Love this keyboard so much that this is the third time I've bought it! Lovely tactile feel to it, with lots of clackety clack. Switches between bluetooth devices relatively fast, so I can jump from my iPad to my laptop in a jiffy. I have three because I need one for home, one for the office, and a back-up in case I do something stupid and spill tea on it. Am very pleased with both the keyboard and the service from Keyboard Co.

I found the bluetooth configuration very easy.

Very, very sturdy and solid build. Filco is THE brand. This is premium. But still I would like more layout options, for instance - larger ENTER for smaller left shift or BACKSPACE.
The connection is solid, easy to set up, works great. It has auto sleep function after 30 min, that you should keep in mind and it takes about 1-2 sec to wake up if you press anything. Sadly though, this feature cannot be switched off. Anyway, Filco doesn't have any keyboard configuration software or something... so you get a solid product, works great, trusty kind plug and play. Very classic, nice. BUT if you want a customizable mechanical board, lights, properties etc... this is not for you. Just saying.

Amazing keyboard. And fast delivery.

First mechanical keyboard that I own, but I've tested a few i the past. And I'm not so impressed, especially for a reputable brand such as Filco.

Construction quality seems far from high. The keys wobble if you move them from the top, especially the space and Esc (though this now seem to affect typing experience). Also, my standard of comparison are not mechanical keyboards, but mostly the Thinkpad notebook keyboard and the apple aluminum desktop keyboard. Both gave a sense of well-make that is lacking in this keyboard.

The keys themselves seem a bit undersized to me: I have large long fingers and I'm used with thinkpad and mac aluminum kbs that I know have kind of oversized and ovespaced keys.

Also, the MX brown switches seem at the same time kind of mushy, too deep keypress distance (from my prev experience with good quality notebook keyboards), too noisy (though the noise seems to come from keycap hitting backplate or something, not the switch itself) and not crisp enough (yeah, they are tactile, I can feel with certainty when the key was pressed, but they feel a bit too linear in response or something like that, it's hard to describe, there's not that 0 or 1 feel or completely pressed or not pressed at all, nothing in between).

This sounds pretty self-contradictory, I know :)

I guess the idea desktop keyboard for me would be a desktop version of old-school Thinkpad keyboards (I think they had spring + scissor switches?). Don't think this exists, though.

But overall, this is a solid classic desktop keyboard and mx-brown switches are great for precision typing, nothing to reproach here.

Excellent quality heavy weight substantial keyboard, preferred USA layout, with Cherry keys. My second keyboard from Keyboard Co. Quick, efficient, well packaged, easy to order.

Product Review
Overall I love this keyboard
I might be wrong but so far what I have researched, currently there are only two good quality wireless mechanical keyboards on market(Filco Convertible 2 and Logitech G613). I didn't go for G613 as the palm rest is non-detachable.
If you are looking for a simple(no RGB lighting) full size wireless mechanical keyboard this is the one for you.

Its heavy compared to other keyboards and built qulity looks good. There are 4 rubber pads at bottom of keyboard and it won't move even easily.

Bluetooth configuration - First time configuring is a pain, i believe its the same with most bluetooth devices, deducted one start for that
Price is higher compared to G613, but I can't say much about G613 build quality.
