Costar stabilisers look good, the more I research them. Which I guess rules out the Ducky.
What are you guys' opinions of Filco? I can see the Majesto 2 is over my budget, but the brand seems to come recommended... I guess the alternative is to buy the CM Quickfire XT and replace the keys - as I really don't like the font on them and I know it would annoy me. Is there a particular model of Filco you might recommend for me?
Or a set of replacement keycaps with a more neutral font for the Quickfire? I couldn't see anything on amazon.co.uk...
Does Filco have issues with 'pinging' and uneven fonts printed on the keys?
Ping has to do with the Cherry switch, you're just as likely to get it on a Filco as you are on a $40-on-sale Thermaltake board. That is, not very likely.
All Filcos are going to cost a lot. If you want something cheaper, go for a Quickfire with similar features. Jixr linked a good list. You can get a full set of keycaps for max $40 if you know where to look. My current set of caps came from Max Keyboards. It has the legends printed on the front, rather than the top, so there's nothing at all to feel on the top of the key. They were $40 plus shipping, and it's a universal set so it works on pretty much any Cherry board you'll find.
