Welcome to Kio's Sinclair ZX Computers Archive.

clive1985bu_s.jpg sinclair_rainbow_on_grey.png This site covers the Amstrad and Sinclair ZX computers ZX80, ZX81 and the ZX Spectrum models, Timex TS and TC licensed versions, Eastern and South American clones and the Jupiter ACE, together with hardware extensions and software available for these computers.

There are also sections for Sinclair's calculators, other computers and other inventions and other Amstrad computers like Joyce and CPC which are not meant to be part of the archive, but linked at this location on my local hard disc.

The Sinclair ZX Computers Archive tries to preserve the memories and feelings of the early home computer era by preserving images, technical information and programmes for these machines. Fetch an emulator or a real machine and revive memories!

The different models are sorted into 3 groups of highly compatible machines which can be thought of as years:

The archive on SD card

Send me an email if you want to get the archive data on SD card (or USB stick or DVD on request) — more than 2.5 GB. This has some advantages over hogging my ADSL line. Thank you. ;-)
It's the raw archive data, not as exposed by my web server. You get everything and nothing twice, as opposed to a wget download.

Support the Archive!

Donation with Paypal is currently not possible. Paypal has "restricted" my account and is going to remove it. Reason: probably my blog about my ZX Spectrum emulator zxsp. I tried to get response from Paypal, but they have not yet responded. update: They have now also removed their web form (for me, i presume). update: the paypal website pretends now, that i have a fully functional account. but sending money (and presumably receiving money) actually does not work.

I am looking for images of some variants:

If you own one of these, please make some photos and dump the Rom. See also: For Swap, Sale or Want to Buy/.

I try to ask for permissions for all images on this site, but this is extremely time-consuming. So if you find your work here, i'll be happy to to add a courtesy note to the image or, on demand, remove the image. Please send mail to kio.

No, i did not expect to pass the exam on the first try!
else i would have used 'Kio' for the name.
