Could you please post a picture with both dm42 aside one another?

Re: New DM42S hardware

I just recently received a DM42 with the "Improved" keyboard. Compared to my old DM42 (~One year old) and my DM41X Beta Unit, I consider it to be a vast improvement.

I just did a bunch of printing with a DM42, 41CL with Blinky, and DM41X. No burning issues on my 82240B. This is the one that I replaced the burned print head on previously. I did not mean to stir up trouble by suggesting there is something wrong with the DM41X. Mine did burn up right after starting...

Re: Bulge in the steel case of DM41X and suggested solution

Are the characters on the keys painted bright yellow rather than orangish as displayed on this site? Thank you!
