Miles Gordon Technology plc (MGT) was a company that initially produced peripherals for the ZX Spectrum, and later produced the somewhat Spectrum-compatible SAM Coupé computer.

They created the DISCiPLE and +D disk interfaces for the Spectrum. They were also known for their Lifetime Drive range of floppy disk drives, which they later rebranded as the Universal Drive, to emphasise their suitability for a wide range of computers rather as opposed to a level of superior robustness.

They went into receivership in June 1990. Later, SAM Computers Ltd was set up to replace MGT, who themselves went into receivership, after which West Coast Computers was established to sell the remaining stock of SAM Coupés (with minor modifications, sold as the SAM Elite).

The company was registered under company no. 02293110, and incorporated as a private limited company on 5th September, 1988. Prior their incorporation, Miles Gordon Technology had been serving as a subcontractor to Rockfort Products. The company was re-registered as a public limited company on 25th May, 1989.
