With the great advantage of a keyboard from a famous brand, a neat design, using a standard layout, integrated Bluetooth, and detachable cord for flexible use in many cases, this article will be a Some personal feelings when using Filco Majestouch Convertible 2 TKL.

In the past, users used to pay little attention to whether their Keyboard was mechanical or normal (Membrane), then after a while, users were more interested in price and quality. Since then, different schools have emerged, such as choosing cheap Chinese products or using products of famous brands, and I think, how can I know if it is better without using more expensive stuff? Majestouch Convertible 2 has secured the criterion of ‘slightly’ more expensive than current mechanical keys, so is it ok?

The Filco Convertible 2 TKL is one of my favorite ‘models.’ However, the Japanese brand must have given me confidence. It’s still mainly because it has a design that can be considered ‘most basic’ or ‘simplest,’ not too colorful, not too picky, but still ensuring subtle elements in the design. Along with that, Convertible is one of Filco’s best-selling product lines next to the Minila Air model for believers who love neatness and convenience because of its Bluetooth connectivity as well as detachable cord.

Open the product box.

Outside is some product information such as connecting up to 5 devices, integrated Bluetooth, detachable cord, using the Cherry MX switch, and the type of key (here is 87 keys or Tenkeyless).

The back adds more information about the accessories inside and includes an image of the entire key.

The edge will be the place to record important information inside the Keyboard, such as color, key layout, switch form, connection, and print position.

Briefly about mechanical Keyboard

Normal Keyboard – Membrane Keyboard: This is a fairly common keyboard because its key point is its cheap price. In terms of operation, the entire Keyboard can be viewed as ‘1’, when active users will use force on the key to make the key run all the way and touch the circuit to send information to the computer. Then, by the elastic nature of the plastic screen, it will push the key back to its original position after stopping the force.

Mechanical Keyboard: Instead of being a set, mechanical keyboards are separate independent keys called switches, with each press of the switches being pressed, they send signals to the computer and Keys can be identified, because it is completely individual, so the price is also much higher Manufacturers distinguish many different types, but it is still basically the same in terms of operation, usually just different in the level of pressure or the part that makes the sound (the click sound is made by only the Blue switch from the house Cherry and other manufacturers may have different names or colors).

The mechanism of action of 4 basic types – Red/Black/Blue/Brown.

The version I use is Convertible 2 TKL using Cherry MX Blue switch, which is one of those switches that ‘only some’ passionate users enjoy with the clicky sound that it ‘must’ emit during keystrokes. It is like the sound of promoting ‘scratching keys,’ and in part, using the Blue switch needs to hear the ‘click’ sound to receive the key to make typing faster.

About appearance

Filco Convertible 2 seems to be for users who love minimalism in style, and even the Keyboard needs minimalism. You will not see any highlights on the Keyboard, but bring a sturdy and magical look similar to the legendary Mitsumi – Black of every house.

All edges are matte Black with Filco’s logo placed in a rather hidden but cool position, not revealing but familiar to Filco.

The wire connection port is set to the left, and the middle is where the power button is located.

The bottom is a large 4 feet of rubber, switches for Bluetooth devices, and a place to insert the battery.

So what are the advantages for you to choose Convertible 2 over other competitors?

1/ Ability to connect up to 4 wireless and one wired device.

With Convertible 2, wireless connectivity is one of the main points that Filco wants to bring to its users. Using a Bluetooth connection, users will easily switch quickly between their devices, from one computer to another or from one device to another. Another advantage is to help the desk with No entanglement; it looks simpler and more sophisticated.

Compared with the Filco Majestouch 2 Ninja Tenkeyless version, the version of the rope, and the Ninja keycaps.

If your device does not have a Bluetooth connection, Majestouch Convertible 2 still supports a wired connection. When plugged in, you can still keep everything in place and switch to use it on another device without many operations such as unplugging to disconnect existing equipment first.

