Amiga 2000


The Amiga 2000 keyboard was made for Amiga systems wreleased in 1987. There are other variants of this keyboard including a Cherry produced version. 


This keyboard was OEMed for Commodore:


The Purple LED switch that is used in this keyboard for the "Caps Lock" key is normally found to be clipped on the right side of the slider where the LED resides. This seems to ensure that the light being emitted by the LED would fully illuminate the shine-through section of the keycap. This modification has only been seen on this model of keyboard.


The keycaps are made out of PBT with dye-sublimated legends. The colorway of the keycaps is unique to Amiga 2000 where they are a reversed colorway where the alphas are lighter in color compared to the modifiers. 

The layout is unique to this keyboard where the keyboard has special Help and Delete keys above the arrow cluster but lacks the standard navigation cluster. Additionally, the F keys on the NMB version of the keyboard are 1.5u compared to the Cherry version of this keyboard.

Upper Case

The upper case is made out of a single piece of beige ABS plastic. The plastic is textured due to the molding process that is used to create the upper case.

Lower Case

The lower case is molded from the same ABS plastic as the upper case. A set of slots are located in the lower case that join the two halves together. The feet that are integrated into the lower case are flush with the lower case when retracted. 

Switch Plate

The switch plate is made out of stamped steel. The plate has deeper stamping around the switches so that the entire switch plate could be produced with less material. The plate is only coated with a clear coat.


The PCB is a double-sided PCB with all traces on the backside of the PCB. The controllers found on the PCB vary, some later models have been found with both Toshiba and Mitsubishi controllers.


The cable is approximately 1 meter long for the coiled variant and stretches up to 2 meters easily. It contains a molded 5 pin din connector with 6 pin headers using a molex connector on the PCB.
