TRADE: US keyboard for UK keyboard, Backlit/Chicony for T430/T530/W530/X230

#1 Post by RealBlackStuff » Sat Apr 15, 2017 9:01 am

Want to TRADE/SWAP:

A backlit (B/L) keyboard with US layout, FRU 04X1240, made by Chicony (CHY), that fits on T430/T530/W530/X230 Series and probably others.
This KB is in excellent condition and has evenly lit backlight (not with that bright F6 like so many others).
It almost looks like new!

I would like to swap it for one with UK layout, any one of the following three:
FRU 04W3092 or 04X1269 (preferred) or 04Y0557, all backlit, all made by Chicony (CHY).
NO other brands/models considered.
Must also be in great shape and must also have evenly lit backlight!

PM me if interested.
Shipping to ZIP 18436.
Lovely day for a Guinness! (The Real Black Stuff)

How can you tell if it is Chicony or not?
Welcome to the jungle, we have FrankenPads
If you want it you're going to bleed, but that is the price to pay
And you're a very rare mobo, very hard to get
You can see the blinky lights, but you won't get them for free.

Remove the keyboard, then look at its label(s) on the bottom with P/N and/or FRU.
More research will reveal which keyboard is made by whom...
