And how can I figure out which ones have MX Brown or MX Clear keys?

I want to know the color before I buy one.

Usually there is some kind of indicator which switch that particular keyboard uses. Let us know which one you're interested in and I'm sure someone can tell you what type of switches it has.

From my experience the build quality is kind of cheap they are really light. They difinately pack the most performance for their price though. The pos g80s can be had new for cheap and have NKRO and doubleshots sometimes as well as a bunch of relegendable programable keys and touchpads and card readers and things like that.

My grey-on-white keycaps set came in yesterday, just got a chance to put them one this morning.

You can see my first mech keyboard there on top left (Filco "Otaku" browns) and the one I'm switching the keycaps is Filco TKL blues:

All done!

[URL="[URL=http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y146/eddie84/OCN/Mech%20keyboard%20club/Filcos/DSC05702.jpg][IMG]http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y146/eddie84/OCN/Mech%20keyboard%20club/Filcos/th_DSC05702.jpg[/IMG][/URL]"]th_DSC05702.jpg [URL="[URL=http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y146/eddie84/OCN/Mech%20keyboard%20club/Filcos/DSC05707.jpg][IMG]http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y146/eddie84/OCN/Mech%20keyboard%20club/Filcos/th_DSC05707.jpg[/IMG][/URL]"]th_DSC05707.jpg

For those that might be interested, here's the link to group buy thread. The shipping was fast considered it came all the way from HK (took around 5 - 6 business days via DHL). One of the boxes was a little beat up but the keycaps inside were ok.

[URL="[URL=http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y146/eddie84/OCN/Mech%20keyboard%20club/key%20caps/DSC05663.jpg][IMG]http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y146/eddie84/OCN/Mech%20keyboard%20club/key%20caps/th_DSC05663.jpg[/IMG][/URL]"]th_DSC05663.jpg

The quality of the keycaps themselves are top notch. Highly recommended if you're tired of the same all black look or your keys are getting shiny. tongue.gif

Edit: some new KBC orange keycaps from mmmty:
