The Gamatic 7600 is a classic pong system sold worldwide under many different brands, as the Grandstand T.V. Game Model 2000 for example, or the Univox 41N.

GRANDSTAND T.V. Game Model 3000
The Grandstand T.V. Game 3000 is a classic pong system sold in U.K. It can be also found under different other brands worldwide. It's in fact the same model as the T.V. Game Model 2000 but with a colour display (Model 3000 is in black & white). The system itself seems to have been made in Korea. The electronic board is labeled "F'GAMATIC-7600".

MAGNAVOX Odyssey 2000
The Odyssey 2000, released in 1977, is almost an Odyssey 300 with one more game (practice, for one player). In fact, and as opposed to previous Magnavox Odyssey systems (except the Odyssey 300), the Odyssey 2000 uses the famous AY-3-8500 chipset from General Instruments. This chip offers 4 black & white pong games: Tennis, Hockey, squash (here called Smash) and Practice (squash for 1 player)....
MAGNAVOX Odyssey 500
The Odyssey 500 was released in 1976, and was very advanced for that time considering the technology used. It was in fact the only system of its kind. As a matter of fact, the white paddles representing the players were replaced by simple color graphics: two tennis players with their rackets (TENNIS game), two squash players (SMASH & SOCCER?), or two hockey players holding their sticks (HOCKEY). On the control panel, one can find two switches: one to select the playfield (a wall on the left, ...
MAGNAVOX Odyssey 400
In 1976, Magnavox released the Odyssey 400. It played the same games as the Odyssey 200 and used an additional Texas Instruments chip to display digital on-screen scoring (it was the first Odyssey system to display digital on-screen scoring). On-screen scoring was quite well designed. As a matter of fact, the scores were large and were only shown when the ball was lost, and a large 'W' letter was displayed on the winner's side when the games were over. L...
MAGNAVOX Odyssey 300
After both Atari and Magnavox released their first pong systems (Odyssey 100, Odyssey 200, Pong) in 1975, Magnavox continued with the Odyssey 300 in 1976, which was one of the first system to use a single game chip containing the major circuitry of a PONG system. This system was Magnavox' answer to Coleco Telstar, the first game to use the GI A...

ULTRASOUND TV-9010
This is a German pong system. All the texts are written in German. It's a handheld pong type: one of the paddles includes the systems hardware and is used by the first player. The second paddle is connected to the first one and is used by the second player. It could easily be disconnected and was very small (1/3 of the main parts size). As it was not hardwired, it was easily lost. This pong system has got an interesting feature: an On/Off switch for sound that allowed the players to turn o...
UNIVERSUM TV-Spiel 1004
The Universum TV-Spiel 1004 is a classic pong system powered by the AY-3-8500 chipset which offers 4 different games (Tennis, Hockey, Squash and Handball), hence its name (1004). This system is quite unusual because of its weird triangular shape, and is thus sometimes referred to as the "boomerang pong". The controllers are very simple: two sliders built into the case of the system... The games are selected through a big orange knob placed in the middle of the case. The usual switches ...
MBO Tele-Ball
MBO, a popular German electronics manufacturer, produced a large serie of pong systems named "tele-ball" with numbers ranging from 1 to 9. Though they had some cosmetic differences, all these systems were very close to each other in terms of functionality. The Tele-Ball is the most basic system of the whole range, offering only the 4 classic pong games in black & white. The two big silver dials on the front panel are used to switch the system on/off and to select games. The
ALEX Video Spiel TG-621
A classic german pong system which uses the GI AY-3-8500 chip, thus playing the 4 basic pong games. No shooting games here... Something rare for that time, the two tiny controllers are not hardwired to the system. This means that when one of them died, it wasn't necessary to change the whole system. The shape of the case is weird. It looks like a case conceived for a small computer. Indeed there's enough room for a small keyboard instead of the actual panel control, and the bulk at the back c...

LUXOR  Sportsman 2001
This system is very similar to the Sportron systems but it's got a different internal chip: A National Seminconductor chip which allows the games to be selected by pressing one button. So it's very efficient. Just one button and 2 switches. It's a color system. The case was designed to incorporate a speaker but the chip allows the sound to come out of the TV speaker so there is no internal speaker inside the system. Pads are fixed by scratch pieces....
MENTOR Sport TG 20
This pong is exactly the same system as the Binatone TV Master MK IV, but marketed under a different name. See this entry for more info......
MBO Tele-Ball II
This is a nice looking system from MBO, a famous electronic brand from Munich. It doesn't look at all like the other pongs. An original shape for both the unit (quite triangular in depth) and the remote controllers which are largely curved. The best part is that it has absolutely no switch, only buttons to select the different options. This system was sold in Germany as all the texts on the box are in german. It is a classic pong system which uses the GI AY-3-8500 chipset, thus playing the 4 ...

RIVA T-800c
Hi people are saying this unit freezes, I added a small heatsink to the board from spare zx spectrum parts I had and it no longer freezes.

Hope that helps.

PHILIPS  Odyssey 2001
Here are a few subtle bonus features of this system, thanks to the National Semiconductor chip:
- To change the paddle size, move your paddle off the playfield and press the reset button. Each player can independently choose from 3 paddle sizes.
- When it is your turn to serve, the ball will be served from the location of your paddle.
- To pause a match between balls, move your paddle off the screen when it is your turn to serve. The game will wait until your paddle returns to the playfield.

Hi although I agree with Olivier about how much these are worth, they are still very collectable and a great talking point for parties and some of them look good enough to have on display just for their aesthetic value.

ATARI  SUPER PONG (Model C-140)
I love this system. I got mine from deep in the basement in 2015 and I LOVE this thing! Its a real classic. The power cable is broken so I have to use the batteries but it has a surprisingly good battery life. All in all this is a solid system.

GAMATIC 7600
Hi I have one of these lovely old consoles.

It was in a very sorry state when I got it, but its been cleaned up, resoldered where required and broken parts fixed.

It works really well and its just so refreshing to to play a simple yet addictive game of pong.
