Comments:
Essentially a ZX Spectrum 128K with different case and keyboard, built-in 3-inch floppy disk drive, +3DOS and CP/M support, 32Kb of ROM and 128Kb of RAM. A small hardware revision (to fix audio output clipping problems and remove support for internal tape drive) later brought the +3B (not a completely separate model).
You could also buy the special set, ZX Spectrum +3 Action Pack.
The package included the book ZX Spectrum +3 Manual.
Known Errors:
Distorted sound due to incorrect resistor placement (fixed later in ZX Spectrum +2B/+3B models).
