    Hi everybody. I am a habitual reader of this thread but although now I had no registered, thanks to everyone for so much information available...

    So, my question is: anyone knows if there is any option to buy an entire keyboard replacement? I have a Recoil II from PCS and some of my key switches are broken because an accident and PCS tells me that they only send keys as replacement, no the keyboard so I am looking for any other seller who can sell me the entire keyboard. Any idea? I asked Illegear about their new "brown switch" option and I am waiting for the response...

    @lKinder_Bueno Do you have a link to PCS Bios ? I have ordered mine on a Frech site names pcw.fr and I would like to update Bios/EC.

    Also, where can I have instructions to flash EC and Bios ?

    Thanks for the explanation, I’ve switched back to the previous gaming center I had because fits better my needs.

    About the bios is there any possibility to change the boot logo? It’s not an important thing, just aesthetic, but I don’t like the mechrevo’s booting logo so much.

    The brown keyboard is so much better than the default blues. With the blue the keys were shaky and sometimes inputs are registered even without pressing to the point where the blue click triggers, but now I no longer have any of those issues. Overall quality and feel is a huge improvement and feedback is solid. Also I no longer have to be paranoid about my heavy typing when in public.
