Fairchild Channel F...worth adding?

The console has a lot of history behind it and is a nice piece for a collection, but is that all? Is it only a “Collection Piece” or is there any merit for actual gameplay value?

    I say get it, that's AWESOME!

    @Snowflake knows a bit about it, has done several scores-there's just no reason NOT to get it, lol, IMO, even if only just to "check it out".

    I've found one (the one in the picture) that a gentleman is willing to sell for a CIB price well under what they normally go for but I'm having a little trouble justifying the purchase because 1. The games aren't easy to come by (and can be a little pricey) &
    2. I'm afraid it might become a dust collector that I only show off when anyone comes over that might have even the slightest interest in history/video games.

    I had main with no games for a year. If bought the system first found the games later abs just hoped it worked. Then I got a huge selection of games all at once that I was able to negotiate a good price on cause it’s about two shoe boxes worth


    I do have doubles abs triples I’ll need to trade off

    In my case I always look at situations like this in terms of financial investment. If I have the $ now but am on the fence for whatever reason, I think about what I'll be able to sell it for down the road if I change my mind later. If that amount is the same or higher than what I'm about to pay, then that answers the question. So assuming you wouldn't be buying this one and then not able to pay your power bill, then get it imo. If it starts collecting dust or you can't get the games for it, resell it.
