It's actually not a short. The issue is the solder joints breaking, which prevents a solid connection. (A short circuit is when you create an unintended, low-resistance connection between a voltage source and ground).If you read the reviews on that keyboard you'll see a lot of people having issue with the micro usb and it shorting.
If you'd be willing to pay the WASD or Das price, then you could easily afford a different cable to prevent the issue from happening.
By the way, is there a reason you need Black switches and not Red ones? I kow the Reds are lighter, but they are still linear (compared to the tactile response of Blue and Brown switches).
EDIT: PS, this is where I first heard of the Rosewill issue. It's a good read to understand exactly what the issue is. The OP will still recommend the Rosewill models, just FYI.
