Bought these for a Filco Majestouch 2 keyboard that had been accident. Keys require dere-soldering, but it's pretty easy if you have the right tools.

NB. Beware of buying these keys at much lower prices from other online retailers, as there are plenty of Chinese fakes floating around!

Service from The Keyboard Company was exceptional, even in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak. Well done guys.

Used to replace some broken switches on my Blackbird MAX keyboard, they worked great.

My new switches were delivered quickly, and I was able to replace my broken switch on my Coolermaster Storm in a jiffy, and it works great!

Used these to mod a new Ducky keyboard; the keyboard was originally MX Red but I didn't like how reds felt on the space bar, return key, etc.

They were also used to repair my old Filco Majestouch that I may or may not have dropped coffee on.

Exactly as described, would buy again as needed!
