Customer Reviews

Excellent build quality.I use this for everything - work, gaming, transcribing, etc. I went from black switches to reds, which takes a bit of adjustment, but the build quality is excellent and the feel of the keyboard is amazing. I like the lettering on the side. It's a good middle ground between the Das Ultimate I had and a gimmicky RGB keyboard.If you're looking for a very high quality, no-nonsense keyboard I would definitely recommend. I'd put it more on the professional side of keyboards, but have had no issue gaming with it. If you're used to harder switches, there'll likely be a period where you double tap keys (if you're using reds), but that goes away.My typing speed has stayed within 5% (per Typeracer). Within the first week, I was slightly ahead of my previous speed and expect incremental improvements. That said, it's more about the feel and enjoyment than performance if you're already using a high quality mechanical keyboard.If you've never used a mechanical keyboard, I recommend you go to a Best Buy or similar and try out a few different switches on the display keyboards to see what feels best.5Feels great, really sturdy.It's been over a year since I ordered it, and it's still clacking away. I've had to clean the switches a few times with a straw of 99% isopropyl, because of dropping food in like a moron, but all the keys still feel great.This wasn't my first mechanical keyboard, I had 2 RK9000s before this which broke because the port fell off. This Filco majestouch-2 is much sturdier, and hasn't broken yet despite quite a few accidental hard tugs on the cord. I've even spilled water on it a few times, and so far, I've been lucky enough to still have a keyboard.My only concern when buying this is that outside of the 30 day window for Amazon, it doesn't seem like Filco has an english tech support line. So if something goes wrong within that first year when you would normally have a 1 yr warranty, you won't be able to resolve it. It looks like Amazon offers a 2 year warranty for $9; I would consider it.5Beautiful, fluid keyboard I just got one of these gorgeous keyboards this week. This is my first Filco, and it is replacing a Razer BlackWidow Ultimate with Cherry MX Blues that I have had for about two years.I'm a programmer, and I'm on my computer and typing frenetically pretty much all of the time. After several years of using "clacky" mechanicals, I was a little hesitant to get the non-tacticle, lighter action of the red switches. That turned out to be a misplaced concern.Most people who make a similar transition say that there is a period where there accuracy goes down, but for me, my accuracy and speed went up almost on the spot. I've heard people say that the Majestouch 2 soft linear is "like typing on water", which is surely an exaggeration, but not much of one. It really is the smoothest and fastest keyboard I've used. However, if you have an especially heavy typing style, you may need to adjust to the lighter action, since otherwise you will bottom out on every stroke and that would defeat the benefit of the reds.It's worth pointing out that although this keyboard isn't completely silent, if you make an effort not to bottom out, it is much, much quieter than Brown or Blue switches will ever be. If you are considering a Brown-based "Stealth" keyboard primarily for the noise reduction over blues, I would recommend going for the reds instead, especially if you don't jackhammer the keys.On to the keyboard itself. This board is the "Ninja" variation, with the front-facing key labels. The reason for doing this is to reduce wear on the labels, especially for ABS caps like this keyboard has. But the Blackwidow this is replacing also had ABS Caps, although because it is backlit, the labels are not printed, and so cannot be worn off. My Blackwidow's caps themselves are also still in great shape after two years of daily use. Whether or not this keyboard will wear as well remains to be seen. My general impression is that the caps are not as high quality as those on the BlackWidow, but many mechanical buyers will get a set of custom PBT caps anyway.It's very nice having a no-frills keyboard with a base that snugs right up against the keys again. On the Blackwidow, I lost count of the number of times I hit the lowest macro key instead of left CTRL when I first got it. Macro and media keys strike me as, well, bad, and I'm very happy to be rid of them. Now the backlight, on the other hand, I was sure I'd miss, mostly for sporadic use at night when I'm not typing long enough for touch typing to matter. But it doesn't seem to matter even then. So I would say even if you're used to a backlight, you may find that you won't miss it.The "Ninja" layout may have a gimmicky name, but in person, it's actually quite handsome. It makes you wonder why this