i sold one, and used it while installing the machine, and must say i 
like it better than the keyboard of the x220.

typing is very OK
but there are other advantages too, like

* no space under the key, so nothing can stick there
* much simpler to clean
* lighting from the key-bottom
* more silent while typing
