My fellow officers have bugged me so much about it that for a while I quit bringing it along with me. I have 50 fellow students training with me and all have bugged me about it. The utility for military is amazing.
What I would really like is a KDX though. ALL Army field manuals now are electronic in pdf format. You can't get printed FMs anymore. I would love to be able to carry around all of my required FMs on a DX.
I don't know if the K1 is sturdier than the K2 because I haven't broken one yet (please no, please never), but we have both in our house and the K2 does seem a lot sturdier and not so fragile. The buttons on the K1 seem like they could just fall off where the buttons on the K2 are more intgrated into the frame of the device.mlewis78 said:2) He writes that the K2 is sturdier than his K1. Would someone here who has both like to comment? I haven't ever held a K2, but I know it's thinner. Just wondered if it's more durable/sturdy.
