The DAS Keyboard was graciously sent to me to review over the past several weeks and I must say, it is a flashback to the old keyboards we all once used. DAS Keyboard sells 3 models of their signature super-clicky keyboards: Original Professional,...

If you type a lot you deserve a keyboard such as this one, many people don’t consider keyboards something of importance when it comes to their computer and they figure any old keyboard will do, but once you have the chance to use a true quality...

The Das Keyboard takes Professional seriously. There are no "features" of the Das Keyboard, unless you seriously rely on extra USB ports--no doubt the culmination of weeks of brainstorming sessions devoted to using up that free cubic inch. And therein...

To lay the cards on the table, I personally deem the Das Keyboard Professional keyboard to be an expensive backwards step in the wrong direction. Sure it has the nice switches that make a nice click noise like the "good ole' days", but do we have to...

At the price of $99 for the Das Keyboard Professional is a great product where it made me realize how much the quality of a keyboard matters. I really couldnt find anything to criticize about the keyboard except its price. At $99, the cost of the...

A couple of extra features help the keyboard integrate into an office environment. The cable that connects it to a computer is six feet long, which is a good length. Some people might ask why the keyboard isnt wireless, but having a cable makes the...

If you have noticed extra typos on the site the past month, there is a reason (and no, I have not developed especially fat fingers). I’ve been using the Das Keyboard Professional as my primary keyboard to give it a thorough try. It’s big,...

Typing purists, gamers, and computing old schoolers will love the Das Professional Keyboard and its satisfying mechanical switch design. Most casual users, however, will balk at the $125 price for such an otherwise spare input device. Specifications:...

You may recall earlier versions of the Das Keyboard as a wacky typing aid with blank keys. Well, the third installment of the series is on its way, and this time the focus is on comfort, not gimmicks. As with the earlier versions, if you like an IBM...

Metadot’s Das Keyboard is really nothing new; their totally blank mechanical keyboard for über-hackers has been on the market for a few years now, to largely positive reviews. Someone must have pointed out that not everyone has the entire QWERTY...
