    Does anyone know where to get a replacement keyboard that actually has it spacebar working. Since I'm going to be stuck with the miserable device for the foreseeable future, I might as well get it working while I wait of my fxi order or the Onward solution, which is increasingly falling into the "NGH" (not gonna happen) cohort.

    Is sad to put another $50 into a device like that....

    If you pick a seller with a good return policy.... that might be your best bet.

    There are many different sellers on AliExpress and eBay who have KEY2 keyboards in stock.
    Try to buy from one where you can see the build date stamped on the metal part on the back of the spacebar, ideally should be a 2019 date.

    Alternatively, I have two spare keyboards myself. I don't think I'll actually need both of them when there are upcoming PKB devices, so maybe I can sell you one of mine. It would be a black one, with a build date of November 2019 which usually means a better spacebar than some of the 2018 models.

    True, but he's the one calling it a "miserable device"....

    If someone here has bought and installed one and it was good... they'll have to let him know. But I think it's pot luck...

    This one for example, being red, has to be a 2019 unit:

    All these keyboards on eBay and AliExpress should be brand new.

    Boon is an active member here and even has positive feedback from CB sales - I'd say you can trust him.
