Can I go wrong with a Ninja Majestouch Tenkeyless?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I cant stand my BW keys and layout anymore.... I want something clean, small, and compact. I would imagine Filco is king in this regard. Considered Ducky and Leopold but I'm not particularly a fan of buyer's remorse and I can't find anything bad about Filco (Unless you count some posts over at Geekhack). I'm sure Ducky and Leopold are great keyboards but reviews for those seem more varied as opposed to Filco reviews.

I like the design on the Ninja Majestouch Tenkeyless w/ brown switches and am about to order one through Amazon - Is there anything else I need to know/consider before I pull the trigger?

Unless you want to splash out on a Realforce 87, or troll eBay for a Model M Space Saving Keyboard, the Tenkeyless Filco is probably the best keyboard of its type out there.

Warranty policy is a bit unclear after the standard 30 days Amazon one.

You have to watch Amazon's return policies. For example they won't let you RMA DOA Braun Razers. It's because they claim the alcohol pack is hazardous material so you have to go through Braun USA which is an offshoot of the National Socialism party.

Has Filco recently changed their warranty problem or something? Would I see problems after 30 days?

Saw your post over at Geekhack, sorry to hear about the razer problems. A bit ridiculous imo.

This is discouraging... And here I thought I was so crafty with my free amazon prime. Hopefully nothing happens to it I guess.

You have 30 days to RMA through amazon and if it doesn't come with anything wrong with it nothing well ever be wrong with it

That sucks, but it might be worth the risk for these boards?

If there's something wrong with it, you'll know long before 30 days is up.
