Any of you guys know anything about its rollover?
They are 2KRO, but the matrix is decent, I haven't ran into any issues, although I mainly play RTS games, and not a lot of FPS games. I have played some FPS games on them though without problems. The matrix is probably better than most rubber dome keyboards anyway.
On another note, given that the 82G' was made from 1993-1996, it would seem somewhat unlikely that yours was made in 1984
This is a common thing that eBay sellers do - On the label on the back, there's a copyright notice from IBM or Lexmark dated 1984, and some think that this is the production date (or want everyone else to think it to make the keyboard look more rare and vintage). This was the year that the particular implementation of the buckling spring used in the Model M was introduced. The first regular Model M entered production in mid 1985. The actual production date for the keyboard is usually on the other side of the label, and usually jumps out more than the copyright
