They're not transfers, they're hot printed.

They all wear, maybe cheap ones wear fastest!.

The only keytops that don't wear are "two-shot moulded" - far too expensive a process theses days.

The letter is moulded in relief first - then the outer skin moulded around it - the letter goes right through like a stick of rock.

Strange..... This generic keyboard that's been in use for six and a half years shows no signs of wear or fading.

I've got a Lidl Silvercrest wireless mouse and keyboard (re-badged A4Tech products) which I bought about three years ago.

The keyboard (black symbols on white keys) is used for many hours a day, but none of the symbols show any sign of wear...:-)

Your keyboard letters will wear off if you keep your nails a tad long.

I'm using a Microsoft Digital Pro Keyboard, this is the third computer I've used it on.

Sorry - the keys are fine.
