Das Keyboard 4 Professional sing and shine German quality from start to finish in every corner. It is made from anodized aluminium construction giving it robust and solid build structure, they even went into detail by making the Cherry MX switches with gold plating that can last up to 50mill keystroke for reliability sake. It comes in either blue or brown switches only. Not fancy LEDS just ultimate German Candy.
The fonts on the keys are laser etched so they will stay there forever. They are using ABS plastic keys. The footbar that raises the keyboard also function as a ruler, 16inches in length. The Germans do optimise every part to be functional because why not. It comes with a 2 meter thick long cable which I prefer if its thinner to bend the cable easily. The total weights is 1.3kgs. Dimensions: 18 x 6.8 x .80 inches (45.72 x 17.272 x 2.032 cm). Elevated height: 1.2 inches (3.1 cm).
Features includes full size media control with a volume knob will a increment steps for precise volume controls. Media button little soft for my taste but is does the job well wished it had more tactile feel. There is also a sleep button to quickly put your PC into sleep mode, a function that is much appreciated to have. On the back you have 2 USB 3.0 Ports so you can run devices nearby rather than attaching them to your PC ports. Does support device charging and External storage like SSD / Hard Drives and Flashdrives.
It has full NKRO over USB no longer the need for PS2 adapter just hit Shift + Mute to toggle into NKRO. Just a side note, no backlight as the keyboard is meant for content and media creators that work and well lit area and the keyboard stay put on the table top. The overall finish of the Das Keyboard looks great with its anodized aluminium top panel that gives premium look and feel upon touching it. It’s the most simplest and great looking keyboard it you’re going for modern industrial office looking.
