Ya I loved my 7G until I was able to grab an IBM Model M for cheap. Then when I moved on to the blue keyswitches in my Filco, it was like first love . Now going back to my 7G just feels wrong in my opinion.

Yes the keycaps on the black switches pop off really easy. Especially the keys at the bottom if you don't hit them straight on.

Annoying or sexy depending on the person. I personally love the sound of the blues clacking away. Although I do live alone. I am sure if I had someone living with me they would rather rather annoyed with me.
