    I just ordered a blackwidow... I was wondering if anyone made a keyboard cover for this (the silicon ones with molded keys)? I tend to wear through keys fast so it'd be nice to have one.

    would almost defeat the purpose of a black widow.

    Just check out WASDkeyboards.com if you need new keys.. they won't have the see through digits for the backlighting but they keys fit.

    How about putting a strip of cashmere over it to protect your keys? You are a touch-typist right?

    I use rubber keyboard protectors quite often and I find they don't affect the feel much.

    And yeah I'm a touch typist... I also hate how worn out keys feel. Good to know I can get new keycaps but even at $30 it's more than half the price of my BW (I got the regular version).

    You wear through keys quickly so you ordered the keyboard with the baked on textured rubber keys as opposed to the industry standard hard plastic? I'm not sure what to think about this.
