Thank you. This is all I'm saying.

Who are you talking to? If you're talking to me, then I have a big problem with this statement:

I do not "jump" on people when they make their argument for the Das when they are simply stating their opinion. Why do I say this? Because when somebody simply says that they prefer the Das, then that's fine. That's their opinion and I respect it. But when they try to assert that it more or less crushes other boards like the Filcos, then that's when I have a problem with it. Why do I have a problem with it? Because some people might read such statements and feel that the Filco boards are absolutely not an option. Therefore, it pisses me off when somebody says things that has the potential of limiting somebody's options who really doesn't know any better.

What if I were to say that the Tactile Click NKRO is far superior to the Das Model S? Just imagine if I were to basically talk about the Model S in such a way that causes somebody else to say things like, ".....but I ordered the Das Model S because I thought it was a good board. Now I feel like I wasted my money. This sucks... I wish I would have waited". Exactly. I have always kept my comments about the Tactile Click NKRO limited to the reasons why I like this board and why it's the best one for me. I have never said that the Das Model S is crap. Every single time you have seen me make the kind of comments you're talking about, it's me defending a person's freedom to make up their own mind. Or, it is sometimes me repeating the reasons why I chose the Filco over the Model S. I have never said the kind of things you seem to think I've said.

Instead of bashing other mechanical keyboards, I want to help encourage anyone who is trying to make a decision to consider every mechanical keyboard that they come across instead of leaving some of them out of the picture. After all, this will enable them to make up their own mind on what keyboard is best for them right after they have figured out which switch type they want. It may also encourage them to ask about their final decision before ordering.

So I don't know what you're talking about, but if you were talking to me, then you severely misunderstood me.

Awww I thought that was back lighting for a second, still a really cool board though.

And where to buy. Will cost a lot to get imported though.


I've seen some Ducky boards on ebay for roughly the same price as a filco ($130-150)
http://cgi.ebay.com/Ducky-104-Nkey-C...item414ee826db

Edit: WOW, $80 shipping. I see what you mean now.

I'd rather buy a HHKB for that price

plus when you get a board like that imported you pretty much have no recourse if anything goes wrong with it.

But damn is it a nice board.


I think I might take it over an HHKB because of the layout, familiarity of MX browns, and just the sheer class it emanates. Just look at the key profile shots. That is sexy. Mmm.

Then it would be $215 shipped vs. $250 shipped. Plus, I think Otaku would get boring pretty quick. I mean, yeah, the minimalist aesthetic is neat, and it's fun to watch people struggle to use your computer, but it's like comparing a Ferrari F430 to a BMW M3. Sure, the Ferrari looks sleek and new aged and maybe it can run a race course faster, but the BMW is still kick-ass and has that classic look to it. Plus, it's a BMW. **** Ferrari.

if Kip69 can ship a G80-3494 to America from Taiwan for $170 I am sure it won't cost much.

inpad.com.tw

Ducky 104 with Media Keys cost $105 US
Ducky 108 with Media Keys and Hot Keys cost $110 US.
Ducky 108 with Media Keys, Hot Keys, extra Keycaps and a Keycap Puller cost $120 US.

$50 shipping tops.

of course you get to choose your switch and I think they all come with White W, S, A, D Keycaps.

the stock Keycaps are made out of ABS and PBT. the printing is Laser Etched. USB cable is not hard wired so if your cable ever dies or want to extend it you can replace it this is a feature the Gigabyte GK-K8000 had which I thought was rather neat. the Cherry MX Switches look like they are mounted high because the Keycaps are barely inside the face plate and of course the Media Keys and Hot Keys.

Blank

Black on Grey

White on Black

Extra Keycaps

USB, White W, S, A, D.

Yeah personal preference, I come to love my Filco.
was in the same predicament when i ordered mine,
did more research because i never do enough before the purchase.
Found many saying Das is better which made me question my purchase.
Then I took a long look at both keyboards and realized Filco is sexier and fits my taste.
To some the Das doesnt look fancy, but it does to me.
Too fancy for me, gives me that "It looks like an overpriced gaming keyboard" lol
