Cons: Expensive, cheap letters, non-detachable USB cable
I 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.
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.
