But that one like got hole at the sides, seems. Like dust can still come in that way?

You can try searching for 键盘防尘 if you want silicone type...

Anyway I've been using the cherry nature white for a day now. Seems a little too stiff for my liking. Not sure if I should have gone for reds instead?

I used to use a Filco Majestouch 2 with Cherry MX red switches. Now, I use a Leopold FC660C and am looking to my next Topre keyboard - possibly a Realforce 87UB with 55g uniform actuation. Once you go Topre, you can never go back! but oh, what an expensive hobby this is becoming...
just curious, u prefer leopold or filco? how similar are they? i am looking to get the cherry brown

I have a leopold and a filco. If you want honest opinion i can tell you this. The build quality on the filco is one notch higher than leopold. Not saying leopold is poor or what, it's still a very well build KB. But the Filco is simply on another level in term of build quality. Period.

You can consider ZhuQue if you like replaceable switches.

My experience with Filco last time wasn't very good though. Granted, it was one of the early MJ2s. The plastic creaked when I pressed down the sides. And even on PS/2 there wasn't NKRO support when numlock was enabled. The Ducky that I'm using now seems to be of surprisingly higher quality.

I was looking at a IKBC the other day. Seems decent, with Cherry MX switches for under $100 after shipping. The only 'flaw' is that the menu button becomes the fn key and there doesn't seem to be any dip switches to resolve it.

You are looking from bad to good or good to bad in terms of left to right?

Filco keycaps fade quite easily... Think you need a replacement. Have you tried taobao? Not sure if they have.

Anyway, if anyone is interested, I'm offloading a slightly used ducky shine 5 nature white and ducky one red

One of the cheapest KB around using Cherry MX switches (blue in this case). Singapore brand, also sold in Challenger:

Anyone have a review of this keyboard?
