Great Keyboard When Alive

Braydon R., Newegg
17 May 2014
  • Pros: I used this keyboard at work for the past 19 months and it types really well, provides great feedback, and looks awesome.
  • Cons: My keyboard has died today, keeps getting really hot by the led indicators and did melt some of the plastic to create a dent in the frame. I look online and find out there is no manufacture warranty. I expect a $130 keyboard to come with something like this and must have overlooked it. I also exp...

Rediculously Cool

Nathan B., Newegg
22 February 2014
  • Summary: This keyboard is heavy. It's almost like it's built out of actual stuff. My old keyboard was wireless and had more keys and a larger footprint, but weights substantially less. Makes me think that my old keyboard was made of styrofoam.
  • Pros: - Awesome Feel - Awesome Sound - Awesome Aesthetics - Saves desk space - Keeps siblings and friends off of my computer
  • Cons: - Shows dust easily (minor) - Thick cord comes a bit kinked up (minor) - Makes it impossible for siblings and friends to borrow my computer

A typing experience like no other

Joseph V., Newegg
7 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought this keyboard for the experience of typing. I definitely got my money's worth the second I started using it. When I had a normal labeled-keyboard I found myself cheating very often by looking down to see the first letter I am typing.
  • Pros: 1. Mechanical keys are pleasant to type. Going from a non-mechanical keyboard to a mechanical keyboard was a big upgrade for me so I really appreciate the tactical feedback from typing. 2. The typing noise is pleasing and give me reassurance when I hit a key. 3. Very quick registration from the k...

Unlucky?

D H., Newegg
14 November 2013
  • Pros: Feels like a solid board, I like it for typing and gaming. Not a whole lot of difference with some other mechanical keyboards I tried like rosewill etc.. but this definitely feels better
  • Cons: My enter and backspace key squeaks... pretty bad.... might just be unlucky but who knows going to RMA this...

Little typing ninjas

Landon G., Newegg
22 June 2013
  • Summary: Soooo addicting. The sound, the smell, the feel, and all the things. It is overall great. Many people complain about the glossy finish, but I don't really see that as a downside because I don't rest my hands on that part of the keyboard and it really doesn't collect that much dust.
  • Pros: This keyboard is great! This is my first mechanical keyboard and I was kind of skeptical that the price was worth it. After only typing on it for part of a day I'm hooked. The response from the keyboard is fantastic and it very addicting to type on. I have tried both speed typing, programming and...
  • Cons: It isn't really "silent." With the o-ring mod it muffles the sound and makes it feel a bit more like the standard run of the mill keyboard. I personally didn't appreciate the difference the orings made and decided not to install them. I would say if you are looking for true silence you look at so...

very nice keyboard

jonathan F., Newegg
1 February 2013
  • Summary: This does not have any printed keycaps at all, and while it does not detract from the quality, it does pose a problem for people who are not touch-typists. I wanted to get the printed keycap version of this when it was on sale, but they were gone fast.
  • Pros: The keyboard is quite sturdy, and the addition of two USB inputs in the keyboard means you dont give up any to use this, or if you use the PS/2 adapter, you come away with an extra one.
  • Cons: the polished look will easily show fingerprints and scratches over time, even with the included cloth. Also, while the USB hub is great to have, it is not in the best location on the keyboard, which is right where I am using my mouse. The cord is very thick, and so i had to drill a larger hole in...

Guys really?

Dongwoo K., Newegg
16 January 2013
  • Summary: May be you can use this stupid keyboard for music like drum.... But, not for silent keyboard that you can use for working. I bought this keyboard just looking at 5 stars in rate and silent in name because I didn't have much time when I looked at it.
  • Pros: Not much pros for me ....
  • Cons: It is soooooo loud I can't even do anything with this keyboard. Don't believe the silent part in name of this keyboard. I can't even listen to music while typing with this keyboard. This keyboard might make you feel like you are typing fast with this loud sound but It is annoying me so much right...

Great Keyboard!

DEREK A., Newegg
16 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this keyboard to use at work and to help to correct the bad typing habits I've picked up over the years. It's definitely helped me and now I am getting much better and more accurate at laying down text, which is terrific!
  • Pros: This is the first mechanical keyboard I've bought and I am quite happy with it. The unit has good weight and looks great to boot. The buttons feel very crisp and it isn't uncomfortable to use. The USB ports are a nice touch and I love the overall sleek-but-subtle design.
  • Cons: This keyboard isn't exactly "silent" and doesn't have any special features. It also picks up fingerprints and debris easily but obviously that is going to hold true for almost any keyboard that is used on a daily basis.

Not silent, still great keyboard

Alex C., Newegg
14 January 2013
  • Pros: This keyboard feels dependable and looks great. It has a really good feel and great key action.
  • Cons: Silent? Not in the slightest. I upgraded from the original Das Keyboard model (which isn't quiet at all, either), and it's actually both louder and higher-pitched than the original Das Keyboard.

This keyboard will get you laid

Ryan M., Newegg
27 November 2012
  • Summary: Super high quality. It's not the best for new typists or those who still get caught up on trickier letters/words but great for anyone looking for a well-built piece of hardware that looks and performs at the top of its class.
  • Pros: It's blank. If you can touch-type this won't make a difference at all to you and will significantly increase the intimidation factor when non-touch-typists see your keyboard. This will force you to stop looking at the keyboard while you type. You can still glance at the keyboard if you wish but y...
  • Cons: It's blank. If you haven't memorized what symbols are where in the number row you're in for a fun game of guess-and-check. If you don't know how to touch-type this is likely the worst keyboard you could possibly purchase until you are able to learn.
