When i hear "keypad", the first thing that comes into my mind is a door-entry keypad.

Accountants call it a ten-key. Arguably we use it the most also.

Me, too. That's why I went with the Pro.

CLOSE THE BLAST DOORS!!!!!!!!

I don't see why it really matters that much . Ten-key or numpad or whatever. I don't see how tenkey doesn't describe it well enough. Ten key doesn't have to have the extras like -+*... Its just numbers 0-9...

Speaking of which, I have a student discount code for DAS now, only problem is I'm thinking about getting a tenkeyless ducky or leopold instead . The das seems kinda ugly. I use my tenkey a lot, but it would be nice to have the mouse closer.

As i've never used a mechanical keyboard before, I think, I don't have alot of knowledge with this.

The only keyboard I knew was mechanical before reading this thread was the Steelseries 7G. I really like the design of the steelseries but I wonder why there aren't many people here who have it?

The brands that are named often are ABS, Filco, Ducky, DAS etc... Why are these much popular compared to the Steelseries 7G? Or am I wrong and is the 7G a wonderfull keyboard?

Whould the 7G allready be a huge step forward compared to my old nosiy Dell keyboard? If not, what do you guys recommend?

Mainly because the 7G is considered to be a 'gaming' mechanical keyboard.
Most people here prefer something between gaming and typing, or just typing keyboards.

What are the differences between gaming and typing (office) keyboards?

Read the descriptions for the blue (typing) black (gaming) and brown (middle) Cherry MX switches in the OP to get an idea.

Gaming tends to favor key switches that are unobtrusive, whereas people like keyboards with lots of tactile feedback. There are key switch types that are good for both, and in many cases, it's a matter of preference.
