Left Alt malfunctioning
« on: Fri, 28 December 2012, 18:41:19 »
Many people have reported that a certain batch of QFRs have a malfunctioning left alt. My QFR's left alt works when used alone however when used in conjunction with tab or ctrl+del it does not work. Is CM offering RMAs for malfunctioning keyboards and/or is there a quick fix that can be performed?

"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Someone created a guide to fixing the solder point (which is the root of the issue)...

It's only small batch but still a priority for us to deal with.
