Just bought a new DAS Keyboard

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Well I hauled off and bought a DAS Model S Silent with the Cherry MX Brown switches, was curious as to how they feel under your fingers comapred to the membrane, I've never used one and have no idea how they will feel I just heard it was a good mechanical keyboard and bought one, anyone want to tell me what they think of it?

On a side note, what do you guys think of my decision to buy the Razer Deathadder (obviously for gaming)

yes, it doesn't have the mushy feel that a membrane board does.

also, you don't need to bottom out to activate the switch. but you'll bottom out anyway, since you've been used to membrane boards for a long time. but you'll get better when you use it more! you'll enjoy your new board

I have a Das Ultimate Blank, Cherry MX Blues. I like everything about it aside from the glossiness. It has turned me off to the point in which if I randomly get money to afford another nice mechanical keyboard, I'm retiring this one.

What's wrong with the glosiness might I ask?

the same thing that's wrong with everything glossy.

dust/finger print magnet. but nothing a piece of cloth can't fix

It's a magnet to fingerprints and everything and anything that can possibly be visible on it / stick to it. Sure, you can clean it, but you get tired of constantly cleaning it after some time.

Yah That's cool, also none of these come with a wrist rest, do many of you type without one? I have this Microsoft Reclusa right now, and it happened to have one, is it hard to type without I really can't remember, what's the serious difference? and do any of you prefer not ot have one.
