SINCLAIR ZX SPECTRUMS, ZX SPECTRUM CLONES & OTHER SINCLAIR HARDWARE
When I got my first Spectrum in 1982 and bought my 128K in 1986, I didn’t know that in other parts of the world, copies were made and sold: my world then was no bigger than the country I live in (the Netherlands) and the birthplace of the Spectrum (the UK).
Through the internet, I got to learn about the various official licensed and not so official copies and clones of the Spectrum. That’s when I decided to start this collection to bring them all together in one place.
Every page shows the top and the bottom case of the computer and the boot screen after turning the computer on.
The next screen is a test card that I made in Sinclair BASIC, inspired by the built-in test card of the ZX Spectrum 128. Then I run Tact Meter 1.0 to show the number of T-states per frame, showing the speed of ROM, lower and upper RAM. Other photos include the motherboard, box and contents (when available) and other noteworthy oddities.
