The keyboard it self is too big has too much random space everything making everyhting heaps far apart, Anyway So i am looking at either getting a

I would go with Das, it's quieter, mechanical goodness, than the other mechanical goodness.

Apparently just smacking silent onto the name actually makes people believe it's silent...

I'll tell you what, no, it's not silent. especially if youre bottoming out.

Both are browns anyways, same switches.

Das is a fingerprint magnet and costs 50 bucks more

Last i remember, Leopolds were regarded as the cheap man's filco...as in quality is amazing.

Yeah I figured they should feel the same being the same switch type, but i have read that the DAS has a very nice feel to typing on it. And i haven't heard anything bad about either so im not really sure. Im thinking more the leopold as its cheaper and should be the same.

Leopold - I have a Leopold, my friend had a Das ultimate, but just switched to a Leopold and says he cant go back to his Das. The Das has a glossy finish, which looks really good as long as you clean it from finger prints every hour or so... The Leopold has superb build quality, the fact that it is refered to as the "poor mans filco" is kinda funny imo as the same person who designed the Filco, also designed the Leopold so really the Leopold is kinda Filco 2.0 in a sense. If you post this question over on GeekHack they'll prob tell you Leopold as well, as a lot of people over there dont like the build quality of the Das or the glossy finish.

Leopold Pros:
-Superior Build Quality
-The cable is detachable
-There is a slit that runs along the bottom that is used for routing the cable to the left or right of the keyboard
-Non-Glossy Finish
-Comes in tenkeyless (if you're into that)
-Cheaper
-Full NKRO with p2
Das Pros:
-It has USB Ports
-Full NKRO with p2
-When you tell your friends how much your keyboard cost you can brag and say 150 instead of 110...
-Glossy finish can be used as a poor mans mirror for your GF when she puts her make up on
