NOTES
This is the second of the Sinclair "pocket" TV's, though you'd still need a quite big pockets, not just because of its size but also to store the cash needed to buy one. Still, it was half the price of Sinclairs first model, which was multi-standard (UK, America and Europe).
SERVICE DATA Nope.
CURRENT STATE Clean, works and has its original carry case, but is missing a few accessories.
WHERE FOUND May 2004 NVCF for £30.
EBAY GUIDE Usually described on Ebay as "rare" or "very rare" by muppets that can't be arsed to notice that there is usually at least one for sale on Ebay at any one time.
Telly in action [18K]
See, it does work, you just need to use someone else's
camera and not your own poxy Minolta junk.

TV reception at w*rk is dreadful, so it is all to
the credit of this set that it managed quite a good picture.

Note chilli plants in background - see, w*rk is good for something !
