After several years of owning and loving a couple Filco Ninja Majestouch-2 keyboards with red switches, I decided to try the browns. Out of the box, this keyboard with browns is, in my opinion, the best keyboard ever made for office use and day-to-day programming.
I've gone through a lot of alternatives to Filco keyboards for gaming and programming, and while I suppose it would be helpful to point out specific differences for people who are interested enough in them to be reading about this relatively niche and expensive product, I actually don't want to say or imply anything particularly negative about the other excellent keyboards I have tried. Instead I will just say that even when a keyboard obviously has a comparable build quality, or you are told it uses the same physical board inside the housing, or it has a luxurious feel on first use, the Filco handily wins for comfort and speed in extended use in every case in my experience. I don't know if it's the unusual inverted dome shape of the keys, or the freedom they have to use a single, uncomplicated plastic for the cap since there is no sandwiching or printing or layering to worry about, or just alchemy, but in any event Filco simply makes the best keyboards I can find.
I have found it helpful on my Filco keyboards to get some red WASD o-rings (
Cherry MX Rubber O-Ring Switch Dampeners Red 40A-L - 0.2mm Reduction (125pcs)
) for specific keys. I put them under all of the "big" keys (space, shifts, enter, backspace, and backslash and tab for gaming) and optionally the arrow keys. I find these almost more useful for work than gaming. There is often a bit of squeak at the end of the travel on the keys with the metal bars under them (which DeoxIT fixes as well) and also a resonant, hollow sound when you bottom out, and the o-rings eliminate both. I think the normal keys are better off without them, but something that you might hammer or use very repetitively may benefit from the rings.
So after some years and an embarrassing amount of money spent on these things, I'd say this is my favorite mechanical keyboard out there, in this specific configuration. Of course that's an unhelpfully personal assertion but if you like the feel of Filcos or are looking for a sturdy and professional keyboard with brown switches, I think this is the way to go.
