    Note - NOT an ag1500s (which is the more recent model).

    Hopefully not too old.

    Delivery to “near to Chester”

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately, that one is 8 years old and is priced a bit too high because of that (in my opinion).

    Thank you for drawing it to my attention, though.

    The one on eBay looks to be the same one I sold on Wigwam not so long back. It was in perfect condition so wouldn't let that cloud your judgement if you're worried about age. If you can get it for £270 including postage that would be a fair sum I would think ;)

    I agree with your price.
    The unit advertised is £340 delivered.

    Trouble is, they were not very expensive when sold, often there was a discount available as well, and they are not particularly reliable.
    I had one go “bang” on me a few weeks ago, for no reason.
    Obviously I might have been unlucky.

    Power inspired also changed the design about three years ago, and again more recently - admittedly to a much more expensive version.
    This might not be related to reliability problems, of course, perhaps manufacturing costs etc..

    Thank you

    Just a word of caution, the older units are not serviceable by Power Inspired, if anything goes wrong, you'll need to write it off. I had an original AG1500 that went pop, sent it back to Power Inspired, who were extremely helpful but ultimately it ended up in me buying a brand new AG1500 (with a very generous discount) from them.
    I appreciate the original design, with the multiple sockets on the rear was more flexible than the current design, but I have plugged a 6 way mains unit into the back (had to replace the plug on the unit) and it gives the same functionality.

    Same story for me - “bang” - not repairable, which is fair enough given that it was about 7 years old and used continuously.
    Hence I could use another ag1500, I value that it can be used vertically, I believe that the ag1500s has to be used horizontally.

    so, ideally 4 years old and hopefully no inflated price.

    The good thing is that I am not in any rush (it is far from being an essential item) - so, if you read this is 3 months time, and have one for sale (donation would be better), please send me a message.

    Once again, thank you for the advice and the responses.

    Yes, all ag1500 models and versions were discontinued a few years ago.

    The trouble with the replacement - the vfi1000qs is
    It is bout twice the price of the ag1500 and
    I do not think that it can be used VERTICALLY.

    Hence I am looking for an ag1500 (not an ag1500s) because
    It is supposed to be much cheaper, and

    Thank you for the help though.

    Strange: the photos on the website certainly show it displayed vertically.

    Yes, it is pricey...
  15. quantumparticle

    I looked sometime ago, only saw it horizontal.
    Tried to research but did not find vertical mentioned, nor the supplied feet that allowed vertical operation.
    However, I will look again - thank you for the help.

    I was wrong, and Theo was correct.

    The vfi1000qs CAN BE USED VERTICALLY

    (very lazy research on my part, although perhaps I stopped looking when I saw that it was nearly £1000, and the model it replaced could often be bought for around £500).
