Default 83XX keyboards

Please Login to Remove!

Who remembers the loose vs. tight keyboard discussions surrounding the 8700 series? Well my question is this, how does your curve keyboard compare to your old 8700 keyboard? The reason I ask is because I've had a 8310 for about 2 weeks and when I first got it I noticed the keyboard was VERY tight, now it seems looser. Not too loose, just looser than it was before. I noticed today that all the keys move together like the loose 8700 keyboards did. Anyways, for those out there that have used both the 8700 and the 83XX, how does your 83XX keyboard compare to the 8700?

Mine seems slightly looser than the previous 8800 and 8700. Not too loose though. All the KB will shift very slightly, though.

In my experience, the 8703e keyboard was "sturdier" than the 8300 and 8320.
I can't speak about any other models, as I've not used them.

My keyboard seems a tad bit loose in there but it doesn't seem to affect anything.
