    Darn it. Problem with the keyboard, so time to think about a new one.

    Thought I'd ask BG. Seems on my old Logitech keyboard, the K key is starting to malfunction. I have to hit it JUST right or my k's are missing ><

    They don't make washable keyboards anymore, or even that particular model. Thought I'd bring the question to BG; once that gets more than just "eww annoying!" what would be a good keyboard to get?

    I've been using a Corsair K55 for about a year now and it's been decent .

    Looks like they have a new version that's $45 or $60 with a palm rest.

    Have you tried popping the key off and cleaning it with a swab and rubbing alcohol? Could just be gunk stuck inside or a bread crumb?

    NynJa; I'll see about that. This is basically a membrane kb though. Been thinking I should actually..mm..wash it..for a while now. (As I said, you can actually submerge it in the sink and wash it.)

    The keys don't really come off but it came with a brush to get crud out. Might be time to take it off and dunk it in the sink tho. Here's a old review so you know what we're talking about. With mine, a lot of the letters have worn off with hard use really and it might be in the cards to replace it once I upgrade the pc. It's lasted over 6 years so yeah, been pretty reliable. Shame they no longer make this.

    Cheap: https://a.co/d/1CdYLqO (75% aka no numpad and condensed arrow keys); https://a.co/d/7xhvHrU (90%, has numpad, only slightly condensed)

    Expensive: https://a.co/d/1xVuhNF (TKL aka no numpad); https://a.co/d/aqMY7I0 (full size)

    915 is fantastic but fuck if the paint hasn't come off the WASD like every other keyboard I've owned.

    I expected better paint for the price lol

    Mad; I have that problem too. Even with laser cut keys, the paint just.wears. off.

    Must be how I type or something about my fingers. That's why I try to go with cheaper options; if my keyboard is going to get beat up, might as well not pay a lot.

    You want double shot keycaps. With those, the legend is a physical plastic part of the key.

    Thanks prothesar. I'll look for those. Enough with the wearing.
