Just ordered my new keyboard


03 Jul 2012, 11:20

I bought my first mech keyboard, a Corsair K60, a month ago. Thought it was good at first, but i kept running into issues to I got a replacement. Got the replacement today, and it turns out the keyboard just sucks, so I ended up getting Filco TKL Reds. It's coming on thursday and I don't think I've ever been so excited. Please hype me up some more ^_^

What 'issues' were you running into?

Some weird things would happen while playing sc2 on the K60, I guess their implementation of 20kro didn't like my hotkeys/combinations.

Really interesting to hear more on those issues; since it's about the only one easily recommendable to friends over here..
(multimedia keys, metal, *availability*)

Some issues with keys repeating or sometimes not registering. Alot of weird things in game, I think having to do with spamming ctrl/alt/shift and the number row. The keys repeating is a known issue and Corsair is working to fix it, maybe my other problems are compounded because of it.

I'm sure you will never get the chance to regret to have a Filco Red! :lol:

Shame I really like the looks of the Corsair and forgot about that board until now.

Oh you want some more hype do you? Mine just came in yeterday!

Where'd you get the caps? Not the ugly ass rbg modifiers, the regular keys that look like topre dye subs :p

fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu :lol:
PS: they are obviously regular cherry Doubleshots (the a-z keys etc)

I think you'll love it! I have a CM Quickfire with blues that I used and just recently picked up a Leopold FC700R (with the PBT caps) and I absolutely love it! The only reason I chose it over the filco is that I just wanted the nifty/potentially-overrated media keys lol. Although I do miss the costar stabilizers.

Those DS caps look amazing Chris :O

Those caps look good Chris, I'm glad you like them.

You know, there is a (destructive) fix for those cherry corp stabilizers :)

Not sure why I hated cherry style stabilizers originally. I was probably just being a filco fanboy. Cherry's make it so much easier when changing out caps.
