Lightbulb Wanted: A3000 Keyboard

Looking to match an A3000 with a keyboard; failing that, an A4000 or A2000 keyboard will do! Shipping would be to US.

Default Re: Wanted: A3000 Keyboard

I have one with a missing key. Works fine otherwise.

Most Amiga keyboards in general have the cheaper rubber dome keys. Compared to all of them, the Amiga 3000 keyboard is the best looking one in my opinion.

But if you have to settle for an Amiga 2000 keyboard, keep your eyes out for the model that has the mechanical keys. They are built much better and the keypress has a more distinct/solid feel compared to the cheaper rubber dome type. Many people notice it looks slightly different but don't realize it is rarer and built with a higher quality.

I have 2 A3000 keyboards. Both broken. Certain keys don't work. Bad membrane or dirty membrane or whatever. Yes these are the retarded rubber dome over membrane type as I think all A3000 keyboards were.

When u buy an A2000 keyboard I have no idea how you would know if you are getting one of the crappy $300.00 ones or one of the elite $600.00 ones.

The mechanical key Amiga 2000 keyboards were a bit smaller and thinner. The famous A2000 keyboard with the red "Amiga keys" is one of these awesome keyboards. They also made one with regular black "Amiga keys", which is harder to recognize.

Default Found: A2000 rather than an A3000 Keyboard

Thanks folks. I ended up with a perfectly good A2000 keyboard sitting under the hair dryer to give it high lights.

Talking Re: Wanted: A3000 Keyboard

Thank you for looking, but I'm just going with an A2000 for my A3000; that sounds strange. Well I will get to see how 12% peroxide in a cream base works in the A2000 I bought.
