The keyboard is quite heavy but that's what gives it the nice solid feel.

If you're looking for a high quality mechanical keyboard with a unique design, I think the Filco Ninja is a great choice.
Eric J.
Typing feels fantastic - I really like the Cherry MX browns a lot more than the blues.

This is the first mechanical keyboard I have ever owned. It is head, and shoulders above any computer keyboard that I've used before it.

(1) It is a heavy, sturdy unit that sits like it is bolted to the desk.
(2) The keys have such a smooth action, and every one actuates at the same point of travel as every other. [Which is about half way down.]
(3) The print on the sides of the keys is nice. It is suprisingly easy to see, and should never wear off.
(4) No gimmicks here. there are no 'extra' keys, or lights, or buttons that never get used. Just a very well made keyboard, that should last a long time, and is a pleasure to use.

My only complaints would be: (1)It's a bit noisier that the rubber dome keyboards I'm used to. (2) It does not come with a hand rest. I solved that issue by making a nice rest [that matches my desk] out of oak. (3) Using any other keyboard will never be the same again....

The Filco Majestouch 2 is a top-of-the-line mechanical keyboard utilizing Cherry MX switches. This unit in particular wields the Brown switch, which is identified by the light 45g force for actuation and the "tactile bump" that is extremely close to this actuation point, so that you have a tactile feel of the key registering. For those unfamiliar with mechanical keyboards, companies can use one of these Cherry MX keyswitch variants (most commonly the Brown, Red, Black, and Blue variants) while adding on any extra functionality to make unique keyboards. The Browns are great switches since they're some of the quieter switches (although they are still somewhat loud).

The set comes with two additional flat OS keycaps, since the keyboard itself comes with domed OS keycaps on. It also comes with a wire keycap puller, which you use if you want to replace keycaps or clean the innards after taking all the keycaps off. It also comes with a USB to PS/2 adapter, in case you would like to achieve NKRO on machines with compatible motherboards (I personally can't take advantage of this since it's hooked up to my laptop, without PS/2 input). It also comes with an extremely useful plastic cover that fits snug over the keys, which is good for keeping dust and any other dirt out of it when not the keyboard's not in use - so make sure not to throw it away.

This keyboard is great for a number of reasons. The "ninja" side-printed keycaps look very classy in italic Futura, and the side-printed aspect prevents any lettering rubbing off after constant use. Besides a single, sleek Filco logo on the upper-right hand side of the keyboard, there is no other branding on the keyboard.

Before diving into the review itself of this product I would like to address the cost of the product. When it comes to consumer products almost everything has different points of entry into that particular type of product. Cars, jewelery, and home electronics all have their entry level budget models up to their premium class luxury models. Typically as you climb this ladder you get an ever increasing price, but with this comes ever increasing craftsmanship. This very situation applies to this keyboard, it is a premium keyboard at a premium price, and for those that utilize the features of the keyboard great satisfaction is sure to be had.

The keyboard itself is built to exacting standards, and with utter precision. All corners of the unit are uniform and nicely rounded, the finish is blemish and defect free, and more importantly all the keys feel and function the same. There is absolutely no play in the keys themselves, something you will find on keyboards of lower quality, which can interfere with typing at higher rates of speed. The weight of the keyboard, substantial compared to the average keyboard, is evenly distributed and allows the large anti-skid pads on the bottom of the unit to hold firmly to even the slickest of desks.

Feature wise this keyboard has exactly what a keyboard should and nothing more. You will not find USB hubs, bind-able macro keys, or media controls on this keyboard, they have been left off in favor of a smaller footprint. You will not find any back lighting or LED lights that you can change the color of, they have been left out in favor of simplicity of design. In fact the only lights on the unit are the three blue LED's that occupy the upper right, representing your Caps Lock, Numb Lock, and Scroll Lock.

Very heavy and sturdy, feels like a product that will last. The thing with mechanical keyboards is that you have to look at them as an investment. Yes they're expensive, but a good one will probably last you for decades, like the IBM Model M keyboards from the 80s that some people are still using today. So if you keep that in mind I think the price is easier to justify. The MX Brown switches are a pleasure to type on, you tend to forget how nice they are until you have to use a rubber dome keyboard, then you find yourself wondering how you were ever able to type on non-mechanical switches. The labels on the front of the keys are nice, bought a Das keyboard before this that had problems with the laser-etched keys fading after only a couple weeks of use. So I wanted something where I wouldn't have to worry about labels wearing, but still had them for when I needed to look down and find a key. This Filco fit the bill perfectly.

Unfortunately the first one I received had a problem, the 5 key on the number pad was sticky. It was difficult to depress and slow to return after depressing it. Took the key cap off and noticed some sticky substance on the outside of the switch (flux from the manufacturing process maybe? jelly doughnut filling? who knows). So I cleaned the outside of the switch which helped a lot, but the key still felt a little sticky even after multiple cleanings. Some of that gunk was probably down inside the switch where I couldn't clean it, so I ended up having to return the keyboard. Kind of annoying that this wasn't caught in the factory considering it's a $160 keyboard, but oh well, stuff like this does happen even with high quality products. And the replacement is flawless, all the keys work as they should.
