UK Filco Majestouch-2, MX Brown Tactile Keyboard - FKBN105M/UKB2

The short version: This is a good, solid, no frills, professional mechanical keyboard. If you need one for work, this is a good one to get.

The longer version: As some of the other reviewers, I am a programmer. I spend a considerable portion of my day typing, so a decent keyboard is a piece of kit worth investing in.

For years I used a (now discontinued) Cooler Master Storm XT with Cherry MX Brown switches, until it finally wore out recently. I needed a replacement that would not only be a joy to type on, but would also be something that I could use in a professional setting, and potentially use with workclient laptops which would not allow installation of additional driver software. After quite a search I narrowed down the choice to the Filco Majestouch 2, and I am rather happy with it.

It doesn't have any fancy bells or whistles; there's no media keys, no pass through USB ports, and certainly no RGB back-lighting. What you get is a good solid keyboard, with a satisfying tactile feel to typing. It has a good overall professional appearance, so I'd be happy taking this back into the office when the time comes. Also, it doesn't require any additional software or drivers, so it is good for using with work or client laptops.

With Cherry MX Brown switches, it's not too loud, however I have further quietened mine with some dampening O-Rings to reduce the sound of bottoming out the keys. (Check the accessories section).

The one improvement I would have liked would be to have a removable cable, rather than an integrated one, as that would allow for using just the right length of cable for my desk setup. This is a minor thing though.

In summary: if you need a good keyboard to use for work (which doesn't light up like a Christmas tree), get this one.

I bought this keyboard in Mar2014, exclusively for work (I'm a programmer), 2 years after I got a blue switch model for home.
I only bought the brown switch so that I would not unduly disturb my colleagues in our open-plan office, and it's worked very well for that.
It's still a bit click-y, so not entirely silent, and feels like it requires slightly more force to actuate the keys, so my (personal) preference is still 100% with the blue switch model, but it's still a keyboard beyond reproach, solid, dependable, and very robust.

The keyboard is superb. I have two of them now: one for work and one for home. The service from The Keyboard Company was also faultless.

This full size keyboard with MX Browns is well built, feels great to type on and brings pleasure to everyday work. Very happy with it!

Awesome bit of kit - I tried out a couple of Das Keyboard boards before this and the difference is clear. They were good (loved the keys) but I thought the keyboards were rather dominated by their features and the branding was verging on the arrogant.
The Filco is a perfect blend of material and design, its solid, purposeful and, like another Reviewer stated, it makes you want to type.
Theres nothing you dont need, and everything you do need is right there. The Cherry brown keys suit me and the sound and tactile feedback benefit from the sheer mass of the chassis.
Most gaming keyboards remind me of a young girls tricycle with colourful streamers and a purple fluffy unicorn glued to a basket full of plush kitten toys.
If this keyboard was a car it would be a black 2015 Defender with a .50 cal in the back.
Its not pretty. Its serious.

Ordered two with brown switches, one for home and one for the office. Couldn't be happier- feels solid and great to type on. Very no-frills keyboard with no extra keys or weird layouts or other things I don't need. A very straightforward solid quality keyboard!

much better than the plastic gigabyte keyboard i had before. however, i ordered brown keys, and wonder if blue ones might have been better. the keyboard is really solid. the dust cover could be better than the cheap plastic one provided for only a little more. i do make fewer mistakes.

This keyboard is replacing a 7 year old QPad keyboard with cherry blue switches that I broke recently. I've had the Filco Majestouch-2 for 24 hours and I'm very happy with it. It's sturdy and is a pleasure to use, and I think I quite like the feel of the brown switches; there's less resistance than with blue switches so maybe my fingers will last longer with this keyboard too.

Keyboardco offer a great service, I will certainly use this company again. I shan't forget, as I have a keyboardco coaster next to my pc and what I can only assume is a Keyboardco nail file in my drawer full of bits and bobs just below it 😃

After 5 years of constant use, the keytops were too worn for accurately typing passwords. I fell back to using another make of keyboards that used the same switches (I'd won a keyboard). Just wasn't the same.
Now replaced all the keytops. Keyboard as good as new and like having an old friend back.
Perfect keyboards.

I've had the Filco Majestouch-2, MX Brown Tactile Keyboard for a week now and it is an absolute pleasure to use; it feels solid (it is heavy) and well built, and is very satisfying to type on. Having a decent keyboard makes such a huge difference to the typing experience especially when compared to the laptop keyboard of my work-issued Dell, which was beginning to make my thumbs ache after 4 months of working from home during lockdown. Wish that I had made the purchase sooner :) Thank you The Keyboard Company!

I bought a gaming keyboard so that i always get the key stroke logged as fast as possible, unfortunately these fancy RNG keyboards just dont hold up. This filco keyboard is a whole different level, very solid and robust. I also love the simple layout, looks cheap but it's anything but.

Best keyboard in the world! It is my second and the first is still going strong that I bought about 8 years ago after heavy daily usage. I cannot recommend enough.
