Looking for an sd card device for my zx81

Hi all, I'm new to the scene and I was wondering what solutions are available at the moment in the way of sd card storage?

The ZXPand is an ideal solution - it has 32k of RAM, supports hires and is an SD card reader. I have just checked on sell my retro (https://www.sellmyretro.com/search/natu ... ord=zxpand) but can’t see any up for sale at the mo.
Doubtless sir morris will notice this post and update on availability.

This is the ZXpand+ listing. It’s currently out of stock.

Other SD-card solutions are:
  • ZXblast (USB. Read SD-card with reader)
  • VDrive
Both items are from the german ZX-Team’s members.

I’m also looking for one zxpand+ (or maybe more depending how many ZX81’s I successfully bring back to life from the 5ish I have) fingers crossed there will be another run at some point.
