Keep your keyboard's keys from getting worn out
Authored by: tjuge on Sep 10, '13 08:31:04AM

I am a medical transcriptionst and I type at least eight hours a day, 6-7 days a week. My key letters are constantly fading away, especially the common ones. I do type by touch but would like to have the keys not fade. I have been through many keyboards, not only because of this issue but because of the wear and tear on them. I have tried the fingernail polish trick which made the keyboard last a bit longer and I experienced none of the posted problems. My worst experience was with the stickers, which for someone who types as much as I do, was a disaster. The adhesive actually began to ooze out from under the stickers and down the keys. When I complained to the company, they claimed that I must have gotten a batch that had too much adhesive applied (??) and they promptly refunded me my money. However, once applied, the sticker residue could not be removed, rendering the keyboard useless. So, I would NOT recommend the stickers to anyone. I have just purchased another keyboard, less than two months ago, and the E is starting to rub off. Any recommendations from anyone out there as to a quality keyboard that addresses this problem or if they have found a solution to preventing this in the first place?
