Come to think of it, it's a shame behringer did not consider a version with a keyboard, using the DM6/VC340 chassis. That'd be an instant buy for me.
True, but it looks like they've standardized the chassis for their lower-tier desktop modules in their quasi-Eurorack design (Model D, Neutron, Pro-One); hence lowering the selling price to surprising new lows. At least re:synthesis offers standard 19" rack-ears for these, which I bought for my Neutron (I refuse to buy a module that isn't rack-mountable).

As for the Behringer DeepMind12, I have no complaints about my rackmount 12D, and many accolades. It's the best $449 I've ever spent on a synth.

At the risk of going off-topic, I see how popular modules and racks are (and I have space left in one of my boxes for a Behringer offering) but personally, I am more inclined to buy synths with keyboards as that's how I have my rig setup and like to have dedicated keys to each synth. It means an upper limit to synths (not trying to be Geoff Downes ), but that's how I feel most comfortable.

Yah, I know what you mean. I deliberately bought the keyboard versions of my DSI synths since they just seemed so "right" that way. Though, I also have a bunch of rackmount modules just sitting somewhere with no controller attached (I hate that). For me it's either keyboarded synths or 19" rack-mountable synths. Nothing in-between. I can't believe how many keyboards I've fit into a relatively small room!

If he likes Moog get him a Moog, not a Behringer knock off! Slap in the face to true Moog lovers. Sub phatty hands down!!!

I’ve had mine since 2013 and I am usually the type to sell synths off and get bored with them. I will be keeping mine until the day I die.

If you buy him a Moog you’ll be happily married with children in no time.

Absolute nonsense.
