Okay, since no-one told me whether 6Gv2 has any flaws, I think not so many people have it, that leads me to another thought, which is: I must save for a Filco.


Would you please make me a list of the best mechanical (gaming) keyboards below Filco, as we already came to conclusion that Filco makes the best out there. So, which keyboard would you place below Filco on the list? #2......#3........ etc.


ripster, and all the guys who are as well experienced as him to help me here smile.gif I'll appreciate it.

Get a CM Storm Quickfire Rapid. It is essentially a Filco with a few minor differences.

IIRC, the CM Storm Quickfire is made by the same OEM who makes Filcos. Plus, they both use costar stabilizers. The only real difference between a Filco and a CM Storm Quickfire is that the Quickfire has LEDs under the keycaps (caps locks, scroll lock, & numlock) and the Filco does not. Plus, the CM Storm Quickfire has a detachable cable w/ cable routing.

There is an mx black version of the CM Storm Quickfire...the model number is SGK-4000-GKCC1.

I've owned multiple Filcos and a CM Storm Quickfire Rapid (mx red). I can tell you first hand...they are basically identical.

Costars > others?

So you guarantee that they are equally great? Why then 6Gv2 is placed at 2nd position on several forums, right behind Filco Majestouch 2? Why all that hype, when CM Storm makes the 2nd best? smile.gif

Idk...possibly because the CM Storm is still relatively new to the market so not many have tried them yet. The 6Gv2 uses cherry stabilizers. I much prefer Costar stabilizers, as it gives the keys a more uniform feel (though with heavier mx switches you probably won't notice the difference). However, switching keycaps with costar stabilizers takes more time. If I had only $90 to spend on a new keyboard...I'd go CM Storm over 6Gv2 anyday.

Why do generic horrible power supplies get ratings of 4/5? Simply put people know no better.
