Default Das Keyboard

My friend showed me Das Keyboard in a PC Gamer and it looked like a pretty rad keybaord. I was wondering if anyone here had it and how it feels. I'm probably gonna fork over the money just because it's the sickest keyboard i've ever seen. It makes all other keyboards seem kinda dull:

I thought they had gold contacts for the keys or something. I wouldn't mind having one if the keys are nice.

Its kinda Crazy, You would learn how to type very fast on that thing, because you woulnt need to look at the keys, I have a Siatek Eclipse and I like it alot, i can see all my keys in the dark.

Unmarked A-Z keys for me are simply better. I'm too poor to afford good keyboards, so I just swap the keys around on cheap logitech keyboards.

And they do say their modelled on the IBM Model M keyboards which were simply an amazing feel.

I'm still doing fine with a normal keyboard that probably costs $5. I don't know why people spend so much money on stuff like keyboards and mouses..

I type plenty fast with a normal keyboard and I hardly ever look at the keys anyway.
