Das Keyboard

So I got a new keyboard this week for use at work. It's a Das Keyboard II.

If you haven't seen them, check out the link. This is the Hotblack Desiato model of keyboard... all black, baby!

It has a really great feel to it. You get the crisp action of mechanical switches, while the II is a bit softer than a classic Model M keyboard. (goldenrod's post about his keyboard reminded me to post about mine.) I like the key action a lot -- I always found M's to be too stiff. I realize, it's almost verboten for a geek to dislike those keyboards, but there ya have it.

And it is good for your touch typing. I only rarely looked at my keycaps, anyway. This just enforces good behavior (while looking slick). Besides, in very little time you get used to ryoubf sikekt vt fdeej,
