This is a mostly very good keyboard, but after using this keyboard for about a year and a half now there are three things that disappoints me:
1) There is too often a short stutter when connected with bluetooth, which makes a keypress couuunt several times. As you can see in the last sentence here in the word count. I left it as it was typed. This happens perhapes every other minute, which is way too often for me to be able to use this as a work keyboard, at least with bluetooth.
2) Some keys are not very responsive. My left shift and 2-button need a harder press to respond than my other keys. I've tried cleaning and switching keys, but it hasn't helped. I don't remember if they were like this from the get go, or if it happened after a while, but either way it's annoying.
3) The last thing is that it uses a very old fashioned mini usb for wired connection. Come on, not even micro usb? I guess it's not important, but it means I have to keep a completely outdated wire around if I want to use a wired connection.

Other than these three points this keyboard would be great. I like the quality feel, I like the keys and design. I use the keyboard a lot with my phone, a laptop and a desktop. It switches fast, it connects fast, and except thos stutters, the bluetooth connection is very good and stable. This would have been 5/5 except for those three points, but I can not really reccommend the keyboard for work unless you use a wired connection or are okay with spelling errors due to stuttering. I hope Filco could get a new version out that fixes these issues.

I work mostly from home and needed a single keyboard to use with a docked work laptop and my home computer.

I use the keyboard via bluetooth with my laptop and via usb cable on my home computer. Bluetooth connection is not always instant on laptop, but it doesn't take too long either. Keyboard offers up to 4 different bluetooth targets, which could be useful some day.

Coming from a budget model mechanical keyboard and comparing it to this one, this offers a better feel and feedback when either programming or gaming, so it's pretty much what I ihoped it would be.

The only extra feature that I can think of to improve this keyboard would be a backlight feature - it might be useful in some situations. Delivery to Finland was swift and I have no complaints whatsoever.

Yess!
It took me a lot of time to find my first mechanical keyboard. I was particularly searching for SWE layout and one in Europe.
First of all I must say that I was surprised about the delivery time - it was super fast! When unpacking I discovered how elegantly beautiful this keyboard is. But it is not only about the looks. The build is heavy and sturdy there is a massive feel to it what I really love. The keys work neatly and I am itching to go back to office typing.
I haven't had the time to use it with all connections - but I am sure it one day will come handy.

Very nice keyboard which requires you to check the manual a bit for instructions on how to pair.

For those interested, it's pretty sturdy and quite heavy for a keyboard. Also, it was a bit of a surprise for me to see that when used with Apple iOS (iphoneipad) it will use the keyboard layout intention of Apple, which differs a bit from your regular PC layout (like for example braces need a combination of three keys), this is Apple feature and it would happen if you plug in any keyboard. When connected with PC the keyboard layout works as intended (didn't try Android).
