I spent $160 to get my Filco from Keyboard Co's Amazon.com store (they were kind enough to send some of their stock to an Amazon.com warehouse in the United States so that we could buy Filco without having to pay for international shipping) and I'd say it was worth every penny, but for $300 I'm not sure I would have went for it. Maybe. I'll have to think about that one
That Amazon store is a life saver. Got my Tenkeyless Filco Brown's Ninja from there. Best $150 I've spent on the computer to date.

There are mods to convert Nostromo to mechanical switches if you really want to tear it apart, but even as stock NKRO dome its still excellent. The n52te from Belkin is very similar to Nostromo but there are slight differences in the controller board and drivers that will run on it.

That thing looks awesome. I'm not a serious enough gamer for that though I think!

To clarify I'm not ruling out a keyboard with a numpad or anything, just not having one is a plus for me if it means a neater keyboard.

Think I'll have a look for the best places for me to buy them online tomorrow and choose my favourite few and report back and buy whichever is deemed best. Kind of an urgent purchase really.