hasn't been a standard layout all along. Under normal lighting conditions, it may even be more legible than the standard layout, while also looking less cluttered. I would probably recommend this over the standard layout.The keyboard has a nice heft, and build quality seems very high. The Backspace key squeaks a little bit if not pressed in the dead center (possibly a variant of the Filco "ping" issue?), but other than that, there is no wobble or grit or noise or any problem with the action anywhere.I believe this keyboard uses Filco stabilizers for large keys, and Cherry stabilizers for everything else. This is in contrast to certain Coolermaster mechanicals, which use very highly regarded Costar stabilizers, and the Blackwidow, which I believe uses iOne stabilizers. The Blackwidow developed a well-known "double or nothing" problem on certain keys, which I have read can be attributed to their choice of stabilizer. I wouldn't know anything about all that, but hopefully the Filco stabilizers won't have that same problem.Overall, I'm extremely happy with this keyboard. Giddy, actually. I'm sometimes motivated to code something just because it'd be fun to type, as weird as that may be, and this keyboard triggers that effect on a daily basis. If you're only used to blues, give this a try! If you've never had a mechanical before, definitely give this a try! Given how important your keyboard is, the cost is basically nothing. I see a lot of people complaining about the price of Filcos over other mechanicals, but relistically you're looking at a difference of $50 at most, amortized over a couple years. Just get the Filco. 5WOWI type daily and have been through so, so many keyboards. After burning through my last logitech, I finally decided to treat myself to a nice mechanical keyboard. I hadn't heard of this company till I did some pre-purchase research and I'm glad I found them. This thing is solid. I swear this thing almost anticipates my key strokes it's so effortless. I love the key feel. I used to laugh at people for saying that kind of thing, but wow does it feel good. For a mechanical keyboard it isn't noisy. I love the clean look of the print not on the key face, but for the occasional times you need to reference the keys, they are actually very visible and easy to read on the side. In fact I think it works better than the traditional layout and allows me to clean it better without my keys fading. I love this thing so much. The company packages this thing so carefully and even sent an folded crane with it. A new regular customer.5A solid make that nails the essentials.I bought the cherry mx brown switch keyboard for work as my random membrane keyboard wasn't really cutting it anymore and causing excess fatigue in my fingers. This keyboard has an excellent build quality. It has a good heft, is incredibly solid, and doesn't squirm when typing on it. This keyboard nails the basics very well. It has a great (standard) layout and is comfortable to type on all day. Having the letters on the front of the keycaps may seem like it may be bad, but in person I can easily read the keys if I need to, and having plain top keycaps makes it easier to clean and there is no worry about the print wearing off.The primary pros for this keyboard are its build quality, heft, quality switches, and that it nails being a no bs keyboard very well. It offers a great solid typing experience.The primary cons are as follows. There aren't really any frills to this keyboard. There is no software to download, no backlight, no macros etc. This works against the keyboard for use with gaming. Also, for the price tag, one might expect a braided cable.A note worth mentioning as well that even though mine is a brown switch keyboard, one can make a decent amount of noise if you are really bottoming out (I believe this is due to the backplate). This keyboard can really be great to mash on, just a note as the expectation with browns is that they are quieter.Overall, especially for the price, this keyboard offers excellent build quality, a great look, and absolutely no bs. It provides an awesome typing experience. If you need a straight solid keyboard for work I highly recommend this keyboard.5Best typing experience I have in awhile. Dont let the lack of features deter you. The Majestouch-2 is a masterpiece!I am somewhat of a keyboard collector. And I am, to a fault, always looking for another mechanical keyboard experience. The keyboard I have in front of me now is the subject of this review which will undoubtedly be the highlight of my day.First impressions are WOW. Aesthetics are clean, sleek, and professional. The board will turn heads because of how clean and simple it is in a market over taken by the flashy and over the top keyboards. The thin bezels, front printed keycaps, the simple LED's and the