    Depends. I have one that is awful. They keys are too light and shiny, my fingers were forever slipping and pressing the wrong keys. I also have a Magicforce (£30) and it is awesome. I had a switch die in it (space bar) but a Cherry blue went straight in and worked perfectly. Having said that I have had it nearly two years, so that could happen to any board tbh.

    Thanks for responding VT.
    I suppose I should have added a bit more info.
    I would be after one in either black or silver and it would need to be a full size one...any further recommendations?

    The keyboard is silver, BTW. It just has a white underbelly. Any way, that is the full sized version of it there. The thing is it uses Gateron switches. However, I can definitely vouch for the body strength and the stock keys. I changed mine, but they were perfect. Nice weight to them and no slipping.

    Seems that a lot of you guys are well experienced in working on mechanical keyboards.
    I'm going to be giving away a km780 RGB cherry MX browns and you might be interested/able to help repair this thing.
    Head to the marketplace for details. pm me if you can assist. Otherwise if interested just register interest in the thread in the marketplace.

    I knocked over a can of diet cola into mine yesterday. Only went over about four keys. Dried it as best I could, soldiered on. Realised there was cola stains on the keys (about four) so I just took them off an washed them with isoprop. This board has taken a proper battering tbh.

    It really annoys me that I can't do the rest, and also that I lost 1 key for my Pok3r when coming back from the US! I will have to order 1 damn key with the next order of keycaps :D

    Has anyone tried the delightfully name Royal Kludge wireless mech board? How was it for you? It seems very cheap at £37inc

    They are ergodox infinity with "fullhand" add ons... I am not sure about the full hands still, I might find something else for them, but they're so expensive -.-
