    Got my $10 TAB key from the UK. Worth every cent.

    Jeez I gotta reduce the size of my pics. I also have to clean my keyboard apparently!

    So my keyboard on my r2 is slowly dying. Most of the keys on the left side no longer work and I need a new keyboard. The only ones I can find online are the international keyboards, and was wondering if they will work in my US machine.

    Yes. I am using the korean keyboard (which has US keys with korean keys in the bottom corner) and it works fine.

    I believe Korean and Chinese language are the only ones left on eBay in new condition but there are US ones that are used.

    Can also check aliexpress

    Thanks @ssj92 i always forget about aliexpress, unless is comes to cheap legos.

    So doing a quick look, is it important that most of the vendors are mentioning a green cable on the keyboard? I thought all m18x keyboarda were universal.

    Some have a green cable and some have blue. I’m not sure what the difference is. It’s strange how hard it is to find a US keyboard these days

    All M17x R3, M17x R4, M18x R1, and M18x R2 keyboards are interchangeable.

    technically I have a "m17x R4" in my M18x R2. Only difference is we have the macro keys

    The macro keys are a separate SKU anyway right?

    Yeah completely separate. I need one because the RGB is faulty. It’s the only thing wrong with my R2