modest branding on the board all come together to fit a full sized keyboard into the smallest and most attractive package possible.Construction:The board is built better than a tank. Despite being composed of all plastic, it feels like your holding a a large piece of mahogany wood in your hands. Dense and hefty without feeling hollow inside. The key caps are super nice. I think they are made from PBT but if it's ABS then its the nicest ABS I have ever touched. Thick and sturdy with no welding marks or loose dangling chips. Just amazing. The cable is a nice sturdy plastic sleeved wire that is attached to the board. Despite what popular reviewers say, braided cables are overatted and I don't consider it a pro when reviewing a board. There are flip out feet that have rubber on them as well which is a huge bonus. I don't know why more keyboard don't put rubber on the flip out stands.Typing experience/Switches:Since I have like 7 other MX Blue switch keyboards I figured I would get my first MX Brown board with this Filco. It feels amazing. The experience is truly one of a kind I believe. So good that I am tempted to get ANOTHER Filco with Blue switches. However I do think the brown switches are perfect for this board in particular. They don't make a sound. Because of the dense construction, an aggressive key press comes out feeling responsive and tactile and the sound is very low pitched and has a lot of "bass". With the "ninja" key caps it really is a stealthy experience that is pretty addicting. I much prefer MX blues over any of the MX switch line up but honestly I am addicted to typing on this thing. I just love it. The strokes feel so natural and light and despite it feeling like im pecking away at nothing, the sound is so deep and rich. I really can't say enough good things about it.Features:This board comes with practically no features. And while that is a bit of a disappointment coming from some other feature rich boards like Das and the likes, I really don't mind as this boards objective is to be compact and clean. Which it does better than any other board. This is a board you could take into any professional or casual environment and feel comfortable and proud using without feeling like you're missing out on something.Final thoughts:Diatec isn't a company that's been reinventing the wheel every year to keep up with consumer demands. They have a formula and are sticking to it. The Majestouch-2 is a masterpiece. It's clean and functional and more importantly the typing experience is wonderful. The only feature I am wishing I had was a detachable USB cable. Other than that I hope this keyboard never changes and they keep making more. If you are a keyboard enthusiast like me or are looking for your first mechanical keyboard, just get this. Get this and don't feel like you're missing out because you don't have dedicated media keys or macros or back lighting or a USB hub. Once you type on this thing, none of those features will be worth it on other boards.Personal modifications:While the keycaps are nice I went ahead and ordered a set of really think PBT caps for it and I have no doubt it will take the experience to a level I have yet to reach in my hunt for a good typing experience. I will update this review when I get those.5Pretty sweetThis is my second mech. keyboard and I love it. Price was pretty steep at 159.99 but in all it was worth it. A little about msyelf: I'm a gamer, I have a gaming PC i built myself, I'm also a college student studying in computer information systems, and I'm an average review writer. I'm going to write this review in three categories; the keyboard itself, the cherry mx keys, and the company.The Keyboard itself: (What came in the box, a honest review).The keyboard is sturdy, and actually worked when I plugged it in and hasn't stopped working since day one. Inside the box you will find a key removal key, the keyboard, and some documentation. It is a breeze to type on and the printed letters of the keys are out of harms way (your fingers) so you can't smudge them away.Cherry MX Blacks:If you are a heavy handed typist like myself then these are for you. Blacks are a lot quieter than blues or even red's in my opinion. I had a keyboard that had red keys and I can say I wasn't happy for many reasons. One reason is if you play starcraft 2. One misclick is the difference between winning and losing most of the time and with the reds it was way too easy to do that. At least the blacks you need to press harder for the key to register.Filco:Filco, you have done a great job with this keyboard. I plan to use it until it breaks which hopefully won't be anytime soon. As I said above the price is a little steep, but if you want quality this is it. Filco needs to keep the PNP (plug n play) strategy going. It's what got me to purchase this keyboard. Before