All done!



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.



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.
This is gosu... nice color scheme man

Haha it's inspiring me to think of creative ways to customize my Filco..

I ordered my Filco wristrest a few days ago from armygroup. Does anyone know how long it usually takes for their products to ship to the US? I also have my artisan hien and deathadder BE coming in the mail so I'm super stoked. I'll make sure to snap some pics of my setup when everything arrives, of course

The more I dig into the whole mechanical keyboard thing, the more I feel like it's rather similar to my headphone hobby. It first starts with an entry level keyboard which is analogous to getting your first good pair of headphones (in my case, the JVC HA-RX700). Then you move up and buy a better keyboard that has a different feel to it (e.g. MX Blue Razer Blackwidow to a MX Brown Das Silent) and is better quality. Eventually, you have four or five keyboards sitting around, just like I have three or four headphones sitting around.

I do feel like there's a lot less variety in keyboards than there is in headphones though.

^ Those were my first pair of headphones too

IMO I think that there is a wide variety of keyboards out there to keep a hobbyist occupied for a pretty long time. Keyboards are underrated.

Many peripherals are like this. Monitors have quite a bit of variety too. Not educated on headphones really, but I could say at least the same amount.

Too bad I've not seen too many people who obsess over collecting monitors. Though if I had the money, I would.

I think you have quite a bit of variety in keyboards.

You have MX switches: Blue, black, red, clear, brown, white. Then the ML switch. The ALPS switches: Blue, White, Cream, Pink, Green, Black and a few simplified switches. Then various switches like the acer, Monterey, BS, Space Invaders. There are more I don't even know too! Plenty of variety to keep me going for a while though.
