Thanks guys, will be going with the browns! First it seemed I wanted the clicking feedback of the blues, but now I'm sold on the quieter key presses, and the lighter touch!

Random question, do those current Das kb's have the Fn keys setup as media keys? Or were those just the previous model s?

Just the previous Model S unfortunately. People complained they needed the windows key so they removed the media keys. I wonder why, i always use alt+tab and never had a problem with it.

Can't go wrong with either for gaming + some typing. Just make sure you get a quality board with N-Key Rollover ( Filco, Das, Steelseries ). Like people on the thread have said, if you get a Das w/browns, get the student discount. The Steelseries 6Gv2 is $99 and the Das is $99 w/discount. The only reason to spend 30-40 more for the Filco is if you wanted the 10 Keyless form factor.

Windows key has a lot more function then just minimizing a game. Personally I think its better this way because you can setup your own functions in Windows easily.

Ah right, didn't thought through it, using several windows shortcuts like e.g. ofcourse windows+E and such.

Metadot never gave a official explanation why they removed them.

If you look back at reviews and such when they were doing that, almost all of them complain about the fn key. Also there's a few guides on how to disable or remap the fn key. It doesn't seem like it was very popular, despite the fact that someone comes in this thread every other day wanting media keys lol.

I read the media keys gave mac users problems. people have e-mailed Metadot to ask why and Metadot replies "read our blog" but nothing there.

The reason why they took off the old Fn key makes perfect sense. It was located in the stupidest spot ever. That is no reason why they can't include one in general. They can include one next to the F keys like a lot of desktop kb's do...
