About this deal

Both shift keys are 1u (on the ISO board) - and especially on the right this causes me many problems a day. There are future plans to lease by unique makers of handmade goods, in particular with the advanced embroidery technology used in Japan to make goods from kimonos, whose characteristic is "wafu" design that conjours up images of Japan. i mean in the past whoever use Filco knows how mediocre their keycaps are and have to change their caps anyways. Yes, their cases are plastic (“thicc” plastic), yes they only use Cherry switches, yes they use Costar stabs, yes most of their key caps are thin ABS… But in the grand scheme of things, and depending on who you are, none of those things really matter. I bought the old Minila Air only for those extra thumb keys, so I can use them for my (sophisticated or crazy) keyboard config.

To further sweeten the deal, Filco has opted to use double-injection (aka doubleshot) PBT molds, so the legends on each keycap never fade. Majestouch MINILA is the Mini layout version of Majestouch and we've made it as compact as possible by sharing Function keys with other keys.

This idea is that this allows you to keep your fingers on the home row and to be able to hit all the functions as required without having to jump off. left ctrl key, 2 function keys, and small 3u space bar, all make this a tough keyboard to customize. When I posted my review of the Minila back in April this year, I was really enjoying the Filco board - the only reason I moved off it as my daily driver in work was sound profile was making me stand out a little in the open plan office. The most striking feature of MINILA is the "Double Function keys" located each side of the spacebar. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

I was really blown away by it - at once I wanted to bring it back into the office and use it again, but although I loved the new sound profile - I’m still not sure it’s quieter than my silent red switches in the Vortex Cypher.I’ll have to do a sound test, and really put them to the test but for now, I’m really impressed the changes that I’ve made. I really like this keyboard, even with the weird layout issues it introduces while trying to fix some others.
