I came across this review, but it didnt list as Model S. is it the same thing? was just wondering if its the same cause the vid was added in 2008 and he updated his review saying that the letterings on the keys started to fade? (thought the kb has laser etched?)

That's probably a Das Keyboard III. The Das Model S came out in 2009.

The laser etching doesn't wear, but the white color can.

I've got to get the DasKeyboard. Can I get it at some local retailer like Best Buy? Looks great and its a mechanical. I'll use it as a gaming keyboard. It looks really nice.

Edit - I found that I can order it off of http://store.daskeyboard.com/. I really like the look of it. I was wondering though, should I get the Ultimate Model S Silent or the Professional Model S Silent? For those who think getting 2 keyboards is a waste of money, I have my reasons.

Don't think* BB carries it. I heard J&R might.

I saw I could order off of Das Keyboard. They have their own website. Its pricey but to me its worth it. It has Cherry MX Brown Switches.

Edit - This may be risky but I'm going to try to paint the Das blue. I'm going towards a blue theme. I'm just gonna use the cover it with tape and have a slit on where I wanna paint it. Is it a good idea.

It is, as long as you use a paint that works well on that type of plastic.

Yeah. They should have gone with Red LED's though. I might now bother though. I don't wanna mess it up and I'm kind of lazy at points and this might be one.

Best Buy doesn't cater to people like us. We are an extremely small minority. So, almost 100% of their keyboards are rubber dome. The only real exception will be the Razer BlackWidow, but it absolutely pales in comparison to the Das Model S.

Regarding whether or not to go with blank keys: that's a decision that only you can make, really.

It'll be your keyboard, so you can do whatever you want with it. All that matters is that you are happy with your stuff.

I'm afraid to mess up with the paint. I want my first build to look awesome. If only Das sold good gaming mice. I'm the kind of person who likes more than 1 thing or everything from the same brand.
