  • Looks nice and feels nice it has nice satin finish. But it doesn't have mini-usb daugherboard instead it has very big ugyly hole back there where you can use for your cable. Very disappointed.

  • The build quality of this case is fantastic and I highly recommend it.

    The previous review mentioned lack of room for various key profiles. I did not have this issue as I seated and positioned my plate properly. I have tried this case with SA, DSA, DCS and cherry and had no fitment issues at all. Be careful to align your plate properly, keeping in mind how it is positioned. I'd recommend putting a key or two on prior to screwing together the case. This will allow you to align it easier.

    This case did not include the mini usb port. As far as I know, that was a previous version.

    Again, awesome case and even better customer service (Justin).

  • This is a two part aluminum case by Tex. The build quality is nothing short of their other cases (which is fantastic). The satin finish applied to the CNC cut aluminum is very nice, though I am not sure how this compares to anodizing the case with a dye, in terms of durability.

    There are a couple of problems I have with this case, one of which is unfortunately somewhat major. Firstly, the top metal plate does not leave much room around each perimeter keycap, meaning if you install different caps, it is likely that several switches (mainly the escape and arrow keys) will tend to stick, due to them being larger than intended. I've found that with some caps (DSA profile, for example), you can slightly adjust the switch itself to get enough clearance, but this does put strain on both the switch mechanism and potentially the solder connections on the PCB.

    Secondly, the PCB does not screw into the case as it does in a normal Filco Majestouch, and is simply held in place by the top plate. This isn't really a problem, as the case is very strong with eight bottom panel hex head screws holding it together, but I would have expected additional threading for the PCB

    Otherwise, this is a very sturdy, well-built case. The base, as pictured, includes a PCB with a female mini USB port mounted onto the back, which is a welcome feature, as the original Majestouch 2 is hard wired. Two screw-in aluminum feet are also included, as well as plenty of rubber pads.
