Customer Reviews

Fan-Freakin'-Tastic I've owned Leopold tenkeyless keyboards with Cherry MX Blue and Brown key switches. I stayed away from MX Blacks because of so many users saying that they're not good for straight typing. Wrong! The MX Blacks are excellent for typists who have a heavy key stroke. Touch typists who have a shallow key stroke may prefer Cherry MX Blues or Browns for their lighter required down force to actuate each key stroke.The matte finish key caps feel really nice. I have read that the key caps are made of ABS plastic--for me the feel is preferable to PBT, but this is a matter of personal preference only. Also, the 'bump' on the F and J keys is easily picked up when getting back to the home row, for those of us who seldom look at the keyboard.Cherry MX Blacks do produce a thud-like sound re audible feedback. I, by years of habit and first typing on typewriters way back, make a full key stroke when I type. This linear switch has no click to it, but the thud-like sound when the key bottoms out is quite pleasant. It sounds like solid plastic on plastic--a good sound by my standard. If the keys are actuated with a lighter touch, they make a audible sound that's easily recognizable as a full key stroke whether or not you 'bottom out' the key. Like all Cherry MX switches, the key actuates at 2mm and bottoms at 4mm, perfectly acceptable. These Black key switches require a bit more down force to actuate, which, for me, means there is less likelihood of accidental key strikes if your fingers 'tip' or 'graze' keys apart from the target key.The learning curve, unless your coming off an old Remington 'mill' from the 1960s, may take a bit of time. But if you're used to mechanical keyboards, the learning curve will be considerably shorter. I just received this keyboard this morning and the more I use it, the better the typing experience. Did I mention how much I like this keyboard with Cherry MX Black key switchers?I had been using a Leopold tenkyeless, a good keyboard for the money, about $40 less than the Filco. However, in my observation of the two boards, I prefer Filco. With this said, in all fairness, I've not owned a Leopold with Cherry MX Black key switches. Nonetheless, I prefer Filco's key caps. Key caps can cost between $30 (cheaper ones) to $50 plus for better quality caps. Perhaps this attends to part of the difference in price.If you are not used to Black key switches, your weaker fingers may need to some time to adjust and build some strength to handle the MX Black switches. I had felt some wrist discomfort initially, I raised the legs but they increased the KB's pitch a bit too much for me; so I resolved the issue by raising the keyboard with two 1/4" self-adhesive pads (Lowe's or Home Depot) place over the rubber feet. No more wrist issues. Everyone has preferences with respect to keyboard pitch.I'll write updates if necessary. My one-week old Leopold with Cherry MX Blue key switches is now officially 'boxed'; and the one with MX Browns I gave to a family member. This Filco with its Cherry MX Blacks is my favorite keyboard to date. I've owned many KBs: Cooler Master QuickFire Rapid, Dell, HP, Logitech, Keytronics, Sony, and some off-brand KBs. And for my typing style this Filco simply outperforms the others I've used. There is no reason to look askance at Cherry MX Black key switches if your primary use for a keyboard is typing rather than gaming. This may be a terrific gaming key switch, I don't know, but I can tell you from my experience is a fantastic switch for typing.I have to thank Scott H. for his assistance as I was considering this keyboard. His review and his discussion comments with me attended to my questions/concerns and helped me to make the decision to try this KB--now I own it! Thank you, Scott.UpdateI have moved on to a Realforce 87UB/55-gram keyboard. Realforce uses Topre key switches. The feel is exceptional, different from the Cherry MX switches I've owned. After using this Realforce for six months or so, I find it preferable to MX Black key switches. Also, Realforce's keyboards have quiet key switches and there is internal 'pinging' noise that I found became worse over time with the Filco M2. 