None of them.

If you want to stay to rubber boards buy a g110 or look for an old reclusa.

Otherwise get an Xarmor a Qpad or a mionix.

Leopold FC500R is worth looking at and has 3 different key types to pick from (blue, brown, red).

I second this (as I'm typing on one right now). Only complaint I've heard is that some don't like the high gloss finish. Here's a pic of mine:

If you go with the Das you can get a discount if you are a student.

Other popular mech brands that you may want to look at are Ducky, , Razor Blackwiddow, Steelseries 6gv2, Filco, and Leopold.

Let us know what your specifically want in a keyboard for better advice, such as switch type, NKRO, tenkeyless, if you care about media controls, macros, etc.
