Does it have to be from Amazon? What options have you looked at already?

Pretty sure the Filco Majestouch 2 Doesn’t have any form of onboard memory. I don’t see why it would, anyway.

Sidenote: If I do have to go for a mechanical one, I found https://www.amazon.com/Filco-Majestouch-2-Tenkeyless-FKBN87M-EB2/dp/B004WOF7QM which I think looks pretty nice. But having trouble finding it locally (Sweden, with Swedish qwerty). So suggestions for ‘similar’ keyboards are also welcome.

I looked on Amazon and instantly found a Filco Majestouch 2 TKL in stock that ships to Croatia w/ MX Browns and ANSI layout.

The Filco Majestouch is just $10 more than your limit of 140. Worth every penny though (I have one myself)

Also try /r/mechanicalkeyboards for advice

I’ve been eyeballing this one for a while. It’s right in your budget has browns is TKL and but does not have backlighting http://www.amazon.com/Filco-Majestouch-2-Tenkeyless-FKBN87M-EB2/dp/B004WOF7QM

Edit: Also, I like how blues feel so when I thought of getting a tactile switch brown is a great option to keep my GF asleep while I play early in the morning.

Filco has nice boards, if amazon doesn’t have the black friday sales look up “filco majestouch” at some of your retailers or a shop that has them but also does the sales.

I mean, it really depends on your budget and what you like. I’ve personally never bought into the “gaming peripheral” fad – but some people swear by them so it’s whatever you prefer. I use a Filco TKL and the thing is amazing for both gaming and just general typing without any of the unnecessary stuff. The only thing you may want that this keyboard (and similar models) don’t have is backlighting which that is a feature I can completely understand. There are minimalist mechanical keyboards that do have backlighting though like the Vortex Race. There’s a newer model out now I believe, but they’re also solid keyboards. While the price might seem high, these are the type of keyboards that will easily last you 10 or 20 years if you take care of them so they do pay for themselves.

A Filco tenkeyless is “only” ~$160, or you could grab an open-box QuickFire Rapid for ~$70 as long as you want blues or browns… You can’t go wrong with Filco, but the QFR isn’t bad by any stretch.

Honestly given the range of your budget it might be a better idea to save up a bit more for a Filco Majestouch TKL or a Leopold FC750R. Both boards seem to be really well received on this sub in terms of build quality, they aren’t that much more than $100, and they come in a variety of switch types.

But if you’re just looking for something as cheap as possible to replace your current board you might want to look into something like this. You could also look on /r/mechmarket to try to find a used Quickfire TK to replace the one you have.

Filco MJ2, Ducky One TKL, Quickfire Rapid, FC750.

If you don’t mind doing a bit of modding, I think the Quickfire Rapid will actually be the best option (despite being the cheapest). Costing $70, and leaving you with $100 to spend on stuff like a Frosty Flake Controller ($35) to make it fully programmable, custom USB cable, aftermarket set of keycaps, or you can even save up a bit more for a TEX Aluminium Case ($150)
