Excellent kit, beautifully designed
This kit is superbly presented, with all components clearly grouped. The PCB and component layout are Works of ART, absolutely beautiful! Works like a charm and allows enjoying one of the quirkiest, but genius computers of all times -- indeed a revolution for the Home Computer market. Well worth the money!

A micro worth buying! 100%
Well what can I say about the Minstrel 3! What I can say is that this little micro from start to finish is absolutely fun. These guys have though of everything, from the packaging to the build itself. The kit comes with all the IC's laid out in order, which makes putting all this together a breeze. To be honest, the only time I even looked at the instructions was for the value of the resistors(I probably could have used the multimeter!). From the video output(The clarity is amazing!) to the keyboard(IMHO the keyboard is way better than the ZX81's!) is fantastic. A must have is the ZXpand, it's another
piece of kit that makes the Minstrel 3 even more fun to use. I come with its own bespoke ROM, and the commands to use it don't take long to learn. If I could give this product a million stars I would, because it definetely deserves it! ;) Review by Gaz Marshall / (Posted on 07/10/2020)
A micro worth buying! 100%
What can I say about the Minstrel 3! Well for starters, it a very well thought out piece of kit. From the packaging all the way up to building this marvellous micro. All the IC's are laid out in order for soldering which makes this kit a breeze. To be absolutely honest I looked at the instructions once, and that was to look at the values for the resistors. Once all this lovely kit has been put together, it work like an absolute dream. From the picture quality to the micro switch keyboard( In my own opinion, works better than a ZX81 keyboard!) is super fantastic! The ZXpand is a must have with this kit also, it comes with its own bespoke ROM and is also easy to put together. The commands for this are simple to remember and overall makes the Minstrel 3 a fun little micro to play about with. If I could give this product a millions stars I would, because it really does deserve it! ;) Review by Gaz Marshall / (Posted on 07/10/2020)
