Whoops, didn't rule out the Das so much as forgot there was another version (so now I'm at 3 then)

So any noticeable difference between mx browns & clear?

Clears are stiffer. And in my opinion, better. As they're harder to bottom out.

I would rule out the filco because you can't return it for a refund. maybe you won't like the browns after all.

Yea I got that impression, just tough to make the call without actually feeling it I suppose :/

Leaning more toward Das then (opposed to Filco anyway); plus after going through a few other reviews in the interim / looking for myself again; difference in quality between them seems more apparent to me.

(thanks for the heads up on that guys )

If it helps, Das has an excellent RMA service. I got to use it; twice.

You mean Das? Decks are not shiny, they are more like a "lite-brite" that brings your hands joy as you type.

I duno, I game a lot when I was on blues and I loved every minute of it. Even now on browns I sometimes think I'd like to switch back to blues.

Is there a list out there that ranks all the switches for sound at all?
I sent ripster a PM about this a couple months ago. I am sure he would do it if you bought him a sound meter that records decibel levels.



I wouldn't mind seeing a graph with every mechanical key switch tested at 1, 5 and 10 feet.

it's an issue that concerns newbies interested in purchasing a mechanical keyboard and it would put a end to the constant bickering over which mechanical key switch is louder.

The main problem people have the Filco is that the caps wear. So the Das ones.

But my question is simple: why isn't it called a keypad?
There are many pads of keys on a keyboard.

Besides, I think it's slightly easier to say "keypad" since "numpad" means the lips have to come together twice instead of just once.
