all the cherry mx actuate at 2mm
mx red and mx brown use the same force, they only need 45g to press down the key easily, means their spring are kinda light.good for touch typist. the only difference is cherry mx brown give you tactile feedback.
mx black need 60g force to press the key down, actuate after 2mm key travel. it's spring are harder. for some1 who have strong fingers. if you have soft finger want to touch type on mx black, is kinda hard. mx black are for those who prefer silent too, because they are linear, they not clicky, and they need higher force like 60g, the higher force will prevent you from bottoming up the key, and without bottoming up the key, you will reduce alot of noise.

Very clear explanation.
And till now my favorite still linear non-clicky and using 7G, so looking forward for MX red. (Blue 1 just too noisy)

The quality looks superb. (but blank key looks more elegant, just my 2 cent)

Anyway, it should be very durable, or should say it won't fade off forever ever after.

Filcos are coming to Malaysia in January. Look out for storm88's post.

Or you can opt for Ducky, which you can get through PChome Taiwan.

I prefer ducky all the way, of cause getting Filco will be much more easier from next month onward.
Hope there is no any delay of the stock come into Malaysia.

Anyway, don misunderstand my meaning, I still satisfied with my 7G, the toy is means Filco leather arm rest haha.

ya possible, but most probably you need find people to do bulk order and import it. The price also superb.

Follow up with moogle, I think in GH still voting for the type of key caps for next bulk order.

Once Filcos arrive in Malaysia, the price should be about the same as buying Ducky through PChome, maybe even cheaper.

As for quality, Filco has better build quality as it uses a heavier metal backplating. However, I am happy with my Ducky's build quality as it is much heavier than I expected. So it's definitely sturdy and can withstand my wrist's weight without a problem.

As for keycaps, you can opt for PBT keycaps in Ducky keyboards which is supposedly better material. In Filco, you get pad printed ones but they are higher quality type of pad printed keys.

As for functionality, Ducki wins all the way as you have various Function keys. I find the keys at the top right corner very useful too, especially the 2nd one which launches My Computer which is really handy for me. Besides, Ducky has removable USB connector while Filco does not.

Ducky's Caps, Scroll and Num lock lights are in the keys itself. So things may not look so nice if you plan to change keycaps. However, this shouldn't be an issue if you're not planning to get those funky keycaps.

One important thing to note is that Ducky keyboards use Cherry MX Black for their spacebar. MX Blacks are non tactile and non clicky, as opposed to the MX Blue which I am using that is clicky and tactile. So it really feels kinda weird to be typing like these because all along you have feedback when typing but all of a sudden your spacebar doesn't give you any feedback. It requires some getting used to. I sort of got used to it by the 3rd day but nevertheless it still feels a little awkward.

Filcos have uniform switches throughout the board so no worries there.

As for warranty, I believe Filco's warranty should be more reliable as they are going to distribute it in Malaysia. I'm not even sure how to claim warranty for my Ducky if something bad happens to it. sweat.gif Hopefully nothing happens.

I think stratos answered your question.
Anyway I was not joining GH forum, so maybe you pm Moogle for the link to vote and join them to bulking the keycaps.
I want the key caps also, but my wallet not allow cry.gif

MX red is another more idealistic switches for me. Rather softer linear 1.

Well, I guess I have to wait for filcos to arrive in Malaysia. Since ordering from taiwan doesn't seem so ideal to me.

Thanks for your explaination. biggrin.gif

I think storm88 is bringing MX red Filcos too. He's working on it.

@StratOS: Technically, yes. You can mod it yourself which requires some serious amount of work. If you meant if 7G comes in other switches variants, no then.

Can if you buy different switches and mod yourself. But it's way cheaper to get either a filco/ducky/leopold if you want blue, black or brown doh.gif
