Post subject: What are the differences between Decks and cop car keyboards

There are more than just cosmetic differences between the Deck and the “cop car” keyboards. The “cop car” keyboards have aluminum sub-chassis, splashguards to protect against spills, rain, and other foreign material entering the keyboard, and special printed circuit board assemblies for better noise immunity to electrical interference caused by high power police radios operating in very close proximity to the keyboards. All of these things would add significant cost to the Deck keyboard. The splashguard also makes the keys feel very “stiff” and wouldn’t be suitable for fast-action gaming.
