These are certainly rare, but they do show up on eBay from time to
time. They don't seem to sell for much more than the equivalent 2x00.
On the 2x00 the language is on the ROM board and though the chi-p set
in the DVT units was often different you should be able to use a 2x00
ROM board. Be aware that starting the unit with a different rom
board will erase all memory including system patches.
