I tend to agree with TwoCables that the difference will be no biggie.

Maybe the DAS is cooler/gloss, but I don't really care about the cable being longer, or all those other USB stuff that I won't use, if not, at all.

The only distributor for the DAS in canada do not have the professional model in stock.

Thank you Christine for the analysis!

By the way, my order shipped! So no way i'm returning it to buy a DAS. Hopefully the tactile click will be excellent.

One last question : Does the DAS connect through PS/2 for NKRO?

Wow.

I bought my filco $170...

Now i'm really thinking about returning it, I could buy the DAS for $60 less! And spend that on a mouse.

EDIT : I just read this.

So it all comes down to personal preference... Mm..

lol don't let somebody literally tell you which keyboard to get. That's like letting somebody tell you exactly which shoes to buy or something like that.

I guarantee you that once you begin using the Filco, you're going to be wondering why you spent all of this time and energy worrying about it and wondering if you're actually going to like it.



Edit: I just noticed that he said to think of plastic dominoes. But to me, the click sound actually reminds me of the sound of ivory dominoes tapping each other.

I won't return it.

Anyway, if I did, I would have to pay the shipping once again, so even more lost money.

The filco is really the perfect keyboard. I just thought about the DAS S: the scratches and the glossy thing, that's not my type of keyboard, really.

The USB hub? There are two on my computer (HAF 922 case).

Better plastics? As long as the filco's doesn't fail, then it's just fine.

Better keycaps? Maybe. I don't mind.

I know.

I already made my decision, though.

Filco Tactile Click NKRO is already on its way to Canada, what can I do about that?

Yep. And he also mentioned the Model S and yet he still said that it all boils down to personal preference. This is why I chose the Filco and not the Model S that does not have the media keys.

He said [at the very end of the article] and I quote:

"The Das S also added multimedia keys. Although useful for many the FCN key took away some valuable key real estate (especially for Apple users) so Metadot offers now a version without the media keys.

ALL Das keyboards have been updated to fix their firmware issues so really it now boils down to personal preference. However if you want TenKeyless Metadot still does not offer a "mini" version."

Again: he said that it all boils down to personal preference. You see, the Das Model S is the clear winner for you. Does that mean that it's the clear winner for everyone? Absolutely not. For example: the Filco Majestouch is the clear winner for me. Why? Because that's my preference. How do I know that it's my preference? Because I compared the two for a very long time before I made my final decision.

So stop trying to tell Yann that he should have ordered the Das instead. As he already stated quite clearly: he knows that he would not like the Das Model S as much as the Filco. Let the man breathe already.
