I personally hate glossy stuff, but funny enough I've realized it's not so bad on my DAS, since I got blank keys I don't really have a point of looking at it... but when I do, I just find it pretty.

DAS is nice because you can get browns and they're VERY quiet... They make about the same amount of noise as my G19 (one of the quietest keyboard I've ever had).
The only two "noisy" key are the backspace and enter, I don't know why. Spacebar, shift, etc are all quiet.

I game a lot so that's mostly what the keyboard will be used for. I know I could get a specific gaming keyboard but I want something that's going to last a while and a mechanical keyboard seems like it'll do that.

I've narrowed it down to two choices. We have the Rosewill Cherry MX Switch Mechanical Keyboard in one corner and a Das Keyboard in the other. I'm leaning more towards the Rosewill MX simply because of the price but if the Das is an overall better quality product I'd want it more.

So anyone have experience with either of these? Which one do you think would be better for a noob who has never used a mechanical keyboard before?

Thanks for yalls help!
I think that you'd be just as happy with either keyboard because the Rosewill board is based on the Costar CST-104 which is the same board that the Filco Majestouch boards are based on. And as you might have read already, the Filco boards are very good mainstream mechanical keyboards just as the Das boards are!

I say go with the Rosewill. I just bought it (pics will be incoming to join the club!). It is a VERY high quality keyboard. The fact that it is Rosewill brand is very misleading. It is basically a rebranding of the highly-regarded Filco keyboard. It is very sturdy and is a pure joy to type on. It has a very nice matte finish as well. The gloss finish of the Das would probably bother me. And at $30+ cheaper, I think it's a no brainer.

Edit: Derp, me being stupid about the Rosewill mech. Brain was thinking Steelseries, ugh.

I ordered it from taobao, using Obook as an agent. Everything was pretty straightforward, and shipping was impressively quick, I'd definitely recommend it. I paid ~$77 for the keyboard, and ~$16 for the purple keycaps, plus shipping from China. The purple keycaps come in a 37-key set, so you can swap out the entire center section, or just mix and match like I did.

You can find the keyboard here, blues or blacks are both slightly cheaper than browns. If you decide to order it, make sure to specify you want the "青轴" option, for mx blues.

If you want the colored keys as well, flip through this link, they have quite a few colors.

Wow! Thank you! Very detailed post. OCN needs more people like you.

That keyboard is surprisingly cheap. I may end up getting one eventually. I really want one, though.