I bought this, ,I bought a Cooler Master Storm Trigger, (red keys), the software was buggy and the keyboard had problems right from the start. Bottom line Filco no software please. Keep it simple.5the best keyboard ever made for office use and day-to-day programmingAfter several years of owning and loving a couple Filco Ninja Majestouch-2 keyboards with red switches, I decided to try the browns. Out of the box, this keyboard with browns is, in my opinion, the best keyboard ever made for office use and day-to-day programming.I've gone through a lot of alternatives to Filco keyboards for gaming and programming, and while I suppose it would be helpful to point out specific differences for people who are interested enough in them to be reading about this relatively niche and expensive product, I actually don't want to say or imply anything particularly negative about the other excellent keyboards I have tried. Instead I will just say that even when a keyboard obviously has a comparable build quality, or you are told it uses the same physical board inside the housing, or it has a luxurious feel on first use, the Filco handily wins for comfort and speed in extended use in every case in my experience. I don't know if it's the unusual inverted dome shape of the keys, or the freedom they have to use a single, uncomplicated plastic for the cap since there is no sandwiching or printing or layering to worry about, or just alchemy, but in any event Filco simply makes the best keyboards I can find.I have found it helpful on my Filco keyboards to get some red WASD o-rings (Cherry MX Rubber O-Ring Switch Dampeners Red 40A-L - 0.2mm Reduction (125pcs)) for specific keys. I put them under all of the "big" keys (space, shifts, enter, backspace, and backslash and tab for gaming) and optionally the arrow keys. I find these almost more useful for work than gaming. There is often a bit of squeak at the end of the travel on the keys with the metal bars under them (which DeoxIT fixes as well) and also a resonant, hollow sound when you bottom out, and the o-rings eliminate both. I think the normal keys are better off without them, but something that you might hammer or use very repetitively may benefit from the rings.So after some years and an embarrassing amount of money spent on these things, I'd say this is my favorite mechanical keyboard out there, in this specific configuration. Of course that's an unhelpfully personal assertion but if you like the feel of Filcos or are looking for a sturdy and professional keyboard with brown switches, I think this is the way to go.5Kickin' KeyboardI am currently enrolled in a Braille transcription course. When transcribing Braille on a computer, n-key rollover is required which means that I must be able to strike the f d s j k l keys simultaneously in order to key in the combinations of six dots required for Braille. At present I own two laptop computers. One does not have n-key rollover (it's a netbook). The second does have n-key rollover but the laptop keyboard is really not designed for hours of use, and I end up with fatigued hands and also with stray characters when my arms are too tired to hold my wrists up and out of the way.Enter Amazon, and I began checking out keyboards with n-key rollover. This one, the Filco Ninja Majestouch-2 NKR, Soft Linear Action Keyboard had wonderful ratings all around and sounded exactly like what I needed for lengthy transcription sessions as well as the simultaneous key strikes. I ordered it with my Amazon Prime and received it in two days. Although it was more costly than I had hoped, this keyboard is everything that the reviews say and more. The touch is more mechanical than other keyboards, especially the laptop ones. I love the feel of it, more like a typewriter feel and you can literally wiz through typing. It's fast, with no lags or discomfort, the n-key rollover is perfect for Braille (or gaming or whatever you need it for), it also has the numeric keyboard on the side which I wasn't sure I needed but went for anyway. The key symbols are printer on the front rather than the top of the keys to avoid wear-offs over time, and the keyboard comes with a tool to change out the Microsoft keys as well as the replacement keys themselves.The keyboard was easy to connect (simply plug in the USB to your laptop and it is ready to go), has a solid feel, and the black has an unobtrusive look. It fits well on my desk's keyboard tray and stays put. Some reviews stated that there is a squeaky backspace key. I have not experienced any squeaky keys on this keyboard. The shipping was perfect as well.All in all, this keyboard is a fine one for someone who needs a higher end model with n-key rollover. It's well worth the money not to have that hand fatigue and discomfort that I had before. For some people, using this