5Fantastic, no-frills mechanical keyboard with crappy caps that you'll likely want to replace in the future After my beloved Logitech keyboard died, I decided to switch to a mechanical keyboard and see what all of the fuss was about. I'm a software developer, and asked some friends for recommendations. The Filco was highly regarded for its minimalist look and quality build. Other options were models from Corsair, WASD, and Das Keyboard. I ultimately decided on the Filco because of its no-frills design, heavy weight, and virtually unanimous rave reviews. I absolutely made the right choice.The keyboard is heavy, perhaps not quite as heavy as a model M or any keyboard of that era, but it's heavy by today's standards. I really pound away on this thing some days, and it never moves, not a millimeter. It feels solid as a rock - almost as if it's built into my desk. The quality rubber pads on the bottom likely help as well.There's not much to note about the design. It's minimalist. There's virtually no bezel. It's just keys. The Filco name is on the bottom right of the keyboard, facing you, beneath the arrow keys. Looking down on the keyboard, there's no branding.Using the keyboard is obviously a pleasure. This should probably be credited to the Cherry MX switches, and not necessarily the Filco, but that's coming from someone without much experience with other mechanical keyboards. It is an absolute pleasure to type on, though. If you've never used a mechanical keyboard before, it will ruin you forever. My MacBook feels like a children's toy now, and I hate typing on it more than I did before getting the Filco. Keyboards that I thought were good, like an older Logitech (membrane) gaming keyboard that I have, feel likely mushy garbage now.My only real complaint about this keyboard is its keycaps. Others commented on their low quality as well, so I wasn't surprised. Even with the negative reviews, though, I was surprised that my Shift key is half worn off after just about a month of use. And it was a light month, too, since I bought the keyboard right before the holidays. The caps are easy enough to replace, though, so it doesn't bother me. I'll probably wait a bit and replace all of them at once. I didn't bother docking a star for this since the keyboard is so wonderful in every other way. But be warned: the caps are cheap and apparently wear quickly.If you're looking for replacement caps, the ones that WASD sells fit perfectly on the Filco. But be warned: their black doesn't quite match the black keys that come on the Filco (you can see this in the picture I attached). They're not too far off, but enough to notice if you're looking for it.If you're a Mac user, WASD sells Command keys and a set of Function keys if you'd prefer a more native look. They're cheap enough, and very easy to replace. My escape key, function keys, command keys, and arrow keys are all from WASD. 5Replaced my Das Keyboard and I'm not looking back I was looking for a tenkeyless replacement for my Das Keybaord. I liked the Cherry MX keys on the Das and after trying and returning a Matias TKL board I decided to give the Filco a try. They aren't cheap but they have a repuation for quality. I hoped that it would feel as good as the Das but just take up a bit less space.I was pleasantly surprised to find that the build quality is outstanding and the key feel is noticeably better than the Das, even though they both use MX Blue switches. Where the Das has a little bit of play in the keys, the Filco keys are rock solid with a more even, controlled key travel. The sound is a little deeper, less pingy, and the case is hefty and without any flex at all. Given the choise between this and a Das, even ignoring the keyboard size, this is undoubtedly the better keyboard.My only complaint is that the ink on the keys is raised more than on any other key caps I've ever encountered. It's actually a noticeable feeling on your finger tips. If I were to buy this again I'd opt for the one with the blank key tops and the letters printed on the front of the keys. 5Nice mechanical keyboard with decent tactile response; a bit on the expensive side Pros: Great tactile feedback, small footprint,Cons: Expensive, cheap letters, non-detachable USB cableI own several mechanical keyboards, and this is my favorite so far. I started off with Cherry MX blue switches, but quickly decided I needed something quieter but with the same feedback. The brown switches are not as loud but work just as well. I chose the tenkeyless version to compact my workspace, and while sometimes I do miss the number pad, it's fine most of the time. This keyboard is solid and sturdy. The rubber feet are big and hold the keyboard in place.It is pretty expensive compared to other mechanical keyboards on the market, but there are definitely more expensive ones out there. The printing on the keycaps isn't the best, and after moderate use I can see some of the letters start to fade. I'm not sure how it's printed on, but it's definitely not laser etched. I would have opted for the one with blank keycaps, but already have a Das keyboard so I decided to get the printed version. I would have liked to see a detachable USB cable since more expensive keyboards have that feature.Whether you're a veteran of mechanical keyboards or looking for your first one, the Majestouch will not disappoint. It is a bit on the expensive side, but you do get what you pay for. If you haven't used a mechanical keyboard before, then do yourself a favor and make the switch, especially if your job requires a lot of typing. This keyboard might lack some of the more modern features of gaming keyboards such as LED backlighting, extra function keys, customizable hotkeys, or media buttons, but I prefer my keyboards to be simple and devoid from superfluous stuff. I highly recommend this for anyone who is looking to upgrade their typing experience. 