I've been using it for about 4 days now and I'm liking it so far.
Here's a few observations:

It takes two USB slots to use (or 1 if you use USB + PS/2) but since it has 2 USB slots built into the side, you don't actually 'lose' any USB ports.

From time to time when I a double tap a key really fast when typing it doesn't register because unlike my previous membrane keyboard, you have to raise your finger up a bit so that the key resets and when you tap the second time it will actually hit the actuation point.

The left Windows button gets stuck if you push it forward a bit when you press it, but it's not a big deal for me since I rarely use it and there is another Windows button on the right which doesn't seem to have this problem.

The glass on the keyboard looks very nice. I mean it's really pretty. I can see my face on it pretty well. The bright blue lights that indicate Num Lock, Caps and Scroll Lock look very good too.

I've tested that every single key on the keyboard works.

The feedback that you get when pressing keys is good. I can't really describe it too well, but I guess you feel like a very very slight pop on your fingertip after you press a key, kinda like popping a very small bubble wrap.

It's moderately loud compared to my membrane keyboard, however it personally doesn't bother me at all because it makes me feel (and seem) like I'm doing a lot of work when I'm typing and you hear really loud sounds and fast typing which is why this review is a lot longer than it should be.

Overall:
I like it much more than my previous membrane keyboard.
It looks nice, feels great, performs well.

I have been using one of the "chicklet" keyboards that came with my IMac last year - and frankly I simply don't like them. Given that I'm experienced touch typist, I did some research on keyboards to find a better one - and came to the conclusion that the DAS Keyboard was the best one for me. It contains metal key switch mechanisms which provide a positive "click" feedback when typing (which reminds of my old IBM Selectric typewriter - yes I am that old) and two USB ports on the right side of the keyboard.

The only "relatively minor" negative comments I would make are:

1. There are no keyboard volume controls - like those on the Mac keyboard - however, I use the volume control on the menu line which works OK for me.

2. Having used Macs since 1983, I know by touch where the command and option keys are so that is also not a problem given the DAS Keyboard has different symbols for these two functions.

3. Another comment concerns the highly polished base into which the keys are imbedded. I find it attracts dust easily - so I put a cover over over the keyboard when it is not in use because it is too easy to scratch the polished surface when cleaning it - even with the little slip of cleaning fabric DAS included with the keyboard. As a result of this comment, I recommend the manufacturer make the keyboard base in a finish similar to that of the keys.

FYI, it took very little time to become proficient with the DAS Keyboard and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who is an experienced typist.

I have rated it 4 stars (it could have easily been 5 except for the minor problems noted above) and that's a high rating for a picky evaluator.

Mechanical keyboards are becoming all the rage, and they are now available at many price points with many features. Das Keyboard is a pioneer in this field, and their experience shows. This is a solid and solidly-built keyboard the emphasizes all the good properties of mechanical keyswitches. I like the convenience of twin USB ports, although to get the full voltage required to charge an iPad you need to use two USB ports on your computer. Not a problem for a desktop, but it could be inconvenient for a laptop user. I like it, I use it every day, and the only thing that would drag me away from it is the Mac-specific version (this one is for Windows - works just fine on a Mac, but the keycaps don't match Mac conventions). I like it!
