Amstrad KB7 keyboard review 9 (BTC foam and foil, tactile)

My other keyboard reviews:

I’m Thomas and I do keyboard videos and reviews. Today we look at the Amstrad KB7, which shipped with the Amstrad Mega PC. This thing is surprisingly well-made for an Amstrad product (probably because it wasn’t made by them, but by BTC). Still, it has a surprising amount of virtues, and isn’t all that bad.

The practice sentence was: “Hello my name is Thomas and I’m typing on an Amstrad KB7 right now. This is honestly not that bad a keyboard, although it was rather cheaply made. Hope you enjoyed it!”


Wobbled says:

You can’t use the mx mount ones with cherry mx keycaps, at least not the ones I have. The rubber sleeve prevents them from fitting.

Bryce Snell says:

I think it would be cool if you included the decimals that the keyboard made so that we could compare that volume. I mean a rubber dome could sound louder than a buckling spring if you turn it up more.

Sean M. says:

Amstrad, I remember that name….ugh.

nagasee9 says:

epposh says:

what microphone are you using when you talk?

Andrea Manna says:

Is it possible to use those rubber sleeves on MX switches?

Lachlant1984 says:

I thought I heard somewhere that there was a 486 model of the Mega PC. Quite a few people were still using 386 based PCs back in 1993 I think.

Atari Guy says:

Jesse H. says:

If I start a petition and get a bunch of your subscribers to sign it, would you consider learning to use your thumbs to push the space bar?

We’re here for you Thomas, it’s for your own good! 🙂
