Cheaper than the Das (and of similar/slightly superior build quality) and better built than the Razer.

If you want a numpad, then I'd get the Rosewill RK9000 which is the same price.

A rubber keyboard is easier, cost never matters, i care about what is better and it's not mechanical.
Actually, isn't it quite the opposite? Cherry switches actuate about 2mm, or halfway down the keystroke whereas on a rubber dome keyboard you need to push all the way down?

Yep. I think that hes actually comparing scissor switch laptop keyboards to larger rubber dome keyboards, instead of mechanical keyboards. Scissor switch rubber domes have to be pushed down all the way too, its just not a very far distance

^ I'd go with a Leopold w/ blue switches. Never been a fan of that shiny part on Das keyboards but that's just me though.
