Those pictures make it look so much harder than it really is, lol.

There are two contact pins on the bottom of each switch. Desolder these from the PCB and you can pop the switch right out.

looks like Deck stopped making the 82 Toxic edition. only the 82 Ice edition is available on their website.

I noticed this too and am disappointed. If I were to purchase a Deck, it would have been that one.

Well i had to register to post a comment, read all posts from last year and was about to pull the trigger on the Deck Frost tactile until i read the last comment from PropNut and now i'm back to square one!
Well just to add to the fire i found this website http://www.guru-board.com/ looks like you can configure and do a lot of things to it and has hub and 3 types of cherry keys including reds! Bad thing no 10key and wont be available until 4thQ.

Those look pretty sweet. I'd definitely consider picking one of those up if I didn't have my Filco. And depending on the configuration options, I might even have to get one anyway.

Wow, those are nice. I just might pick one up when they're out to carry with me when I travel. My only concern is the printing method on the keys. I kind of hope that they're double-shot but I'm afraid to get my hopes up.

Those look nice. I'll have to wait to see what their pricing is though.

Apparently it was started by a group from GeekHack?

It was actually started by just one guy who made his own keyboard like that. But yeah, on geekhack.

Actually I'm pretty sure some guy modded a keyboard and everyone liked it, so he decided to start selling them.

  2. Deck Legend - Ice (tactile) - won't wear off, dyesub
  3. Das Original Professional - won't wear off, lasered
  4. Unicomp SpaceSaver 104 - won't wear off, dyesub

Rest of the answers are in the quote.
Whoa, this is good to know. Thank you! Approximately how long did it take for the lettering to wear off on your Majestouch?

Oh yeah, and I watched a video yesterday of some guy who was reviewing the Das Original Professional who complained that the lettering wore off on his, so he no longer recommends this board. Here's the video:

YouTube- Review of Das Keyboard Professional (I purposely made sure it's not embedded)

So, I guess if this is true, then I may have to re-think it. I guess I'm so picky that I would much rather not have the lettering wear off.

But fortunately, I have a little over 2½ weeks before I'm able to make a purchase.
