FS - Falcon FX-Xtender 3-in-1

Postby Trixster » Mon Sep 04, 2017 4:28 pm

Hi all,

I have for sale a Falcon FX Xtender. I bought this earlier this year with the intention of fitting it to my falcon but never got around to it.

It was purchased from this thread:
http://www.amibay.com/showthread.php?89058-Atari-FX-(three-in-one)-Falcon-Xtender&highlight=Xtender

It was sold to me as working and only recently removed from a working system but I have not tested it. Other than opening the box and looking at the various bits, it has been untouched by me. The floppy disk works as I copied the install files from it onto my harddrive.

It comes with ram installed - I think 10mb. My understanding is you have to have a 4mb ram expansion to get your falcon to the max 14mb - this upgrade does not work with a larger ram upgrade board installed. Could be wrong about that though!

This upgrade requires soldering!!! The instructions seem comprehensive but I cannot provide support on it's installation as I have not done it.

As such it is sold as seen in the photos, untested. It should work but it might not! This is old kit.

Price drop to $180 (£135 / €150) plus shipping. PayPal gift or buyer also pays fees. I will likely also be putting this up for sale on Amibay.

PM me if you're interested.

It's a nice toy but for $200 is too expensive. Especially with the risk of destroying the Falcon. ;-) I remember the praise back in the day, though. The author, Georg Acher, was supposed to add a paging functionality to enable more than 14 MB RAM. AFAIK, this didn't happen.

$200 8O I sold mine for $50 to a guy who needed it for a project. His "project" turned out to be to sell it on Amibay for $100. And I thought *that* was expensive.

Sorry to say it, but I think you'll struggle to sell it at that price. It's not really a popular device. It failed to provide "fast" RAM, and the old school speeder does not perform as well as the Phantom or Nemesis.

That's not really fair, I had it for a while before I sold it. It made me sad that the shielding wouldn't fit with it installed. I then found a nice 14MB RAM card and replaced it with that.
