Atari 810 Disk Drive
Includes: power adapter and copy of Atari Smart DOS 6.1 (used as shipping mailer to protect heads). SIO cable IS included. If you don't need an SIO cable, e-mail us after purchase and we'll credit you back $10.
All disk drives are tested for proper alignment, speed, and general operation. A disk is formatted, a disk is copied, and then every sector checked. They are cleaned inside and out, mechanical parts lubricated, capacitors inspected and replaced if bulging or leaking, and voltage regulators checked on an oscilloscope.
All drives graded Condition 1, 2 or 3 come with our 90 day warranty.
NOTE: The power adapter included will be either an original Atari 9VAC adapter that has been tested under load on an oscilloscope for proper operation, OR a new third-party 9VAC power supply, depending on availability. If you have a preference for which, leave it in the comments when you check out and we'll honor it or let you know if we're out of your choice and you can cancel your order if you wish.
All of our systems and original boxes 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 sitting on a desk. Yellowing must be non-existent or barely observable. Grade 1+ is reserved for new/unusued or systems that show no signs of use or any discoloration. Grade 1+ systems cannot be distinguished from factory new systems.
Grade 2: System is very presentable, with few blemishes and/or a little yellowing. Cases have no cracks. White keys may have yellowing on their sides.
Grade 3: System may have cracks on the case, significant blemishes, 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.
Ungraded: Non-working parts machines, non-working components, or items that obviously can't be graded (such as cables or disks).
