    One of the biggest challenges for a person to convert from all touch to pkb.

    Is the amount of effort it takes to press a key. I don't remember the 9700 needing this much effort to push.

    I say they should soften the keys to a regular PC keyboard (maybe just a touch harder). It would reduce thumb fatigue.

    What do you guys think?

    I think you're just not use to using a PKB.

    That effort put into the keypress is part of the PKB experience. It's the whole reason many people prefer mechanical keyboards over the ubiquitous rubber dome.

    While I agree that too hard is no good, there needs to be feeling!

    Can't comment on the keyone. I'm perfectly cool with the priv. took me awhile to get used to it without the thumb fatigue though. it's my first and only pkb. my hands hurt the first couple weeks that I actually committed to using it

    The keyone is so soft compared to the original Passport keys. I had sore thumbs from that one. Then again, before the Passport I had been using the Z30 so my fingers had to go through a conditioning period.

    I have to agree with you. The pressure needed on the KEYone keyboard reminds me of the original Passport. Just a little too firm. In contrast, the 9900 and Classic were perfection in my opinion.

    I think it needs to be more clicky, like the classic. The space bar on the keyone i has just the right feel to it, wondering why the rest of the keys don't

    So you know how when you go to the gym, your muscles are sore at first but then get stronger as they adapt? Well guess what, your thumbs have muscles too! So they'll adapt, just be patient. When I first went from my Z30 to my Classic and Passport combo, my thumbs would get sore too. But now, my thumbs fly through those PKB devices with such ease. I tried a demo KEYone and actually found the keys soft compared to the Classic and Passport.

    I wish the keys were clickier as well.

    When I first got my KEYone, the relative softness of the keys threw me off. Then again, I like clicky keyboards like the Classic.

    So coming from a Classic that was my daily driver for over 2 years, I'm still getting used to the not-as-clicky KEYone keyboard. Cheers.

    I absolutely disagree, sorry. I think they're perfect. The PRIV was too soft and mushy.
