Why I'm returning my Filco...
« on: Mon, 16 April 2018, 14:47:42 »
I'm returning my brand new Filco Majestouch 2 (Cherry Blues) after only 3 days. I'm just not that impressed. I currently have a Rosewill RK-9000v2 (also cherry blue), and honestly, I'd much rather type on it than the Filco. I've noticed that the Filco Blues feel much "heavier" and "springier" than on the Rosewill for some reason. My fingers get tired only after a few minutes on the Filco. The Rosewill Blues feel much smoother and lighter. I understand this could be due to different switch "batches" but I'm not buying that. For all intents and purposes, the keyboards are essentially the same, and I'd argue that the Rosewill is nicer: detachable cable, media keys, metal outer case, slightly nicer keycaps, etc. Even the Rosewill packaging is nicer. I know there's been some complaints about the usb port on the Rosewill, but I've never had a problem.

Now don't get my wrong, the Filco is built like a tank for sure. I know that Filco's have been touted for their build quality, but honestly, I don't think the apparent higher build quality makes it worth twice as much as the Rosewill. 

I really wanted to like it because of it's legendary status, but I just can't. Of course, this is my opinion and others may have had different experiences. Anyone else have a similar experience though?
