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...

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.

Very good

Gabrielle G., Newegg
16 October 2012
  • Summary: I love it.
  • Pros: It's my first mechanical and I must say I'm impressed. I didn't believe a keyboard would make such difference, but now I do. The board itself is very solid and screams quality; I've never seen a nicer keyboard before. And it's full nkro.
  • Cons: -Pretty expensive, even on sale -The person who decided to market this keyboard as "Silent" must be deaf. I was aware that the sound of the keyboard would be clicky, and I don't mind it, but saying it's silent is an insult. Remove the "silent" from the product name and you would have a full 5 sta...

Excellent Quality but....

Jeffrey K., Newegg
1 September 2012
  • Summary: The cherry brown mechanical key switches on this keyboard does not have the same satisfying tactile feedback that the cherry blue mechanical keys have. The big advantage of the cherry browns being "silent", at least on this specific keyboard, is minimal at best.
  • Pros: Everything about this keyboard screams high quality and solid construction. Simple, elegant, and not flashy.
  • Cons: I was disappointed with the "Silent" part of it. Frankly, its not much quieter than my Razer Blackwidow Ultimate which uses cherry blue key switches. It comes with virtually no bells and whistles, but you should know that coming in. Like the blackwidow, this keyboard also suffers from having its ...

  • Cons: Very expensive.

Nice keybord, it's only that

Star Wong, Amazon

  • Summary: The keyboard is really great!!! The mechanical keyboard feels good. But the only problem is that it uses 2 USB portals, and that's too much for a laptop

Sticky space bar

Jordain J., Amazon
4 December 2013
  • Summary: I really like the keyboard, but I found when I first got the keyboard the space bar was kind of sticky. It's been about a month and the space bar is still a bit sticky but not as bad as when I first got it. I assume the problem will eventually go away.
