  • New tenkeyless board

    Hi,

    I currently use a Filco Majestouch 2 with Cherry Blues. I do really like it, but I primarily use my computer for FPS gaming and the odd bit of typing here and there (mainly forums and emails etc...).

    But, I find my Majestouch 2 with numpad takes up more space than i'd like, especially when playing FPS games. I am looking for something that would be a good tenkeyless board, whilst being an allrounder (for gaming/typing). I'm not fussy on RGB.

    I have had a look at a few boards:
    1. Logitech G Pro = Uses a blue style switch? Not sure if this is really that good for FPS gaming?
    2. Corsair K65 Lux = uses Cherry Reds. I'm not familiar with these switches and how they feel? Looks like a solid board?
    3. Corsair K65 RapidFire = Seems to be good for gaming, but probably not enjoyable to type on.
    4. Filco Majestouch 2 TenKeyless = Seems like a solid option. Available with either silent-reds, brown or blue. Silent red good for gaming, might be better as have kids on the way and prefer not to wake them!
    I guess there are a number of perhaps smaller keyboard manufacturers that may fit the bill here. I am not aware of a lot of them, so i'd like some advice.

    One key important feature: Board must be available in UK layout. Need muh double height enter key.

    Heard some great things about the Filco Majestouch 2 TenKeyless, been looking at reviews as I have been interested in replacing my keyboard as im still using my Ducky which is nice but super loud lol.

    Did you have a maximum budget ?

      Yeah, I spoke to some friends and may seem to recommend it paired with browns for all rounder duty!

      I ideally don't want to exceed £120. I'd be selling my current board to help offset. I am contemplating to drive down to The Keyboard Co tomorrow.

        My daily driver is a Filco Majestouch 2 TKL w/ Browns and Double Shot PBT caps.
        I also have a Max Keyboard Blackbird with Browns and a Cooler Master Quick Fire TK with Browns and white backlight that I use at work.

        Of the three the Filco is the nicest to type on, but I do like the hybrid layout of the Quick Fire TK. Previously I had a full size Filco, and it was a great board for many years. I only retired it to save a little space, and I have a separate numpad that I use when necessary. The Blackbird is a fine board, but the blue back light drove me nuts.

          Thanks for the advice. So I went down to KeyBoard Co's shop here in the UK and I picked up the following after testing out the switches.

          It's a Filco Majestouch Ninja with Silent Red switches. I actually really enjoyed them and it was nice not having them make a huge amount of noise. I felt even the browns were loud!!!

            Looks like a nice choice, out of interest how much was it ? I did not even realise that we had that store (Keyboard Co) will have to give it a looksie. If I do go for a new one I would like to have a backlit setup again.

            Oh and don't forget to post your new kit in the Mechanical Keyboard Club:https://extremehw.net/forum/componen...keyboards-club

              Was £125. A little steep, but I prefer build quality over RGB. I always have my room lights on anyway.

              Keyboard Co are good people, very friendly. Worth checking out if you're Gloucester/Stroud way.

                A little steep but build quality is worth paying for, nothing worse than a rickety keyboard. RGB is nothing I want, but the option for standard backlit would be good. Will checkout the company, will see if they deliver lol
