Structurally, it didn't blow me away, but I didn't find it to be that flimsy. I am not sure what DUO you mean, but I haven't found any current keyboards to feel that cheaply made. My main computer uses a $40 wired Logitech keyboard I picked up at some B&M and I find it's been pretty solid overall.
> "And more importantly does it "feel" like it could break/twist when picked up with one hand from either the bottom left or right. These two points seem to be the weakest in the old design."
From what I recall, no. I gave the keyboard back once the review was published, so I can't go back and give it that exact test, but I don't remember it being like that. I have a Logitech PS3 keyboard here that IS like that though.
That all said, from what you describe... no it's not a cheaply made keyboard. It's light, but I don't think it's flimsy to the degree that you describe.
