post #11 of 27
Last year at college my friend spilled his drink all over my keyboard. I threw that bad boy in the shower for a while and let it dry out over a few days. After all that, it actually worked better than when I first got it!

Advise to all: Don't give up on your keyboards because of a spill, there's a good chance you can salvage it.

Desperate times call for desperate measures I hope I'll be as lucky as you guys if( and when) I spill something on my keyboard.
post #14 of 27
I don't see how you're lucky at all in this situation. You bought yourself exactly the same keyboard for no reason. So now you have two identical (functional) keyboards and you don't plan on selling either of them. If you've been at all curious about other switches, sell one of your Das keyboards and get yourself a different one

You can put keyboards in dishwashers (no soap) to clean them. Works really well, just don't plug it in until it's completely dry.

Getting electronics wet isn't the issue. It's when the water causes a short and destroys components that cause problems. Some equipment is more resilient to shorting than others, keyboards tend to be this way, probably due to their simplicity.

False RMA's raise prices. Do you want to pay more because of the guy that keeps RMA-ing CPU's to get one that overclocks to his liking? Or even worse, paying for the guy who RMA'd equipment he destroyed, because then they actually have to pay to fix it on top of shipping.

I certainly don't feel like paying for them...
But we do, because we have to.

You already bought a second one, so to me that's not really a good justification as you clearly can afford it.

I'm not here to tell you what you should or shouldn't do, just informing you of why people respond poorly to false RMAs, including myself.
