This order was my second of this keyboard, I got fed up of taking it back and forth to the office after the lockdowns (when still working from home). So I invested in a second one to keep at home!! Fantastic keyboard, no frills or silly lights and colours like some mechanical keyboards. Just what I wanted.

Keyboard arrived very quickly (next day). I have two other keyboards, a Filco Majestouch with MX Brown switches, and a Topre Realforce - both are annoyingly loud when I'm note taking on video calls - which are now a much bigger part of my job! The silent red switches really do make a big difference, especially if you type gently (i.e. don't bottom out every key stroke) it doesn't annoy callers so much.

Keyboard arrived promptly in adequate packaging. I had a keyboard with MX Red Silent switches before, but that died very quickly (some problem with the USB interface, not the switches). This Filco Majestouch-2 was a replacement. So I knew what to expect from the switches, no surprise there.

Beyond that, it's a basic keyboard made really really well. If you're looking for macros, lighting, or other frills, look elsewhere.

On the margin, I'd also say that the way the casing and the overall design play together makes this keyboard not particularly quiet in use. Which slightly defeats the purpose of these particular switches, I suppose. So you should buy it more for the feel of the switches than for being a really quiet keyboard.

Bought the keyboard to replace my 22 year old IBM keyboard, which only finally gave up the ghost when I split orange juice down it!

The Filco keyboard has a very solid, weighty feel to it; truly excellent. The Cherry MX Brown switches are very nice to type with, and also work extremely well when gaming.

The only minor complaint is that the keyboard has no backlighting, so finding the right keys on a late night gaming session can be tricky without some form of external lighting in the vicinity. I'm planning on a small USB lamp powered from my monitor - as the keyboard also doesn't have USB out; or maybe swapping some of the key caps for different colours.

All-in-all, I'm very happy with the purchase. Time to arrive was 2 days after placing the order on Amazon.

My first foray into mechanical keyboards after using an Apple keyboard for several years, and I am very happy. The keyboard is very well built and quite quiet - although when working from home the dog seems less keen to be in the same room! My typing speed and accuracy are slowly improving. I miss the USB ports on the Apple keyboard which I used for a mouse (I prefer wires, so have had to dig out an old USB hub), but that is all. The increased height over an Apple kb has required me to tweak my desk ergonomics to avoid a bit of wrist strain.
Service from Keyboard Co was swift and faultless, and prices competitive. I highly recommend them based on my experience.

I bought one of these to replace a Natural Keyboard Pro which had been my workhorse for at least 10 years but which was getting a bit tired, and very noisy (especially noticeable by my colleagues on conference calls).

I tried the Silent Red and the Brown at Keyboard Co's offices -- I was expecting to go for the Brown, which is indeed lovely to type on, but was amazed at how quiet the Silent Red is, even (if not especially) the space bar. When you're used to bottoming out, the Silent Red isn't completely silent but I'm sure with time I'll adapt and get it even quieter.

The Red switches are wonderfully smooth, and I don't find that I'm missing the tactility of the Brown.

Keycaps are a very personal thing, and to my mind the standard keycaps have a lovely almost-matt sheen to them.

Build quality is amazing, regular keyboards have nothing on this.

Many thanks to John and Bruce for fantastic service, advice and recommendations. I hope I'll be back!

Keyboard is really good quality and very quiet. Purchased it in the hope that it would solve the problem of a heavy keyboard user who was very loud... so far it has made a big difference.
Keyboardco were very helpful in recommending different product.

I was hunting for a mechanical keyboard to use at work that was quiet, didn't have LEDs and didn't look gamerish, this keyboard fit the bill perfectly.
Upon received the keyboard can say I was over the moon, fantastic build quality and extremely quiet (quieter than those in my office using membrane keyboards). Highly recommend this keyboard

Keyboard arrived well packed and in perfect condition. Ordered on the 7th, arrived on the 9th. Customer service was brilliant - I accidentally ordered the USA layout, but a quick call fixed my issue without delaying dispatch.

The keyboard itself seems sturdy and stays put on my desk. Its my first mechanical keyboard, so no other frame of reference, but it feels a lot nicer to type on than my old chiclet keyboard.

Thanks to the team at The Keyboard Company.

My second Filco. First one now has a shiny spacebar? Other than that works perfectly. New one 'feels' & 'sounds' stiff. Sure it will wear in, as did my first.
A (modest) touch typist, the quality stands out. Worked perfectly since Jun 2014, benefitted from a good clean (herrumph) twice in its life. Old one now relegated to an older machine.
Easy purchase, *very* well packaged (grin) and I'm ready for another 5 years with this one.
Tks keyboard company - keep up the excellent work (and product list)

Can't fault the service from The Keyboard Company: my keyboard arrived next day, well packed with no issues.

I already had the blue-switched version of this keyboard at home, which made my cheap keyboard at work feel awfully flimsy and spongy in comparison.

I went for the silent red-switched version out of consideration for my colleagues the blue switches are *loud*but I was a little concerned that the feel wouldn't be as nice.

If this sounds like you: don't worry, get one now!

This thing is absolutely bombproof, makes very little noise and best of all, makes typing vastly more enjoyable (which is a big bonus when you spend ~8 hours a day doing it).

Excellent keyboard, perfect for office work as it's actually quieter that the cheap keyboard my colleagues have.

Build seems solid and delivery was really fast. Would buy again!
