I hope so.

Thank you.

both Deck and IBM have a 2" elevation. since Costar manufactures everything else the Deck is the highest elevation you will get.



I don't think the Deck Legend 105 Gold is elevated but the one above it looks like it.



this is the ridge I was talking earlier and is probably where the extra .5" comes from. there is actually nothing inside, modders use it to store electronics.

No I did not use it before I bought it. I kinda did it on a whim without ever having tried a mechanical keyboard before (at least that I can remember). I just had that feeling that this was for me. Worst case scenario was I returned it within 30 days to Deck and just incur the cost of trying it out, or I sold it on ebay or something. Either way I'd only be out like $10-20 or so.
just checking because when i game. i like to have my left hand finger in a 90 degree angle over the keys. so if the keyboard is tilted i need to be elevated but if its flat ill just hover over it and i wont need a wrist rest but with my abs m1 i need on anyway i place it.

Yeah, as lmnop's pics above show, it has a bit of elevation even with the flaps down. You might want a wrist pad.

It threw me off a first, but I'm getting used to it

I received my blank keys today for my Filco Majestouch. I had no problem switching out the letter'd keys. even the shifts, enter, and backspace just needed an ink pen and a little patience to switch out. i'm still thinking about using krylon (gold) to paint the letter'd keys.

Could I ask : How do you feel when typing on your majestouch?

How is it superior to rubber dome, in your opinion?

I'm just trying to get some opinions because I did order a majestouch but it was a last minute buy.

How are the Filco Majestouch Brown vs Blue switches for gaming?

I do a fair amount of both, so I'm wondering how they compare.

Cherry MX Blues are not suited for gaming.

What is it about them that makes them not suitable?

I'm new to this whole mechanical keyboard, but I'm liking my new ABS M1. Huge improvement from my standard Dell rubber domes keyboard, but the keys do feel a bit heavy typing on them.
