Bought a Filco Majestouch 2 a couple of years ago (also at The Keyboard Company, great service) and was looking for a second, more portable mechanical keyboard this time to use at the office. As I was really happy with the Majestouch 2 I was pretty set on getting another Filco keyboard.

In the end I went with the Convertible 2 Tenkeyless with Cherry MX Brown switches. I really like the Bluetooth wireless functionality and the option to switch devices. I have been using the keyboard with my Macbook (wireless), iPhone and office computer (wired). It has been a solid typing experience so far (first time using the Brown switches) and I can really recommend this device.

Long story short...
- delivered to Romania without any problems in about a week.
- compact (good for lap typing)
- bluetooth connection with 4 stored devices (1 TV, home PC, Laptop, workplace PC)
- heavy (I like heavy)
- superb action (brown switches, first time using them)
- remapping jumpers for Vim users plus replacement keys.
I've never owned a bad keyboard (for long), and this one really puts a big smile on my face. I did not expect to be impressed so quickly. I'm seriously considering buying a second one for work (blue switches, and white ninja keys, just to annoy everybody).

Got this beauty with brown keys and wooden palm rest.

Currently using it to connect to a macbook, a linux laptop, an android tablet and even a phone!

Wondering how much the batteries will last, but there's always the possibility to leverage USB for power while still using bluetooth for communications.

I am very happy with the keyboard.
I had many doubt before to buy this keyboard, mostly because I have been happily using apple chiclet keyboards for probably 15 years and I was worried I would have not felt comfortable typing on a mechanical keyboard again.
I bought this keyboard for a secondary desktop I use when working from a home holiday.
When I was back from holiday I brought the keyboard with me and replaced my apple chiclet keyboard with this one.
It's much much more precise, typing is faster, it's better point. Way better.

Keyboardco service was good, no problem, no issue.

Everything was good with his purchase.

Клавиатура отличная, работает даже тише, чем ожидал. Дополнительно заказывал силиконовые кольца, но пока не ставил.
Доставка быстрая, в Киев за 7 дней

The keyboard is excellent, it works even quieter than expected. In addition, I ordered silicone rings, but I have not yet put them.
Delivery fast, to Kiev for 7 days

This keyboard already has a lot of good reviews so just read those. As for me, I bought it for the reliable Bluetooth that last months and months with one set of AA batteries. According to the https:www.diatec.co.jp this keyboard will run 6 months if you use it every day for 5 hours. I have been using it for like 3 months intensively and it is still working. Guess they weren't kidding.

I own the wired version of the keyboard and have been using it everyday for the past 4 years as developer. I wanted a Bluetooth version for my laptop and it's absolutely brilliant. Works flawlessly with PC, Mac and Android.

Worth every penny and Ie recommended it to multiple people!

Standard 87 tkl keyboard. Solid build, cherry mx switches, pretty good Bluetooth connection. The quality you would expect from Filco.

Keyboardcos service was great. Good customer service, will definitely do business with them again.

Got my first TKL with brown keys 4 years ago. Have used on a daily basis at work. Superb tactile feedback, design and solid feed. Now decided to try out the wireless version. Same solid quality, but with the benefit of having no cable. Recommended!

I am very satisfied with the product and the services provided by Keyboard Company.

The keyboard is eaxctly how is described, I wanted a mechanical keyboard but no wires so this one is perfect for me.

There were no problems with the order or package, everything went smooth and delivery was fast.

I highly recommend both the keyboard and website.

I've been using the keyboard for about 3 weeks, and I have to say, it might be the single best keyboard purchase I've ever made (and I've made lots!).

I own a Filco Majestouch 2, the full-sized, USB version, so I knew generally what I was getting into. It's a quality, no-frills, professional keyboard. If you used any of their keyboards, you'll know what to expect; all their products are of the same caliber. This tenkeyless version is great for having the mouse closer to your body, and I've purchased a separate number pad for when I need to input numbers extensively. It's great to have the number pad when you need it, and can be removed when you don't.

The bluetooth connection is typical, in that it has the flaws of every single bluetooth keyboard I've used. It takes about a second to connect, and it'll enter sleep mode if you haven't used it for a bit. Again, this is expected and I don't discount this keyboard for it. It's a solid tradeoff for extended battery life. Otherwise, connection is excellent, and I'm able to use it at a normal distance (though I haven't tried across the room, as I haven't had a need for it).

The most important feature in my opinion is the multiple connections, up to 5 if you're including USB. This lets me type on my iPad, my iPhone, and my PC with a quick keyboard combo press while I'm at the desk, or move it to my couch and use it with my PS4 and Raspberry Pi on the TV. It's absolutely fantastic. Originally, my search was for a normal bluetooth keyboard without this feature, but having this has changed my view of regular bluetooth keyboards. It makes it so much more useful.

One very minor thing that bothers me is the placement of the volume keys. Why it's reversed from every other keyboard, I'll never know. Every other keyboard has, from left to right, the mute, volume down, and volume up; on this keyboard, it's volume up, volume down, and mute. I'll often find myself muting by accident when I try to increase the volume, or increase the volume when I try to mute! But that's a minor detail from an otherwise perfect keyboard.

All in all, a fantastic purchase. And Keyboard Company shipped it in a time I didn't think was possible from the UK to Canada. It's always a pleasant surprise when buying from a reputable dealer and recieving the item at a break-neck speed.
