My SGI Granite after a 4 hour retrobrite treatment in the South Florida sun.

All of those fancy retrobrite recipes are bs. There's no need for xanthan gum or glycerin. All I used was 40 vol creme developer from Sally's Beauty supply ($12 for a gallon...enough to do several boards) and sunshine.

Here are the relevant proof of my Ducky / Filco ownership, so that I can link the membership sheet to this post (took a pic of the Ducky I use at home, I use the FIlco at work so I just shot the receipt)





I went to buy a Ducky and after exploring dozens of shops without success, I stumbled upon a small one carrying several brands (Ducky, Cherry, Filco, Razer, Steelseries, etc...)

I was looking for the 9008SII with blue switch/white LED but they had only the blue LED one. Nevertheless a I took it but wanted to have a look at the Filco. It was just crying for me to buy it, so damn sexy...But backlit is a must for my personnal keyboard as I type a lot in the dark. Grabbed the Ducky, went out for a bit of shopping, went back to the shop and took the Filco too. I use it at work and it is simply the best feeling keyboard I've owned so far, as someone said on OCN, "sex for my fingers".

My ultimate keyboard would be a Filco Majestouch ninja with white LED backlit keys and blue switch, just thinking about it makes me smile with delight...

Since when? I've had my K90 for about 4 months now, and it's been nothing but a pleasure to use.

Hey guys I just bought my first mechanical, a Ducky year of the Dragon, with cherry MX browns, and yellow LEDs. Super pumped! Im a little apprehensive about losing the ten keys, but I'm sure I'll get used to it soon enough. Always wanted the tenkeys on the right side of the mouse anyway, so if its an issue I will just add a keypad.

I'll be filling out the form once I get it, and will post some pics as well. Kinda bummed TankGuys didn't have the wrist wrest, was hoping to get that too

I had the K60, and I found that it was not worth the money considering it was not entirely mechanical, and the fact that the key set is physically smaller than other typical keyboards made typing on it feel weird. Also, not having a shell and the manner in which the switches are attached to the board made it feel weird. My Filco Ninja and Corsair K60 feel like totally different keyboards. I think the fact that the filco's switches are sauldered firmly onto a steel plate makes for smoother actuation, vs the Corsair's which feels...I don't know how to describe it....as if there is artificial resisistance from the switch actuating imperfectly. As if it was "rusty".
