Packaging, Accessories and Documentation

Considering the name of this product is the Das Keyboard 4 Professional, it is no surprise that the packaging is simply done, without a mess of features and random garbage mucking it up. Remember this is for typists and professionals, and is not intended to give gamers what they are after.

On the smaller end of the package we find a blue panel with just the name of the product inside, along with a thin box showing this contains a blue switch version, and that these switches are "clicky," and will be heard.

Even on the longer side they keep things simple; only the colors have changed as we are once again presented the naming, and switch type.

On this end, the naming has been cut short so that the bar codes could be applied. This is also one of the two places that the model number and serial number are presented.

The back is where they chose to offer everything up to their potential customers. Down the left, backed in blue, is a list of features, along with the system requirements. To the right there is a side view of the keyboard, and below it there are eight feature lists presented in multiple languages to cover their markets.

Inside the box you will find the 4 Professional wrapped in a foam sleeve to protect the keyboard from any vibrations that might wear any of the surfaces. Just behind the keyboard is where the USB cable is stored, and on top of that is the red footbar.

Using a bit of "l337" speak, Das hides this message, "7h3 f007b4r rul35," or "the footbar rules." This is a double entendre; in one way a magnetically attached system for the feet is really cool, but the footbar does actually rule as well, meaning it can measure with rulers on both of its edges.

All that comes in the box other than the keyboard and the footbar is this single sheet of paper. This sheet explains the installation, how to turn on NKRO, as well as support information, social media information, and a "thank you" from Das Keyboard.
