X230 keyboard recommendation?

#1 Post by dustojnikhummer » Thu Oct 29, 2020 2:40 pm

I'm looking for a new X230 keyboard with a US layout (live in Europe). What is the best place to get one? I did purchase https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3285107 ... 4c4dxYForI this and it arrived today, unfortunately, the trackpoint and trackpoint buttons do not work (not even detected in lspci) and the keyboard is a knockoff. It feels much worse than my current X230 keyboard (where the trackpoint buttons died lol) and it is not black but grey. Also the keycaps are already popping out lol. It has FRU: 04X1353 and model CS12L84

Ebay or Aliexpress preferred, but I would like to have a genuine keyboard this time.

I don't want a X220 keyboard. I already tried it once, that keyboard is dead. Besides, it also was a fake keyboard, it feels much worse than the keyboard my X230 shipped with and they are supposed to be identical switches with different keycaps.
