the filco looks great but it's too expensive, the printing in the front looks weird lol
It's like a blank keyboard, except if you REALLY need to look at it, you can still find it . I put an order in for one, gonna send my das back...

I love my das but the laser etching paint infill is already wearing off after 3 days! Driving me crazy.

I dont have any experience with other mechanicals, but Im impressed with the U9BL-s I am using right now.

I read on this site mostly but others as well, all the horror stories of this keyboard having this problem, and that keyboard having that problem.

The blackwidow ultimate was the one that really fit what I wanted but I was scared to get it do to too many people complaining about the QA issues.

This board wasn't as bad as that one so I decided to pull the trigger on it. I really don't care if the DAS 'feels' better. This keyboard feels great under my fingers. Im sure I will find another one some other day but for now, this one provides pretty much everything I need in features, feels very sturdy, and is generally pleasing to type on.

One thing I wish. I wish I would have gone with the blues over the browns. The browns aren't loud enough!
