RE: News from Swissmicros!
I received mine (S/N 00493) Sept-23 (PA/US), two days before the recall email. My 15C (purchased in 1983) has held up well and has been my go to calculator - the back writing is mostly worn off, the silver metal on the top/front is dented, the display has dust in it, the keyboard is grimy, and it's missing one of the rubber feet, but the writing on the key tops show no wear. I would have loved to have gotten an HP15C-LE, but by the time I found out about it, it was already out of production (but considering the negative feedback I didn't feel too bad). Since then I got an HP35s (which is a nice calculator), a WP34s (display not the best, not sure the durability of the key labels, and I'm not a fan of where the f/g/h keys a placed), and a DM15 (nifty gadget, but not for regular use).

I jumped at the chance to get a DM15L. I like it, though prefer the keys of the original 15C, they are plenty acceptable (I really like the "HP" trapezoidal [?] keys, which the DM15L does not have). It would also be nice if the f and g keys were a solid color like the 15C, but this is an insignificant complaint. Having more memory and speed is also nice.

Until I got the email, I didn't notice anything amiss with the keys. However, when I checked all the keys, I noticed that the Y^X key does not make the same noticeable click as all of the other keys. I'm guessing this is the problem, but won't know until the replacement PCB arrives. The ON key also doesn't make a loud click, but this key is also lower than the rest (similar to the 15C), so this may be intentional.

The slip case is also not as nice as the 15C's where it is much stiffer than the nice soft one with the 15C, and it is a little more difficult to pull the calculator out. Again, this is hardly worth mentioning.
