UK Filco Convertible 2 MX Blue Click Keyboard - FKBC105MC/UKB2

I have had a UK Filco Majestouch-2, MX Blue Click Keyboard FKBN105MCUKB2 for over 10 years and it is excellent. But the cable had become damaged so I repaired it, whilst waiting for the UK Filco Convertible 2 MX Blue Click Keyboard FKBC105MCUKB2 to be back in stock. My new keyboard is also excellent due to being largely the same as my old one, but weighs a bit more and comes with the added capabilities of a removable USB wire and a Bluetooth wireless connection.

First good things: great build quality, minimalist design and insane battery life - third week of intensive use, still haven't recharged it. And haven't felt any problems with bluetooth connection. This all makes it great board.

Not so good: No cable routing and would love to have USB passthrough and headphone jack - but primary use mode is wireless, so no big complaint there. Filco should also let LEDs be active when on battery. Switching them off prolonged battery life, but sometimes I miss Caps Lock indicator.

Horrible: keycaps. Never saw keycaps this bad on brand mechanical keyboard. It almost took two stars out of rating. They feel bad and they cheapen the feel of not so cheap keyboard - tiniest ABS plastic, wobbly and bit slippery. Even Das Keyboard keycaps feel better. Cheap Chinese PBT sets are also much better, and Leopold thick doubleshot PBT keycaps (borrowed from my other keyboard) are in another league - they make this board so much more responsive, sharp, and typing really feels premium, like it should.

Conclusion: Good keyboards in ISO layout are rare, and it limited my choice. Wireless functionality limited it even further - more or less Filco only. This is still good keyboard, and I'm happy with purchase - especially with delivery time in these troubled times. As for value - in recent years there is a lot of competition in mechanical keyboard world. Varmillo and Leopold are great alternatives, with similar build quality, vastly better keycaps and more modern design.

Great keyboard! Solidly constructed, and very very nice to type on. I can almost feel my typing speed and accuracy getting better! Yes, they're a bit noisier than a standard cheap USB keyboard, but really not by much. Pairing is straightforward, though I could actually do with more than 4 pair slots! The only problem I've had is that the @ and " symbols (and a few others) are swapped when paired to an iPhone and iPad, and there doesn't seem to be a way to change either the keyboard or iDevice's configuration. However, I'm still very impressed, and I'm considering getting a second one for work!

Easily the best keyboard I've ever owned in thirty five years of programming. Very solid with rubberised feet that stick to a desk like a limpet. Keys are needless to say a joy to use. One really nice little feature is that the caps lock LED is red and the num lock is blue which is really helpful when working in a case sensitive language like c++. If Rolls-Royce made kayboards...

Exceptional keyboard. Wonderful switches and build quality. Seamlessly switches between 4 Bluetooth devices and wired USB, hugely convenient. Amazing! 👌👌👌

Great keyboard! Solid build, sits firmly in place on my desk and doesn't skid around like 'normal' Keyboards. Cherry blue switches are clicky but not as 'clacky' on this as some other mechanical keyboards. The feedback from the keys is great as you would expect from Cherry MXs. Definitely a typist's choice!

Absolutely love this keyboard. It's really well made and looks really slick.
Pairing and switching between computers is really quick and easy as well.
I haven't had a change to fully road test the battery life yet, but so far so good.

I do work on a Mac so there is some mapping that needs to be done to the keys if you don't want to get used to a new layout, but that is to be expected.
