Hmm. Here's my statistics:

75% of my C64 boxes work (out of four; two repaired)
100% of my 64C boxes work (out of two; one repaired)
100% of my C128 boxes work (out of one)
100% of my SX-64 boxes work (out of two; one repaired)
50% of my VIC-20 boxes work (out of two)
0% of my C16 boxes work (out of one)

Doesn't look good for VIC-20's or TED machines, does it?
