Well, i just sent xoxide.com an e-mail asking a replacement for that Tarantula keyboard :( It seems that some keys on that keyboard are acting weird! Some keys would just require me to press them extremely hard to actually type the letter\number. Some other keys would just type double! I press the key one time and it puts up 2 letters\numbers?!

For 100$ a keyboarrd, i (See, 2 r and i pressed it once...) am EXPECTING nothing less than perfection. That is really pissing me off tho. At first, i was making a lot of errors typing on that nice new keyboard and i thought it was just because i had to get used... But then i just noticed those problems and then i tried all keys one by one... Which is how i found those problems.

This is really sad. Now it's up to xoxide.com to get me a replacement quick! I guess that'll test their customer service and RMA department!

Did you try first to change the keyboard settings, regarding lenght of key stroke? I know it won't fix the fact that you have to press rrrreally hard on some keys, but it's worth a shot.

edit: damn, can't find the setting anywhere! I know it's somewhere.
edit2: can you believe that it's not installed on my lappy? I can find the Keyboard properties on all my rigs, bu not the lappy. Go figure. Vive Dell!

Quick update : I have placed an order @ Jab-Tech for a PA120.2 ... The damn sucker was out of stock @ NCIX.com and i can't wait for it to be back in stock. It has been back-ordered @ NCIX.com for my order so i am asking for refund. The rest of my second order from NCIX.com is already shipped :p:

Lil update guys!

NCIX.com will refund my back-ordered PA120.2 and i have ordered one from Jab-Tech and it's already shipped!

Also, my Dell 24" has been shipped!

And more stuff (Second NCIX.com order) arrived today but no one was home, so tomorrow i'll try to make them come back since their "contoir" is pretty damn far from here...

And for the bad news, Xoxide.com don't want to open the keyboard package of the new one they'll send me for the one im about to RMA to them. They say because all package comes factory sealed and blah-blah-blah... WTF! It ain't complicated and i just want to make sure i don't end up with the new keyboard with the same problems!

Big problem guys...

EVGA 680I A1 SLI problems
