KU1255 Keyboard

Date:September 4, 2014
"No USM cable comes with it. You have to supply your own. Minor.
I sure do wish it was bigger. The 40A5091 was much nicer, please bring it back!!
If not that exact model some version of a full size keyboard with a Trackpoint.T
Lenovo has inherited the brilliant Trackpoint design. OK skid pads won. I cannot understand why they did but that is the way it is.
But for those of us that use the TrackPoint there is nothing better if you make it I will buy it. Myself and I am sure many others will."

X1 Carbon Dream Come True

Date:August 11, 2014
"I purchased the ThinkPad USB 3.0 Hub for my X1 and last second decided to see if Lenovo had the forethought to port over the amazing keyboard from the X1 to a USB. Thank goodness. This thing feels amazing. The first one I received had the middle scroll button stick a little. 5 minute call to Lenovo and a new one was on the way at no charge with a prepaid box to ship the old one back. Fantastic customer service on top of a fantastic product makes it hard to recommend anything else.
On a side note: Lenovo, whenever you decide to update this keyboard I have two suggestions:
1. Make it back lit (I would buy another one tomorrow).
2. Don't use the newest X1 keyboard layout. Not a fan.

No real middle mouse button

Date:June 24, 2014
"I'm an X windows user, and make extensive use of the middle mouse button with the trackpoint. I've used many Lenovo laptops and keyboards and until now loved them all because they had a three button mouse built right into the keyboard.
Unfortunately, the middle mouse button on this keyboard is not really a middle mouse button, because it doesn't allow you to drag. The minute you drag, the mouse button is reported as released and instead up and down movement gets reported as scroll wheel events. Worse, I can't even get the horizontal scroll wheel to work, because it seems to get reported as a completely different class of usb hid event.
What's so frustrating about this is that it's trivial to configure the X server to emulate a scroll wheel given a third mouse button, but almost impossible to do the converse. Why did Lenovo do this do the keyboard instead of just having the driver software or configuration handle scrollwheel emulation for people who want it?"
