So, why did they get rid of the media keys on the Das keyboards?

Yep I was going to try and have one posted from the States, but consider import duty, handling fees, VAT (a 17.5% tax), ~$50 in postage costs and warranties and it begins to look like a very bad idea.

To be honest I'm finding it pretty hard to bring myself to spend more than £50 on a keyboard, but if the only alternative is some crappy Logitech then I'll have no choice.

where do you think mechanical keyboards are manufactured? Asia has many clones and rare mechanical keyboards on the market.

One other thing the Das has going for it is excellent customer support from Metadot. When I originally purchased mine, it arrived with what I presume where mis-printed J and K keys, because the raised "nub" was on the K key, while the J was smooth. Needless to say, this drove me nuts for touch typing. Metadot immediately offered to ship me replacement keys for free, or exchange the entire board if I was not comfortable pulling keys (lol). Very nice people. -bionicroach @ Geek Hack

Perhaps there's hope for my anxiety.

Wasn't there a user here who had a bad experience with their support though? Maybe you should contact support and see how it goes to break the tie.
