KC 1000 (keyboard, corded) is a low-cost rubber dome over membrane keyboard from Cherry.


The keyboard features four media keys: calculator, e-mail, home page and sleep. These are placed above the numeric keypad, and the indicator lights—which are blue in colour—are relocated to the top centre.

The keyboard uses discrete rubber domes that appear to be glued to the top membrane. Most of the domes are translucent pale green, but two of the domes are opaque black. Space bar uses a black dome, suggesting that the black domes are a heavier weight. The other black key is under the enter key, which has two domes, one black and one green. The black dome is common to both enter key orientations and the green domes appear to support whichever key is adjacent. If the enter key is vertical (for ISO) then the key to its lower left will use a green dome, and if the enter key is horizontal (for ANSI) then backslash above will use the other green dome. Presumably the enter key only presses down on the black dome, otherwise it would be weighted at over twice that of the other keys.

The UL File Number on the rear label belongs to Cherry.

The flip-out feet are not rubber coated.
