Cherry MX Blue switch audible properties
The 'clicky' switch from Cherry is the favourite switch for typing as it has the click that tells the user that the switch is pressed in an audible way, this is in addition to the tactile feel. The click is made by a mechanism sliding up and down inside the switch and as it slides over a bump it clicks. This mechanism can take some time to bed in, sometimes there is more lubrication than other times and on occasion it can be a little sticky. This is another joy of using a mechanical keyboard. We do sometimes find that a Blue switch has a different noise quality to another Blue switch due to the nature of the product. So it is possible that across a keyboard the noise made may not be uniform.
While we pride ourselves on our service and customer support, we are unable to guarantee the audible quality of the click on a Blue switch.
If the audible click is found to be inconsistent and it is disturbing to the user we are happy to RMA the keyboard as per our 14 day satisfaction guarantee but we can't treat the noise the switch makes as a fault and we can't send out a Blue switch keyboard with a guarantee of the noise qualities.

Wow, just wow.

My first mechanical keyboard, and I have to say I'm impressed beyond my wildest expectations. The click-y feel is absolute joy to type with, nothing short of that.
The physical design is solid, and though key configurations are minimal, they'll match the needs of almost all QWERTY typists.
The 4 wireless profiles prove very useful - I can quickly switch from my home to work laptops!
The volume control mappings are somewhat awkward, (with F1, F2 and F3 mapped to Vol.Up, Vol.Down and Mute, correspondingly), but that's something that I'll get used to eventually.

The only downside is that I'm hesitant to bring it to the work place, in fear of being lynched by people who can't tolerate the amount of noise the blue switches produce :)

Definitely recommended!

Goodness, where to start with this keyboard.

A little bit about me first I guess. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and it has gotten to the point where I am not having some trouble with feeling in my fingertips, in particular when using a keyboard.

So I was looking for a keyboard that had a tactile feel and was wireless. I actually almost thought there was no keyboard out there that would fit the bill at the moment until I found the Filco Majestouch Convertible 2 with Cherry MX Blue Switches.

I got both the tactile feel and wireless that I wanted and it was nice to know the blue switches were not as loud as I was worried they would be.

BONUS: I am a fast typer, averaging around 92-94 words per minute, and I was also worried that because the keyboard was wireless that it would not be able to keep up. It does and the last time I took a typing test, I was able to break 100 wpm. This isn't to gloat but just to let people know that the keyboard does keep up.
