I hate to post another "help me choosing a mechanical keyboard question" but I can't decide what to buy, my two options are:

Filco Majestouch-2 (Cherry MX Browns) now, then Blue Keycaps from WASD later - £114 + ~£30

or

Custom keyboard from WASD with a custom colour scheme - ~$190

I know the quality of Filco's are meant to be excellent, but I'm not familiar with the WASD boards nearly as much.

If anyone could help me out I'd greatly appreciate it, thanks as always!

Same board here, no such problem for me.

I missed your post until the reply above. I had the Trigger and had a defective unit. Both the caps and scroll lock lights lit together regardless of which key was pushed. I also had other issues that were more a lack of love from the company. Still I wouldn't be surprised if you have a defective unit. Have you tried a different USB port on the computer and also not going through a hub. Not all ports are created equally. It is drawing more than typical power so that could be an issue. Are you inside the return privileges of the seller? Good luck,if you have to RMA with CM that's a big box to ship.

Nice! I have a couple of questions. Is it one of the Max Keyboards? By the keys it looks like a cousin of my Durandal. The photo with the backlight on seems to show the whole top half of the blue keys lit up. Is that how your eye sees it or is it more subtle? Which keys did you order specifically. Would lettering etched on those keys light through like the OEM keys, do you know?
Thanks and enjoy them!

Someone told me new Ducky Shine 2 keyboards are coming out? Is that true? If it is, should I wait or just get a Ducky Shine now?

Hey, yeah it basically lights up the whole top half when the LED settings are all the way up, but when I turn it down to half it's a bit more subtle. The key caps are the engraved ones key's w,a,s,d, made by WASDKeyboards, but judging by the key caps themselves I think the LEDs would shine through bout the same. The keyboard is Xarmor, more specifically the U9BL with cherry mx browns. biggrin.gif
