I think Filco made its reputation by their "quality" products.

I bet they wouldn't lose much money by making laser'd keycaps. See the Das' models and their price.

Diatec made it's reputation because they were the only viable choice! but not anymore. they probably wouldn't. I wish Ducky keyboards were sold in North America

I don't know that it would be better, but I would like to have tried it. There are three reasons: The Das has the blank keys (and I can't get blank Filco keycaps in Aus), the Das has the piono gloss finish which would match my monitors/speakers, and I wonder if the Das has a slightly heavier key feel.

But I am by no means dissapointed with my Filco

I have been searching the net and can't find anywhere to buy keys for my ABS M1.

Looking for some different color WASD keys and ESC and backspace if possible.

Anyone have any ideas?

With gas prices and practicality, I'd buy a Civic or a Hyundai. I'm just sayin' Christine.

mechanical keyboards that use Alps switches are usually beige or grey.

Working on putting together a custom order of OCN-themed keycaps for the ABS M1 and other Alps keyboards. Link in my sig.
