Filco’s mechanical keyboards are legendary, renowned in gaming circles for their performance and longevity. Their flagship keyboard, the Majestouch, has received an upgrade this year and become the Majestouch-2. It’s available with the standard array of Cherry switches: Blues, Blacks, and Browns.
This particular review sample uses Cherry MX Browns, a ‘tactile action’ mechanical switch. This means that you can feel a small feedback bump as you press down each key, letting you know that the keypress has registered. These switches are also fairly quiet, lacking the distinctive clicky sound of the similar Cherry Blues. Finally, these switches are the lightest Cherry switch, requiring only 45g of force to actuate. For these reasons, Browns are viewed as a middle-of-the-road option, offering both good gaming and typing performance, particularly for long sessions.
