Then you should have bought the correct keyboard to suit your needs, not just something to say you tried it.

Oh yeah, imagine the price after they add the mechanical switches.

I think you need to work on your typing skills... The whole point of mechanical keyboards (or at least, a large selling point) is that there is tactile recognition of when a key is pressed. Because of this, you don't need to "slam" keys and bottom out when you are typing, leading to a much more sensitive -- and a much faster -- typing experience. As such, your fingers should be in much better shape from using a mechanical keyboard than if you were using a non-mechanical..."if you're doin' it right!"

Oh you went out and bought an Model M, wow. The 20-25year old mechanical keyboard with buckling springs?. Wow, just wow. You do realize that there are newer keyboards that are quieter and your not supposed to slam the keys to the bottom, they active at about halfway down.

Yes Z5500's. Upgraded to real speakers (Audioengine A5's) and the difference is night and day. Z5500s are all bass and lack mids and highs. Very..muffled sounding in comparison.

I can think of only two cases in which an IBM Model M could really 'wear' on your hands. Either if you hunt and peck, in which case you'll always bottom out and get finger shock, or if you overcompensate for the greater force needed, and bottom out every key. The buckling springs are a heavy switch, and some people prefer lighter ones, but unless you were doing one of the things above then it shouldn't be "wearing your fingers to stubs".

As for noise, it's hardly that loud. But I will admit it gets annoying, and I think if I buy a new mechanical keyboard at some point I'll get a non-clicky one.

Is upgrading from a Dell mechanical keyboard to a Filco worth it?

A Dell AT101W? If that's what you have... Maybe. The Dell wasn't a great mechanical keyboard, but it's ok. But keep in mind not all Dell keyboards are mechanical.
