I have to say I'm VERY surprised it works. The default (all links in position 1-2) is not 27C010 compatible. Which is why I've got lots of 27C1000 EPROMs

In my STE those jumpers are set for 27C1000 by factory. I guess that in later manufacturing period 27C1000 was easier to find, cheaper.
Actually, you can use larger capacity 32-bit EPROMs and Flash EPROMs - what I did already. For instance with 29F040 or like you can have 4 TOS versions in machine and change them with switch.

I don't do any gaming on my STe, so i'm not sure there is really any benefit to having it switchable for other TOS?
