It's not a full split, it's slightly curved. I can't ude the full split ones myself.

And p160W royal flush, if I wanted a barebones, louder then all heck, no-hotkeys, piece of junk, I'd use my absolute rock bottom backup.

I don't.

so you can just pop the old ones off thats great
im no longer worried

jeez and i was all scared
i dont have nerdishly long nails or anything but ive been clipping them like every week lately *just* for my keyboard and every time my friends or something mash onit i cringe
so now i dont have to worry anymore

and i think mine is a new one, the paint doesnt WEAR, im just saying it chipped on two keys, and it will ALWAYS chip

because i think if mine were suceptible to wear id already see soem on the home row, but none after 3mos+

actually jester this gives me a good idea
ive always considered the idea of taking all teh keys off and taking a file to all the edges so that i get an 'outline' around each key... would look AWESOME, esp since the unpolished edges would give a duller/less intense glow than the letters
but i was afraid id mess it up
but if i can just call logitech and be like "send me an enter, and a 4" and theyll give them to me im not sure i should worry, right?
you dont need to send back the old ones?

and to add to the above id probably only do the letters, not only would it save me a buttload of time, but itd look cool having only the alphabet emphasized

well maybe adding in there ; and everything on the 'interior' of the main section
because not even having home row matching would be not cool

and if they offer new numbers, why are they sending you a new one?

EDIT i think i just totally misunderstood that, by 'the numbers' do you mean the serial number? if so as soon as mine start to wear ill be getting a total replacement would be awesome
hard to say if that is better or worse than infinite key replacements
imagine the modding possibilities if you had 5 replacements for every key on the board



The serial numbers man they send you a new keyboard lol.

but it was quite expensive for a keyboard so it balances out
ill def be getting a new one when the paint wears off then

Oh [content edited] naw you did not just diss my P160W.
My keyboard is auctually much quieter than the Compaq one that had hotkeys so do your research first.
IBM isn't a piece of junk.
If I wanted to have a slightly angled keyboard, I'd bust mine in half and re solder it in the shape of a V.

I only looked at your sig. According to it, your name is "p160W royal flush"...

And really, I do not want a barebones keyboard. I specifically said what I wanted, so suggestiong one that meets none of the things I wanted, when you know it doesn't, is the same as saying "I know this is what you want, but I don't care, you need to get this." I may be low on funds, but if it is something I am going to use long term, I want something that will work for me. So I don't mind spending a little on that.

I use the Saitek Gaming keyboard, not nearly as expensive as the G-15 but has backlit keys a gaming keypad and soft, quiet keys; plus it has volume/mute controls on the keyboard, I'd highly recommend it or any decent logitech.
