Well i got my Steelseries 6GV2 a few days ago and the gaming keycaps are also faded by now, and it started on the first day... You can still see the letters properly, but you also do clearly see a big difference between the gaming caps and the rest of the keyboard. I don't mind much, as i don't tend to look at my keyboard when i type or play, but it's true that it isn't as pretty now as it was when i unpacked it.
Even with razer black widow gets dark easily. Some one posted the same issue in this forum. No big deal to me any longer… functionality is thumbs up!
wasd are also wearing out
damn it seems to be like a new record
after less then 1 hour of gaming around
i'd ask about wasd keycaps
do filco blank or wasd keycaps be match with any other mecha keyboard such as celeritas?
I finally come to accept the keys gets darker. Ill just eat a big fat greasy burger and smooth my greasy fingers all over the keys and you wont be able to see any difference, problem solved. One day you when you figure you wanna clean your keys, its like getting brand new keys, couldnt be more happy no?
It isnt that big of a deal to me any longer, bought a bottle of isopropyl 99% and it cleaned them off.
Still a great keyboard and nylon keys do feel smooth and soft regardless of how sweaty you fingers might become...
AJX I will try and see if I cant have my filco keys to fit into the board properly, the problem was that they stick out about 1mm higher than the rest. But I just lend my keyboard to a friend so he can test it so I cant come with an answer yet...
