Summary: I like the Das. The first one I received had a defective key, so I returned it and was sent a replacement, which has performed flawlessly in the month I've had it. I use it only for light to medium tasks like emailing and occasional letters but I know if I put heavy demands on it, the keyboard would deliver.
Excerpt: I am old enough to have used the original IBM model M keyboard along with the three button-ed Sun Microsystems mice on some "classic" machines at the local university.

Summary: I use this keyboard for both work and other computing tasks including games. I basically type nonstop for at least 8 hours a day in my job as a medical transcriptionist.
