I got my QF Pro in the mail yesterday, took some time last night and tore it apart, cleaned everything real well and decided that because it was late and I was tired, I was only going to put the o-rings on the keys I use the most (letters, num pad, punctuations, etc.), and just leave the other keys normal. Well, now I'm kicking myself.
I brought the keyboard into work, and the keys I put the o-rings on are prefect (feel good, nice and quite), but every time I hit the back space, a number key (above the letters) or my spacebar, it is SSSOOOO loud! The switches are MX Browns, so it's not as bad as the Blues on my Ducky at home, but in my very
quiet office, they sound terrible!
I don't feel like lugging this thing back home, so I'm going to have to bring my key puller and o-rings to work and do it here (that should get some weird looks), but I have to do something. I love having the mech here at work (especially since I’m on this thing 8+ hours a day), but these non o-ringed keys are driving me nuts (and I can just imagine what my co workers are thinking of me right now).
Anyway, just a tip…
Also, a question about o-rings: when I put them on the larger keys (spacebar, backspace, etc) should I put them on all of the stems, or just the one with the switch (as they all have 2 dummy stems and one with the switch)? Just wanted to see what you guys thought. Thanks!
