    Does anyone uses the keyboard enhancement kit? May I ask what actually does it do? with the green rubber-like thingy. And is it worth buying? I wanted to clean my blackwidow, is it easy to pull the cap without damaging?

    Thanks in advance.

    Well I have the keyboard enhancement kit, but I found that the green rubber-ring things, while they dampen the sound produced by the keyboard, it made typing feel strange again like as well as dampening the sound they decreased the actuation force needed for each keystroke. I can say that they only slightly decreased the clicking noise from typing, so I ended up just not using them altogether. But for the second part of your question, I have found that it is very easy with the keycap remover included in the kit to take off the keycap without damaging the keyboard. But I'm pretty sure that you could by just a keycap remover from a different company for much less, because haven't found much use at all for either the green ring-thingies or for the little brush thing that came with it. I'm pretty sure that you could just use one of those pressurized cans of air to clean out the keyboard once you take off the keycaps. By the way, I'm sorry this is so long:joy:, but lastly I would say that it isn't worth the $20 unless you are really planning on keeping those green rings on.

    I really like mine. The keycap remover and brush are very convenient for cleaning and some people like using the o rings that come with it as well. Basically, the rubber O ring prevents the key from completely bottoming out, making it sound less clicky and feel slightly different. Some people like it, some don't. I use it on a few keys and not others.

  4. From what I see in the store, it has O-rings that dampen the pressing of the keycaps. It has a keycap puller to aid in safe removal of keycaps and I think it has a small brush for cleaning. If you want to dampen the sound of your keyboard, esp. if you have green, the keyboard enhancement kit is something you might wanna buy. Here's an unboxing video and a sound comparison

    I bought it, and use it, specifically for the o-rings because I don't like to bottom-out my keys when I press them, but I have a really bad habit of doing so. I already had Blackwidow Chroma Stealth, and I don't think it changed the feel of my keys at all. So, perhaps that portion only really affects the more "clicky" version of the non-stealth? I'm really happy I did it, though. I can definitely tell the difference between the keys I added the rings and they keys I didn't. (space bar, shift, tab, etc - basically the "big" keys that have those bar thingies in them)

    I have a stealth but ended up using some on my buddies regular BWU. The difference is much more noticeable on the clicky keys. On the stealth you won't notice unless you directly compare or are looking for it.
