Can you explain to me how the black switches feel?. They are linear but there is increased tension as you press down, correct? I am picturing them feeling really loose with no feedback. I am concerned about purchasing them because of people like you who bought them and didn't care for 'em. They are supposed to be the end-all for FPSs from the way some people speak. I'm not sure if I like loose keys...I think I like tension. I once removed the domes from under my old membrane keyboard and when the keys went down there was absolutely no resistance and it felt terrible! Well, I'm sure it's better than that...hehe. But can you tell me if the black was "Quicker Responding" compared to the other switches around (if you've tried them)?

I got it in black switches, then got blank keycaps and a red WASD cluster. I sort-of miss the macro keys of the BW. But it's much nicer to use in my opinion.
Also looks pretty good.
The Tenkeyless I linked to is a Leopold. Tell me, where did you find the blank key-caps for the Filco? I heard they sell the boards with them but I can't find any. The Leopold is blank but does not come in a black switch. Also, where did you find the red caps? Could I find them blank as well?
The DAS keyboard has green WASD replacement caps that are blank. I like them; they would go with my nVidia HAF-X. If only I could get them for the Filco...Edited by Deverica Wolf - 5/3/11 at 2:46pm
