Just purchased first mechanical keyboard!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I just got the Das Keyboard in the mail and it is my first mechanical keyboard! My first impression is excellent and it sure beats the crap out of my old rubber dome keyboard!

Welcome to the club!

Which DAS did you get? Mine is a Professional S with MX Blues.

I've been annoying the hell out of my colleagues at work with loads of clicks

Nice purchase. I hope you got the student discount somehow. The Das was my first mechanical keyboard, too. MX Blues at home is awesome

I believe it was close to 20% when I got it. I bought the Professional model with Cherry MX Blues for something like $98 USD

Bah, the Tarantula is so mushy. The key feel is almost worse than this Dell keyboard that I'm using right now.
