Pros - solid build - high-quality cherry switches - red LEDs aren't too bright
Cons - very basic - pricey for what you get
Summary Just got my filco the other day and I'm pretty happy with it so far.
Build/Features: The board feels professional and high quality. The board itself is solid and heavy. The keys feel nice and have a professional matte finish. The Red LED's are the perfect brightness, and won't blind you like the blue one's on mx blue and brown filco boards. Beyond the board, cover and PS-2 adapter, this doesn't come with anything. It's definitely an underwhelming experience opening the box.
Function: The MX Reds are amazing for gaming. You can float between W-A-S-D which makes movement very fluid. Reds feel closest to dome keys in terms of resistence and fluidity of movement, but are much smoother in their action cycle. The reds are very easy to bottom out, and I haven't quite gotten used to typing with them yet. I think with some o-ring bumpers the feel will improve greatly.
One thing that I think will just take time to get used to is the key spacing. The key faces are wider than most dome keyboards which makes the spacing between the contact faces closer. It's easier to hit the neighbours of your target key this way, and with the light force of the reds this can increase errors when typing. This also reduces the ability to button mash in the general area of where a key should be, so hitting C, V, F, G ect(peripheral gaming functions) accurately is a challenge.
Overall, this is a high-quality board that will last me a long time. In that sense, the price is probably worth it. However, I definitely feel that more could have been included at $140.
