Welcome to Geekhack!

Did you have any particular keyboard in mind?  Or still seeking inspiration?
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

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.
