Das Keyboard Model S Professional review

£100

Manufacturer: ABC Digital Cameras

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

The Das Keyboard Model S Professional is a USB keyboard with Cherry MX Blue switches.

The Das Keyboard Model S Professional already holds a special place in the hearts of many gamers and typists, and for good reason. It's a good, solid keyboard.

We prefer the light, clicky feeling of the Cherry MX Blue switches, and they feel very good in the Das Keyboard Model S Professional.

The layout feels comfortably familiar, the keys are responsive, the angle is just right, and at around £100, it falls in the middle of the price range for mechanical keyboards.

More keyboard reviews

The Das Keyboard Model S Professional has a few minor features worth mentioning, including two USB ports, a 2m USB cable, and "laser-etched" keys. They are supposed to prevent fading, though we weren't able to test this.

We found the Das Keyboard Model S Professional to be the most attractive to our eye of the keyboards we tested. The glossy black surface makes it stand out from the matt black crowd, but not garish like the Adesso MKB-135B, which is also glossy black.

The red and white logo and blue LEDs add a few splashes of colour to complete the package.
