The only problem I have with the keyboard so far is that it fails to accept the 2nd "L" in "lol" if I type extremely fast.

If anything really bad happens, I'm sure ABS will honor their warranty. So in the end, it's all good in my book.

+ rep for your knowledge!
i'm sure the ABS M1 is durable and will last but isn't quality what we always advertise in countless "recommend me a keyboard" threads. it's just my opinion and how I feel about it. I buy mechanical keyboards, not just for the properties of a mechanical switch but quality.

correction, I think it's presumed they fixed the modifier problem when they changed to Fukka switches not at launch however Matias Tactile Pro 2.0 and I think the steelseries 7G also had this problem at launch.

Yeah, I know you're just trying to help and I thank you for pointing the little problems ahead of time (If anything does happen).

Like I said, I'm new to mechanical keyboards and I just wanted something brand new with a warranty at a reasonable price. I know I could of invested a little bit more and got a nicer one, but I wasn't sure if I would like it or not since I've used basic microsoft rubber dome keyboards for a majority of my life.

With that said, I'll probably move on to a Filco or Das with Cherry MX blues in around a year or two

I know , I was just pointing out the rollover problem here

It doesn't really effect me, but manyak still has the ABS M1 listed as 6KRO. No worries though, I knew about the problem before purchasing the keyboard, I'm just confirming

One of these days I'll update that guide. I just need to get my domain working again first, so I can get off of this stupid P1-120Mhz.

What has made you become displeased with the ABS M1? I mean, in what way were you using it that made you become displeased with the tactile feel and the response?

Could it because you're just not used to it yet? I've had the Majestouch Tactile Click since Tuesday, March 9th and I think I'm just now beginning to be at a point where I'm used to it enough that when I'm typing, I can focus more on what I'm typing as opposed to trying to simultaneously focus on not bottoming out while typing. I'm not 100% there yet, but that's because I'm slower than most people at such things.

So, I guess I'm curious about one thing because I totally forgot: how long have you had the ABS M1?
About half a year. I just noticed that I get a faster response on my laptop keys then my M1. And that effects my gaming just a tiny bit but enough for me to notice. The extra force kinda gets annoying if your away from typing for a while. I love the feel, if only it wasn't so much force.

@Manyak I'm not even close to giving up on mech keyboards just the ABS M1 is getting to me. I need something fast response like low force.
I'm waiting on the 6Gv2.

I have tried looking for them here and only find them on-line, but....

If you want one that bad and willing to pay shipping, I can buy one and mail it to you. My price is 1 Dr. Pepper = $35Nt

I have nothing but time on my hands 24/7, so if there's absolutely any way that I can help, then please tell me. I can send any work I do to you via a private message so that all you have to do is copy/paste it.

I realize that there are many things I won't be able to do due to my lack of knowledge, but I want to do whatever I can.
