A list of MSX models and accessories created by Spectravideo.

Prior to the SVI 7x8 machines, Spectravideo made the SVI 3x8 models, which although close to the MSX standard, are not MSX compatible.

The Quickshot game controllers also originated at Spectravideo. Early versions where branded as Spectravideo with SV- or SVI- model numbers. Later models, when Spectravideo moved it's operations from the US to Hong Kong, to it's major shareholder Bondwell, are often branded as Bondwell Quickshot and have model numbers starting with QS-. For these later models, see the Quickshot page.

Before Spectravideo name was selected the company was known as Spectravision for a while.

Spectravideo also released a PC and MSX hybrid, the X'Press 16, which with the addition of the MSX Game Adapter could use MSX1 cartridge based software.
