No, it does not, because shipping keyboards is expensive. But I've already got one interest. I'll keep you guys posted.

Received new Ficlo replacement. No defects that I can detect, besides the E being kind of awkward to hit before break-in. Definitely feels better though, travel distance for some odd reason seems (double space, uh oh, not again...)to be shorter...

But yeah, THIS is the keyboard I paid $140 for. Most of the keys are VERY similar in tactility, and is very smooth to type on. Definitely worth the $$$

Yeah the other one had to be just a manufacturing blunder, these keyboards are designed to be consistent between keys as much as physically possible.

I'm glad you're at least happy with it now, I imagine you were probably feeling pretty ripped off before

heh yeah, really frustrating to pay that much to have it perform worse than a $5 keyboard. key's are definitely different on this one, comapred top to the red esc key from old one, and these are much "thinner", lower profile. Definitely prefer these to the old ones.

So, Manyak, have you tried the MY switches? If so what are they like? I've got a keyboard coming with MYs that I bought for the double-shot keycaps, and I'm wondering if the keyboard itself is worth keeping.

They feel kind of...springy, for lack of a better word. They are very light at the start, but near the bottom they get extremely stiff (120cN at the bottom). Surprisingly though, this actually makes them a lot easier to get used to than Cherry Blacks because if you just type with the force you'd use normally they travel far enough to actuate and then the spring stops you from bottoming out. It's pretty interesting to try.

However, that being said, I don't think they're as nice as MX Blacks for finger-twitching games or anything tactile for typing. But I do like them better than Blacks for strategy games and 3rd person adventure and stuff like that. Except 2 keyboards on my desk is already enough to deal with!

Hey there, I'm new here but I'm looking for a new keyboard and I can't remember the last time I used a mechanical switch keyboard. I'm looking at either the Majestouch Brown or Blue switch keyboard, which do you think is better for both gaming and typing? Also, do you think that the number keys are necessary or should I go with the 87 key.
