Deck Legend 105 Ice Linear

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
I know Deck is great, but I've got two questions:
1) Does this KB come with the skull-and-crossbones key? If so, how do I replace, say the Esc key with it?
2) Are the Cherry Blacks good to type on? (better than rubber dome)?

I received a skull key with my Deck 82 Ice, so I can't see them not including one with a Legend. You can ask them to be sure - they have contact info listed. http://www.deckkeyboards.com/contact_us.php

Installing it is a matter of lifting the key evenly and snapping the new one on. You can pay ~$5 for a puller or make one, instructions are available online. Some people use a screwdriver, which is a little risky to me on a >$100 keyboard...

The cherry blacks are great to type on. Much better than a rubber dome.

My Deck 82 Ice is great, I can't recommend a Deck highly enough. From my experience, they also ship fast on things in stock.

1. I got the keyboard 2nd handed, so I am not sure but mine does included the skull-and-crossbones key. To replace the key simply use a pan head screw driver to light move it up or get a cap remover or like the video on

.


2. As for typing it is very good, I felt it almost typed as good as my DAS ultimate (cherry blue). Does takes some time to get adjust to since the key doesn't bottom out like the Cherry Blue switches.

Mmm.

No

Buy the tactile version and possibly mod it as ergo clears.

But I need a backlight and Xarmor's QC scares me.

The only true problem of Xarmor is the backlit level not stored after a reset.

Everything else is just reverse fanboysm from spread from a couple of genius.

I suggest you to go Xarmor and use the remaining 50$ for a dinner with a nice girl

Or save those $50 for when you have to mail your keyboard in for RMA and then XArmor tells you nothing is wrong with your keyboard and they charge you $25 for telling you that

They are annoying to type on and yes they come with a skull & crossbones key from the factory.

What about the Deck 82? I like it's compactness. I will be replacing the casing with an opaque black one and the cable with obnoxious LED's with another one.

Why are they annoying to type on? I need a step up from rubber dome crap and the Deck 82 seems perfect and the compactness would help me.

I just don't like typing on linear switches very much. Especially since I almost exclusively use browns at this point, whenever I go over to my machine with my Legend Fire it takes me a few minutes to get used to the keys.
