remember the Quickshot Raider 5? Well I bought this is from the same place.. for £20.
The Atari 520ST was released in 1985 and comes with 128kB of RAM a graphical interface and a 3 1/2 inch microfloppy disk drive.
This model came with a power cable, a scart lead/monitor output cable, original mouse, as well as original owners manual, original Atari joypad, two Spectravideo joypads (one is damaged) and one SuperPro Zipstick joypad.
This little find also came with a bunch of game boxes, but unfortunately has no game disks. These include, James Pond, Outlaw, Joe Blade 2, The Newzealand Story, Seymour, CJ USA, Magicland Dizzy, and a complaition disk with 5 games.
I have plugged it in and into my TV, and it is all in working order, other than the graphic user interface is very dark & hardly shows up. I’m not sure if this is because it’s an old system on a modern TV or the cable is damaged or the graphics in the system itself is malfunctioning.
I’ve given it a good clean and repaired some broken parts (purely cosmetic) and put it away for safe keeping, I hope to actually get some games in the near future and play this bad boy but until then it shall remain in its box in a safe place.
