    Yeah you can get those gray keycaps soon in ISO, they are from wasdkeyboards.com and they will be updating the new stock soon for ISO.

    You can get Race from here.

    After a lot of thought I ended up ordering the Filco Majestouch-2 tenkeyless :) Really didn't need the numberpad, and as for backlit keys well it's nice but not mandatory for me :p

    I think I'm going to go with a WASD brand keyboard. They fit my price range, are good quality, have excellent customer service and fit my needs

    I've got a WASD brand keyboard, it made a great dive into the mechanical world. Getting to customize my WASD cluster and ESC key made it a little more appealling than others out there.

    You want to just get the lettering off??
    You can buy blank keycaps to replace them if that's what you mean?

    And yeah, WASD keyboards are nice for you US guys, shipping costs make them a little pricey for the UK :(

    Got a Filco TKL with blues on it's way, should arrive tomorrow, and a Poker with ghetto reds arriving next week :D

    You'll probably have to import them, not a problem though, I've imported 2 sets of keycaps without an issue, took a couple of weeks to arrive, cost less than £30 for both sets shipped from China.

    Or you could get something from WASD, don't think the shipping on the smaller items is too bad.

    Another site that has had lots of good reviews.

    Yeh been looking at them but i think the Filco ones will be ok and i can order them when i get the keyboard,its just my main gaming keys are.
    M=Forward
    Space=Back
    ,=Left
    .=Right
    Would be good if i can take the letters off the red keycaps.

    Devlin is a UK manufacturer, and they offer keycaps, but I am unsure of their current pricing or what exactly they have available. Their site has F-all on it now, I guess you would have to contact them.

    I went to buy a Filco yesterday but the bank refused the transaction. Checked my account to discover somebody has got my debit card details somehow and emptied it. :miffed: A mech keyboard would really cheer me up right now.

    It's getting there. Bizzarely they have to wait for "pending" fraudulent transactions to go through before they can refund them to me. Hopefully should have all the funds restored to my account by Friday. I don't know where they got my details from though which is the main worry and means changing all my online account details and i do ALL my shopping online. :sigh:

    Anyways back to keyboards! I was going to buy a Filco full size UK with Cherry Browns and red ESC, W, A, S and D keys.

    I noticed that KustomPCs sell a Filco blank keyset.

    Received my Filco Majestouch-2 Tenkeyless today and boy have I been missing out! The first thing that hit me taking it out of the box is that it's really rock solid and built to withstand a lot of abuse, plus when it's on your desk it stays planted with its rubber feet.

    Coming from a full size keyboard (old one was a Sidewinder X4) I'm really digging the small footprint, I definitely made the right choice getting the Tenkeyless version :) Being my first mechanical keyboard, I can't really comment on the feel of the Cherry Browns but compared to my old keyboard is night and day! The typing action feels great and after a short stint on BF3 it's definitely good for gaming too.

    One thing I'll need to get used to is the height at the front of the keyboard. I'll need to get some sort of wrist rest because its a little too high for me to be comfortable for long periods, but not the official Filco one that's going for about around £40!.

    If you're looking for a Tenkeyless mechanical keyboard, the Filco Majestouch-2 is definitely one to consider :D
