    I've read several posts discussing an 8330 housing on an 8320 and possible issues....will the 8230 housing fit on an 8330?

    Thanks!

    I've never seen any pics of it, only the 8330 housing on an 83XX as you mentioned.

    Why would you want to put an 8320 housing on a 8330, if you don't mind me asking?

    It will fit but the opening for the notification LED will be slightly off.

    That wont be a problem, actually. The window is long and the LED position is high on an 8330 to begin with.

    There were some on ebay for the 8320s that were in the color I want...the ones for the 8330s were a little more expensive....don't know why...

    So you think it will work okay?

    It will, and the slight position difference for the LED should be
    of no great issue

    Again, AFAIK yours would be the first one. I think it will work, but can't say 100 percent.

    You won't mind the silver colored homerow keys above the keypad?

    You have to buy an 83XX keyboard tray as well if the housing doesn't come with it. The KB trays aren't interchangeable between the 2 models.

    I think I'll just go with the black 8330 instead, to save myself some possible frustration. Thanks for all the responses.

    Thanks. I have a dark purple one on it now, and I LOVE it, but it's kind of beat up and the black looks really nice, so I'll give it a shot.
