Because they don't know any better. Das is doing the same thing: they should offer a keyboard with the Cherry MX Blacks but they don't.

However, it's not like the Cherry MX Blues are horrible for amateur gamers! But for hardcore, competitive and professional gamers, the difference between the Cherry MX Blues and Blacks can mean the difference between life and death.

I think it's possible an amateur gamer to have issues with the blues, just more likely for a "hardcore" person to care. It just depends on if you lift your finger a lot.

If anyone did a study comparing users that can game with blues, and those that can't, I think it would be very interesting.

Google translate translates mx blues as green axis and mx browns as tea axis or something like that.

Kind of weird because the colors seem to go back and forth through google's translator okay. The words must get mixed or something, IDK how the Chinese language works lol.

Did you use the student discount? Or did you even try to obtain one, lol?

Anyway, no one answered my question. Is there a blank set of lavender WASD keys and blank red ESC key for the Filco keyboards?

Ambra was a subsidiary of IBM that made low end PCs. Their German keyboards had awesome keycaps -



Unfortunately everywhere else got standard keycaps

A lot of people feel disappointed by them when they buy them because they feel more like rubber domes than mechanical switches. The thing is though that they feel very smooth, and don't have the friction like Cherry and Alps switches do. They're my favorite switch type after Buckling Springs.

Then again, I did get my HHKB for around €110 shipped from the US =]

Yeah, AFAIK, the word for green and blue is the same or something. And the "Tea Axis" is what they call the brown switches.

I can understand the backlighting, but the USB hub, IMO, is unnecessary, especially when you have a computer that is plenty full of them. Same with microphone and speaker ports, which are also on your computer.

A keyboard, to me, has to excel in one aspect...and that is the overall typing experience (NKRO, overall feel of the keys, how efficient and easy it is to use and type on, etc.).

For people like me who strongly prefer a wired mouse, having a USB port on the keyboard is awesome. It allows me to keep a wireless feeling (physically speaking) while still benefiting from the wired connection.

But at the same time, I am doing just fine without it because I bought a USB extension cable and attached it in a convenient place so that it's like I have a USB port on my keyboard.
