    Das Keyboard has a kickstarter for the Das Keyboard 5Q. It looks very interesting especially as it is the first back-light Das Keyboard. but the switches are Omron the manufacture of Romer -G for Logitech. The switches look very similar as well.


    What are your thoughts?

    I have a different Das keyboard, and I really like it. They are a bit noisy, if that matters to anyone.

    Das Keyboard is ignoring questions regarding the similarities to the Logitech keys. So it is safe to assume they are the same. I hope not as I hear the Logitech keys feel like membrane keys.


    Das Keyboard has responded with:

    The Romer-G and Gamma Zulu have different characteristics:
    - total travel: 3mm for Romer-G, v.s. 3.5mm for Gamma Zulu
    - lifetime 70M for Romer-G, 100M for Gamma Zulu
