Nice, wholesome, clicky goodness is in this here keyboard.
Nice!!!

By the way, the Cherry MX Browns aren't clicky. I mean, just for the future, the sound you're experiencing is "clacky" because the switches themselves don't make a click.

Talk about splitting hairs, click, clack, tomato tomaaato.

So really, since I am a student for at least another year, that is my deadline for getting a Das.

I stand corrected...clacky.

It is much more, click, err clacky, then the now-retired Saitek.

get this one.

is basicly works like the same
the only thing that Filco is more expensive, because it is made of leather.

It's not the same as that, though. It's more about using the correct terminology to avoid the confusion of anyone who's new to mechanical keyboards (and new to this thread too). I mean, at least concerning the Cherry MX series, the only switches that "click" are the Blues. The rest don't make any sound on their own, so any keyboard outfitted with the rest will just be "clacky" - but only when bottoming out.

In other words, I feel it's important to make sure that the definition of the word "click" doesn't change from being a reference to the sound of a mechanical switch, and that the word "clacky" doesn't change from being a reference to the sound of bottoming out. I mean, a keyboard outfitted with the Cherry MX Blacks is not a "clicky" keyboard.

I apologize for getting serious, but I feel that this is important enough to justify it.

I think it's also due to carrying the Filco brand name.

BTW, the guide says that PS2 wins all around...
How about additional buttons. Like macro buttons?
If you play like MMO's and need all buttons to chat, and would like macros like the Sidewinder x6 or like logitech g15, could PS2 provide them?

This is just me wondering. I have no real use for this as I don't need macros or additional buttons.
