Now I need to get a second one for work...
This keyboard is fantastic on the Mac. All you need to do is remap the "Alt" key to the "Command" key and you should be good. (I hardly ever use the alt key anyway, so it's not really a big deal to move it as the "Windows" key on the right.)
Also, I like the fact that the function keys F1-F12 are functional by default--you have to hold down Fn to access the media functions, which is usually the opposite with Apple keyboards.
So, this board is great! Just like every other Filco, except it has the camo pattern which is very high quality and applied perfectly.
Brown switches are my favorite, I MUCH perfer tenkeyless for mouse room, I love Filco, and I like camo. Thus... this is my favorite mechanical board. (And I have own at least a dozen)
The problem: UNLIKE most Filco boards, they decided to make the left "Windows" key a Fn key instead. I suppose most Windows users don't use the Windows key, so this may be a good thing. (It opens up media keys on the F1..F12 row) For a Mac user though, this sucks. The Fn key can't be mapped as a normal key, and there aren't any firmware hacks that I'm aware of that can fix this. (I've looked) Well, for a mac person, that's you're option key. Again, some basic Mac users may not use it, but I use it constantly in my line of work. So I remapped the capslock key to be my option key. (Was previously remapped as my control key) Boy that took some time to get used to... and I had to change it on all my other computers just so they're the same. Not ideal... but I like the keyboard, so worth it. On the bright side, the Fn does open up your F keys to do the things normally found on the top row of a mac keyboard.
Anyway, overall highly recommended.
I have no problems with the camo print as it is well done except for some reason they decided to write "multicam" on various random areas as part of the print.
This is my first mechanical keyboard so I was a bit uneasy as to what switch type to purchase. The tactile feeling on the brown switches are not so obvious if you are typing fast, especially if you are coming from a rubber dome keyboard and are used to bottoming out your keys. They are however much more responsive, and I don't feel like I have to exert as much force to get a response.
For those who don't care about creaky plastic, please do yourself a favor and pick this keyboard up. I spend 8 hours at work keyboarding away and then another 5-6 hours gaming after work. I would say a mechanical keyboard is right up there along with a dual monitor setup for someone who's on the computer as much as I am.
