HP12c 30th AE keyboard



#2

Hi

Does anyone know if the keyboard of the12c 30th AE is of the same type of the 15 LE, with that new hard feedback (which I love), or if it is the very same keyboard of the regular 12c+ (of which I just bought a new calculator and am now stuck with some receding keys and a semi-working Enter key)? :-(

Thanks.
Paulo

All three have the same keyboard. They are all physically the same machine the only difference being the firmware and key labeling. If you got a bad 12C+ send it back to HP. I once saw one in a store that was quite obviously bad but my own 12C+'s have been flawless with exactly the same key feel as my 15C LE's.

Cheers,

Thanks, Marwan.

Just bad luck, then. Murphy is alive!

The HP12c 30th AE seems to have the same keyboard as the 15c LE, including, unfortunately, the possibility of getting one with "flakey" keys.

My 12c AE has a flakey "CHS" key, one of my 15c's has a flakey "SST" key and the other a flakey Z+ key. Otherwise, the keyboards feel "good", IMHO.

Sorry for your flakey keys. But is't always nice to know that "I'm not the only one" with a new "bad" 12c. :-)

In my case, and even not considering the bad keys, the overall keyboard does not have nearly the same feel of the 15 LE, by a loooong shot. It just seems to be a totally different design of the feedback mechanism (even though I now know otherwise, thanks to all of you).
