clownfart: I see it too, but it's an illusion created by those things in the corners. But when looking straight down into the keycap, I don't see it. they look just as thin near the top of the key as they are at the bottom.

Oh, oh, me too! I HAD myself a 1993 Model M, but due to a bad spacebar I got rid of it... Now I have an ABS M! Once you go click there is no going back!

Just ordered a Filco Majestouch Tenkeyless with Cherry MX Blues, I was originally going to just get a Zero for half the price but after reading about some of the issues it shares with the M1 I figured I may aswel do it properly or not at all.. argh I hope I don't regret spending £100+ on a keyboard. This will be my first mechanical keyboard btw.

You will have no regrets after you sit down and use it for a day.

A simple comparison is to use the keyboard for a day, then switch back to your old keyboard. You won't use the old keyboard long, that's for sure.

I have a Filco Majestouch Blue, and I agree that it is a lovely keyboard and I do not regret spending nearly two days pay on it. BUT I have an old Honeywell SpaceMate that I scabbed from the Computer Science Students' Club at uni - it is ancient and beige and has rubber dome keys and it is still a real pleasure to type on, IMO. Just sayin' that not all rubber domes are horrid. Guess they don't make 'em like they used to...

Nice! Your only regret will be that you didn't order it sooner!!

Quite true. The rubber dome switch type used on that board is probably the more expensive style where there's an individual rubber dome for each key - probably like this one:

I don't think I'll even bother trying my G15 v2 again when the filco arrives tomorrow, the G15 is terrible for typing, single key presses always register as double

It just arrived

Ordered at 3:30pm yesterday and arrived at 9:15am this morning, great service from www.keyboardco.com, I only just got home so I haven't used it much but I'm loving it so far, just a little weird getting used to a smaller keyboard, I keep putting my hands in the wrong place.. I really like the MX Blues, though my desk seems to make them sound louder when they bottom out, I think I'll have to find some kind of mat or whatever to put under the keyboard so I don't drive everybody insane

Just got my Filco Majestouch Tactile Touch "Otaku" NKRO Cherry Brown keyboard today. It's absolutely amazing. I'm not used to it just yet, but my initial impressions are positive, and I know that they feel like it can keep me going when typing up reports and definitely be able to handle the abuse from a gaming session. Heck, I feel that my typing has improved because of the feel of this keyboard!

Definitely worth the investment. Too bad they don't offer mods for laptops =3

You could theoretically mod a Cherry G84-4100 with the low-profile Cherry ML switches to fit in a laptop.

Theoretically.
