Bad Keyboard

A while back my wife bought a keyboard.  She liked some of the features, which included many keys with specific commands for the Internet.  But, after just a few months of use the poorly painted letters on some of the keys started to fade.  Of course, as expected, this keyboard was made in China where poor quality is almost a requirement.  Once upon a time, the keyboard keys were hot stamped with the letters.  I still have a few of those devices and they still look and operate like new. Now, China cranks out these things, which have a very limited life.
