However, since the PCB with this switch is not documented here, one can't be sure that this is a real "Mitsumi KPQ Type" board, so I'm categorising this under "Keyboards with Mitsumi hybrid switches" to err on the safe side.)

The Magnavox Videowriter keyboard came with the Magnavox Videowriter word processor. These keyboards can come with a few different varieties of rubber domes, as well as Alps SKCM Brown, Alps SKCL Compact and at least Mitsumi KPQ Type switches. When the keyboard comes with Brown Alps, Alps SKCL Compact will make up the function row.


Since there isn't distinct models between the different keyboards, the only visual distinction between the keyboards is the branding. It is currently unclear what models can come with each switch type.
