Hello there.
I was checking my collection of retro machines and games and i come to the cd-i box.
I buy long time ago a lot with a cd-i and some us games. Well, not really games but educational programs
Some days ago a friend ask me if i have a 450 model he was looking for and i think that was the model i have.
But when i check it i found the following:


And i don´t know what it´s exactly this.
My doubts:

-Manna Space is a legit developer/maker of CD-i machines? I never hear of them and it´s very difficult to find any info on internet.
-In the sticker says CDI450, on the label GDI-750J and in the machine CDI-1000. What it´s correct? All? None?
-Why a machine build in Belgium it´s assembled to run on 100V? It´s for the US or Japanese market?
-What it´s a fair price for this machine? 5,10,50,500 euros?

Thanks in advance.

It is actually a goldstar clone of the CD-i 450 for the american market
look here :

Why goldstar gave it two different names, I don't know. Phillips used to have a lot of factories in Belgium possibly it was assemlbed in one of those?
I don't know who Mana space. Probably some company who used these machines for some software

It´s the same as this one: ... 500wt_1288

But Manna Space instead of Goldstar.
It make sense. I got it with a lot of US titles from a retired professor here in Spain that works on US for many years.

So, i assume the correct value for the machine it´s 30-50 euros? Less perhaps?

It all depends on condition of course and location. Here in Belgiul they are common, I don't know for other countries. In any case I would say 25 without DVC and fifty with

OK. Many thanks for your answers.
Here in Spain the cd-i it´s and obscure system and there is little knowledge of it.
Again thanks for solving by doubts
