Would you recommend buying a mechanical keyboard, and if so, which one? [Keyboard Bought] - Page 3

Nah, it's quite the big difference.
Norwegian. Other than the fact that most of the symbols are differently placed (this doesn't really matter if I can just force it into a Norwegian layout), the enter key is bigger and a few other things. I'll check out that site tho, thanks!

EDIT: http://www.keyboardco.com/keyboard_details.asp?PRODUCT=753 <- Would work. It's basically the same as a Norwegian keyboard, and it got brown switches.

EDIT2: Alright, I read a lot of good things about this keyboard. I'm stuck between the Filco Majestouch-2 with Brown switches and the Corsair K60 with red switches now. Only reason I'm still pondering on the Corsair K60 is that I've heard red switches might be better for FPS-gaming than brown? Also, guys, your help is amazing, thank you smile.gif

EDIT3: Bought! Filco Majestouch-2 with Brown switches. Thanks for all the help guys, let's hope it's as good as you tell me smile.gif

I have a Majestouch 2 Ninja with brown switches.

I have nothing bad to say about it at all and play quite a bit of FPS games. I think you will be happy =)

THIS IS FRICKING AMAZING. I just want to write write write write. Only thing I'm not quite used to yet is the space bar, but I guess that's just something you gotta live with when it comes to mechanical keyboards. Other than that, amazing biggrin.gif

Damn, sounds awesome. I myself just ordered a keyboard with Brown switches, I hope I get the same reaction you do.

When I got my Filco mx blue TKL, my reaction was more like... why did go from mech keyboards to rubber domes? I got the clicky switches because... where my office is located in the house... noise is not the issue. I wanted my mech keyboard loud and clicky... but when I started typing on it, the noise wasn't that bad. At least I don't think it's irratating like some people make them out to be. I don't touch type... so I would bottom out brown switches anyway... so I might as well add the "click" to go with the "clack".tongue.gif I love the sound and feel, so I doubt I'll change my typing style.

Reactions: Congrats on the new mech keyboard... I know how you feel.... I just want to TYPE, TYPE, TYPE...smile.gif

Haha ye. I understand. To be honest, you can't say brown switches are silent. They're not silent at all. They clack clack clack and it's beautiful. The Filco keyboard is much prettier than it looked on the picture too, it's not as rough as I thought it'd be and the finish is really cool. The Keyboard Company did a really good job, the delivery was fast from their side, only reason it took a bit longer time was the tolling system here in Norway. The packing was really good, the box was not any bigger than it needed to be.
