I cant really define biggrin.gif

 

I have myself a nice Cooler Master Quick Fire Black switches keyboard and loving it. Just wondering if changing to a Filco black switch one would be better.

 

Although I am wondering if I should switch to blue or any other color. Perhaps red.

If your loving your current board, then there is no real reason to switch. thumb.gif
Go with what you feel comfortable with.

And things like how many keys can be depressed, extra keys, back-lights, stuff like that.

Thank you.

 

I had never used a mechanical keyboard until I got myself the CM Quick Fire. I love it I really though but perhaps a different switch could yield better typing feeling.

 

But since as far as I know, the black switches are the most quiet ones, I might still keep them after all.

 

Wife gets mad at the sound of this when she goes to bed and I type. She could murder me with a clicky one.

That's the big probelm I had, not many people I know have mechanicals so trying out switches wasn't an option for me. I ended up getting an insane deal on my MX Red Filco on here from another member when my G110 finally died.

It took a while to get use to having no feedback other than bottoming out. But once I learned how to type without pushing the keys all the way down, I was on my way to a glorious typing experience.

The build quality of my Filco is astounding though, compared to most keyboards I've used, the plastic is a little thicker and much stronger, barely able to flex it at all; the base is nice and heavy; PCB is super clean and well laid out with nice thick traces, and all components are very secure from the switches themselves to the 3 LED's on the top right. The only problem I have is the feet on the back. They stick out almost perpendicular to the base so if I push back in the keyboard slightly, the feet flip back down, easy fix though with a pirce of tape, but annoying at LAN parties.

Yeah, perhaps no need to spend money as I am quite happy with mine.

I sometimes think if I should get a backlit mechanical but than come to conclusion that I really don't need it as I am typing without looking at the keyboard.

 

Also God Bless mechanical keyboards and I never ever miss a key while typing. Its rare.

 

With my old Logitech G110, I used to miss keys.

 

I thought about getting the Gigabyte's mechanical keyboard but than decided not to. I dont believe the build quality will be as good as mine.

The closest thing to watercooling here is an H100!
But you could get any keyboard shipped from the US for cheaper than 4 black widows.

Do you have any friends in Taiwan? There are a lot of South Africans here is why I ask. Get one to bring you a board when they come home for Xmas.
Or how is the mail there now? Ya,... I know. is there a not too expensive version of FedEx or other private shipper, I could send you one if you have PayPal.
