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.

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...
ATARI  Ultra Pong Doubles (Model C-402)

DESCRIPTION The plastic case show only one button which acts a Game Select and Reset. There is also a power on/off switch, but that's all for the interaction. The list of the 16 games along with their screenshots are printed on the case front. On the rear side, one can spot an external power su...

BINATONE TV Master MK 10 (model n░ 01 / 4834)
This pong is one of the many Binatone systems. As its name indicates, it offers 10 games : 8 pong games (basket 1, basket 2, gridball, squash 1, squash 2, football, tennis, ice hockey) and 2 shooting games (target 1, target 2).

In order to understand how this system fits into the Binatone pong range, here is simplified list of the systems : TV Master MK IV TV Master 4 plus 2 TV Master MK 6 TV Master MK 8 TV...
UNIVERSUM Color TV-Multi-Spiel 4010
A classic looking German pong with colour video and 10 built-in games, including 2 shooting games (similar to the PC-501 "Supersportic" cartridge for SD-0x0 systems). This system was sold in Europe by the "Quelle International" German mail order company under its own hi-fi and video equipment brand, Universum. All labels and manuals are written in German. As there is no gun, the shooting games (one and two players) are played with the joysticks. Holes are provided in the case for two gun ...
RADOFIN ELECTRONICS LIMITED Tele-Sports
This pong unit is excellent. It only plays four games but the controls, knobs and switches are really a pleasure to use. The game selection is made through a huge knob, the options are selected with nice 70's switchs which make you feel you are controling the USS Enterprise... Big orange buttons are used for on/off, reset and serve. There is also two vertical sliders (ranging from O to 10) to keep the score of both players. The on screen scoring is still there, but the sliders are used to cou...
SONOLOR Telematch
This pong unit is very common in many ways. It uses the same plastic case as many other systems, and is powered by the General Instrument AY-3-8500 chipset which equips most pong units of that time. This chipset offers 4 ball games (Football, Soccer, Handball, Tennis) and 2 shooting games which are not available on this system as there is no option for a light-gun. This was a common solution to seemingly develop a whole range of system with the same hardware ;-) The controllers are very ba...
MAGNAVOX Odyssey 100
If Atari started to sell a whole range of PONG systems in 1975, Magnavox (the originator of home video game systems) also started a new range of systems in 1975, the first of which was a much simpler version of the 1972 Odyssey: the Odyssey 100. Back in 1973, Ralph Baer tried to add new features to his Odyssey (sound, extra components on the cartridges to add more visual effects, etc), and wondered if the new technologies would allow integrating a whole O...
BINATONE TV Master MK 6 (model n░ 01 / 4907)
This pong is one of the many Binatone systems. As its name indicates, it offers 6 games : 4 pong games (squash, squash practice, football, tennis) and 2 shooting games (target, shooting).

PRINZTRONIC Videosport 600
In UK, Prinztronic was the market brand used by Dixons Group for their electronics. This system is original because of its large selector in the middle of the front panel. Small and easy to carry. It offers the classic 6 games of the General Instruments AY-3-8500 chipset, including two shooting games playable with an optional light gun. This system will be followed by the Videosport 800, which offers more games (8) and a colour display....
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

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.
