I have a Professional MX Blue that is a joy to type on. Sufficiently clicky that it sounds like work is happening. The only drawback I have had is that it doesn’t work with a new Windows 7 install, though it works in BIOS. It works with every other computer I have tried it with, and the great feel of it is the reason one buys a mechanical keyboard. I would get another if I didn’t already have a DasKeyboard Pro 3 and a CM Storm.
Hi. I have an MX Brown that I wouldn’t trade for anything I’ve ever used (and there have been quite a few since 1980 or so.) I can’t imagine why yours doesn’t work Windows 7. The only thing I suggest is to look at your device manager under Keyboards/HID Keyboard Device and see if the driver is properly installed and active. The driver version on my Win7 Pro is 6.1.7601.17514. Works like a charm here. Hope this helps. -J
DAS site sells them for $169 to $179 plus free shipping. Not sure this is a great bargain.
Bought one the last time around to use on my Mac at home. Really great keyboard, but when they came out with a Mac version of it I contacted them about getting Mac versions of the [CMD] and [OPT] keys. Wasn’t asking for anything free; totally willing to pay, but if you didn’t buy it from them directly, then prepare to be treated like a red-headed stepchild. Left a sour taste in my mouth and I’m gonna pass on getting one of these for my office computer.
A good product, but not a great company in how they treat people.
I have three of these- Cherry MX blue, brown, and red. I love them all and they work with Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 so far. I haven’t tried them with Windows 7, but don’t see any reason why they wouldn’t work with it. I also haven’t yet tried with Mac or Linux.
If you like sturdy, heavy, “clicky” keyboards, these are fantastic. I also have a Razer BlackWidow Ultimate mechanical keyboard, but I just don’t like it as much as the Das Keyboard ones, if for no other reason than that the Razer gaming mouse/keyboard software somehow borks the ability for my machines to read Yubikeys- still working on fixing that.
If you don’t already know the differences in the MX variations, see Tom’s Hardware. I can’t pick a favorite, but on any given day, I do find myself using one over another; it’s apparently dependent on my mood and whether I’m sitting or standing, I guess.
