Steelseries 6GV2 help finding.. - Page 3

post #21 of 23
What I have found with the MX Blacks is that if you rest your fingers on the keys, you can very easily actuate the key without noticing it. The point isn't that the black switches cause accidental key presses, just that you can't tell when you accidentally depress the key.

The idea behind them preventing accidental key presses comes from the stiffness of the key, but the blacks really aren't THAT stiff at the engagement point (60cN). Cherry blue switches require the same amount of force to overcome the tactile bump.

Simple solution...don't rest your fingers on the keys with any real weight. This isn't usually a problem in gaming (what most use the black switches for) because each keystroke is deliberate. If you rest your fingers on the spacebar with enough force to depress it, then your doing it wrong.

I agree with above post. I am not clumsy type that would make a lot of typos or accidental clicks just like that - the accidental clicks happen when you are not aware of it.

For example, I am playing WoW (WSAD) and try reach for "T" or "Y" button, while my thumb finger rests on space, the movement of my hand can couse accidental click. Sure you can learn how to avoid it, by putting less weight on your thumb, but it will take some time. (atleast for me, coming from standard keyboard). You are using space in most games, so you just have to learn to weight manage your thumb

I wouldnt really call them "stiff" either. Maybe when you bottom out the key, which often isnt a case.

This usually happens with me on laptops I rest my hand on the keys whilst watching a movie and accidently press a key so it's not biggy.
