I bought Touchstream LP, parceled to me from other side of the Europe. Lol. Das Keyboard is nothing compared to that. Go buy couple while at it. 🙂

When they sent me a review sample of the MkI version, and I wrote a pretty harsh review on Slashdot, I was a) pleased that the company --on paper -- seemed to have addressed some of the problems with the 1st one and b) surprised that they sent me another review sample of MkII.

It definitely feels better than the first go-'round, but is hardly (favorably) comparable to a Model M, or even to the Thrift Store Special (actually, the brand is NMB) that I'm tappy-clicking on right now. The key switches may be "mechanical" on the Das Keyboard, and I have no complaints about their durability, but they're no IBM / Keytronics Northgate. For a pretty obscure but awesome keyboard, find a Northgate OmniMac Ultra, then use an ADB-to-USB dongle-adapter ...

🙂

Their speed-typing claims may be hype or real; I can't say that my typing increased in speed by using it, but it does feel neat to use it for a while, glance at your hands on the black surface, and boggle momentarily. I'm a poor enough typist, though, that I really like the peripheral vision of the letters, even if I glance at them only rarely.

Cheers,

timothy

I've been tempted for some time to get the same thing but I'm hesitant about the price. Keep us informed

In fact, I am typing this very post on this keyboard. I been using it daily for 3 months now. The best thing about it is the sound of the key when you press them. However, I find this keyboard quite painful to use when you are trying to work on something serious. Both for not having printed keys and the pain you get after typing for long hours. And yeah, it's quite expensive.
