Every click....so satisfying

Kyle Z., Newegg
28 March 2013
  • Summary: Well worth the 130. Not sure why people are complaining about the blank keycaps, thats the whole reason for the ultimate s series, if you want marks on the keycaps they make a series with marks and you should look into that keyboard instead.
  • Pros: Awesome keyboard. I upgraded from a Razer Lycosa and its a night and day difference between keyboards. The mechaical click of every key is so satisfying to hear, the blank keys are great for intermediate typers to improve their wpm. Durable.
  • Cons: One small issue ive been having for the last 2 months or so is with the 2 USB ports on the side of the keyboard. I use 1 (the top one) almost all the time to charge and sync my iphone. When i connect a flash drive, or camera to the second USB port, my iphone will disconnect then reconnect right a...

Great Keyboard!

Jose A., Newegg
25 March 2013
  • Summary: Be Prepared to and willing to learn how to type without looking at the keys, when you do peek youre gonna find that There is absolutely nothing to help you. Great intimidating keyboard for us typing noobs.
  • Pros: This is my first mechanical keyboard, I am very happy with it because I am actually learning how to type using all 10 fingers. My main purpose for this keyboard is gaming. It looks very intimidating and goes well with my Razer Naga mouse. They both have a black matte/ glossy finish. The Cherry Bl...
  • Cons: Some keys make a horrific squeaky sound, especially the space bar. That can get really annoying if you're using the space bar a lot. Not recommended for anyone who doesn not know how to type without looking at the keyboard and is not willing to learn. I have always wanted to learn how to type wit...

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...

Decent Keyboard

Jonathan C., Newegg
18 January 2013
  • Summary: I ended up ordering a set of O-rings from WSAD's website. That cut down the noise significantly. As a side benefit, when I reassembled the space keys the horrible squeaking noise went away. I had bought lithium grease for this.
  • Pros: Base of keyboard feels solid. Response time is excellent. Has two USB slots on the side. Has board elevators (although the seem a little cheap). Keys are solid black!
  • Cons: Keys feel a little cheap (as with all the plastic on the board). When I received mine the space bar squeaked like crazy. I work in an office environment and this thing was entirely too noisy. But that's what you get with a mechanical keyboard. Still.. at this price point, I sort of expected highe...

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

Frédéric F., 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 ...

Love it

Anonymous, Newegg
19 February 2012
  • Pros: Sounds clicky and works great.
  • Cons: Gets dusty, the lights around the num-lock, scroll-lock, and caps-lock has light leakage. You can see the LED light come from under the indicator. Hard to explain. For the money you pay it seems like an oversight that shouldn't have happened. I am also not a fan of the bulge on the right hand sid...
