    As I understand it, they make the keys bottom-out sooner, and provide some cushion to prevent the click of plastic-on-plastic when they do bottom out.
     
  2. Will this have any impact on the Chroma Keyboards in terms of its LED brightness etc?

    Hmm, Not sure if this is something I am going to want to do then. I really like how the keyboard feels right now. Took a little bit to get use to but I love it now

    Well I'm not a so called "pro" at topics like this, but I believe they used to absorb the shock oh each click and reduces the key travel. They also reduce the noise of a mechanical keyboard. I don't know what else they are for.

    The O-Rings dampen the sound you get from "bottoming out" the key press. This is not the sound of actuating the actual key press but hitting the bottom of the switch, which then resonates with the rest of the PCB of the keyboard. This gives you a sort of a *clank* sound. The O-Rings prevent you or at least reduce the sound it makes when you bottom out.
    If you are perfect typist you will naturally should eventually learn to not bottom out but I don't think this is applicable for gamers in intense competitive situations ;)

    But i like the clicky noise D:

    does that means that reaction time in typing will be faster than the actuation point? :eek:

    I see. well maybe i'll try it when i save up. Waiting for the Nabu/Nabu X to come to Asia Pacific.

    THANKS GUYS FOR THE HELP :D
     
  8. For just a second, the noise reduction got me excited...then I realized I don't bottom out my keypresses most of the time anyway.
    Oh well, not giving up my BW anytime soon.

    Pretty cool little kit actually. It's something that I might want to give a try or at least look in to more, could also use a bit more advantage when it comes to using a keyboard. It does seem to be a universal fit though.

    I absolutely love the sound of this and would do it in a heart beat ... if I wasn't afraid of pulling my keys and damaging something. LOL

    Even with the tool to supposedly remove the keys safely, I'd be too afraid to do it myself!
    Now, if there were an option to send my keyboard in to Razer and have them do it for me, I'd 100% go for it. :D

    My razer tarantula came with these accessories(minus the o rings). Plus a few replacement keys (reload symbol, rifle, pistol, grenade symbol) I wish my black widow came with this stuff from the factory...

    I have taken apart blackwidows and other mechanical keyboards, never seen a key break.
    You do have to watch out a little for the keys with a stabilize bar in them, like <enter>, <space bar> and such.
    There are also YouTube videos that tell you how to do it, it is really easy. Trust me, anyone could do it.

    Well I guess the Stealth Version doesn't need this?

    I could see it maybe making it even quieter if you are still bottoming out the keys. The keys still have some noise to them

    Not enough deets really, (like diameter, thickness and material), pricing seems a bit odd too, I get it's Razer green, but I'm not really expecting to look at them much...

    It doesn't have to do with the type of switch, more about your skill in typing. Do you press the keys hard enough to "bottom them out". The O-Rings dampen the sound for when you hit the key and you press it all the way down to the bottom past the actuating point.
    When you land at the bottom is resonates a sound through the whole keyboard. This will dampen or even prevent it, depending on the thickness and how hard you are pressing.

    Glad this thread exists. I saw the link from the razer twitter and didn't understand what it was used for but you guys helped out a lot!

    Slightly off topic, but kind of in the realm of keyboard modding: is there ever going to be an option to change out the lights in a razer blade pro? Would love to switch mine to classic blue some time :)
