The most media we have in stock. We use, where possible, new and unused disk. Unfortunately this is not always possible. For example new Sinclair Microdrives are very difficult to obtain.

Currently we do not offer modules. We refuse to exploit for our products other hardware and software. That is why we want to produce our modules from the circuit board to the new shell. In order to plan the costs, we therefore begin only in concrete projects with the production of modules for a specific platform. From this stage these products are also available for other projects. Requests for this are welcome.
