I wasn't sure whether to get red or brown switches being that this keyboard would be used exclusively for typing at work, but so far I have been very happy with the red switches. I definitely noticed more typos than normal for the first few weeks because of how light and linear the red switches are, but now that I've adjusted to them I think I make less mistakes than ever before. It is pretty easy to bottom-out the reds (which makes a lot of noise) but the silky-smooth, light, airy key presses feel so superior to rubber domes I've simply decided to work on typing lighter. I also installed 40A-L rubber o-rings to help quiet my bad-habit of bottoming out keys and they made a world of difference.
The minimalist, professional looking design is perfect for my desk at work. I appreciate the absence of gaudy or flashy backlighting and media/macro keys like many other mechanical boards come standard with. After switching from a full-size to a tenkeyless board I can unequivocally say I will never use a full-size again. It took almost no time at all to train myself to be just as fast with the home row number keys as I was with the tenkey pad. The trade-off in ergonomics is well worth it in my opinion. I reach from the home row keys to my mouse way more often than I ever used the tenkey pad.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the keycap material. The keycaps are ABS plastic and begin to shine/wear much faster than I would have liked. After 2 months of moderate to heavy usage my caps are already starting to lose their texture.Read more ›
This red ninja has that Otaku look but with hints! Pinnacle of keyboard technology. Well, I like my filco more than my topre anyway and both vastly more than my model Ms. Typing, writing, has been a large part of my life for a long time..
Goodluck on finding yours.
My only complaint is I have no idea how one would use the key puller to take off the space bar or enter key/shift/backspace keys there came no English instructions on using the key puller. Also I was under the impression Filco keyboards were made in Japan but this keyboard was built in Taiwan. Also the cord is not very long and not replaceable as with the CM Quick Fire. I have been using this for a day so I can not attest to its durability.
This is my first red switch board, and I can honestly say I prefer Cherry MX red switches over Cherry MX blue for everything including typing, I am not disappointed with my purchase despite the hefty price. This thing is built solid like an exotic Belgian assault rifle.
This keyboard uses Cherry MX Red switches. The longer keys (like the spacebar) have wire stabilizers. The end result is beautiful, soft actuation on every key (unlike, for example, a Ducky Shine II, which has a 'spongier' feeling spacebar/backspace keys due to using Cherry MX Black stabilizers).
Cherry MX Reds are usually marketed as "gamer switches".. and I can attest to them being extremely comfortable through hours of gaming.
Prior to having this keyboard, I used a Mionix Zibal 60, which uses Cherry MX Black switches.. the other "gaming switch". I found the Black switches to be extremely effective for gaming, but tiresome for typing. And because most of the games, if not all, that I play have some form of chat component, I decided to try out the Reds. I'll never buy another color of Cherry MX switch again.
Back to the Filco. This Filco is extremely well-built. It is solid, heavy, and the keys don't wobble at all. You can definitely tell within seconds of typing on it that you're dealing with a very high-quality product. I have no doubt that this keyboard will last a lifetime.
Filcos are notorious for being expensive.. but when you consider how long they last and the quality put into them, they are well worth the added cost.