4My favorite keyboard I really wanted something 1) wireless 2) mechanical and 3) compact. I settled for 2/3 and got this keyboard after trying out the Filco Majestouch Air with lackluster results. For those debating between switches, going with the cherry/red is a safe bet. The MX cherry switches are much quieter than the click versions (about the same as a regular keyboard) and the key resistance is comfortable for fast typing. If you have roommates or don't want to drive the people around you insane I highly suggest NOT getting the click keys. Some pros and cons about this keyboard compared to others I've owned:Filco Majestouch MINILA Air 67 Key Click Action Bluetooth Keyboard+Smaller, wireless, dip switches for customizing keys.-Poor reception not as good as USB, learning curve on keyboard layout.Razer Marauder StarCraft II Gaming Keyboard+More sturdy construction, backlit keys, softer key material-Wider chasis takes up more space, center LED is way too bright, tacky brandingUnicomp Classic 101 Black Buckling Spring USB+Unique, classic design, cheap-Much larger, much heavierMicrosoft Wireless keyboard 3000+Wireless, media buttons-Not mechanical, large desk footprintMicrosoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000+More comfortable typing position, media buttons-Not mechanical, large desk footprintDELL USB L-10 Keyboard+Basic, smallest chasis-Not mechanical, full-sized keyboard 5Keyboard perfection. When I first got interested in mechanical keyboards, I bought a lower end model because I thought "mechanical is mechanical." They are not all the same. The first one I bought was a Cooler Master which got fried by a USB hub that wasn't hooked up right. That one was okay but it didn't last long enough for me to get used to it. The one I bought to replace that was a Lolita Spyder 87. It seemed fine for the few months I had it. It had Kailh switches which I, at the time, seemed very similar to the Cooler Master's Cherry switches. I was looking for a discreet mechanical to take to work that didn't scream "gamer keyboard" or stand out from my coworkers'. I took a chance on the Filco, and it has changed everything I felt about my previous keyboards. Using this keyboard is as much of an improvement as it was from going from a cheap chiclet style keyboard to the Lolita Spyder. It is that good. The keys are buttery smooth. My fingers easily glide across the keys and each stroke is the perfect weight. Bear in mind, the previous two keyboards, as well as this one, have all been brown switches, so it's surprising the difference was so noticeable. Two big things to note with this keyboard is its lack of bells and whistles, like media keys, and it has a fixed non-braided cable. I don't mind because the design is all the more modern and elegant because it's so minimal. I like the one at work so much I bought another one for home. My final advice would be to invest a little when buying a keyboard because it makes sense to invest where you spend your time. This one is an excellent investment. 5Outstanding design, layout and product quality. Since this is my second attempt at buying a mechanical key keyboard I felt compelled to give this review. This time I got it right. The Filco Majestouch-2 is the best keyboard I have ever used. My first attempt at a mechanical keyboard was a Steelseries I bought about two years ago. Despite being an otherwise quality product, it had a sticking space bar and a delete key that was small (only the size of one key). Despite my best effort, I could not get used to a keyboard with those flaws. That brings us back to the Majestouch-2 keyboard. The keys are smooth as silk, even better than the steelseries keys. It has a larger delete key, and a space bar that works effectively. It is small, so it takes us less space on my desk (very noticeable), and still has full sized keys. Typing on the Majestiuch-2 is a breeze as I am very comfortable typing and have no issues distracting me. I highly recommend the Filco Majestouch-2 keyboard. It surpassed all my expectations. 