gl0ry,

That's very sad to hear that your letterings started to wear off after only 3 days...I can clearly see mine are getting dirtier, but not by any means fading. My urge to take them all off and wash is growing each day, I tell ya.

I'm 100% with you on glossy finish. Looks nice on the first day, and you pretty much have to give up on keeping it clean, not because it's a finger print magnet, but because it is SO prone to hairline scratch that you can't even use a microfiber towel to clean...I mean, c'mon, what was DAS thinking?

I will get a Filco one day. So please keep us posted on how you like it over time

mrwalker,

I was like "whaaaattt????" when I saw the video. You would think he would start typing regular letters...anyhow, he's a genius in his own league for sure.

karnak,

You know, if it's just for my job, I don't need any faster than 60wpm like you. Just the fact that every time I finish a race on Typeracer.com, I see all those golden records right underneath.....pisses me off It's solely for competition and nothing else.

Kirinji, I posted this video on my Filco thread.


I decided to post it here in case you didn't see it. As you can see my technique isn't perfect, but I am able to get fast scores.

I'm watching it right now, as I type this reply, and man, I just don't know what to say.

You see, fast typers that I've seen so far, their fingers just don't move much. I think that's the secret. Your fingers just don't travel from one key to another. Whereas I still do that, and that's a lot of time lost right there.

Thanks for posting the video btw. I might just grab one of those when I go back home as they tend to be a bit cheaper back there. I just checked the Japanese Amazon and the most similar model to yours, which is tenkey-less with letterings on, is around $123, give or take.

I think I should go replace my razer lycosa with a steelseries 6gv2. This non mechanical keyboard is capping my typing speed at 120 wpm. Cherry MX Blacks are the best for typing right?
Hehe xD

No, they're perhaps one of the worst. They require more resistance than most other cherry switches. Check the mechanical keyboard guide for more info.

Blues or Browns shouldn't disappoint though.
