I must disagree, I've got a filco MJ2 with some pinging keys. 2 of them I rarely use (like esc and instert), but I've got the Y pinging.
I know some will eagerly write it off as 'McRip' effect. I've done blind tests with someone else randomly pressing keys, I've taken out the pinging keys every single time. It's very faint though, and I'ma perfectionist myself. I did get used to it because you have to pay attention, but that doesn't take away from the fact that it is there.
Everyone's own opinion I guess...
I even asked other people to listen carefullty and try to listen for a 'high pitched metallic noise'. I've pressed 10 different keys and put the Y in there twice. One of my friends took them both out from the first time (The Y is the loudest), and one other got one but missed the second one. Still, they had to listen carefully, but you must admit getting 2 keys out of 10 right is a 1/(2^10) chance. hell of alot of coincidence for something that doesn't exist.
adn btw: to stay objective I asked my sis (who by the time did not know what the hell was going on) which keys she should press, so I could stay out of it.Edited by llama16 - 3/30/12 at 9:56am
