We have this industrial grade lysol but I'm scared its gonna ruin the color. I accidentaly sprayed it on my door and now there's white spots on it. Lol

I used it for 3 days of typing and the letters of the WASD cluster are starting to darken pretty fast. Guess I should buy WASD keys and a key cap puller from EK.

I've been using this keyboard on my gaming PC for a little over a month now, and I'm very happy with it! I immediately warmed to the feel of the keys and how the resistance would allow me keep a key slightly depressed, so that I could hit the key faster. After a little practice I am able to do this and press the key just far enough to respond without bottoming out (most of the time), which gives me way faster input than my old membrane keyboard. I also do a little programming at home and I find typing on this keyboard to be very pleasant. I've seen plenty of people mention that the stiffness of the switches isn't ideal, but I found that once you get the amount of force required to register a keypress without bottoming out, typing feels really good.

My only complaints/issues so far are the placement of the backslash key (the real problem is that it makes right shift smaller) and that the dye on the WASD keys started to fade after only a few days. I'm mostly accustomed to the key placement now and I'm not very uptight about how the keys look, so these aren't major issues but are worth mentioning.

I'm thinking about buying this keyboard.
Is tapping hell fast easy and comfortable with those black switches? Or are they a bit too stiff?

I Just received mine about an hour ago and I'd say that they are softly resistant to pressure. It's more pressure than a regular rubber dome but a much smoother action. Absolutely lovely compared to a cheapo. I'd recommend this model to you.

Hey guys, I told you about me trying to dye my keycaps legend last week. Here's an update.

So I got me a Rit dye/tint Black($2.50 @StaterBros.), homemade keycap puller(read about it in forum and decided to make one for myself) using 2 paperclip, keyring, and a longnose.

Here's how I made my homemade keycap puller: things you need: straightened paperclip, keyring, and a longnose.

Take one key ex: ESC key and use it as a guide to bend the paperclip like this. Try to get both ends the same length as close as you can, if it came out uneven use the cutter on your longnose, if it has one, to cut the paperclip ends at the same length.

Do the following for the paperclip endings.

You should have something like this.

Then put both in the keyring till you have something like this.

Here's a still image of the homemade keycap puller in action.

I tried dyeing my ESC key using the laziest way, microwaved water and it look something like this.

At first, I tried applying a drop of the dye on the key, but it failed. Then I tried dipping the ESC key face down in the cup, but apparently the hot water turned out cold in 5 minutes in this cold weather. The dye instruction says use boiling water and let it soak, but I didn't too lazy to do it tonight.

So my ESC key after attempting to dye it using the lazy method looks like this.

I'll try to do the right way of dyeing tomorrow.

Btw, my WASD keys are still clean, cuz i use gloves when using it lol.

I'll also include this in my first post.
