Next question?

Do you have fitment issues around the capslock, left shift, tab key area of the Camo with SP caps? I've had to sand 2 SP sets down (caps lock, tab, and left shift) to fit on the Camo...but haven't had to do the same with a Ninja case.

That's probably the Signature Plastic key stem placement being off.

I'll check my Moogle Kit latest round keys I just got.

I'm also debating on whether to pull the trigger on a Filco. The only reasons I haven't already is it appears that the Filco, having ABS key caps, develop shine fairly quickly, after reading some reviews. I originally had a Das and it started developing shine on the spacebar within a few weeks of typing on it at work. For the price of the Filco, plus another fifty bucks to switch out the keys to PBT, I would be approaching the price of a Topre. It just doesn't make sense to me for a premium keyboard to have sub par key caps.

Best in terms of quality? Probably in the top tier in my opinion (Not a resident expert like ripster...I've only had one for a month or two = / ).

In terms of value (mostly as a response to m00nshake)? Depends on much you value having a potential weapon connected to your computer tongue.gif . At least to me, there's a certain point in board quality where I'm satisfied and I look for other things (switch type, aesthetics, misc. features) to justify pricing.

Hey guys,

I just have a quick question about the Filco Majestouch 2 Keyboards.. I'm about to purchase one (Cherry MX Blue Full Size), but I've noticed in some pictures the LEDs for the numlock/capslock/scroll lock are Green and in other pictures the LEDs are Blue. Why is that? Is there a difference between the 2 colors in terms of performance/model? Or is that purely cosmetic and people are just swapping LED lights to match their setup color scheme?

Thanks!

P.S. I apologize for my double-post. I wasn't sure which section my question would go. Sorry mods!

Hey Ripster, you know anything about these keycaps? http://www.ebay.com/itm/300719194841?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

Thinking of getting them for my Filco smile.gif

Looks like the thin but functional KBC PBT keys.

I have the engraved versions.

Yea, thin style (taller profile I believe) and since they are side printed, you won't wear the lettering off. Win win!

They're also white like snow... not any of that off white crap.

Well, mine has blue leds. I think that all filco 2's have blue leds as standard, but I'm not sure. Does it really matter? tongue.gif
