This review is from: Das Keyboard Professional S DASK3MKPRORED Black 104 Normal Keys USB 2.0 Wired Gaming Keyboard - MX Red
Pros: First off - a little preface. I don't use this keyboard for gaming - I use it in a professional environment (I do quite a bit of SQL / HTML / CSS / and standard typing) and I wanted something a bit more robust than a standard keyboard. Looking in to keyboards I found Das Keyboards and they looked really good. For the most part, this keyboard is awesome - it's very very slightly clicky (it sounds good) and MX Red switches are perfect for a work environment (Black or Brown would have been fine too).
So, on to the pros - I am a fairly fast typer (110 WPM+) and this keyboard doesn't disappoint in that at all. It registers every key press just fine no matter how fast you are typing.
As I said, it's ever so slightly clicky, which I do really like, but it's not loud enough to annoy my co-workers (like an MX Blue probably would be).
All in all, it's really robust, the Red switches are really nice and I've not been disappointed in the quality of the keyboard.
Cons: The only con I have is that the images don't show how absolutely high gloss the keyboard is. I'm not a "high gloss" person because it shows every little finger print and smudge. The keys obviously aren't, but the housing of the keyboard is. It comes with a little rag to wipe it off with and I always keep some microfibre rags handy at my desk because... of course, not being a high gloss person, my monitors happen to have a high gloss bezel.
That said, it doesn't take away from the functionality at all, it just shows ever little smudge. When it's clean it looks great, just keeping it clean is tough.
I am one of those function over looks people as well, and it functions so well that I can't say it's too much of a negative.
The high gloss may be a pro to some people, so I'm not going to dock any eggs for it as it is purely personal preference.
Other Thoughts: All in all, for the price, probably a pretty good buy. I know it's going to last me quite a few years, so I'm not upset about it. It also feels much better than a standard keyboard being a mechanical keyboard.
I'm pretty pleased with it.
