In this video I unboxed a Spectravideo SV-328, an 8-bit computer from Spectravideo that was introduced to the world in 1983. I’ve never owned, or even used, one of these machines so this was interesting. I picked this lot up from the local tip shop – yup, someone was literally throwing this out!

In part 1 of this series, I take a look at it, plug it in, and check if it works. I also pop it open to see if anyone else has been inside modding anything.

It’s obviously been a while since I’ve hooked an 80’s machine up to a TV, but you’ll have to watch the video to see why that’s obvious and have a laugh at me.
