I have acquire a C64 which was in need of a lot of love! Replaced 2 memory chip, 1 multiplex and then I had to also replace the PLA. Since a used PLA goes for over $40 on eBay, I tried the PLAnkton which performs exactly like the real thing. I ran both the Dead and Test cartridges and you can't see any difference! Thanks eslapion for providing such a nice replacement at an affordable price.

Pretty cool, so out of the 17 million or so C64s sold, at least 0.01% of them are still being used enough that their owners replaced a part in them!

Gideon is said to have sold in excess of 4000 1541 Ultimate (I, II, II+ comprised) cartridges. So 0.03% of them are still used enough for people to spend in excess of 100 Euros to keep using them.

I got mine off ebay, make sure it says PLAnkton and the seller is eslapion. You may be able to contact him direct and get one also.

You will pay less if you just send me a PM here!

eBay charges fees and I have to include these in the price tag there. No fees on Melon64!
