I understand and acknowledge your point, but there is a flaw in your logic; the new keyboard I received was made by Dell as well and it works perfectly. I have decided that the new keyboard has at least 300% (guesstimate) more of a solid feel than the old keyboard. I'm going to keep the old one around in case of emergencies.

Besides, I don't think "build quality" is the reason why the older keyboard sucks.
Dell's cheaper build quality is noticeable in its arguably dull grey and blue plastic (?) case. When my computer is out of its warranty, I'm going to take it apart and paint it black.