may require a bit of adjustment time as stated in some other reviews, but I honestly didn't experience that.5IncredibleThis is the first mechanical keyboard I've ever had. After a bunch of research, I decided on this Filco Majestouch with the cherry mx browns.Pros:-Absolutely quality build: feels so like its durable enough to get a lifetime of use out of it-The whole thing about mechanicals: the keys' feedback. After using this, my Apple Magic keyboard at work feels bad, and my old LG keyboard feels horrible with the long, mesh strokes-Packaged for shipping superbly-Comes with an origami figure + noteCons:-I'm totally used to it now, but I did expect the browns to be a bit more quiet than they are (No fault of Filco's)-It can only connect with the built in usb 2.0; No bluetooth-I do miss having media controls on the keyboard (play/pause/next/prev/volume up/down)-Lights on the board would be cool, but no biggie5Clean design, compact, heavy,and the best key action I have ever felt.Not a gamer, but I wanted a keyboard with some "feel." when I type quickly I often leaving our letters, doubling up letters, or failing to capitalize letters, all when I was sure I had hit the correct key.I was looking for a keyboard with a positive feel but not excessive key effort. This is it!.Keys move with a clean and move with a clean and smooth motion to a positive stop producing an audible click as they hit their seat. the click can be a bit loud but since I'm using it in my home office I'm not disturbing people. At home writing fiction, commentary, or political screeds my fingers fly over this keyboard.Be aware that this keyboard does not have letters/numbers on the top of the keys, but on the side facing the typist. I would only recommend if you touch type. There are other Filco versions with the traditional markings.Typing here at work during my lunchbreak the difference is painfully obvious. My workstation here has a nice enough Lenovo keyboard but just typing this review I have gone back numerous times to correce missed letters and CAPS. I might just have to buy another Filco for work. maybe if I sweet-talk IT...5

Dont let the lack of features deter you. The Majestouch-2 is a masterpiece!I am somewhat of a keyboard collector. And I am, to a fault, always looking for another mechanical keyboard experience. The keyboard I have in front of me now is the subject of this review which will undoubtedly be the highlight of my day.First impressions are WOW. Aesthetics are clean, sleek, and professional. The board will turn heads because of how clean and simple it is in a market over taken by the flashy and over the top keyboards. The thin bezels, front printed keycaps, the simple LED's and the modest branding on the board all come together to fit a full sized keyboard into the smallest and most attractive package possible.Construction:The board is built better than a tank. Despite being composed of all plastic, it feels like your holding a a large piece of mahogany wood in your hands. Dense and hefty without feeling hollow inside. The key caps are super nice. I think they are made from PBT but if it's ABS then its the nicest ABS I have ever touched. Thick and sturdy with no welding marks or loose dangling chips. Just amazing. The cable is a nice sturdy plastic sleeved wire that is attached to the board. Despite what popular reviewers say, braided cables are overatted and I don't consider it a pro when reviewing a board. There are flip out feet that have rubber on them as well which is a huge bonus. I don't know why more keyboard don't put rubber on the flip out stands.Typing experience/Switches:Since I have like 7 other MX Blue switch keyboards I figured I would get my first MX Brown board with this Filco. It feels amazing. The experience is truly one of a kind I believe. So good that I am tempted to get ANOTHER Filco with Blue switches. However I do think the brown switches are perfect for this board in particular. They don't make a sound. Because of the dense construction, an aggressive key press comes out feeling responsive and tactile and the sound is very low pitched and has a lot of "bass". With the "ninja" key caps it really is a stealthy experience that is pretty addicting. I much prefer MX blues over any of the MX switch line up but honestly I am addicted to typing on this thing. I just love it. The strokes feel so natural and light and despite it feeling like im pecking away at nothing, the sound is so deep and rich. I really can't say enough good things about it.Features:This board comes with practically no features. And while that is a bit of a disappointment coming from some other feature rich boards like Das and the likes, I really don't mind as this boards objective is to be compact and clean. Which it does better than any other board. This is a board you could take into