I was thinking of buying a mechanical keyboard. I really like the das keyboard. But at 130 it's a bit expensive and a little out of budget. Another Keyboard I was looking at was a coolermaster quickfire rapid. Is the das keyboard worth an extra 45 bucks? I wouldn't be able to get a das as soon as I would the coolermaster. I am also open to other mechanical keyboard suggestions. I like the Cherry Mx blue switches.

I personally use the Black Widow Ultimate. It's not half-bad; especially if you get the non-backlit version ($80). Quite a nice value for a MX-Blue switch keyboard :) 

I'm not sure if the 2013 models still use Blues or not but I know they got rid of the Glossy finish.

I'm not interested in razer's. I've heard that they are cheap built. And I know three people that had one and they all crapped out after a year.

I've had mine for over a year and a half and I'm still experiencing zero problems :)

I highly dislike Razor's build.

If you want a cheaper keyboard that's as well built as Das (it actually has the same reference manufacturer as the legendary Ducky keyboards), go with a Leopold.

I have a completely blank full Leopold with MX Browns, and I LOVE it to death.

Still not interested in razors. And what about other switches. I've never used anything but blues how are the brown blacks and reds. I type as much as I game. I like the sound of the blues but I heard that the browns were smoother and crisper.

I personally dislike Browns...The actual tactile feel of the switch is very light so they remind me (somewhat) of Reds, which I personally dislike.

I really want to stick to wither the coolermaster or the das. Any price in between is not ideal. Considering I could basicallly buy one now. If I have to wait to get one I'll just shell out a few extra bucks concidering I'll have to wait anyways and buy a das.
