    Hi. I'm looking at buying a Priv, but I'm still concerned about the FEEL of the keyboard and the clickiness of the keys. I am fine with the size of the keyboard.

    Can anyone tell me their experiences with the keyboard? Especially those that have experience with multiple units and newer hardware builds. Thanks!

    All I can say is the keyboard is fine as far as I am concerned. I had a Passport before the Priv and a Z10 before that. In some ways the keyboard reminds me of the Torch, but not nearly as cramped.

    My first one was built/boxed in 2015. The one I have now was built/boxed mid-2016. Didn't notice much difference in the pkb at first. I only kept the first one for a couple weeks. I've been on the 2nd one now for a few months and the keys have gotten clickier over time. I still have issues with the zero and sym keys...i have to hit them just right or they feel dead. They are wider than the regular 3 row keys, but the clickpad underneath must not have been made wider for those 2 keys.

    I tried q10, passport and classic. I believe that the priv's keyboard is the most silent of all. Feedback is great on the priv, a little small compared to the other ones but I got used to it very quickly. I'm pretty sure that Q10 was the loudest.

    Mine seems to be plenty clicky. I've had it for just over a year now and I can hear and feel each key. I've never understood the complaints about the keyboard

    For me, the left side is plenty clicky, but the right side is mushy. It feels ok, but it's nowhere near the Classic or PPSE

    Same here. I got an eBay special used coupl'a days by a business to try... SYM key was mushy for a very brief period but has subsequently been fine... I wish they had made the ALT key a little taller though...
