They do require a bit of adjustment coming off of heavier or more tactile switches, but the experience once adjusted to them is so awesome. Subtle and luxurious for lack of better words smile.gif.

I added a pic as you posted this. And great explanation subtle and luxurious. I was describing it to myself as my fingers were just "gliding" over the keyboard. They are very similar to browns IMO but just smoother. I thought I would never want a linear switch when I tried blacks. But these are just so smooth. I keep bouncing around forums just looking for something to post lol just to type on these bad boys.

Heh, that's when you know you've got a board and a switch you'll love is when you go out of your way to look for something to type biggrin.gif

keyboard kept disconnecting and becoming unresponsive whenever it was plugged in with USB. was fine with ps/2.

funny enough, i've only seen people mention this problem with mx red version of the board. i had 2 leopolds with brown switches (both white and black version) and neither of them had the problem. one came from iomania and the other came from elitekeyboards.

my leo with reds is white version.

I'm at work right now, but I just got my Xarmor U9 Plus keyboard with cherry blues. This is my first mech keyboard ever and I'm really liking it a lot. I love that it has the USB and Audio/Mic inputs, this was the perfect keyboard for me. But I do have one question. When taking off the keycaps, I noticed that there were LED's underneath them. Obviously they use the same board as the step up which had the LED backlighting. I was just wondering if there is any way to mod the LED's to come on?

Filco Majestouch 2 Cherry MX Brown

This is my first mechanical keyboard. have had it a few weeks and have been really happy with it.

I've tested it with "Cherry MX Rubber O-Ring Switch Dampeners" to dampen the sound , but thought it destroyed too much of the nice things about the Cherry MX. This is sure a personal preference

I have changed 4 keycaps with white keycaps from WASD keyboards.

I found that I don't care much for the o-ring mod either. Its not bad, but I don't mind the CLACK or feel from bottoming out.

And, I also have that color combination on my Cherry MX Black tenkeyless Filco, except the WASD and Esc keys are WASD's "Light Grey". IMO it looks very nice.
