    I actually bought this exact keyboard, but the store sent me the wrong keyboard, and by the time it got returned they had none in stock and said they weren't getting more stock so i got a refund :(

    Maybe ill be lucky and win this one and finally get the keyboard i wanted lol

    One of most sexiest keyboard along with Asus ROG Claymore. But, i guess, English only?

    I'm raising this from the dead... in the dark, with my cheap spare lightless USB keyboard, cos my KM780 RGB died this morning! :(
    The cable had enough where it enters the keyboard, too much twisting, but I use it from my sofa so it undoubtedly suffers a bit more wear and tear.
    It had a minor issue for a few months but today it said nada.
    It lasted over 5 years of cable abuse though, not bad.

    Its been a really great keyboard, the only downside, how gaddam loud it is! (crazy loud with brown switches)
    I'll keep it as a repair project but for now want to try something new.

    I bought one with hall effect switches (magnetic) and adjustable keypress register height, the Apex Pro.
    Its apparently very quiet, I wont be able to tell if my second personality is off on one now ;)
    It'll be compared to the Corsair K100 OPX, my second PC owns this.

    ps I wasnt the winner of the KM780 competition, this is as close to a dedicated thread for the KM780 as we have here. (edit: oops, spotted there is an real thread for this k/b earlier, my bad)
    Posted as an fyi for keyboard abuse cases and a shout out for how good it has been, even though it can wake the dead!

    Is it just the usb wire that died? if so you can easily switch it out for another usb wire, they are all the same inside... I've done the same with my G9 mouse wire.

    Yep thats why its in the repair bin, it will get seen to then passed on to someone less fortunate, but who keeps the cable still!
    I plan on shortening the cable to cut out the bad section.
