the Deck Legend is one of the highest quality mechanical keyboards from the controller, keycaps, led, switches, soldering, plastics to the warranty.

Well...a more modern housing would be very nice, I did not ask for a more advanced housing. Das, Filco, etc, all use a modern style of housing. Considering the cost (delivered within 100 miles) was almost twice that of the Das or the Filco, I would have liked a more modern housing. Yes, I am being picky with my 189.00.

As I said, I am sure it is a good keyboard, but just not right for me.

Not cheaper, I ordered directly from them and it was the same price (but with really high shipping charges).

I decided to go with a Das Keyboard Model S Ultimate. I really like the look of it, it's a little cheaper than the filco and had free shipping.

lights are rated at 200,000 hours of life. That's pushing 22 years if the Deck™ is never turned off. It has seven different intensity levels and full brightness is tweaked to 5.25 milliamps.” So not only can you guarantee that your LEDs will last 22 years, but they are the brightest available on the market. I wanted a bit more information so I posed the question to Deck. I was asked not to quote him as he is not in the purchasing department, but know that for the average John Doe at Radio Shack, a single blue LED of the brightness and quality they use would cost about $1.50 USD. They buy them in the thousands; he said that even at this quantity that the LEDs still cost them about $0.90 each. On an 82-key keyboard like the one I have received there are 84 LEDs sent (one under each key, one under the caps lock indicator, and one in the end of the USB cable) and this equates to roughly $75.60 for those of you a little weak in the number crunching. So almost $76 of their $120 price point is spent on using the best LEDs money can buy.

According to our contact at Deck, there is actually very little profit involved. These keyboards are a part of their product line simply because they can be, and if people would like to invest in having the best of the best, they make it. If not, then go with something else. Their theory is that they aren’t around to make a killing in gaming, but they can make the best damn keyboard available to gamers.


that is where your money went.

Cherry makes the perfect switch for the perfect situation not the perfect person. one of the first things I noticed at geekhack was how everybody has something to complain about the click, bump or force. always to little or to much.

the Filco Majestouch uses the same finish the ABS M1 and iOne Scorpius M10 have it's called a silt finish and the Das has a sheen finish. I much rather purchase some aerosol based paints like Plasti Kote Engine Enamel and some Mirror Finish Wax and make the faceplate look like the hood of a Ferrari. your Deck Legend warranty covers this and if you mess up you can purchase another stock faceplate from them how cool is that?

alright i know i am getting annoying with which keyboard, but i really do have my heart on the FILCO majestouch. But theres the Das silent im into.
My questions:
1. does FILCO majestouch support media buttons? like autohotkeys (w.e theyre called) to open apps like internet and itunes ect. [quick opens] what about the das?
2. Which FILCO majestouch verison is the best for gaming. Theres 5 different ones, which with different cherry (i want the quietest cherry which is brown [from what i hear]) and is n-roll really worth the extra $20?

1. Any keyboard in the world can be 'programmed' with autohotkey.

2. The best for gaming are the cherry blacks, which also happen to be the worst for typing. At least that's the general opinion. And if NKRO is worth it is really up to you. I mean, the way I see it, NKRO is just a sort of insurance guarantee that you'll never have any keys blocked. And with how long these keyboards last and how much they cost , I want to be sure I'll never run into trouble.

browns since theyre the queitest ones i guess

Just to add to what Manyak said, here's more information on AutoHotKey:

http://www.autohotkey.com

Almost anything can be done with it.

They won't be quiet like rubber. Any time a key cap is bottomed out, it still makes that "loud" clacky noise. Manyak cautioned me that almost everyone who is new to mechanical keyboards will be bottoming out for the first few weeks. But once adjusted, the only noise will be any loose "chatter" of the keys and any noise the switch makes.

For some good examples of what the different switches generally sound like, I recommend searching YouTube for different things, such as:
But of course, I also recommend YouTubing other things like "Das Model S", or "Steelseries 7G", or whatever you can think of. You can also YouTube the model numbers like "FKBN104M/EB" for the Tactile Touch NKRO.

i'm not defending TG3. in your original post I thought this guy can't be this stupid can he? so I gave you the benefit of the doubt and judging by your reply it is more than most people probably give you.
