That's good news. Thanks for the info.

I recently purchased a Das professional and I was wondering if anyone can comment on the key letters fading. Despite the laser etching, I have heard of a few with this problem. I have sweaty hands from time to time and was wondering if this was an issue.

wow! thanks for the link to your thread; it's ridiculously insightful and unconventionally interesting. Now, this may be some time down the road but do you know if there's a kbc engraved keycaps as a Das keycap replacement? if so, where would that be?

See this post. Das = Filco keys in terms of shape and plastic - even the molds are the same.

Hey guys, my first post here on Overclock.net. Thanks for making this wonderful thread, I had never looked into keyboards so much in depth and I learned a lot from reading the OP. I think I am ready to upgrade from my MS Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000

My situation is that as a full-time developer, a part-time hacker and an occasional gamer I type anywhere between 10-14 hours a day. I've recently burned out my left pinky finger because of holding the really hard CTRL key on my keyboard for too long and now I can barely use it without pain, so I've had to bandage it up and avoid relying on it for a few days.

I'm ready to spend whatever it takes to go easy on my hands, and if it means blowing through 300 bucks for a Topre keyboard, so be it. My prob is that after looking through elitekeyboards.com there's just too much choice out there, and I was hoping you guys might advise me.

I've temporarily discounted getting a HHKB because I'm not sure I'll be able to survive without arrows, so I've been looking at the Realforce 103B or the 87U Tenkeyless.

Does anybody have experience with them? Is there anything better out there for someone who'd like to stick to regular key configurations for now? Also, why is the smaller version (87U) almost 50% more expensive than the full-blow one?

Thanks!

Custom order. And that pesky supply/demand curve.

Could you give me a bit more context for this? I'm still very new to the pro keyboards universe

Topre doesn't normally make the 87u. Leopold or someone with enough sway got Topre to make a run for them, and EK eventually got their hands on them.

86u is the normal board that Topre produces.
