Not often. You will have to look in Belgian and Dutch auction sites.
Prices were low, probably because nobody knows this machine.
I wonder if this will change.....

I don't. I was impressed with the EL display and not much else.
That EL display was the first usable flatscreen I ever saw.
The Clipper itself was not ready for production.
It should, at the very least, have had a proper mainboard.
W.r.t. to EL displays : I never noticed milliwatt power .
A somewhat later Sharp unit LJ640U26 ( 640x400)that I measured consumed
close to 15 Watts.
