On a more serious note, the filco and leopold boards are very similar in quality with the filco being slightly higher quality. Honestly you and I both would probably have a hard time determining if there actually is a difference between the two. Maybe some keyboard guru could clarify the differences, but for the most part they are effectively "the same" although not quite if that makes any sense.

Get the leopold if the extra $40 for the filco is too much either way you will be happy with whichever keyboard you get.

Hopefully this helps in some way haha

Haha! Rep++

I have a grudge against amazon for their cramped website & overall design... not to mention they don't accept paypal... so i probably will order the 'leopold' straight from elitekeyboards, despite the 'filco' sounding atleast thrice as attractive cool.gif

Wait amazon doesnt accept paypal? Wow I did not know that haha.

And dont worry 2 months typing with this keyboard has me itching to buy another with a different switch type. It's all a matter of time before you want more, it's an addiction, have fun with it biggrin.gif

My next keyboard will be a KBC poker with cherry MX red switches if you're interested haha. Going from my small form factor tenkeyless filco to a really SFF poker for funsies cool.gif

You might want to think about the Ducky wrist rest if you dont want to pay the premium for the Filco or EK one.

I have seen the filco one in person and it is quite nice, but the ducky for half the price is not that bad either.

They have a tenkeyless one and a full size one also. I got this for $30 shipped from a seller (qtan) on GeekHack.

Yea... when I finally saw one in person, it made up my mind that I was going to pick one up.

I did notice it sits a little lower height than the Ducky, but since I didnt have my ducky with me I couldnt compare.

I thought you might have the ducky also can you verify if the ducky is a bit shorter than the filco.

Also side note... love those filco yellow WASD keys.

Reaper - quick question what is that beige keyboard on your desk? SIIG minitouch?

I will do that tomorrow. As soon as it is packed up and I know the ship cost.

It should look good on that desk!

It's Cherry G84-4100 series with Cherry ML switches and sorry I don't have a Ducky wrist rest. Waiting to get a red one from qtan.

Nice Eric.... You mind pinging me if not too much trouble on how much you charge for it and if you can do a black brown finish if possible...
