I got mine from http://www.keyboardco.com/ and under "filco accessories"

I think the have an amazon store for US customers. Any MX cherry keycap should work with any MX cherry board.

I have a Filco Tenkeyless with MX Cherry Blue's. It's great for typing and great for gaming too. I am in love.

I have 2 Filco browns, Leo Brown, Ducky Blues and a PLU Black cherry switches. Out of em all, the Blues are my for typing and FPS gaming, and the blacks are my least fav.


Click clack > tactile > linear IMHO

Haven't tried the Reds and have no desire since I like the click clack.

So, would these be able to fit on a Filco Tenkeyless?

Theoretically yeah. But they might be lower or higher than the keys that come with the filco. So it may look and feel strange.

Hmmmmm...maybe I could just get blank key-caps and spray the WASD keys green myself...I now that's not a reason to pick a keyboard but I'm just saying, those greens go with my case! Sadly, DAS don't make black switches...and Filco and Leopold are better anywho.

I'm very busy at the moment. My PC parts are coming in from Newegg daily. I haven't made a decision but I would like a Tenkeyless with blank keys. I know that, at least.

I'm now thinking about just going for the blacks since most pros use them. I'm just concerned about using them on Starcraft 2 and other RTSs game though I've heard some people can use then successfully with RTSs. The major problem being the lack of click to know when the key has registered. Maybe I should get a black now and if it's no good for everything get a brown later. I guess I could cough up the moolah if it's worth it. I shall see down the road.

Everyday I am coming closer to a descision.

...And then, I gotta pick a claw-grip mouse.

Deverica Wolf, I have a Steelseries 6Gv2 and have had no problems with the keys falling off (though I don't doubt that has happened), and the Cherry MX Black switches do not feel loose in any way. I like them because I can really feel the resistance of the switch as I press down on it. The stiffness and linearity also make it easier to keep a key pressed partially (just before the activation point), so that you don't have to press as much for the action to register. Plus once you get used to the feel of the switches you can press them without bottoming-out, which makes them feel even more responsive. As for people who say their hands "get tired" with black switches, I wouldn't take the opinion of babies seriously.

But try and test out some switches before making a decision (or order from somewhere with a good return policy), since how good a keyboard feels is really up to personal preference.

This one : CM Spawn

I would like a review of it as it has been tempting me.

I should have said what it was, sorry.
