TwoCables introduced me to the Filco Majestouch when I first posted in this section, but later on Imnop suggested the Das.

I would have gotten the Das for the price, but for the build and layout, (there's no media/glossy frame), my $210 CAD filco is satisfactory. It was shipped over USPS international mail here in Canada, and I got it under three weeks of wait, which is pretty aw'some.

Would I buy it again? Maybe. But it really depends on what layout you desire. They have both pros and cons and are manufactured by Costar.

From what it appears, there were Das models that had media keys. (I'm new to this, throw me a bone here) Apparently, they're discontinued (according to TwoCables' link) and now just have a standard layout. If there was a Das with media keys I could get my hands on, I'd love it to death. But since they both have the same/nearly the same layout now, I'll stick the cheaper alternative.

EDIT: Alright, I ordered it. Wish me luck! If I like it, I'll thank you guys. (if I don't, I'll just have to cry for a few days that I spent $120 on a keyboard.)

Elitekeyboards had the US version of those for a short while. I'm guessing they're sold out. I don't think there will be more.

You're welcome!

You're right! I totally forgot about that, but Crazy9000's reply summed it up very well.

Unfortunately. But, it would probably be worth it if you can spend some time saving up enough money to buy one. But I am not one to talk because I don't have that kind of patience.

Well, I'd say that the click sound of the Buckling Spring switch type is noticeably louder than the click sound of let's say the Cherry MX Blue switch type, but I don't think that I'd call it significantly louder or anything like that. However, everyone's opinion regarding how much louder the Buckling Spring switches are is different, so I recommend using YouTube.

If you need search ideas, then just search for things like "IBM Model M", "unicomp customizer", "unicomp spacesaver", buckling spring", etc. And then search for things like "cherry mx blue" (actually, I think just searching for "cherry mx blue" will inspire other search criteria).

I don't know yet, so I would like to know too! So to anyone who knows: do we know yet whether or not the Buckling Spring switches last longer than Cherry MX switches? It's my guess that they do, but I want to be sure.

This is a good question, and it's usually one I have a tough time answering. So, I'll leave it up to those who know.

Oh, did you order the plain 104-key Filco Majestouch Tactile Touch? By "plain", I'm referring to the non-NKRO version.

the Das Model S Professional at Sidewinder Computers is now $109. they must of upped the price recently. the product photo is the old Das Professional but the photos beneath it are the Das Model S Professional with Media Keys.

Oh, I would've considered it if I hadn't ordered already.

And yes, TwoCables, I got the non-NKRO. Its comes with a PS/2 adapter, but I assume since it's just an adapter NKRO won't work with it. In fact, I don't even see a PS/2 version, all of them use adapters.