any professional or casual environment and feel comfortable and proud using without feeling like you're missing out on something.Final thoughts:Diatec isn't a company that's been reinventing the wheel every year to keep up with consumer demands. They have a formula and are sticking to it. The Majestouch-2 is a masterpiece. It's clean and functional and more importantly the typing experience is wonderful. The only feature I am wishing I had was a detachable USB cable. Other than that I hope this keyboard never changes and they keep making more. If you are a keyboard enthusiast like me or are looking for your first mechanical keyboard, just get this. Get this and don't feel like you're missing out because you don't have dedicated media keys or macros or back lighting or a USB hub. Once you type on this thing, none of those features will be worth it on other boards.Personal modifications:While the keycaps are nice I went ahead and ordered a set of really think PBT caps for it and I have no doubt it will take the experience to a level I have yet to reach in my hunt for a good typing experience. I will update this review when I get those.5Pretty sweetThis is my second mech. keyboard and I love it. Price was pretty steep at 159.99 but in all it was worth it. A little about msyelf: I'm a gamer, I have a gaming PC i built myself, I'm also a college student studying in computer information systems, and I'm an average review writer. I'm going to write this review in three categories; the keyboard itself, the cherry mx keys, and the company.The Keyboard itself: (What came in the box, a honest review).The keyboard is sturdy, and actually worked when I plugged it in and hasn't stopped working since day one. Inside the box you will find a key removal key, the keyboard, and some documentation. It is a breeze to type on and the printed letters of the keys are out of harms way (your fingers) so you can't smudge them away.Cherry MX Blacks:If you are a heavy handed typist like myself then these are for you. Blacks are a lot quieter than blues or even red's in my opinion. I had a keyboard that had red keys and I can say I wasn't happy for many reasons. One reason is if you play starcraft 2. One misclick is the difference between winning and losing most of the time and with the reds it was way too easy to do that. At least the blacks you need to press harder for the key to register.Filco:Filco, you have done a great job with this keyboard. I plan to use it until it breaks which hopefully won't be anytime soon. As I said above the price is a little steep, but if you want quality this is it. Filco needs to keep the PNP (plug n play) strategy going. It's what got me to purchase this keyboard. Before I bought this, ,I bought a Cooler Master Storm Trigger, (red keys), the software was buggy and the keyboard had problems right from the start. Bottom line Filco no software please. Keep it simple.5the best keyboard ever made for office use and day-to-day programmingAfter several years of owning and loving a couple Filco Ninja Majestouch-2 keyboards with red switches, I decided to try the browns. Out of the box, this keyboard with browns is, in my opinion, the best keyboard ever made for office use and day-to-day programming.I've gone through a lot of alternatives to Filco keyboards for gaming and programming, and while I suppose it would be helpful to point out specific differences for people who are interested enough in them to be reading about this relatively niche and expensive product, I actually don't want to say or imply anything particularly negative about the other excellent keyboards I have tried. Instead I will just say that even when a keyboard obviously has a comparable build quality, or you are told it uses the same physical board inside the housing, or it has a luxurious feel on first use, the Filco handily wins for comfort and speed in extended use in every case in my experience. I don't know if it's the unusual inverted dome shape of the keys, or the freedom they have to use a single, uncomplicated plastic for the cap since there is no sandwiching or printing or layering to worry about, or just alchemy, but in any event Filco simply makes the best keyboards I can find.I have found it helpful on my Filco keyboards to get some red WASD o-rings (Cherry MX Rubber O-Ring Switch Dampeners Red 40A-L - 0.2mm Reduction (125pcs)) for specific keys. I put them under all of the "big" keys (space, shifts, enter, backspace, and backslash and tab for gaming) and optionally the arrow keys. I find these almost more useful for work than gaming. There is often a bit of squeak at the end of the travel on the keys with the metal bars under them (which DeoxIT fixes as well) and also a resonant, hollow sound when you bottom out, and the o-rings eliminate both. I think the normal keys are better off