I read a couple of times, here and there, warnings that SIDS are rare. For instance, Wilba states to not order a sammichSID unless you have one of the rare SID chips. I can not understand this but I am not as experienced as you guys. All I can say is that in Europe, every single day C64 & C128s pop up at Ebay and other sites. So I guess that like 99% of the chips of used C64 must be broken or something? I recently bought my first C64 from 1990 with a 1989 SID (nice how easy it is to get them out the socket) but I am not able to test the Chip yet.
So again, are many Chips broken or faulty? What about 8580 vs. 6581. The latter is very glitchy while the 8580 is not, right?
