Atari 1010 Tape Drive (For Parts)
Includes: Drive only
Due to low demand, cost of power supplies, and cost of SIO cable, we don't bother repairing or testing these. But we do clean them up! Most are cosmetically in Condition 2 or better, but are not rated due to not being tested. These drives do NOT include a warranty!
You will receive one drive, which may or may not be working properly. The power supply and SIO cable are NOT included.
All of our systems are graded based on cosmetic condition, relative to how they came from the factory. Pluses and minuses may be assigned when a system is slightly better or slightly worse than the three grades we offer.
The grades are as follows:
Grade 1: System is as new, with no more than one or two minor blemishes in places not visible when placed in the traditional position a desk. Yellowing must be non-existent or barely observable. Cases have no cracks, no nicks, and no deep scratches. All chips are original or OEM replacements. System will be fully operational.
Grade 2: System is very presentable, with few blemishes in areas visible when placed in the traditional position a desk. There may be some level of yellowing but not to the extreme. Cases have no cracks. Cases may have some minor scuffs or light scratches in visible areas. Cases may have nicks or dents in places not apparent when looking at the unit from the traditional operating position. White keys may have some yellowing. Chips may be original, OEM replacements, or third-party reproductions (ex: ArmSID or SwinSID replacements for SID chips). System will be fully operational, except where third party reproduction chips may alter functionality slightly.
Grade 3: System may have cracks on the case, significant blemishes in visible areas, missing trim pieces that do not affect proper operation, or significant yellowing. White keys are probably fairly yellow. These systems are discounted significantly and intended for people who want a system but don't care that it doesn't look great on a desk, or would like to do a more extreme restoration on their own (ex: painting cases). Chips may be original, OEM replacements, or third-party reproductions (ex: ArmSID or SwinSID replacements for SID chips). System will be fully operational, except where third party reproduction chips may alter functionality slightly.
Ungraded: Non-working parts machines, non-working components, or items that obviously can't be graded (such as cables or disks).
