Yeah, I saw the disassembly of it at some site, might have been geekhack.

Speaking of, I saw your N52 mod on geekhack, nice job, too bad bunnyhopping is disabled on most servers in source now frown.gif

Right now its gonna run me 200 dollars for the filco plus shipping to the usa at keyboardco.com, at this point its sort of insane to pay that much for a keyboard (though I am considering it), if anyone knows of somewhere else I can get it for cheaper please let me know.

Thanks,

You might as well get a realforce if you're going to spend that much.

I am not too thrilled about their hybrid switches... Would rather get a filco tbh :/

The gaming nerd inside me is telling me to get the blackwidow ultimate if I'm going to spend this much, but I have a feeling I will be happier with the filco.

The Topre switches compare very favorably with Cherry Browns. AFAIK, most people who have tried both prefer the Topre.

Contrary to what the thread title says, I have ordered a blackwidow ultimate from newegg.

Here is my reasoning:
1. Its not a bad board, hell I might even be more than happy with it, I like the backlighting on my blue g15.
2. I actually get to try out cherry mx blue switches (and a mechanical switch... period) to see if I even like them.
3. Newegg's return policy is pretty good, If I don't like it I can return it.

I do have to say, I was thinking about this beautiful keyboard, if not to type on but to hang from the wall...

Edit: That keyboard doesnt appear to have NKRO... You would think...

Patiently waiting on UPS... not to mention MLK day delaying things...

You should probably change the title and the first post then lol. I read through this and ready to say go to ArmyGroup and order it. I got a Filco in a week from them for $160.00 and they have great customer service and it was easy to navigate using Google Chrome.

Hope you change your mind on the Razer...
