I don't even use those keys, I find them annoying as hell. Why even both using those things lol? They don't even sit level with the rest of the board.

I share the same thought I hate it when the lettering starts to fade and or if the keys start having gloss ! btw its better if you order some dye sub keycaps from feng on ebay, he has some very nice pbt keycaps. Though have yet to buy a qfr once I get it I will definitely get the browns with some grey pbt dye sub keycaps.

The fading I am able to accept at this point, the red arrow key with the white bloch however drives me nuts, luckily I don't have to use it.

Mine are clearly painted/printed and are fading pretty good already.

It's lasered btw. Black keys Lasered and then infilled stain after a while.

The Keyboard Manufacturers dirty little secret.

You can actually feel the lettering which is highly unpleasant at first but you forget about it after a while. I still do not grasp why putting letters on the front instead of top has not become the fad.

Yeah, the key caps on the QFR almost feels like braille. I also wish Coolermaster thought out the key caps a little better. Either put some kind of protective layer over the lettering like some Filco's have OR print the lettering on the side like the Filco Ninja and don't bother with the protective layer. I would happily pay an extra $15 for this because buying a set of replacement key caps from WASD is much more than that.

I feel the need to repeat this again, I own 3-5 year old rubber dome keyboards from dell and razer that have no fading or missing lettering while this quick fire rapid has stained/faded in as little as a few weeks of use with clean hands.

Ya I paid full price for my black because I have an OCD about ordering things and have to get them the day after I buy them lol. So I had to use amazon prime , so ya I likely could have bought a more expensive board for the price I would pay for caps. It is still a good keyboard , they just really dropped the ball with the lettering.
