Fastest Typist: Ultimate Typing Championship Final 2010 - YouTube

Got a DAS, not the silent - I like to let people know I'm here

I also use the PS2 connector

Well, it may not be an Ultimate, but it's a Silent, and it's freaking amazing. I swear, the first few days I had it, even while getting irritated at programming troubleshooting that I was having my friend talk me through, the entire thing wasn't nearly as frustrating as it normally would be because of all the additional typing I got to do on this keyboard. The coding and typing benefits are so much more worthwhile than the gaming benefits, but I like those, too.

So far, I haven't had to worry about major fingerprint problems, and I'm certain I won't have too many of them either. There is such a small area of glossed surface, it shouldn't be a big problem. Oh, and yeah, I'm using the PS/2 connector, too. Old school.

I would sell my computer, before I would go back to a non-mechanical keyboard.

I tried a mechanical but I like shallow keys, they don't feel as nice to press down but at the same time I am used to the pressure I need for a shallow board.
