Should likely have popped on here before buying, the promis known to have issues and you would have been warned. The non pro is the best keyboard I have ever used now that I am used to it.

I suddenly desire new keycaps though with the lettering on the front instead of the top and I would be very happy.

Same. Mine has been outstanding since I have had it. Plus, as for any of my other CoolerMaster products. Support has been outstanding as well. So, if you do have to RMA. Should be a smooth process.

So a couple weeks in and I already have discolor inaction on my s key, key quality is not gonna bring me down when everything else is so nice. I do not know if I should contact cm regarding this or just order a blank set of keys.

I own the quickfirerapid with cherry reds (tenkeyless) and the quickfirepro with cherry browns for typing. I love both boards and neither had any defects of any kind. High quality boards for a great price imo. I use the rapid for gaming and the reds are so responsive and amazing for fps, rts, and mmo's. I thought they wouldn't be as good for RTS but I find my apm is higher using the rapid with reds then my pro with browns.

As far as the keys wearing out, mine are fine after 3 months already. They are laser etched keys so they shouldn't wear off.

Some of the letter keys I have are already fading as if they were painted, one of the red arrow key replacements is done improperly and has a white blob at the top of one of the arrows. I am wondering if cm would possibly replace keys without having to rma the entire board, I mean it has only been like 2 weeks.

How did you get painted keys? Mine are clearly laser etched. Nothing is wrong with my red replacement keycaps either, they don't appear laser etched though like the standard keys, simply painted.

Same keyboard as me. However, mine is from Tia-wain from before they officially released in the states.
