Hey guys, I got a question you. I'm lookin to buy a mechanical keyboard, there's just one problem. The keyboard I want is only available with US layout. Is it possible to convert it to European layout, if so, how easy/time consuming would it be?

To change the keys physical location is quite difficult and time consuming. However you can just change the layout to EU and a lot of the keys functions will change, just the legends will be incorrect. I use a Japanese keyboard set to US layout... but that's mostly a matter of ignoring the extra keys and legends.

I think you may be able to remap any missing keys with software if any functionality is missing from setting the layout to EU.

Alright, thank you for the reply. I don't think I'll ever get used to a keyboard with a different layout.
I've just written an email to wasdkeyboards.com about making a white keyboard. Does anyone have any experience with their keyboards?

Is there any safe way to remove the rosewill logo on their keyboard without hurting the finish of the plastic?

I have been leaning towards getting a CM Trigger when it is available, but I am worried that the rubbery material on the keys will wear out as someone pointed out for the other CM keyboards. Would there be a way to replace the key caps in the future with backlight friendly key caps?

Also, I am torn between getting a brown switch version upon release or waiting later for a red switch version. Does anyone know how long the red switch version will be released after the brown switch version? How different are the two switch types?

rubbery material on the keys? Don't know about that. The ones I am typing on now are a nice hard plastic feeling. The caps are a bit lighter than some of the other boards I have tried but not rubbery. Have you heard something about the Trigger I have not?

The other questions? Look for the CM forum in the OCN vendors section. I bet they would be able to tell you fast there.
