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....


I would't mind living with a cheap one for a while.

Replacing the LED would be easy but I think I'm gonna send it for warranty...

Does this happen frequently?

Common with some I hear...

Less common with some others.

I recently sole a Steelseries merc stealth (membrane switches) with no dead LED's after owning for about 3 years, and spilling probably over a gallon of beer (and a few coffees) on.

The color of the LEDs matter a lot too. I'd never had an issue with the membrane Logitech I had, nor the DS3 I have now, with green and white LEDs respectively. Yet, I often hear the people with blue or red LEDs complaining about dead ones.

I ordered a code with clears, Amazon Prime $155, same as on WASD website, but 2 free day shipping(prime) winning.

Now who wants to mod it to ergo-clears for me when I hate the heavier springs?

Don't say that Clears are absolutely amazing switches, you won't hate them. Actually, what switches are you using now?

Do you like them? If so then yeah, probably won't like Clears, I hated my Blues, too light and too loud, Blacks were about right but were linear rolleyes.gif Clears were like a god send when I finally got my CODE after a year of using Blacks and hating every minute of it.

Blue SKCM are the absolutely nicest switches I've ever used. They are smooth like Cherry MX Red but clicky, and they have a light tactility somewhere in between Browns and Clears, just like Ergos. They also take 70gf to actuate, right in between Greens and Blues. wink.gif
