Looks good, I almost went w/ the white keys too but figured they would show grime faster. How are yours doing?

You should be fine as long as you don't use cheeto dust covered fingers to type on a regular basis. Just think of it as a way to train yourself to keep your fingers/hands tidy

I don't care for the WASD case. I also would like to see him up-grade to PBT key caps at some point. But, his boards are of good quality and he stands behind them with excellent customer service I am happy that he is doing well, and he deserves any amount of profit that he is making.

When he expands his options such as PBT key caps, and tenkeyless boards, back lighting (maybe) etc. He will see even more purchases ... especially because of his customer service the first time around with his customers.

I recommend those dampening pads if people decide to go with a board from WASD, they are cheaper at Elite, but the fact that he installs them is a nice bonus. Congrats to the OP!

But that was my fault, the keyboard is awesome!
You see, with the Das Ultimate...
there are no keys to look at.

As a potential first time mech keyboard owner, it was hard for me to find a lot of quality typing sound tests for the different Cherry MX Switches. I went onto WASD's Facebook Page and found one of the best reviews ever.

Sounds like I'm getting the Cherry MX Browns with O-Rings

Yah I am worried about this as well. I got engraved keys and the letter are already getting dark. I have a set of etched keys coming in today. I figure when these get dirty I'll just buy a new set of another color and it will be like I got a new board.

EK's pads are a completely different product than the O-rings WASD has. Many people prefer the O-rings as well.
