I had one of the first DM42 and sold it just 2 month later, because the keyboard was the worst thing I ever had in a calculator.

Is the keyboard in the newest generation updated? Or are still issues with it?

Thanks for your feedbacks.

Yes. Any DM42s ordered now have the new improved keyboard.

"Note that the production DM41X (and new DM42) have a much improved new keyboard design, addressing user comments about pressure needed to click keys, feel/response, possibly missed keys, etc."

Early reviews report a greatly improved keyboard.

"Finally a keyboard that works, it took SM several years to solve this issue, but they nailed it."

"Bottom line: the keyboard, while certainly not as legendary as the 41C (nothing is), is still a huge improvement over the original DM42 design, and is a joy to use."

"So it's still firmer than a Voyager's keyboard, but a very noticeable improvement over the original DM42, both in feel and responsiveness."
