The Das Silent is one that I was looking at, but price was keeping me away. 24% discount is quite nice, and I think I can probably spend $100 on a quality keyboard without feeling too guilty. Any last advice from anyone before I pull the trigger on the Das Professional Silent? http://www.daskeyboard.com/model-s-professional-silent/
A good mechanical keyboard with the Browns like the Das Model S Professional Silent should produce about the same decibel level due to the inevitable bottoming out that you'll be doing at first (due to being accustomed to typing on the rubber domes), but all the sounds that the keyboard produces are easier on the ears thanks to the high level of quality.

But now the clicks of the Cherry MX Blues add an increased sense of precision, except there is that slight chance that you may have a little bit of trouble double tapping. However, I don't have that problem because when I want 2 or more fast keystrokes right in a row, I can't help but raise my finger all the way off the key in between strokes (that is, when imagining this in slow motion). So if you do the same thing, then the Cherry MX Blues would definitely be an option.

Good to know--thanks! I think I'll get the Das Professional Silent when they email me back about the educational discount.

As long as you are 100% sure!

But now I remember someone said way earlier (like a couple of days ago now) that the Cherry MX Blues have an actuation force of 55g. The original post of this thread (the Mechanical Keyboard Guide) says it's 50g. Going further, the Cherry MX Whites are said to be like a stiffer Brown and even stiffer than the Blues. If this is true, then the Cherry MX Blues are not 55g, but 50g. Or, maybe it's that the Clears are 60g, but the documentation just says 55g. I don't know.

Regardless of all of that, I can just tell you this: typing on the Cherry MX Blues is a real pleasure. So, don't be afraid of the Blues if you think they might be too stiff or something.

Yeah, that was me, I got the numbers mixed up. Blues are rated for 50g and Whites at 55g.

That said, Cherry's specs are for the resistance is the point of actuation, not the stiffest point of the travel in the switch. In any of their non-linear switches, there's a hump in the force graph before the actuation point that requires about 10g more force to overcome than the actuation point. This means that a Blue Cherry is 60g at its stiffest point, a Brown 55g and so on. It makes comparison difficult with switches where either peak force is specified, or the actuation point is also the stiffest point in the travel.
