T430s/X230 keyboard issues: keys crumbled away

Recently. there in the Russian Lenovo Community were 5 reports about keyboard issues -- keys were crumbled away. The problem is about key mounting: key latches got rubbed after few weeks of daily usage.

Larger image could be found at http://fotkidepo.ru/?id=photo:815301 (and push loupe icon below the image bottom right corner).

 

Affected models: T430s and X230, both US and RUS configurations.

Keyboard types:

  • FRU 04W3137, CS12 B/L KBD USE SRX
  • FRU 04W3123, CS12-KBD RUS SRX

Is there anybody else experiencing similar issues with their brand new precision keyboard?
