I use the towel method for my keyboard and mouse when I feel like it. Other than that, when I game I am typically on my Razer Orbweaver Stealth that took some getting used to but the wrist/palm rest are perfect for my hand. I'm not typically a Razer fan but I like the brown Cherrys in it and how it conforms to the shape of my hand.

for the most part, till recently, i still looked at the keyboard while i type. I think now i type the same number of words as before just that i don't have to keep shifting my eyes between the screen and keyboard as often. lol.
and good idea! that would be a much cheaper alternative....free even thumb.gif

Luckily for me I have a full woodworking shop in my garage so once my KB get's here I'll take some measurements and try to make something as nice as this filco one.

I only recently got a wrist rest for my keyboard. I got the walnut 60% one from mk.com and it is pretty awesome. I also bought an ebony TKL wrist rest from massdrop which should be here soon. My brother got a grafiti one a while back but it's pretty cheap feeling and I hate it.

I have a huge mouse mat, which prevents my wrists from getting sore from pressure resting them on the table. And I find I don't nee to float my wrists due to the fact my hand are so god damned big, in-fact cherry profile is more comfortable for me to type on then the lower profiles.

Well my hands are huge too so I can rest my hands on the table but if I type too much like that I start getting a pinched feeling in my wrists which... isn't good. Floating cuts down on the RSI. I know for some users it gets as bad as carpal tunnel.

Hi everyone. I have a CM Storm Quickfire TK with brown switch white leds that I bought 6 mouths ago, everything was fine until yesterday when I noticed that the led of the key B is off, like dead.

I could send it for warranty, but I bought it in another country so it will take a very long time to get it back so I would have to buy a cheap one to replace it.

I would like to know what you guys think, should I send it for warranty or should I just fix it myself. I don't know if I can find a replacement led around here...

This is why we need > 1 decent keyboard each... wink.gif

Ideally, get it fixed under warranty - but... If you can't get a replacement and don't have a spare - can you live with a cheap kbd while waiting?
Can you afford a decent keyboard while waiting?

If no to these questions - do you have good soldering skills?

No, no and yes?

LED's are cheap on ebay....
