I've always liked mechanical keys. Used to have a Dell AT101W.

Now I have a TT Poseidon. It's decent.

Got that, and also the G910. Like the 910 much better. Can't say exactly why, but it's just better, to me, at least.

Ugh... I love the typing experience on my model S keyboard I just got but I seem to type a lot more accurately (and faster as a result) on my apple membrane keyboard

Will it take me some time to get used to a mechanical keyboard? It has been a very long time since I used sculpted keys. Usually I am typing away on laptop keyboards.

When I worked at Dell, I'd always go down to the mailroom where all the excess equipment was collected. I had the AT101W for a long time.

I've been using a first gen Filco Majestouch Otaku Edition with Cherry MX Blues for years and I would not trade it for the world...well maybe the wireless version of the keyboard but still. It's a wonderful keyboard.

Is it normal to be slower on a mechanical keyboard in the beginning?

I have owned a ton, but Das has been my favorite.

Currently I own three:

I own a model S with brown switches.

A Das Keyboard Professional with reds.

And then a script less Das Ultimate 4 with blues. The new blues are SUPER stiff and that keyboard is very clicky. Great for gaming but not so much for typing.


I use the Professional the most and use it at home, the S was my work keyboard but it has been mutilated by two years of use. I'm surprised that the key caps didn't hold up a little better. I don't know if there's a way to fix it but to my knowledge there is no substitute key cap sets for the Das lineup currently. I would definitely change all the key caps to continue using the S, such an awesome feel.

Reds have been my favorite overall, and the Professional has a nice clack to it. The Blues on the ultimate are just too much for me, I've found my niche.

Yes Cherry MX Blue.
I love to type on it but I'm not as accurate on it, and therefore slower.

Using a Razer Blackwidow Tournament Stealth.

I love it for games but every day use, it is very noisy. Also, I miss the split keys of my microsoft natural keyboard for typing - its much more comfortable.
