that is a better deal #fosho. thanks!

btw, i'll use it for typing (most games i play require a numpad (which btw if anyone knows any external ones)), so should i get the blues? iirc the diff. is the clack sound which isnt a huge deal for me.

Nice find. Just to be clear, it's 66.99 (same as Amazon), with a $15 rebate that brings it to $51.99. Really good deal.

Here's a link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823129002

And link to rebate: http://images10.newegg.com/uploadfilesfornewegg/rebate/SH/CoolerMaster23-129-002Dec01Dec3112tt35.pdf

checking it now...

also, is this true? i usually dont trust amazon reviews as most are done by not-so-knowledge-people

It's built by Costar (who make keyboards for Filco, like the Majestouch) for Coolermaster, so in essence you are getting a rebadged Filco, which makes the pricepoint even more attractive.

is this really a rebadged filco? so it means i can just change my housing if i fail to paint it white *hint hint* with a filco?

also unused for $52, this is VERY tempting, now if i only convince my dad to buy it now instead of getting it when we go there for a few weeks in february. lol

I believe that the short answer to this question is "no." The guts may be assembled by costar, but my understanding is that you cannot just swap cases. I would LOVE to learn that's not true though...

You can't case-swap. 

 

Still, the build quality between all of the Costar products has been high.

The maker of the boards may be the same but I'm fairly sure the Filco's are more expensive for a reason, they can also be used to defend yourself from home invaders. tongue.gif
post #10888 of 36807
I don't know about the quickfire other than trying it once, but you can swap housing on some keyboards. Ex. Filco, I almost bought a solid aluminum for it, but it was sold out before I got the chance. On geek hack, there doing all kinds of crazy mods, even add on arduino like stuff. That's taking it a little extreme with the keyboard imo, but check it out some stuff is interesting.
post #10889 of 36807
I think most of the reason Filco are more expensive is that they haven't dropped the price. Back in the day they were one of the few Cherry MX boards you could get in the USA, so they haven't been priced against all this new competition. People still buy them due to all the old rave reviews.

Crazy is right on the money.

 

Filco's are expensive because of the name alone. You get the same quality of keyboards built by the same OEM for less money from WASD, Cooler Master, Thermaltake, & others. Usually with more features or functionality to them.

 

The standard Costar casing for keyboards (ala what WASD, Mionix, Thermaltake, & Zowie Gear have used on their boards) is less expensive than the unibody esk design of Filco; it's not $40-60 less expensive.

More so since Filco has undoubtedly made back costs in tooling on those casings anyways.
