das keyboard - safe to by on ebay?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i need a new keyboard and i was looking at das cherry mx brown.

http://www.amazon.com/Das-Keyboard-Ultimate-Tactile-Mechanical/dp/B003M4XGI4/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1376498956&sr=8-3&keywords=das+keyboard



it is quite a bit a cheaper on ebay, i was wondering if it is a knock off or the actual keyboard.

Tn general is it common to find imitation keyboards.

Thank you for your time.

The board on eBay is used thus the price difference. I bought my Dad a Das Professional Model S and it is a rock solid keyboard but the glossy finish shows every microscopic dust particle. Other than that it is a great keyboard.

Mechanicalkeyboards.com has the same keyboard for $128.03 with free shipping and they most likely do not charge sales tax unlike Amazon.

As far as imitation/knock-off/counterfeit keyboards are concerned I've never seen one. It is more likely that someone would get a cheap mechanical keyboard with counterfeit Cherry switches than a completely counterfeit keyboard.
