I bought one of these to replace a Natural Keyboard Pro which had been my workhorse for at least 10 years but which was getting a bit tired, and very noisy (especially noticeable by my colleagues on conference calls).
I tried the Silent Red and the Brown at Keyboard Co's offices -- I was expecting to go for the Brown, which is indeed lovely to type on, but was amazed at how quiet the Silent Red is, even (if not especially) the space bar. When you're used to bottoming out, the Silent Red isn't completely silent but I'm sure with time I'll adapt and get it even quieter.
The Red switches are wonderfully smooth, and I don't find that I'm missing the tactility of the Brown.
Keycaps are a very personal thing, and to my mind the standard keycaps have a lovely almost-matt sheen to them.
Build quality is amazing, regular keyboards have nothing on this.
Many thanks to John and Bruce for fantastic service, advice and recommendations. I hope I'll be back!
