If this keyboard indeed has a visible capacity of lasting for 20+ years, I see no reason not to purchase it, thank you very much for your help.

The higher key loudness is not a problem for me whatsoever, by the way.

the loudest this keyboard will be is when your gaming and apply a lot of force when bottoming out.

have a listen to the steelseries 7G in this video it has Cherry MX Black Linear switches. Cherry MX switches are quieter than Alps or Buckling Spring.

the Cherry MX Black Linear switches will be even quieter in the Deck 82 because they are PCB mounted unlike the steelseries 7g.

Just ordered my Das Model S Ultimate Silent with US layout!
143 euro including shipping, and thanks to vouchers I got a "TV pirate remote" (worth 14 euro) and an "Any Key" (worth 3.90 euro)

Gonna check if I can get the OCN flame key too

I recommend you wait until your 30 day return policy expires with Deck before buying one.

You don't need to be a frequent user. When I switched from my G15 to my ABS M1 (which mind you is a low-end mechanical), I already found my G15 to be mushy and unresponsive within three days.

I just went for the Das Model S for my girlfriend's sake. I think "Clicky-clacky" isn't something she'd like to hear at 1 in the morning

It's definitely a viable statement. IBM Model M keyboards are decades old yet many of them are still working just fine. I actually bought my own keyboard (Das Model S Silent) with the mindset that I won't be switching anytime soon. After trying it out for a day, I think that's a very accurate assessment. Very crisp and sharp tactile feel (Cherry MX Brown switches), so I don't think I'd choose a keyboard over this anytime soon!
