  • I had been using an old Azio Levetron Clicker for many years before purchasing this about 2 months ago and, while this is obviously an upgrade, it's hard to overstate how much of one. I needed an upgrade as, while the Levetron had been a trusty friend for a long time, the keys were starting to stick to a point where even popping off the caps and cleaning them wasn't a long term solution. Also, the rubberized key caps were starting to wear down. I did a lot of research before this purchase so I definitely didn't just pick something based on color or whatever. For the price, The FC900R was everything I needed. It's no frills, no backlight or rgb or macros, but I don't care about any of that. I like the understated design. I did order a set of rubberized Ducky keycaps to replace some of the keys like WASD etc as I am still using it for gaming but it is also my daily driver, so I went with the Cherry MX Browns. I can confirm the slight 'ping' sound on the upstroke that another reviewer mentioned (especially on the spacebar) and it doesn't bother me really, but it might bother some as it definitely is there. Could be a little more clacky as well but that's ok. Overall, a solidly built and really fantastic product. If I get 7 years use out of this like I did the much cheaper Levetron then I'll be a repeat customer for life.

  • Amazing keyboard, I have been using it for around a month and a half now before writing this review. It is a fantastic keyboard, very heavy which I love, it is hard to accidently move it, which is nice. The switches are in fantastic condition, and I love the colors. My only complaint, and the reason I'm leaving a 4 star review, is that the space bar is too easily accidently pressed. The rest of the switches require pressure to put down on them while the space bar, while resting my thumb on it, I often end up holding it down by mistake, which is easily corrected, but as I do play games, accidently hitting the space bar can have some consequences. If the space bar was a little bit harder to press, this would be my all time favorite keyboard.

  • I just received my FC900R with Cherry MX Clear's. This is my first Leopold keyboard, and I absolutely love the build quality! This keyboard is heavy! The keys are well mounted with minimal cross movement. They noise from the switches is well muted. I really like the feel of the key caps. All in all, 5 stars for how this keyboard feels "in hand".
    Okay, now for the other side of things. For some reason I think I expected the Clear's to be more similar to model M buckling switches. I know, I know! Unrealistic! I had to actuate the switch slowly to feel the Tactile Bump, I think I expected more tactility. Also, the bottom out weight subjectively feels heavier than the newish Lexmark IBM Model M this keyboard is replacing (water killed it). If I had a it to do over, I would probably order the Brown's, or the Blue's. My daughter actually said it needed to be more clacky, like the model M was. :) So maybe that means Cherry MX Blue's next time.
    Ok, my daughter is reading this over my shoulder, she said I am going to order her an FC900R with Cherry MX Blue's. After that, I "need" an FC980M with Blue's.

    Thanks for a great keyboard!

  • I like this keyboard, although I'm not sure that I love the brown switches in it. I was hoping for a more substantial bump for feedback, but that's on me for not checking out a brown switch before buying. Build quality is great, it's heavy and the keycaps have a very fine amount of texturing that makes this a really pleasing typing experience. I can definitely see it becoming a daily driver at the office for the ten key functionality.

    It's quiet, built like a tank, and the dolch color way really sings in person. If you aren't super into bells and whistles and just want a reliable board that offers a wonderful typing experience you should definitely look at a Leopold if you don't already own one.

  • After doing a ton of research online and on Reddit trying to find the best mechanical keyboard, I landed on this Leopold FC900R and it did not disappoint! The quality is superb and the blue switches has made typing much more enjoyable. I find the backlight on keyboards to be gimmicky and prefer them without it. This keyboard seems solid and should last a long time but we'll see. A quick note on the color of this keyboard; it says it's black and tan but the black is more like a charcoal gray. It's nice a color but just something to keep in mind if you're looking for specific colors.

  • IF you are looking for a quiet keyboard, this model with the silent reds is the one to get, i love everything about this keyboard and would give it a 5/5 all day long but one of the keycaps came in damaged so i will be leaving a 4 for now, ive reached out and am waiting for a reply on how to receive a replacement keycap.