5Best work keyboard I bought this as my second mechanical keyboard, and let me tell you, this is worth the price. My other keyboard is a CM Storm Quickfire Rapid with MX Browns, which was around 80. There's something that just doesn't feel quite as premium with the CM. The stabilizers on the Filco are next-level good, and typing on this, even with the same switches, feels much much better. I got this as my work keyboard, and it blends right in at the office, no crazy gamer logos, it just looks like your average keyboard. The keycaps, although ABS, are really nice. The curve on them fits your fingertips amazingly. And as a side note, I've seen other people noting that they hear a "ping" on certain keys, I have not heard what they're talking about at all, so just something to keep in mind. This keyboard is pricey, but if you have it, please go for it. 5A joy to use, and extremely solid What the description doesn't tell you is that this is not just a keyboard. In a pinch, you can use it for many other purposes--need to clobber a burglar in the middle of the night? Clock him with this and he won't be getting up again. Building a deck but forgot your framing hammer? This is your baby.Believe me when I say this thing is solidly built. It's the kind of thick, hard plastic that those gigantic clicky IBM keyboards used to be made out of, and there is no twist or flex at all. Feels like it'll last a lifetime. I was also pleased to find that, when I disassembled mine, there is a thick steel plate that the switches are mounted to, not just a PCB.Of course, you buy it to type, and that it does well. It is extremely loud and clicky, which may be a problem if you share a space with someone who hates noises. They key switches are Cherry MX Blues, the advantage of which is that the "click" they make when actuated is not just heard, but felt through the fingers. For me at least, this cuts down on typos, because I can't fail to notice if I don't strike a key.All in all, of the various FIlco keyboards, this is the one I'd pick. It comes with pleasant blue LEDs for the caps lock and scroll lock keys, and it should last you a lifetime. If you're a geek like me, you can deck this thing out in various aftermarket parts--I've seen metal housings for sale, and I'm typing this on a set of "retro" Commodore 64 styled keys I bought for it.Lastly, I should note that this is NOT spill resistant! It's well-built enough that you can probably save it from a minor spill--but I'm on my second one after the first lost a fight with a can of Rolling Rock. While it did work after taking a bath, the keys were sticky forever after. 5The best keyboard I have ever used. As a longtime user and fan of mechanical keyboards, I can say that this Filco TKL is the best one I have ever used. The model I'm using has Cherry MX Brown switches (tactile / not clicky / light actuation force).First things first: if you're unfamiliar with mechanical keyboards, it's probably worth a bit of your time to do some reading on Cherry switches, so you know what you're getting into. As far as downsides go, even the "quiet" keyboards, like the browns and reds, aren't really quiet like a laptop keyboard or a keyboard that would come with most computers. They've got an unmistakable clacking sound as you type. In certain circumstances, the noise could pose a problem, but it's not not like machine-gun fire or anything.Now, specifically, the Filco is a very heavy TKL (tenkeyless - no number pad on the right), weighing probably a couple pounds. The legends on the keys are very nice looking, quite readable, and are top-printed. Except, that is, for the side printing on the "Print Screen / Sys Rq" and "Pause / Break" keys.All in all, this is a very basic keyboard. It doesn't have any USB ports on it, nor audio jacks. It's like a great quality chef's knife. It does one thing very, very well, without any frills or fuss. If you want a great, pure typing experience, there is no better keyboard to buy. 5

The first one I bought was a Cooler Master which got fried by a USB hub that wasn't hooked up right. That one was okay but it didn't last long enough for me to get used to it. The one I bought to replace that was a Lolita Spyder 87. It seemed fine for the few months I had it. It had Kailh switches which I, at the time, seemed very similar to the Cooler Master's Cherry switches. I was looking for a discreet mechanical to take to work that didn't scream "gamer keyboard" or stand out from my coworkers'. I took a chance on the Filco, and it has changed everything I felt about my previous keyboards. Using this keyboard is as much of an improvement as it was from going from a cheap chiclet style keyboard to the Lolita Spyder. It is that good. The keys are buttery smooth. My fingers easily glide across the keys and each stroke is the perfect weight. Bear in mind, the previous two keyboards, as well as this one, have all been brown switches, so it's surprising the difference was so noticeable. Two big things to note with this keyboard is its lack of bells and whistles, like media keys, and it has a fixed non-braided cable. I don't mind because the design is all the more modern and elegant because it's so minimal. I like the one at work so much I bought another one for home. My final advice would be to invest a little when buying a keyboard because it makes sense to invest where you spend your time. This one is an excellent investment. 