Very nice keyboard whose features are among the very best. The delivery is also satisfying and the customer service very reactive and professional. What was even more pleasant was to find keyboards with French layout which is quite challenging even on some other marketplaces, and at a very fair price for a Filco keyboard. Eventually I feel very grateful for having been given the opportunity to get a keyboard that meets all my requirements at the same time (robust built, brown switches, French layout, sober ie. no backlighting and elegant design). Once again thank you to the Keyboard Company !

Typing this review off my new Filco keyboard,
Royal Mail takes a week to ship to southern France.

I like it.

Since the cherry MX brown switches are 4mm deep while sporting a 2mm actuation depth, you end up with two possible typing styles :

Either you go all the way down (at first) with clear clicks at the bottom,
Or you push down the keystrokes more gently, running your fingers half way to dull out the clicks and get a smoother feel. This comes naturally after a short habituation period to adapt with the keys' mechanical response. On that note you can add O-ring switch dampeners. I did set them up to test their effect. They do dull out the key hits. In practice I like having the keyboard as is.

The keyboard itself is a fine piece of hardware. Solid, heavy, huge pads, USB cable is thick, lace is robust. Filco didn't spare on the materials.

It took me forever to compare, read blogs etc, before placing my purchase so let me make one single comparison with an IBM model M. It doesn't compare. The IBM requires very hard strokes and you get a strong spring force on the return right after the click. The modern mechanical keyboards are way softer. There exist MX CLEAR switches that are rumored to be slightly harder to push in. I will never know for french keyboard layouts are scarce :)

All about this keyboard was designed to be robust to the last detail. Just go for it.

Very happy for the purchase,

Yours sincerly

I have tested a lot of mechanical keyboards but this Filco Majestouch is just incredible and perfect! It's worth all the money it's cost. Typing become a real pleasure. This Keyboard is just THE KEYBOARD ! No hesitation ! Highly recommanded

This is unquestionably the best French keyboard I have ever used. Filco clearly deserves its reputation and so does The Keyboard Company, with its lightning-speed delivery and decent pricing.
Never forget that there are two essential things in a computer : the screen you watch and the keyboard you type on.
Yours hands will thank you so much!

I ordered this keyboard a monday morning. It was shipped the same day, flew from England to France the day after and I received it in Paris, one week after my purchase.

This is my second FILCO from the Keyboard Company and the service is just perfect.

The product is very high quality and the construction is sturdy. The design is very slick and the keycaps are marked with beautifully printed characters.

No wonder it is a best seller for the Keyboard Company.

I chose the Cherry MX Brown switches because indeed it gives a nice tactile feel without the audible click of the blue switch. So it is not too noisy.

While not stated in the description of the product, it should be noted that the keyboard has extendable legs.

This keyboard is for you if you like classical design (no media keys, flashy gamers LEDs, or any other clutters) and quality reliable products.

A happy FILCOThe Keyboard Company customer.

PS: it is too bad that FILCO is only proposing wooden and not leather or other black colour material Palm Rest to better suit the black colour of the keyboard.
