Earlier I was talking about getting a mechanical keyboard.

Must be full size. Must be backlit. Must be weighted. Must use replaceable keycaps (pref standard ones). Must have software for the backlighting or other features that doesn't absolutely lose. Must use something like Cherry MX Browns in terms of noise and behavior.

There are no stores within an hour of me where I can try mechanical keyboards with standard switches.

I've heard some negative things about the Das 5QS keyboard but nothing that overshadows the positive.

I'm willing to spend the money for it, and I can return it if it is awful.

Here's to hoping, because if this works out, it is the absolute pinnacle of keyboards.

This one is designed more for typers, not gamers.

Plus it's got a cool thing where you can sync the lights in your keyboard's individual keys with things like new mail messages, CPU usage, etc.

Do you feel you fully understand the vision and purpose of the software project you're working on?
Sure you can be told the "what", but do you have the "why"?
