Enter key for CM Storm QFR?
« on: Mon, 05 November 2018, 02:15:44 »
I have a 97-year-old friend. Whenever I ask her to find the Enter key, she can't, because it doesn't literally say Enter. Is there any place you know of that I can buy JUST a standard ANSI key labeled "Enter", instead of an icon? A whole keyset would be too much.

Having a different colour key is also a good idea - it would stand out more.  "Press the red key", for example.
"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

I assume these guys are still in business.

One could easily be forgiven for wondering that, based on the apparent fact that only ONE model of keyboard is presently listed as being in stock. Can someone tell me what kind of stabs the QFR has, and any tips, if it happens to be Costar?

With regard to the keycap linked above, is it going to matter? If so, it doesn't say which type it's made for.

Yes!

QFR = Costar.

The keycap SpAmRaY linked to looks like one from their similarly-coloured sets.  I have a green set 9thanks SpAmRaY!) - they are thin ABS with tampo printing.  I ahve not used it enough to wear the legends off, but they probably would wear after a short period of use.

Though generally considering the shipping cost and stuff it's not very cost effective to buy just one key but otherwise this will be a good fit.
