How could I forget about that legendary program? Thanks alot. Now there's absolutely no reason to go for the 6gv2 over the Filco Ninja now.

If your seeking the best in quality then Filco is at the top. I own two Majestouch 2 keyboards and using the Ducky Shine right now. I think the Filcos have better cases then my Ducky and the stands on the Duck are very cheap. The case on the Filcos feels a lot more soild in terms of build quality. Having said that, if I didn't own the Filcos first I would of never noticed any problems with my Ducky. If you really want backlit keys you will be happy with purchasing a Ducky Shine.

I have had a 6Gv2 for about a week now. It is a nice, solid feeling keyboard and I don't have any complaints about the build quality. It is professionaly looking and sounding and has all the necessary keys.

However, I personally do not enjoy typing on the black switches. Purely subjective. I am getting a Ducky Shine with browns and will be returning the Steelseries from the big box store I got it from.

I would stay away from black. They are ok, but just a little to stiff. They are heavier than what rubber domes are. I myself am going to try reds out instead since the blacks are too heavy.
