Despite the answers to these questions, I doubt I will be dissapointed with the board.
The Ninja Filco has ABS key cap material. It only matters based on your preference for typing/gaming. I prefer PBT key caps because they don't wear as fast, and ABS get slick on the surface extremely fast. I personally can't stand them. Filco has a clear coat on their key caps which is one of the downsides (as many people see it) to their boards. Leopold has PBT key caps, and overall the caps are more expensive (I believe). It can be determining factor when decide to buy a Filco, or not to buy one. As most of every thing else on a Filco is of the highest quality.
The Filco Ninja boards are nice though. It's a good idea on how they printed the caps. It looks nice, and won't wear down. I am one of those people who doesn't like blank boards, and so I considered a Ninja at one time.Edited by Trueepower - 9/8/11 at 4:17pm
