The full list of Philips MSX computer
than and now
These are the 1°
and 2° models of Philips MSX1, the VG-8010 and the VG-8020.
The VG-8010 has a plain
and short keyboard, it is very bad and cheap MSX, The VG-8020 has a long
professional keyboard, 64kB RAM and probably the most used msx1 in europe.
After the VG-8000 (that
didn't have a printer's port!), the VG-8010 and the VG-8020, Philips has
started to make the MSX2.
view of the VG-8020
You can see the
remote control in the bottom; I found the immage in a site where it was
speaking about how to use the msx as an IR sender/reciever.
because the msx has
a realy simple design it's realy easyto add more controls.
This is an image of
This is the first philips's
msx2, It has a single 360Kb diskdrive that is realy simple to change in
a 720 drive only changing the Diskrom
The NMS8245 it is my
msx and i think that is the most confortable. It has 128Kb of RAM and 128Kb
of VideoRam and a 720 drive.
on the left you can
see the NMS1431 MSX Printer.
the monitor is a VS0080
RGB Color Monitor, that is the same as the CM8833 monitor, but with the
case of the same color of the msx.
The software that is
running is a version of Ease. A excellent Graphic user interface made by
OperaSoft for the Philips.
This is the NMS 8250.
It is problably the most sold msx2 in europe, but not in Italy.
Its internal structure
can be modified form 128 kb of ram to 4mb very easy.
The only differences
betwen this version and the last are the words on the keyboard.
another version of
the NMS 8250 , look at the red power button.
that is different from
the final version.
The NMS 8280 it is
the BEST Philips, a friend of mine has one of this and it is realy, realy
wonderfull. it has 2 720Kb drivers and a videodigitalizer with a gen-lock!
This is the best if
you want to make your own films at home!
