Mmh why dont lean toward rapid or rapid-i? Rapid is Costar keyboard and rapid-i have filco components... or am I wrong? :D
What about novatouch keycaps? In future I probably want change with PBT or with customs ABS (like this: http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/index.php/products/keycap-set/88-key-iso-cherry-mx-keycap-set.html)
Ah I love brown switch, and i hate red...what about topre switch on nova?

ps: leopold fc750 (180 euros)
- fc660 (140)

Your own personal preference is different no doubt.

I lean towards topre because supposedly they are less fatiguing when compared to Cherry MX. Yep QFR has Costar stabilizers whereas the QFR-I has Cherry MX stabilizers (Filco? hmm..). I'm not sure how the 55g nova topre mash up switch is for fatigue but out of the box you get topre with purple sliders, compatible with cherry mx keysets. Which is pretty cool  :)

I read now a review about Novatouch, with new topre switch. It seems fantastic from description...:D But what about build quality? 40 euros more aren`t a problem for grab a filco...but I dont know if it`s better a filco ninja tlk or this novatouch (110 euros)
Mmmmmmmmmmmmh   :rolleyes:

If you're more comfortable with a Filco then grab the Filco :p

The Nova's build quality probably won't match Realforce, but from all I've read it is a sturdy keyboard.

I have something like 1000 post on TomsHW in keyboard section...I converted a lot of people, but it`s so hard XD

U loose my nots, I think tomorrow I will order a Novatouch :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
