With the key caps being that way will it cause any issues other than cosmetic?

My Filco Cherry Blue keyboard arrived today, typing on it is just simply amazing.
post #885 of 36837
OK guys, I'd like your help. I have a Filco Majestouch 104 key blue switch. I love it. It is one of my most prized possessions (coming a strong third to my copy of the Concise Oxford English Dictionary - the greatest Christmas present ever - and the i7 that is my pride and joy; just ahead of my Casio CFX-9850GB PLUS Color Power Graphic calculator, which served me valiantly during high school) But I want a blank key keyboard. Now, I can either buy a set of blank keycaps for my Filco for $60.00AUS, or I can buy a Das Model S Ultimate for $198.00AUS. The issue with buying the keycaps is that then I won't have a keyboard with letters on it for the computer n00bs that live with me (and I love them so this matters to me). Also, Filco keycaps wear out and go shiny. But the Das is expensive. I would love to have one, and I've heard that they feel almost the same as the Filco to type on. But basically I don't want to buy one unless it is going to be a truly treasured possession that will last many, many years. So I ask you Das owners: are they really a totally flawless piece of engineering? And I ask the rest of you: what do?

Flawless? No! I've had multiple lubrication problems with mine; but both Das and Filco boards are made by Costar. (so basically, it's not a problem with Das boards in particular)

Other than that, great keyboard. Personally, while I realize it's far steeper, I'd go for the Das. If you get the Ultimate, it will have Blue switches and feel like your Filco. If you get the Ultimate Silent, it will have a considerable amount of tactility removed along with its ability to click.

The reason I say to go for the Das is a mixture of two things. The first being I wouldn't spend that much on keycaps alone. Second being, replacing the keycaps yourself could be a pain. The elongated keys have stabilizers underneath them, and if you're as awful as me you'll end up breaking at least one of them.

That's my personal opinion, though. Lots of people remove them easily. <_<

It's made by Costar who makes the CST-104 which is the foundation for the Filco Majestouch, and every time I see the Model S compared to the Majestouch, it seems like the Model S is said to be superior in quality.

So I say that for the love of these computer n00bs, it seems to be worth the money to get the Model S Ultimate just to have both!

Or I suppose an alternative could be that you get the $60 set of keycaps and then get a low cost rubber dome. But then they'd have to use a rubber dome keyboard. Bleh. So I hope you don't go that route.
It's a computer!

I think the only reason people say that is because the Das has lasered keys, but of course it has been established multiple times that the keys on the Das are terrible.
