This will be my 3rd Das Keyboard, and 5th mechanical keyboard overall. I have one of the non-silent versions with Cherry MX Blue switches, one DAS Ultimate Silent, and now the DAS Pro Silent. The tactile feel and spring tension of the Cherry MX Brown switches, in the Silent keyboards, always keeps me coming back. Most people will tell you that MX Blues(clicky) are their preference for typing, but the keyboards with the brown switches actually make me search for things to type.

I'm a heavy Starcraft 2 and League of Legends player, and the entire line of DAS Keyboards are absolutely perfect. They're a smaller form factor when compared to gaming keyboards like the Razer BlackWidow and the Logitech G15, they perform consistently, and they look great. What more could you ask for?

3 Month Update - This keyboard still feels awesome! Unfortunately, I did have to take it home for home use, as it was a bit too noisy for the rather quiet office environment I work in. To my knowledge, this is the best keyboard that money can buy.

PROS:
- Typing on this keyboard feels fantastic. I despise mushy feeling keyboards and this clicky feeling keyboard is SOOOO much better. For me, and I know this is a personal matter, getting rid of the mush in my keys was alone worth the purchase price of the keyboard. I'll be using this keyboard heavily at work, so this is not a luxury item, for me this is a work tool.
- Not too loud. It is louder than Old Mushy, yes, but I like that, and no nearby co-workers have complained about it. I will say having "Silent" in the product name is misleading, as the keyboard is not silent by any reasonable definition of the word

NEUTRALS/CONS:
- The keyboard does fingerprint easily, as noted by others, but this doesn't bother me
- USB ports are on the right-hand side. I can see this being an issue for some people, as most are right-handed and your mouse and mouse pad are right there where cables would be sticking out and MAYBE interfering with mouse movements. I don't use those ports, so this is a non-issue for me

I have made myself a note to come back in early November and update this review after using the keyboard for 3+ months.

I've been using this keyboard for a little over a month, and the key cap lettering is already noticeably fading on certain keys. There's nothing unusual about my biochemistry and I've never had this happen with much cheaper keyboards after years of use. Despite the manufacturer's touting of laser etched lettering, it doesn't seem to work. At this rate, I'll have the "Ultimate" version of this keyboard with no lettering at all.

I've been mostly using the keyboard for gaming, so it's the WASD keys that are showing the most wear. Rather than charge for replacement WASD key caps without lettering, Das Keyboard should just include them for free since they must know it's still a problem. I think Filco sells a keyboard with the lettering on the front of the keys, so this might be a good solution.

Other than this issue, the keyboard appears to be well built and solid. I think the brown switches are a good choice for both gaming and general typing. I turned off the Windows key by editing the registry since I sometimes hit it by accident and I never use it.

UPDATE (July 16, 2012)

I purchased the Filco Ninja Majestouch-2 keyboard. This is the one with the key cap lettering on the front of the keys, so the tops are blank. To me, it's the best of both worlds. The key cap lettering will never fade, yet I can still identify those keys I don't often use. I like the build quality of the Filco a little better than the Das Keyboard, although it does cost a little more. And the Filco has a matte finish. I didn't like the piano black finish of the Das Keyboard. The Filco also uses Cherry Brown switches. The only thing missing from the Filco are the USB ports, but I never used them anyway. One nice touch is that Filco includes a form-fitting keyboard cover to keep out dust and a key cap puller. Check it out as an alternative.

I am a web developer so I'm always typing a lot everyday. I got sick of my keys sticking and missing with the crappy keyboard I had at work. I did some research and found this bad boy. I don't think I'd ever go back to a silent keyboard with dome switches or any other type of switch other than a mechanical keyboard. I was skeptical at first about spending this much money on a keyboard but this thing rocks if you have to do a lot of typing.

Das Keyboard is nice and heavy so it will not slide around on you and the extra USB ports on the side are pretty nice to have. I also like how arms on the back don't raise the keyboard really high up. I found that a lot of keyboards would do this and be bad on your wrists. I can definitely tell an increase in typing proficiency. If you are contemplating this keyboard get it, you'll love it I promise.

They are also great for gaming too...

That means "key travel"!

First I replaced my work keyboard (pretty much a plastic plank with raised letters) with this and liked it so much I've now replaced my home keyboard. The keys have excellent travel and sensitivity and it's really just a joy to use. They key presses register far earlier than when the keys bottom out which relieves stress on the fingers if you can type that way. The "silent" keyboard is probably about as loud as one of those cheap keyboards which is important in an office. I was tempted to get the clicky style but knew it might drive my neighbors (and myself) a bit crazy. It's even the first time I've used a USB hub in a keyboard and that also works well. It even has a nice solid heavy feel to it. Not original IBM PC heavy or solid but far better than anything that comes with PCs today.

The only design and performance nit pick I could have with it is that I'd be nice if the front part of the keyboard wasn't so high.

I could wish that quality items were less expensive. But anyone that looks at it and uses it will immediately recognize it's in a totally different class than any bundled or inexpensive keyboard.
