No it's not electrically stuck, is mechanically stuck: it remains lowered if pressed slightly off center.

Also found an old topic with a guy in same situation (http://www.overclock.net/computer-pe...-keyboard.html). Didn't help much either from reading that.

I may just have to get the BW $97 / BWU $145 if I can't get my hands on a decently priced XArmor.
Yeah Australia really sucks when it comes to finding mech keyboards. You can get Xarmor from amazon as the seller there can ship international but the shipping will cost you an arm and leg ($60 for shipping). You might be more interested in this http://mechkeyboards.com/9008a.html if you don't need backlit.

I'd RMA that if I was you.

Indeed is what I did, I'm just waiting for clearer infos from their support about the refund and the shipment costs.

Seem that the ordering process is a bit quicker than the RMA one, strange, very strange...

Cheers for the site, seems like they only have one product, the Ducky DK9008available though. I'll look into it anyway, appreciate it.

I own both Keyboards and i say the black widow ut is a better product for me which feels more solid has a better sound and key feel and also its been my main keyboard now sense i got it which was shipped too me when it came out because i preordered it.

And no im not a fan boy of razer sense i own more other products and i replaced my razer mamba with a xai

Oh and ever sense i switch i don't even miss NKRO.

But the xarmor is also a great keyboard which i use on my server pc.

But i just prefer the build quality and the key feel and the sound of the black widow ut.

The one thing the Xarmor does best is the black lit lighting is a bit more brighter on the xarmor But the blackwidow is fine the way it is because i mostly keep it on low anyways, Or sometimes off just depends on what mood i am in lol Sense i hardly look at the keys anyways.

DuckieHo I would think you would be happy with the black widow Pretty much they the same keyboard but like i said the black widow feels better and the sound is better which is a more deeper click and sound, And the build quality is very good, Which im not sure if that changes after the first batch of black widow but mine is a first batch and have no problems and just feels really solid.

Also, as other mentioned, the glossy finish of the razer drove me insane
Hmm the keys on my black widow first batch is bigger than my xarmor first batch keyboard, Maybe they changed it in the later versions?

The glossy finish doesn't drive me nuts which stays pretty clean for me i just wipe it down every other day.

And for the solid feel its different from what you said there too so it might be different dates the keyboard was made , Sense my first batch bw is more solid than the xarmor.


But ya people have different opinions.

That U9BL-S is on sale for $20 off on ergogeek.com. That might make things a little easier.

I have the U9BL-S and love it. It has none of the flaws of the previous generation of xarmor boards (old U9BL). Finish and build quality is excellent.
