[EU] Where to find decent replacement keyboards?

#1 Post by RoamingAndy » Tue Oct 13, 2020 11:44 am

Where can you get decent replacement keyboards? A few years back it was easy to pick up cheap OEM keyboards for X220's and X230's. Recently i've bought 3 overpriced replicas recently and they are all hot garbage i don't want to type anything on. Is there a list anywhere of quality replacements or OEM refurbishers?

In the past, I wasn't aware of the existence of compatible/replica industry for Thinkpad keyboards, but this is not the first time I hear about this specifically about this generation of laptops.

Who makes these replicas and how do you identify one versus a genuine Lenovo keyboard?
Thinkpad 25 (20K7), T490 (20N3), Yoga 14 (20FY), T430s (IPS FHD + Classic Keyboard), X220 4291-4BG
