Das ultimate S silent vs G710+

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Which one would you guys take? im kind of leaning towards the G710 because it comes with so much for the same price, i.e wrist rest, o rings, backlight, macro keys, etc whereas the das just comes with the bare keyboard and nothing else. Im assuming the das is of higher quality than the g710? the G710 is slightly cheaper at around 110$, whereas the das is 135$ (no tax)

Das recently changed OEM suppliers, so the quality of post-2013 Das keyboards I can't exactly attest to the quality of those. However at $110, the G710+ is a pretty good deal considering the feature set it has, it's quality isn't bad at all, uneven backlighting risks aside.

Well i wouldnt have an issue with backlight problems, cause if i got the g710 it would be at the bestbuy down the street and if it stops working in 30 days i can just give it back to the.

Having used both, I would go with the G710+. Styling aside (which is purely subjective), you get much more bang for your buck with the G710. The DAS keyboard is well made, yes, but it is pretty lackluster in the features department. I think you're paying a premium for the idea of having a keyboard with a reputation for being "uber high quality." Don't get me wrong, this isn't a bad reputation to have! It's just that these days, there are plenty of well made keyboards, so you might as well pick the one with the features to back up the price.
