Swedish Filco Convertible 2 Tactile Action Keyboard - FKBC105M/SWB2

  Millet  25/07/2017
--- Introduction ---
Received the keyboard only recently so I've only been able to test it shortly. So far the keyboard definitely delivers what was promised.

From what I've read about the keyboard the majestouch series are some of the best, so I was quite happy when I read about the plans for a nordic layout. It's quite hard findig a mechanical bluetooth keyboards on the market with nordic layout, believe me.

--- Build quality --- 4/5
Pros +
The keyboard has a very good build quality with the awesome mechanical cherry mx brown switches.
Is quite heavy, making it feel quite sturdy.
Cons -
Letters and symbols on the keys are printed on, not back-lit like most other premium keyboards. In my experience these printed letters will wear off with extensive use. I suppose no backlighting is a way to save battery, so it's definitely a tradeoff.

--- Bluetooth connectivity --- 5/5
Pros +
You can connect it to 4 different bluetooth devices, I've only tried 2 so far, but it is working flawlessly. You simply press a combination on the keyboard itself to switch between your devices. I have yet to have any connectivity issues.

Cons -
I guess the only con I can think of is that it could store more than 4 bluetooth devices. It's not what I would ever need though.

--- Battery --- 5/5
They claim that the keyboard lasts for 6 months with 5 hours of use every day, that is about 900 hours if my math isn't failing me. I have yet to test this though.

--- Innovation --- 5/5
The fact that you can switch between bluetooth devices as a moments notice and even connect it with USB if you really need it shows how innovative filco is. No other company that I've read about has done this or any variation of it (could be wrong of course, can't read everything).

--- My setup ---
The reason I need this particular keyboard is because I sometimes play games and use my computer directly from my sofa (with a Couch Master from nerdytech), which is 10 meters and a wall away. To achieve a good bluetooth connection through all this I've installed a bluetooth extender on my computer (AirCable host xr4). I've already got a bluetooth mouse, so all I needed more was a nordic layout bluetooth mechanical keyboard. I also add recepies to our digital cookbook (a lenovo pad) with this keyboard, as one of its paired devices.


--- Overall --- 5/5
Awesome keyboard so far, I will update with new information as I encounter new thoughts. Definitely recommended.
