This week on 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast I am reviewing the brand new 23 Pin RGB to Component adapter usable on any Amiga. This adapter from retronicdesign.com will let you hook up to many LCD Televisions that support 240P displays and give you some of the nicest colors I have seen on an Amiga outside a 1084 monitor - and that says a lot!

This week on 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast I am reviewing the "Retrotink 2x" video upscaler - It can work on any Amiga with the RGB to Component converter I reviewed last week, and also works amazingly well with the VIC-20, C64 and C128! (And pretty much any retro console with Composite, S-Video or Component) - Take a peek!

This week on 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast I am revisiting my fairly new Amiga 2000. I cover some history and capabilities of this fine machine, and spend some time with my Retargetable graphics Card, the Picasso II.

I also spend some time with the Video Toaster 2000 as we play with a few cameras and some fun transition effects. Come join me!

This week on 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast I am going to be comparing the lovely AGA Graphics of the Amiga and comparing them to the original PC VGA and SVGA graphics. Guess who wins?

Special thanks to John "Boatofcar" Shawler for the motivation to make this video!

In this weeks video I have a very special guest! Eric from AmigaLove helps me dig up the truth about The Amiga in America and bury the rumors that our beloved machine was only popular in Europe. Join us!

Maybe you have heard of this Amiglove guy before?

That video was great. Excellent job and good research. I have always found it odd that people say it wasn't a thing here in North America. Perhaps they were too young to remember or weren't born yet? Or perhaps they look at the sheer amount of Euro demos and assume that meant that there was no market in NA. I am not sure but having lived through the 8-bit and 16-bit eras at the time and not just as a kid, but as someone that paid his own money for the stuff it always bugged me that they thought that. Thanks for doing this video.

One thing that people bring up a lot too is those sales figures from Amiga Format in the UK. 700k total Amigas in North America? That has to be way off. Only 4.5 million total Amigas in the world? That sounds odd too. That means the C128 outsold the Amiga. I find that hard to believe. I remember reading a figure of 1.3 - 1.5 million estimated A500s in North America only. I suppose those could be wrong too. But that does not factor in the A1000, A2000, A3000, A600, A1200 and A4000.

Is it logical to think that all these companies started selling hardware and software in North America for a less than 1% market product? Why would they bother with such a small user base when the PC clone market was growing by leaps then? Why would there be so many magazines and disk pubs every month for such a small market? Doesn't add up.

Edited a couple details

I don't think the 700,000 number is correct, either. I would think at least 150,000 Amiga 1000's were at least sold in the USA, and that was probably their least-selling machine in it's lifetime. I think 1.2 - 1.5 Million in the States is more realistic.