without them, but something that you might hammer or use very repetitively may benefit from the rings.So after some years and an embarrassing amount of money spent on these things, I'd say this is my favorite mechanical keyboard out there, in this specific configuration. Of course that's an unhelpfully personal assertion but if you like the feel of Filcos or are looking for a sturdy and professional keyboard with brown switches, I think this is the way to go.5Kickin' KeyboardI am currently enrolled in a Braille transcription course. When transcribing Braille on a computer, n-key rollover is required which means that I must be able to strike the f d s j k l keys simultaneously in order to key in the combinations of six dots required for Braille. At present I own two laptop computers. One does not have n-key rollover (it's a netbook). The second does have n-key rollover but the laptop keyboard is really not designed for hours of use, and I end up with fatigued hands and also with stray characters when my arms are too tired to hold my wrists up and out of the way.Enter Amazon, and I began checking out keyboards with n-key rollover. This one, the Filco Ninja Majestouch-2 NKR, Soft Linear Action Keyboard had wonderful ratings all around and sounded exactly like what I needed for lengthy transcription sessions as well as the simultaneous key strikes. I ordered it with my Amazon Prime and received it in two days. Although it was more costly than I had hoped, this keyboard is everything that the reviews say and more. The touch is more mechanical than other keyboards, especially the laptop ones. I love the feel of it, more like a typewriter feel and you can literally wiz through typing. It's fast, with no lags or discomfort, the n-key rollover is perfect for Braille (or gaming or whatever you need it for), it also has the numeric keyboard on the side which I wasn't sure I needed but went for anyway. The key symbols are printer on the front rather than the top of the keys to avoid wear-offs over time, and the keyboard comes with a tool to change out the Microsoft keys as well as the replacement keys themselves.The keyboard was easy to connect (simply plug in the USB to your laptop and it is ready to go), has a solid feel, and the black has an unobtrusive look. It fits well on my desk's keyboard tray and stays put. Some reviews stated that there is a squeaky backspace key. I have not experienced any squeaky keys on this keyboard. The shipping was perfect as well.All in all, this keyboard is a fine one for someone who needs a higher end model with n-key rollover. It's well worth the money not to have that hand fatigue and discomfort that I had before. For some people, using this may require a bit of adjustment time as stated in some other reviews, but I honestly didn't experience that.5IncredibleThis is the first mechanical keyboard I've ever had. After a bunch of research, I decided on this Filco Majestouch with the cherry mx browns.Pros:-Absolutely quality build: feels so like its durable enough to get a lifetime of use out of it-The whole thing about mechanicals: the keys' feedback. After using this, my Apple Magic keyboard at work feels bad, and my old LG keyboard feels horrible with the long, mesh strokes-Packaged for shipping superbly-Comes with an origami figure + noteCons:-I'm totally used to it now, but I did expect the browns to be a bit more quiet than they are (No fault of Filco's)-It can only connect with the built in usb 2.0; No bluetooth-I do miss having media controls on the keyboard (play/pause/next/prev/volume up/down)-Lights on the board would be cool, but no biggie5Clean design, compact, heavy,and the best key action I have ever felt.Not a gamer, but I wanted a keyboard with some "feel." when I type quickly I often leaving our letters, doubling up letters, or failing to capitalize letters, all when I was sure I had hit the correct key.I was looking for a keyboard with a positive feel but not excessive key effort. This is it!.Keys move with a clean and move with a clean and smooth motion to a positive stop producing an audible click as they hit their seat. the click can be a bit loud but since I'm using it in my home office I'm not disturbing people. At home writing fiction, commentary, or political screeds my fingers fly over this keyboard.Be aware that this keyboard does not have letters/numbers on the top of the keys, but on the side facing the typist. I would only recommend if you touch type. There are other Filco versions with the traditional markings.Typing here at work during my lunchbreak the difference is painfully obvious. My workstation here has a nice enough Lenovo keyboard but just typing this review I have gone back numerous times to correce missed letters and CAPS. I might just have to buy another Filco for work. maybe if I sweet-talk IT...5
