    I was kind of reluctant to start a different thread so I will add my problem here. So far my D-Pad has been functioning, thou I don't really use it, but still the "clicking" sound has become "muted" so I am expecting it to fail soon...from what I 've been reading.

    I have however a more "pressing" issue...my number 18 button never properly worked and my number 14 button just yesterday failed to "follow" command. The backlight works perfectly, but the keyboard doesn't send the command when these buttons are pressed.

    Has anyone else had this issue?

    I haven't had any issues with the actual mechanical key switches failing. But, that is most likely because the d-pad microswitches are failing way faster and I'm on my 4th device now, so key switches are fairly fresh. For reference, I use the d-pad as movement, aka w,a,s,d, so they are in constant use with long-presses, like holding 'w' to run, etc.

    Much appreciate the fast reply. I will take it out to service from the store I purchased it and see what comes up. I hope I won't be in for surprises. Thanks again

    If you are having an issue like all of use, possibly the best thing you can do is start a new thread and "flood" the forums with the issue. 1 thread is not a good metric, compared to 10.

    Same problem here... My tartarus broke few minutes ago, meanwhile a match. I'm a little pissed because i bought it just few month ago... I played with G13 more than 10 years without problems... I am very disapointed by Razer products so far. my mice broke fast too. If they would cost 10 € it doesn't matter but they don't....
