To wake it up, I just press the spacebar and it comes back to life from out of its highly efficient battery-saving mode within just a few seconds. It works perfectly for me on all my devices, including Windows 7, 8.1, and 10 as well as an Apple iPad Air 2 and my Samsung Galaxy Note 4. To make it pair with your device, you just push a button on the upper-right of the keyboard with the tip of a pen or stylus.
I've been using this for several weeks now and am still on the original pair of AA Alkaline batteries supplied with the keyboard. The manufacturer claims this will run for months a set of batteries, and so far I don't have any reason to believe otherwise. When this first pair runs out, I will try out a pair of rechargeable Eneloop batteries and report back on longevity and distance. Speaking of distance, I am able to keep typing far beyond the distance that my eyes can reasonably see on a 32" 4K monitor, so no problems there!
The keyboard comes with a key extractor tool and extra keys in case you want to modify the layout of your modifier keys. That's handy!
I really like having the extra Windows Button on the right side-- this makes moving your individual windows around in Windows 7 and up nice and easy with just one hand!
There are a few features which I have not yet played with as described below:
1. There are some DIP switches accessible on the bottom of the keyboard which allow you to change certain configurations of the keyboard, such as the placement of the modifier keys. I'll update this when I've had a chance to mess around with them.
2. The keyboard also includes a USB mini-B to USB A type cable, which allows you to connect with a wire if needed. One thing I'm not sure of is whether this might also provide power to rechargeable batteries if you were to have them installed and use the wire at the same time. I suspect it doesn't, but will give it a try sometime and update my review.
The unit that I purchased came directly from the manufacturer in Japan in a matter of just 4 days. I used the expedited shipping option which greatly reduces the shipping time. It was well-packaged and arrived without a hitch. I discovered you can track the package on JapanPost.com from Japan to the U.S., and then use the same number to track the package on USPS.com once it enters the United States, and they will provide an estimated delivery day.
Overall this is a very high-quality product, solidly built, which works perfectly. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anybody who does a lot of typing and wants both the wonderful feel of a mechanical keyboard with the flexibility of wireless!
My main usage is just for work: office typing emails, etc. I narrowed my search to two types of keyboards: Matias and various Cherry MX based keyboards. Frankly the stuff on the internet didn't really tell me a whole lot on the difference between the two--they tend to get way too technical, talking about pressure and sound, activation points. It was insane... What I found was basically this: if you're like me and old enough to have worked with old Apple Macintosh's and old IBM's from the 80s and 90s, I found that Matias keyboards are like Apple keyboards (a point that they advertise) and the Cherry MX keyboards are similar to the old IBM keyboards. They're both clicky and feel wonderful to type on but the clicky noise on the Matias is a bit lower pitch, less metallic than like the Cherry MX keyboards.
This Filco is a Cherry MX Blue which was recommended for regular typing. This is a very expensive keyboard but there are a few points that help to justify that price:
- This keyboard is one of a few mechanical keyboards that is wireless. It uses Bluetooth and can pair with up to four devices. This is a huge point for me because I frequently switch between two macs and 4 other PC's.
- This keyboard is built like a tank. It's pretty heavy and although it's made mostly of plastic, it feels completely solid. I've had to return a couple of Matias's because the casing was split--not sure if the was due to shipping.
- This keyboard has a matte texture unlike the glossy black of the Matias.
- The design of this keyboard is ultra minimal, the keyboard footprint is ONLY as large as it needs to be. The Matias keyboards aren't ugly but they don't have the lovely minimalist look of the Filco.
Overall I LOVE this keyboard and wonder why it took me so long to get on board the mechanical keyboard train. I'm typing this review on the Filco now and I can't stop smiling--I love thinking back to the "retro" computer days and this keyboard really brings a lot of that nostalgia back in addition to increasing my typing accuracy and speed.
I really like the Matias keyboard too so I'm getting an Apple-specific Matias for my home iMac.
As for it's power saving feature where it turns off after 30 mins of no usage it sometimes takes 30 seconds to power back up to start typing again. Which I'm OK with, but sometimes it never wakes back up and I need to turn it off and on again or put it into pairing mode and it's a huge hassle sometimes.
I wanted to like this keyboard, there aren't many wireless mechanical keyboards on the market, and I know it wasn't designed for gaming since Bluetooth is limited. Perhaps it was a fault of my receiver? But unfortunately, I'll have to return this in favor of a more reliable 2.4 GHz RF option.
