I took this bitch apart to spray paint the cover candy apple red and it came out looking GORGEOUS cept I snapped the fuggin' PCB while trying to put the chip wired for the volume knob back in place as for some reason it was IMPOSSIBUR to put back together. Moral of the story kids: Das one keyboard daddy FUKDUP and tossed on his pile of random pc parts. Ahhh, pcmasterraceworld problems.
Can anyone comment on how this stacks up against the Code Keyboard? I currently have it with the MX Clears but I'm not too sure just yet if I want to jump the gun on this for the office.

FYI. I don't think Das makes an Ultimate with Clears... I think the other variant uses Blues.
good keyboard, protip the rubber bits that hold the ruler in place on the bottom could use a dab of super glue to hold them in place.

Hmm, mine have never had a problem with mine
I own this keyboard and it's quite well constructed. Big selling point is that it has two additional USB ports perfect for phone charging or plugging in a controller.
The ONLY downside to this keyboard is the key caps. They get shiny very fast on the ultimate and the legends wear of quickly on the professional. They need to release key sets that are PBT blank and PBT doubleshot.

I bought these PBT caps for my Ultimate: http://www.geekkeys.com/geekkeys-black-blank-thick-pbt-full-keyset/ They are Cherry profile so not an exact match, but I love them. The Ultimate already felt solid, but with these thick caps it feels even more substantial.
The only negative was that several of the keys had some noticeable white residue (I was pissed). However wiping them down with a cloth dampened with a VERY small amount of silicone spray (think armorall conditioner) and they look terrific now. Deep black.
I hope this Opens up soon :D
Please do a drop! I really want to buy one :(
We need another drop on this one!
please open up another drop on this item!
Can we expect another drop of this?
They don't make the Das Keyboard Ultimate in Cherry MX Red?
What are the chances that this keyboard will be available, but with the blue switches?

They started using MX switches again? I thought they Greetech.
Nekonomicon
I believe they use Greetech on some of their keyboards.
They were able to get us some Cherry MX Browns.
Hey guys, we've spoken to the vendor and decided to push this drop out 1 more day so we can try and hit that initial tipping point.
I've adjusted the drop end date accordingly.
Can I replace the blank key caps with a printed set? Are these a standard cherry mx keycap?
blayne
The spacing is standard so you can get any standard ANSI Cherry MX compatible keycap set and all the keys will fit.
I've got two of these, one with Blues (for work) and one with Browns (for home). Both are phenomenal, and I'd HIGHLY recommend it if you're in the US (this is the best discount you're going to find, even if it's only $20 after shipping). Seriously, zero downsides to the board. The volume know and media controls are TIGHT, the key travel is fantastic, the aluminum board is crazy sturdy (pretty heavy too), and there's even a ruler underneath. ;)
I have a Das with browns.. I think they sound better than any of my other boards. However, I prefer small boards.
I got this for ~$140 with the student discount. Fans tastic keyboard. I won't comment on the price
In U.K and this is Poor. ESP when the Mac version is cheaper in the U.K. Just rude and insulting to MD community.
Are the keys marked or is it plain black as on the photographs ?... I get a doubt.

The "Ultimate" version of the Das Keyboard 4 comes with blank keycaps. If you want the same keyboard but with the printed legends you should look for the "Professional" version.
Are the keys marked or is it plain black as on the photographs ?... I get a doubt.

Plain black! I personally think they look sleek! It is mainly for people who dont need to look at their keyboard though
Second drop for Das Keyboard and still no ISO version ☹.

I have 34.51$ shipping to austria. Lowest price WOULD be 10€ cheaper total.
I did buy it from them eventually.
