Targeted towards business, this computer was closely built around the MSX standard, although it wasn’t quite compatible.It sported a very impressive 80KB of RAM (64K available to the user and 16KB of video RAM) and could run Colecovision cartridges with an optional card (similar to the Pencil II). It uses a Zilog Z80A processor running at 3.6 MHz. The 328 was the successor to the 318 (which included a built in joystick more suitable for home use and games) and was the predecessor to the MSX compliant 728 which looks almost identical. The SV 328 could be connected to a variety of peripherals including a network card, floppy interface and more.Original price was $595 US.

I have found a SV-328. No idea if it works or not. Was considering recovering the gold from it but they seem so rare I wanted to see if they were more valuable whole?? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks! 256 763-3060

Regarding "this computer was closely built around the MSX standard": this is not correct since the SV-328 was a predecessor to MSX. Rather, the MSX standard was based on the SV-328.
