About this deal

As keyboard and mouse specialists since 1989, we are perfectly placed to meet virtually every keyboard and mouse requirement. I have to say, this daughter board with a USB hub connection type was something I’d never seen before on a keyboard but a really nice design. I found the MINILA practical in comparison, and the ability to swap caps lock and control in the same manner as the keyboard it was replacing was a godsend. The shape and material of the sole absorb impacts and provide stability, preventing the risk of slipping. Having said all that, I love the quirks of this little Bluetooth board and I can see a “modding” project to replace the cherry switches in this thing coming in my future (keep an eye here if you want to see that)!

Majestouch MINILA Air is the MINI LAyout version of Majestouch and we've made it as compact as possible by sharing Function keys with other keys, it's most striking feature is the "double function keys" located on each side of the spacebar. The Filco Majestouch MINILA is an interesting keyboard in terms of customization - some pro’s but definitely some cons.

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.

Rob 30/07/2019I've had the full-size Filco Majestouch 2 as my main keyboard for several years, but I was starting to experience tendon issue in my elbow as a result of having to move my right arm quite a long way over to reach the mouse.

All Filco keyboards come with genuine Cherry MX Switches, and the Filco Majestouch Minila-R (Matte Black) is no exception. and a wonder combination of tiny and bulletproof - I honestly think I'll be leaving this in my will!

I went for the mx reds since I do a lot of typing in public places and despite liking tactility, perform better with linear switches. It’s just so close to the arrow keys that I end up hitting the up arrow rather than the shift key all the time.

These sound dampening techniques are really common in modern enthusiast boards, and they normally come with all kinds of layers of foam.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. My only gripe is since I went for a UK layout, replacements caps are pretty much out of the question for me.

We focused on the least frequently used digits, the thumbs, and let them work with the Function keys. 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.In addition, there are plans to sell iPad and MacBook case handmade from material representative of the Nishijin-ori used to make Japanese kimonos. With the Minila, I was able to take the board apart - first the frame - this is tough to do, almost as if they never thought anyone should do this. I appreciate the arrow keys and that more than outweighs the issues I have with the other keys - though the 1u right shift might be close. Were it not for the unexpected bulk of the case, I think I'd be satisfied with the Minila Air thanks to its obvious excellence in most other respects.
