It looks like you already have a good idea of what to get and what to avoid. Can't go wrong with Filco (esp now that they are on Amazon), Leopold is a good alternative, Rosewill would be fine too if it ever came back in stock. I would say the Razer BW at $60 would be a good deal, but I'd personally shell out more money to get much higher quality and standard font on the keys (vs. strange Razer font).
Maybe I'll hate it again when I get another MX Blue keyboard but the fact of the matter is that my current Logitech Illuminated feels like it's about to fall apart every time I play a game. There are times when my WASD keys don't even register in games unless I hit it in a proper location. It's terribad.
I'm really interested in the RK-9000 from Rosewill considering it's mostly a Filco but about $50 less. Supposedly, Newegg will also eventually stock MX Brown and MX Red versions. Now that would be interesting.
I'm still hankering to buy that Razer BW again simply because it has certain keys (like...media keys and other convenience-adding buttons) but it's $71 on Amazon. Bah.

To paraphrase an old IBM saying, "You never get fired for buying a Filco".
I don't know what the deal is with Amazon's Filco inventory. One day they're there, the next day they don't have the Add to Cart button. Weird.Edited by RallyMaster - 6/19/11 at 10:08am
