RESETTING WITHOUT TEARS
FROM Computer World comes a reset switch for the Spectrum which does not involve opening up your computer, and thus does not invalidate the guarantee.
The switch avoids constantly removing the power lead when resetting the Spectrum, although putting the switch on top of the case would have been better, as you must hold the case each time the switch is pushed. Instead there is a light emitting diode (LED) on the top to tell you the power is on.
The main reason for having this type of outside reset switch is to save your power socket and plug from all the wear and tear it would receive in normal use.
Priced at £4.99, the switch is available from Computer World, 208 Kent House Road, Beckenham, Kent BR3 1JN. Tel: 01-778 0479.
