THE BEST things arrive in small packages and the Spectrum Switch from TEC is one of the smallest pieces of hardware we have had to review. It is an on/off switch which fits into the power socket of the Spectrum. The lead from the power supply plugs into the back, and there is a small rocker switch on the front. The unit is held in place by double sided tape.
It is a good idea to have some form of switch on the power supply as repeatedly pulling the plug will eventually weaken the socket. The Spectrum Switch is pleasantly styled and, provided the Spectrum is still in the original case, a useful addition.
The only problem is the price. While the cost of the component parts is reflected in the price of £4.95, if you are able to use a screwdriver you could add your own inline switch for a fraction of the price. If you would rather take the easy way out the Switch is available from TEC, 24 Victoria Road, Bromsgrove, Worcs.
