Probably not, potential variations in switches, but apart from that, i think not.

The Filco logo on the side of the keyboard is darker. Other than that and the side printed key caps, there are no differences.

Greetings, folks.

I am considering getting one of these keyboards: Topre 88 45g, Filco Majestouch 2 TKL Brown, Ducky Shine Brown. Mostly gaming, some regular typing. Can someone put them in order of build quality? Whilst Topres and Filcos are top end, I don't know what to think of not-so-big-name-player as Ducky.

As I understand it, I cannot use Cherry keycaps for Topre, neither I've seen them on sale anywhere. Are Topre's keycaps everlasting or demand that low?

Also I've wached a couple of Filco Ping videos, and couldn't get whats it all about. So I guess it defines a lot about me in world of mechanical keyboards. smile.gif

Realforce has exceptional quality as well as Costar keyboards(Filco). Either way you go you will have top of the line quality, The one thing I see the Realforce having over the Filco is the higher quality keycaps and dipswitches. The Ducky ,I have heard from some, is on the same level as a Filco but I have no real world experience with them so I would personally not trust it as much.

Order from best to worst build quality would definitely be Topre, Filco, Ducky.

Since topre's do not use cherry switches, they can not take cherry keys. Not like you would ever want to, the topre key caps are so well made and feel awesome. They have a bit of texturing on the tops that is really neat.

Anyways, you shouldn't be lumping the topre and cherry boards together in your decision. They are a completely different feel, and in a completely different price range. I would look into the switches more, and decide what sounds like you would prefer.... then decide to either go with Topre, or a cherry board.

Thanks a lot for feedback. So far I can't make my mind. Certanly I love perfect craftmanship of Topre, while on the other hand cherry boards allow a lot of customization like keycaps, rubber rings, etc, which I am very fond of as well. Boosted with PBT keycaps Filco would cost as much as Topre. So prices aren't that different.
Regarding feel. I am most familiar with Black switches how would they be comparible with Topre's 45g? In the place I live I don't have a chance to try Topre anywhere.

Topre's are very well made rubber dome boards. The only similarity to mx blacks is about how much pressure it takes to press the key down. If you really like the mechanical feeling of the Cherrys you'll probably want to stick with them. Otherwise, I would go with the Realforce.

Hello mechanical keyboard experts!!!!

I've been using a Logitech Illuminated for a couple years now, but recently tried a friends SS mechanical (the big one with the huge wrist wrest). I'm looking at the CM Quickfire Rapid and the Ducky Shine. I've narrowed it down to browns or reds, but I'm honestly not sure which I would prefer. I do game, so that is a consideration towards the reds...

Thanks!

Browns are good for gaming as well.

I am currently using a razer lycosa and I love the flat rubber keys. Is there a mechanical keyboard out there that has similar flat rubber keys? According to the guide the Deck Legend does, however looking at reviews it looks as though the keys are rounded? Otherwise any other reccomendations are welcome!

Thanks!
