Choosing a new keyboard

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to replace my really old POS Microsoft keyboard that I've been using for a couple of years, and I seem to have narrowed it down to two: the Razer BW regular edition and the Das S Pro w/brown mx switches. I'm really liking the design of the BW, plus it is much cheaper than the Das, but I have a few concerns. I've read a couple of reviews and many of them have concerns revolving around the lack of full NKRO on the BW. Has anyone run into any problems with this? And there is usually a comment or two about the build quality of BW - can anyone expand on that?

BW got a pretty good build quality. they are 2KRO.
and gaming optimized cluster.
Das, nothing to worry about it.
they got good build quality, and more support NKRO

Das has issues with the keycap legends fading off. Unless of course you get a blank one.

The BW keycaps are probably relatively durable, most of the transparent ones tend to be.
