It has a couple of old design flaws and a potential new one. All games use keys outside the "warzone." In a darkened environment it's finding the isolated ones that is most tricky, not the clumped together ones. Once I put my middle finger on the 'W' key, my fingers are naturally positioned to use the ASDF keys. Back-lighting should be available on any key the gamer wants backlit; so a thoughtful designer who designs for the enthusiast market might as well make the whole lot user-definable. What is specifically needed for the "warzone" keys is for the glyphs on them to be dye sublimated. Every fricken' backlit gamer's keyboard I've ever owned I've begun wearing off the glyphs after just a couple of months.... even on the expensive Corsair K90 Vengeance. It just makes for a shabby appearance.

The potential new flaw is the keyboard angle relative to the wrist rest. I have a hunch that the design lessens the amount of blood flow to the fingers more than any other keyboard, and we FPS gamers need plenty of blood flow to the fingers when not engaging in the other extra curricular activity.

After 4 years or more my logitech G19 kb does not have any wear on the keys and I am a full day user.

Same here, my G15, G19 and current G710+ have no wear and i'm using them a lot aswell.

Perhaps some people drink/eat too much crappy food and sweat acid :)

Except that you probably didn't as the glyphs are actually just the translucent plastic of the keys themselves. Pics or it didn't happen.

I've long since ditched the K90 because it was just a horrible keyboard. The worn out glyphs were the least of its problems. The keys are raised too high, the keycaps surface area is too small for my fingers, and it was terrible to type with. The glyphs on the K90 are part of the surface paint that gets worn off to expose the translucent plastic beneath, so what's left is more blue light coming through the keycaps making them stand out from the rest.

I also chucked my steelseries Merc Stealth not so long ago. It had worn off glyphs. The only gaming keyboard I kept is an MS sidewinder x4 with worn off glyphs. Don't know why. I will put that in the wheelie bin, too. Would you like to see photos before it makes a departure?

Oh, you mean comfort food. Sure. During the weekend, and I drink only straight water or tea.

I've never had a Logitech keyboard. One of those might be the way to go.

There is no paint on the glyphs. I've no idea how you managed to wear out the paint/dye on the rest of the keycap as you really have to dig at it with a knife to get through to the clear plastic. Mine are showing no wear at all after at least 2000 hours of in-game use.

As to the comfort level, the keys are no difference in size to those on most of my other keyboards. I did install O rings under the caps to soften them a bit, but I do that to all my Cherry based keyboards.

Whatever though, at least you've moved onto something you might be more happy with.
