That question really doesn't have an answer......it entirely depends on you!

You might love gaming on it from the first click, but you might hate it and not even want to bother trying to adapt.

Well that's what I am kind of scared of. I am eagerly anticipating the arrival of my Filco in two more days, but I don't want to find it impossible to game on. Marin and IEATFISH continue to be my inspiration (they game on blue cherries, haha).

Hey guys, I've been sort of lurking around here on overclock.net for the past few weeks, and I stumbled upon this thread, and decided I wanted one of these awesome keyboards

So I bought the Filco Tenkeyless Cherry MX Blue, and I've been typing on it for the past few days now. It's definitely an improvement over my old Logitech Media Keyboard. I also do a bit of gaming every now and then, usually MW2 or CSS, and it does take some getting used to with this keyboard.

What freaked me out the most in the beginning was the loud clicking, which is really soothing to me when I'm typing, but when I'm gaming it's just plain weird. I haven't gotten completely used to the way this keyboard clicks, like what ch_123 was talking about here. It is different, but once you've used it for a while I don't think you will think anything of it

Either way, I think you'll be very happy with the keyboard Admiral Mudkipz
Also, thanks Manyak for the education and motivation!

It's doable, and you get used to it after a bit, but it's not exactly ideal.

I'd argue that buckling springs or clicky Alps are a better choice if you want a clicky keyboard for gaming, but NKRO versions of them are hard to find if you want that capability. There used to be the Filco Zero, but that isn't sold outside Japan any more.

ch_123 keyboardco.com sells a USA version of the Filco Zero, site says it has XM White, I think those are a fake kind of ALPS or something?

I thought they didn't have them any more.

Either way, the XM switches are meant to be absolutely horrible. They switched over to clicky Fukka switches, and elitekeyboards stocked them at $80 for a while. Unfortunately they are no longer available.

There were some transposition issues with them that were supposedly not easy to fix. I think that was part of the reason why they are no longer available from elitekeyboards.

I do too actually

But that's kind of like, seeing a real hot chick at a bar, but not going up to speak to her because you're scared she's a guy. Don't you think you should at least see what they're like before worrying about anything?

For the record I just played some TF2 and some COD4 and everything feels the same to me. I'm not really good at either game because I don't really play much other than iRacing but Blues seemed fine for gaming to me at least. Maybe a more demanding, competitive player would have problems.

Gaming issues on blues really only stem from double tapping a key repeatedly. I don't find myself doing that much in any game (except spacebar with scout in TF2). You shouldn't have a problem, and I know that you will still have a gasm when you try out the new board in a day or two.

Well I asked Marin how hard it was to double tap when playing Scout. He said that it was too easy...but then again, that's his opinion.

This YouTube- Majestouch Tenkeyless n-key rollover still continues to impress me on how well blue cherries are. Start watching at 0:40.
