Its been discussed a billion times, here and there, but mainly for mx browns, however, im curious if that issue is present on a Filco with Blacks, because Im planning on buying a Filco Majestouch 2 with Cherry Black switches. I dont wanna start another troll thread or something, nor do i wanna start another war between The Keyboard Experts on here.. I just want some help. Thats all.
Some people recommended me to buy a CMstorm Quickfire Rapid as it was some sort of a clone of Filco, but Im used to being a perfectionist, and as one, I always look for the best possible. The latter part brings up another question as you can imagine, is Filco the best possible board you can buy as the majority of owners/addicts/people say? Does it have any other flaws except that ugly ping?
the other options were/are CM Storm Qckfire and SS 6Gv2, but as I said, I always go for the best. It is quite expensive for me though, the Filco, especially considering I live in Bulgaria(I'm sure none of you have ever heard of that country lol), BUT I'll save as much as I need to in order to buy it, unless it has other flaws which could lead to break the deal.
So help guys.
A perfectionist is really just another term for being super-anal
Filcos are far from perfect..
EVERY mx-key-switch will ping upon the rebound course of the key strike.
Some keys might ping worse than others.
You will not hear the ping on MX-blue-switches, because the click noise that occurs right before the rebound ping is much louder than the ping; thus your temporal lobe will usually fail to resolve a quiet noise immediately after a loud one.
----the same principal is used behind MP3 lossy encoding
----This is also why you more often hear pings on Brown/Black/Red switches, because they do not have the artificial blue-click to mask the ping noise.
----But, to be clear, the ping noise is prevalent on EVERY color-type switch,, and is Never limited to a isolate bad-switches on any given keyboard.
If you WANT to hear the ping,, Put your head really close to the board,, EVERY switch will ping on the rebound
It also depends on how quickly you release the switch
---if released quickly, the rebounding stem will achieve full momentum, generating a loud ping
---if released slowly, this will essentially reduce the impulse upon impact acting on the rebounding stem, THUS, reducing ping
