Quite surprised by your experience. Got Rat5, cyborg v7 and tritton 720+ for years now and had no issues at all.Plus quite a few of my friends (unfortunately) bought the same or newer versions and they love em with no issues whatsoever as they would have told me since I built all their systems.

definitely not for older coders or even just typing. that return key and some of the other placements would give me an aneurism. i'll stick with cm tenkeyless/tenkey hybrid. i do like the rolly volume though

Have 5 Saitek Cyborg series devices and one MadCatz Game pad. Oldest is Cyborg 3D USB Gold. None failed me.

But I can understand mouse related frustration, while today Gaming mouse which survives 1st year is considered as good.

And I can say a lot of bad on logitech account, but saying that 40$ keyboard keys start creak after 6 months each having very different push force required and occasionally staying down due to plastic being grind is more than enough.

I've seen better performing 9$ keyboards. So there is always chance that manufacturer makes mistake in material/design choice.

Imagine supplier gives you bad batch of 10000 resistors which you use for voltage regulation. One piece per product and they will over time fail. Then you have 10000 failing devices long time after they have been all sold.

Nice keyboard but unfortunately it's not full sized, no numeric keypad.

One of the ugliest things I've seen.

Typing on this thing would be horrible, different sized keys, key placement.
