My Logitech G815 is wearing out. The letters are wearing off the keys on my second one and it is only a year old. The first was replaced as warranty. Logitech does not sell replacement key caps and won't replace the second one. Grrrrr.

I am looking at this new keyboard, the Razer Blackwidow V4 X:

It's on sale right now, so I thought I might pick one up. I don't have any experience with Razer products, though. Anybody have comments on this?

Advice is really appreciated. :-)

I have a mechanical one I have had for at least 5 years now and it's still going strong and haven't had any issues with yet. I also use one of their gaming mice which was a replacement for a Logitech gaming mouse whose switches when bad after a few months...

Well, I tried one, since the guy at the store said I could bring it back if I hated it...

That's exactly what I am going to do. It is so loud it almost shatters windows and glassware in the house.

I would like to try the version with the yellow low-noise linear switches, but it is only the one with the green switches that is on sale. Oh well. I am marking this one as solved.

I have one similar, but after having a short while, found it hard to read the lettering on the keys with the back lighting. In you pic, see left and right, center seems to be ok. Mine is in the closet. :O(
