I was very excited about this keyboard when it was announced. To my demise I did not notice that the 4c line up does NOT use brown cherry MX switches. I really did not expect knock of brown switches, not at this price point. Anyhow the switches Das is using are Greetech switches. They are a little stiffer than brown cherry MX switches. They also seem to make squeaky noises when pressed.....
Pros - Compact design - Great look and layout, nice anodized aluminum top plate - Media keys
Cons - Switches, they don't feel the same as brown cherry mx switches - Price - It does not work with my KVM. I have Das professional 4 with the full layout and it is working with this KVM switch
For the price I think customers are getting ripped of. Whoever is paying this kind of money for a mech keyboard is expecting to get top quality/experience and not knock of Chinese mech switches.
Overall an underwhelming experience. I definitively expected much more of this well-respected brand. A proper manufacturer's disclosure about the mechanical switches used in this keyboard would help (on their website and here) so people know what they are getting.
CONS: - wider than a typical TKL by 1.5 inches - manufacturer's omission to disclose that this keyboard is not using genuine Cherry MX switches, but rather a cheaper clone switch from Greetech - "scratchier" than genuine Cherry MX browns. IMO, a tad scratchier than Kailh switches too - non-detachable USB cord - ABS keycaps (not backlit either) - expensive for what it is
Anyways, not very impressive TKL for the price.
I first purchased the Corsair K70 (MX Brown), but it was not nearly as comfortable to type on, presumably because of the raised keys. This Das is what I expect a high quality keyboard to feel like. No, the switches are not Cherry MX but to me, it is very hard, if not impossible to tell the difference. If you bottom out, the keys do have a slight springy ringing sound to them that sounds kind of cheap and might annoy some people (you have to listen very closely). I did not notice this on the Corsair, but I imagine this could be easily remedied by adding rubber O-rings to the keys. Overall, this is very quiet compared to the Corsair out of the box.
Love the fact that this doesn't have a num pad. For programming, this makes it much easier, quicker and more comfortable to move between keyboard and mouse. One thing this keyboard seems to be missing are dedicated volume and media control keys that are pretty standard on most keyboards these days. You have to do fn combos to...
