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.
