Rosewill, Das, Filco, & Ducky are all equal when it comes to the build quality, durability, etc.
The real difference would come down to features, casing, & cost.

Cool, Thank you both for your answers.

imo it looks way better with the branding that just a boring keyboard with nothing...




Do u see how sexy this Black keyboard with red looks?

I prefer my 'boring' Filco.

(Not my pic obviously)

Anything that would prevent me from doing this. Or should I just learn not to press the keys that hard?

Did you hit your keys with ball pein hammers? tongue.gif

On a serious note, your key caps are most likely made from ABS which is common but the softest of the plastics used. Switching to PBT key caps may help as they are the hardest key material, but they will feel different too. It looks like you use otaku (blank) keys, so you won't need to worry about getting doubleshot keys to prevent the legend wearing off.

So blank PBT keys may be your best bet. I'll let others weigh in on my accuracy, such as ripster or akimbo, as I'm no expert and only gotten into keyboards in the last year or so (and only extensively recently).

Edit: this would also prevent needing a new board, unless you actually broke some of your switches (may possibly only need some grease or lube to get back to normal).

This is the mechanical keyboard club; I would expect nothing less from keyboard enthusiasts. Getting things exactly the way we want them is why we're here tongue.gif

I just checked and yes, the keycaps in DasKeyboard are abs, might be the reason why the cap bent so much. I had to replace a few switches (s and d) because apparently, I tend to press this babies way too hard when jumping around while playing games. The keyboard is now functional, with minor disruption from the s key (I guess I pushed that one a bit too far, both literally and figuratively) I'm looking for a replacement right now, would really like to try some alps or cherry red/brown. It's kinda hard to find decent mechanical keyboard in EU for an acceptable price. I'd buy some ducky models, but the shipping costs more than the keyboard itself :(

You think he's picky for not wanting letters on keycaps?
Boy there's a whole new world awaiting you at the keyboard forums.