5Outstanding design, layout and product quality. Since this is my second attempt at buying a mechanical key keyboard I felt compelled to give this review. This time I got it right. The Filco Majestouch-2 is the best keyboard I have ever used. My first attempt at a mechanical keyboard was a Steelseries I bought about two years ago. Despite being an otherwise quality product, it had a sticking space bar and a delete key that was small (only the size of one key). Despite my best effort, I could not get used to a keyboard with those flaws. That brings us back to the Majestouch-2 keyboard. The keys are smooth as silk, even better than the steelseries keys. It has a larger delete key, and a space bar that works effectively. It is small, so it takes us less space on my desk (very noticeable), and still has full sized keys. Typing on the Majestiuch-2 is a breeze as I am very comfortable typing and have no issues distracting me. I highly recommend the Filco Majestouch-2 keyboard. It surpassed all my expectations. 5Best work keyboard I bought this as my second mechanical keyboard, and let me tell you, this is worth the price. My other keyboard is a CM Storm Quickfire Rapid with MX Browns, which was around 80. There's something that just doesn't feel quite as premium with the CM. The stabilizers on the Filco are next-level good, and typing on this, even with the same switches, feels much much better. I got this as my work keyboard, and it blends right in at the office, no crazy gamer logos, it just looks like your average keyboard. The keycaps, although ABS, are really nice. The curve on them fits your fingertips amazingly. And as a side note, I've seen other people noting that they hear a "ping" on certain keys, I have not heard what they're talking about at all, so just something to keep in mind. This keyboard is pricey, but if you have it, please go for it. 5A joy to use, and extremely solid What the description doesn't tell you is that this is not just a keyboard. In a pinch, you can use it for many other purposes--need to clobber a burglar in the middle of the night? Clock him with this and he won't be getting up again. Building a deck but forgot your framing hammer? This is your baby.Believe me when I say this thing is solidly built. It's the kind of thick, hard plastic that those gigantic clicky IBM keyboards used to be made out of, and there is no twist or flex at all. Feels like it'll last a lifetime. I was also pleased to find that, when I disassembled mine, there is a thick steel plate that the switches are mounted to, not just a PCB.Of course, you buy it to type, and that it does well. It is extremely loud and clicky, which may be a problem if you share a space with someone who hates noises. They key switches are Cherry MX Blues, the advantage of which is that the "click" they make when actuated is not just heard, but felt through the fingers. For me at least, this cuts down on typos, because I can't fail to notice if I don't strike a key.All in all, of the various FIlco keyboards, this is the one I'd pick. It comes with pleasant blue LEDs for the caps lock and scroll lock keys, and it should last you a lifetime. If you're a geek like me, you can deck this thing out in various aftermarket parts--I've seen metal housings for sale, and I'm typing this on a set of "retro" Commodore 64 styled keys I bought for it.Lastly, I should note that this is NOT spill resistant! It's well-built enough that you can probably save it from a minor spill--but I'm on my second one after the first lost a fight with a can of Rolling Rock. While it did work after taking a bath, the keys were sticky forever after. 5The best keyboard I have ever used. As a longtime user and fan of mechanical keyboards, I can say that this Filco TKL is the best one I have ever used. The model I'm using has Cherry MX Brown switches (tactile / not clicky / light actuation force).First things first: if you're unfamiliar with mechanical keyboards, it's probably worth a bit of your time to do some reading on Cherry switches, so you know what you're getting into. As far as downsides go, even the "quiet" keyboards, like the browns and reds, aren't really quiet like a laptop keyboard or a keyboard that would come with most computers. They've got an unmistakable clacking sound as you type. In certain circumstances, the noise could pose a problem, but it's not not like machine-gun fire or anything.Now, specifically, the Filco is a very heavy TKL (tenkeyless - no number pad on the right), weighing probably a couple pounds. The legends on the keys are very nice looking, quite readable, and are top-printed. Except, that is, for the side printing on the "Print Screen / Sys Rq" and "Pause / Break" keys.All in all, this is a very basic keyboard. It doesn't have any USB ports on it, nor audio jacks. It's like a great quality chef's knife. It does one thing very, very well, without any frills or fuss. If you want a great, pure typing experience, there is no better keyboard to buy. 5
