Dying Printscreen key LED

So as of the last few days the printscreen LED has slowly been fading, I've put in an RMA.

Question is, Do I stick to the K65 or sell the replacement and go with another brand ? This is the 2nd Corsair RGB keyboard to fail on me within 6 month

EDIT

False alarm, I just tried blowing onto the switch itself and apparently a piece of fluff was dislodged and the LED is back to full brightness.

Would love to know how fluff gets inside actual switches especially as my place is clean AF, I'm talking a piece of dust lands and the vacuum comes out

Thanks alot. This post actually helped me. I have the k65 and it has had a dodgy light on the k key for ages. it was bugging the hell out of me (for about three months) I figured the keyboard was getting on a bit. I removed all the keys in the nearby area and gave it a hoover out with the keys off and then for good measure used some compressed air and boom its working again. I clean the keyboard regularly so didnt think it was dust
