Exactly.

Now I don't even have the budget to do this.

I don't even mind if my new keyboard doesn't have the layout I prefer, but I just want to have a better mouse.

Not really.

It's just the fact that with the Das S, which has almost superior material and interface, is like $70 cheaper.

There's pretty much nothing I can do, right (Imported from US to Canada)?

I guess i'll just live with the Filco.

They're within a stones throw of each other as far as keyboards go. You won't be disappointed you purchased the filco. You'll be ecstatic that's its not a lowly rubber domer

Yes, and I completely agree. I'm only talking about facts.

Don't feel too bad. I've got a Filco too, and I'm perfectly happy with it. There's no reason that you won't enjoy it. I'm honestly not sure I could deal with the shiny coating on the Das.

After some thoughts, I guess it was worth the $180 : I like the design, I did want a matte layout, I paid the premium; It was also a birthday gift.

But the keys getting shiny after a month of usage?

Eww.

EDIT : Now I just need to find a way to get a new mouse. Maybe next year? =)

it's not that bad! a couple finger prints. the bottom of the face plate where my wrist lean against is where the prints occur.

I read polish 3 times a day! I laughed out loud. if that was the case I would be worried too but Zoloft might be a better solution

The Filco is the opposite of the type of keyboard that you would have to "just live with", so to speak.

I've had my Tactile Click since March 9th (so for about a month and a half), and the only thing that's getting shiny is my Spacebar, but it's actually pretty difficult right now to tell that it's shiny unless I look at it in the right light. I mean, I have to make an effort to see the shiny spot that I'm making. But the rest of the keys still look perfect.

However, I love my keyboard. So, I make sure that I never touch the keys with sweaty fingers, and I make sure that I never touch the keys when my hands aren't clean. I am also a touch typist, and I also developed a gentler typing style for this keyboard.

So, I guess it is different for everyone. Besides, you can always replace the keycaps with something you like much better anyway.

I bet you that it won't be a year. Even if it is though, I think you'll feel that it's worth it.
It's a computer!

majestouch gave some speech about it depends on the ph levels, oils, acids, etc. I am sure I wasn't the only one who felt like harming him while reading it.

majestouch also says they have been trying to solve this problem for a long time now but I don't understand the hold up. how hard is it to laser etch a keycap? is the keycap to thin? cost to high?
