Now, here's the kicker: the Majestouch has no "features", but yet I feel that it was worth every last penny that I spent on it while now I feel like both the Lycosa and G15 were complete rip-offs. In comparison, it's like those kind of keyboards are for children while good mechanical keyboards are for men and women (or "adults").

There is absolute nothing I dislike or hate about the Majestouch.

Why, exactly, do buckling spring keyboards only have 2-3KRO?

New to the forums, really looking for a new keyboard and leaning towards getting a filco with the cherry browns, but thought I would toss this out there:

http://us.aving.net/news/view.php?articleId=158280

I know it was mentioned about 520+ pages ago with rubber domes but the latest PR material from gigabyte shows keys with different force requirements for gaming keys. Does that mean that it may not necessarily be a rubber dome keyboard?

Perhaps, but I think going with the Filco is still a better deal. I think the Gigabyte might be partially mechanical, while the Filco is truly mechanical.

Rosewill contacted Costar to make the CST-104 with NKRO and Blue cherries their brand (basically, a Filco Majestouch Tactile Click NKRO) and they list the thing for a few hours and deactivate it (not mark it out of stock) on Newegg & Chiefvalue (newegg owned). Newegg Link.

The worst part is that it was $70 (vs. $146.50 shipped for the NKRO Click Filco) on Chiefvalue (item is deactivated and now points to an error page again, the Newegg URL still works for the Rosewill version but no one has ordered it here or on Geekhack because the $30 promo didn't work). When it came back in stock today, I asked Chiefvalue to take a look into reactivating the coupon (since it never worked while the keyboard was in stock on 7/21 and expired 7/25) and they said they would. Boom, deactivated again (haven't heard back from them either).

Also, the ABS M1 (another Newegg house brand, also Costar made) was falsely claimed to be NKRO, so everyone is afraid to be the first person to get it. As far as I can tell no one on OCN or Geekhack has ordered one. This kind of makes me skeptical, if you google the model number the discussions are on the expired deal on OCN and Geekhack alone within the past few days.

Anyhow, my theory is that Newegg's reps are just screwing with me at this point:

looooooooooool, trolled hard son.

Anyways, good to see you around. I haven't been on geekhack for a while. I'd like to be updated on the situation with this KB. A cheap KB w/blues + NKRO by Costar sounds nice.

OT: Any progress on DS Key caps for Filcos? Did Brian from EK make any progress?

As far as I know, the key caps haven't been switched over to dye sublimated. However, for the blank keyboards, they have taken away the little bubble for the Windows key. So now, all the keys look completely uniform.

I was asking about replacement sets actually.

muchadoaboutnothing tried to get a group buy for DS Key caps and then Brian from EK said that he had been looking into it already.
