    Mine has ALWAYS had staticky Cherry MX Blue switches, especially the “s” key from day one and now several others are doing it. one press and you get two or three letters on the screen. Maybe I got one that was built on a Friday or something, but I ditched it for a Razer Huntsman Elite.

      This should definitely not be the case, sounds like a manufacturing defect. It surely is covered by warranty, so you can return your keyboard and get a working one.
