I'm going to disagree here. Given what they are offering, $140 is extremely cheap compared to the competition. The people who are looking for under $100 keyboards aren't going to go for the $130 any more then the $140.

Especially when you compare the pricing to having to buy a separate key set for other keyboards.

Well I don't think my Majestouch is the best board ever built. But it sure does beats any other mechanical I've used (which is exactly 4 lol, but still) in terms of build quality.

Strangely no one is able to translate this in real points.

The word quality is just used and abused w/o any real evidence.

A filco board is surely better built than a, say, Adesso board.

But where are the differences from a Leopold, a WASD board, a TT g1 or whatever ?

Question: Does it use PS/2 or USB and what is the KRO?

Nice! Thanks for the review, TT. Now if they'd only offer tenkeyless models... tongue.gif

Question: Does it use PS/2 or USB and what is the KRO?

it does both

http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/index.php/products/custom-keyboards-1.html


Copied from the Mechanical Keyboard guide
http://www.overclock.net/keyboards/491752-mechanical-keyboard-guide.html

Key Rollover (#KRO & NKRO)
NKRO is when you can press as many keys as you want at the same time, and all of them go through. This is similar to what some 'gaming keyboards' incorrectly market as "anti-ghosting", even though Logitech and Razer only apply it to the WASD cluster. Note that right now only PS/2 keyboards can exhibit full n-key rollover; though Microsoft and Ducky are just two companies who have already looked at designing NKRO over USB.

#KRO, where # = Any Number, is the key roll over of your board; and stands for the maximum number of keys you can press without experiencing any key blocking.

Many USB mechanical Keyboards are labeled as 6KRO, meaning any 6 keys can be pressed at once without the user experiencing blocking. This is generally enough for most users. Though a limited number of games may have a problem with 6KRO.
USB keyboards with 6KRO also allow for a maximum of 4 modifier keys to be used with those 6 normal keys. These modifiers include CTRL, ALT, Shift, & Super (Windows, Command, or Meta Key.)
Sometimes this also includes the FN key present on select keyboards.

First of all Tator if you frequented GH you'd know that our friend Solutor has a very deep dislike for Filcos and Filco users. I personally think my Filco is great. As has been said before I feel like I could smash someone's head into pieces with my Filco and come out without a scratch. For example in the WASDKB I can see the plastic case is two pieces. The Filco is 'unibody' so to speak. Question, if you blind-tested someone on the WASDKB and Filco in Browns what would be the difference? I find my Filcos to be crisper than the Poker, but that's PCB v Plate mounted.

Where, when, what ?

Filcos are reasonably well built boards, and I don't dislike them, is the price that is completely unrelated to their quality, and is this that I dislike.

Sell them for 100$ and no one will criticize your baby.

Im used to smarter people, but filco owners are usually nice people too..tongue.gif

Yes I have to admit the the filco keyboard housing design is a real novelty biggrin.gif.

Olivetti M15 (AD1987), designed in Italy and built in Japan (curious isn't it ?)

Great review, but I have to say that $140 for a fully customizable mechanical keyboard is exactly the opposite of "expensive!" That's a great deal. A Filco tenkeyless costs the same amount and obviously you are getting a lot less (in terms of options, not quality).
