HP35S keyboard



#2

I'm interested in finding out how the HP35S keyboard is performing for those owners that have been using it on a regular basis over the last couple of years. Has anyone had an increase in the number of missed keystrokes or other problems attributable to faulty contacts in the cursor keys?


#3

IMHO, it hasn't changed since the day I got it. Granted, I don't use it as much as I do my 30b, but I still use it here and there. Still solid and clicky. ;-)

#4

Mine was a "daily driver" from essentially the day HP released it until I got a 15C LE. No change for me over that time.

#5

Mine has also been in daily use since 2007, the 2-way zip on the case is now a 1-way zip only, but no problems with key action.

#6

I have had mine for about 3 years now. Although I do not use it daily, I do still use it regularly. The keys are all still working fine and clicking nicely. The missed keystroke problem when typing fast is still there, this is more of a software problem (I have purchased the emulator and the problem exists there too - as do all the bugs).

#7

Moderate use.

Crisp and responsive keyboard.

Packin' in Classic (HP.45) case.

Same here. I use one at work and one at home regularly. No problems at all.


#9

Thanks for the replies. It sounds like the calculator is holding up well mechanically.

#10

Mine is one of those handed out at the 2007 meeting. I use it regularly, but not hard, and it works fine. I do watch the display to make sure all key presses have registered - there have been some (very occasional) clicks when nothing was entered.
