For light gaming and intense coding/writing, should I go toward the Das Keyboard pro w/ blue switches then?
If you are sure that you'd like the Das Model S, then I guess I can recommend it. As for whether or not to get the regular Professional or Ultimate as opposed to a Silent variation (the Silent variations have the Cherry MX Browns), that is completely your choice.
In other words, it's best to go with the switch type that you think you would like the most. For me, that happened to be the Cherry MX Blues because not only did I like what I read about this type concerning its feel, but I really liked the sound it makes (and I still do).
How serious of a gamer are you? I mean, do you feel you're more of a casual gamer, or do you get pretty serious about it (such as practicing, perfecting your technique, etc.)? The most serious, "professional" gamers prefer the Blacks (some even prefer certain rubber dome boards). But the rest have varying preferences; some prefer the Browns, the Blues, the Buckling Spring switch type, Black or White Alps, etc.Edited by TwoCables - 7/21/10 at 8:58pm