If you are a Macbook user, this is also one of the good choices, especially the old and new 15-inch Macbook Pro Retina line because it quite fits the machine’s overall size. If you put the key right on the keyboard surface of the device, it’s fine, but you have to put the key close to the screen to have a palm rest, so it loses display space, so it’s best to use a separate keyboard then it is best to just put it on the side of the machine with a separate mouse.

With handheld devices such as tablets or phones, you need to have an extra base to keep the device standing; in this case, it reduces usability, so I think it needs to put its base at a different location. The fixed position can be your workspace to use, and the Keyboard you can take anywhere is more reasonable.

2/ Super long operating time

According to Filco, Majestouch Convertible 2 can be used for up to 6 months (battery included) before needing to be replaced. The type of battery used is quite easy to find in convenience stores without ordering it exclusively from the company.

I have not tried using a rechargeable battery to use on the Filco Majestouch Convertible 2 to check if using a wired connection can directly recharge the battery (it seems like this is entirely possible). Still, if the battery lasts up to 6 months, I think the rechargeable battery is unnecessary. It’s best to change it every six months to avoid the case of the battery being damaged, but I don’t often open the battery cover to check.

3/ Standard layout, easy to play keycaps

I am quite interested in the keycap sets of mechanical keys; first of all, changing the façade is quite strong, replacing the stock keycap to bring new aesthetics and excitement on the old Keyboard, but really. I’m an outsider and don’t know much about the best keycap sets for users. But I think using standard layout (ANSI) on Majestouch Convertible 2 will be more suitable for those who like to play keycap. That is the advantage of Convertible 2 over Minila Air because it uses a different layout due to its size. It’s compact and finding the right keycap is a bit more difficult, and the one you like, it’s not cheap at all.

4/ Warranty period up to 5 years

Five years is a relatively long time for people, but this can be considered equal to the product life cycle, such as a mechanical keyboard, due to the Cherry MX Blue switch. The manufacturer says that this mechanical switch has a high level of reliability, about 50 million clicks, and roughly calculate with the following problem:

With the calculation for users scratching the keys at the peak to the point of ‘crazy’ ‘ up to 30,000 clicks a day, and you click non-stop day after day and every 30,000 consecutive days for up to 5 years, you can reach 54,750,000 clicks. The estimated number does not consider unexpected situations such as spilling water causing circuit damage, operating in a dusty environment, fewer cleaning keys, unintended damage, broken wires, running out of batteries.

5/ Layout of Windows but for macOS, Apple/Google devices are still fine

As you can see above, I use Majestouch Convertible 2 TKL mostly on Apple devices like Macbook, iPhone, iPad, and it is compatible and works well; with each device switch. I need to press nest keystrokes and make sure the Bluetooth on the new device is turned on can be switched immediately, and I highly appreciate this range of the Filco Majestouch Convertible 2 TKL.

Also, note when you use Majestouch Convertible 2 on Macbook, the key will be changed, with the Ctrl and Caps lock keys will be exchanged, the Windows key will be the Command key. If you don’t like this arrangement, you can change it in keyboard settings inside Keyboard> Modifier Keys.

Summary for Filco Majestouch Convertible 2 TKL

In general, about the brand, Filco has a get sympathy for users and considering the price, this is not necessarily a bad choice because this is still a brand, the overall Keyboard is still the same. With the neat and convenient advantage of using Bluetooth or a removable cord if you are a user of many devices simultaneously. That is one of the top choices for ‘one key to weigh many genres,’ easily choosing the right sets of alternative keycaps from cheap to expensive.

The experience on the Convertible 2 TKL is also quite good; if left on the table, the key surface is fine; the rest is the tabletop. So I can still type continuously without hand fatigue, partly due to the Blue switch also Not too heavy like Black. I click through the Click sound to change the key, not necessarily go all the way and touch the plate, in case you use it to play games, don’t worry too much; even the Bluetooth connection is fine. There is no delay, so you can spam the skill freely (but it certainly can’t be equal to the wired one, so using the wire is still a priority for the game that requires competition).

Above are my personal feelings when using Filco Majestouch Convertible 2 TKL, with each person will have different requirements for their Keyboard. Still, I am quite easygoing, so Convertible 2 TKL completely meets your requirements.
