Well the das will have a more tactile feel since it is using cherry blues which have the tactile bump/click whereas the steelseries are Cherry blacks and are linear switches which just get harder to press without a tactile bump/click. So it comes down more to personal preference, but it is said that the black switches are better for gaming and blues are better for typing on. *shrug* Hope that was helpful but I would assume you already knew all that.

They are both good quality keyboard. The DAS keyboard has a glossy surface that attracts dirt while the SteelSeries have a matte surface.

Which keyboard you go with depends on what you are using it for.

Blue switch (Das Keyboard Professional) - These are the best switches for typing. The Blue switch take more force than the Brown switch, but less than the Black switches.

Black switch (SteelSeries 6Gv2) - These are good for gaming especially for FPS gaming, but they can make your fingers tired after long use because of it takes more forces to push down these keys. These are good for Counter Strike, Call of Duty, and other FPS.

Brown switch (Das Keyboard Professional Silent) - These are good all around switches that are good for both typing and gaming. You can double tap fast on these switches, so these are the best keyboard for a RTS gamer.

Hmm I guess I might go for the SteelSeries since I want to use it more for CSS and BF3.

Well I use a Steelseries 7G and I quite like it, the thing is built like a tank and can literally be used as a makeshift weapon. The keys are a bit weird at first but once you start using it it is much better than a membrane keyboard. I have typed on a oldschool IBM model M before and the buckling springs do give a nicer feedback for typing I think but, personally I would much rather have my steelseries for gaming. I haven't tried any of the other keyswitches so, my opinion is biased but the steelseries is nicer than anything I used before it.

Granted I realize you are talking about the 6G which from what I know is pretty much the same as the 7G. Oh one other thing, the 7G does have a oldschool enter/return style key and a very small backspace key which can get really annoying at first.

one last thing I am not certain but the steelseries store was just having a sale (just got a sensei and mousepad) which gives 30% off with the promo code dv2011. The code doesnt work with the sensei though, unfortunately.
