I’m not as negative, after they replaced most of the hardware in my MacBook and it came with one of the newer versions of the keyboard. It’s not great, but more less as good as most laptop keyboards. And if they fix the reliability issues with them I’d not classify them as useless.
There are more “feedback” when you type and that means it feels better. But the main thing I notice is that it works better for me. With the old ones I had a lot of issues with the shift key not reliably registering. It’s not a faulty hardware thing but more that the hardware don’t work with where and how hard I pressed down.
