So far so good, the bright lights don't really bother me . Although I don't want to post a formal review of my experience with it until a week or so after using it - I just got it yesterday. The real deciding factor is going to be: is it THAT much better than using a regular M or something along those lines to warrant its $150 price tag?

Couple quick things:

If you have a heavy hand like me the cherry blacks are surprisingly pleasant to type on

The integrated sloped palm rest "shroud" or w/e you want to call it is really comfortable

Yeah I wish Filcos came with something like that. Instead I ordered the leather Filco rest. Not cheap but it fits the tenkeyless. If I had a full size I think I would of tried to get a Steelseries one.

I had a similar issue when I had my Tenkeyless cherry brown - when I raised that question on geekhack, folks highly recommended the official Filco leather rest despite its price tag. Again though, this is one of my problems with elitekeyboards, great retailer but they do not offer a satisfaction guarantee policy (guessing because of the company size and the already small margin they make on the sales) so if you don't personally find the rest comfortable, you have to resell it at a loss

This camera is ****.







It can't focus on anything closer than about two feet. Keyboard still rocks, though.

*sigh* only 6 more months...

I just got my Filco with Cherry MX Blue switches! I'm loving it so far. Have to be honest though, it's pretty loud, but the clicks are very satisfying, haha.

Add me to the list please! I will add pics tomorrow! Thanks!

You think the blues are loud... Try the White Alps version... LOL...

It makes my blues sound quiet compared to it. Not only is it loud, it also requires some heavy pressure for actuation, making your fingers and arms tired after about two pages of continuous typing.
