Anyone who plays games or spends a lot of typing on a computer each day can tell you that not all keyboards are created equal. I've been typing on a super thin Logitech keyboard for years and find that I can't type nearly as fast on anything else. A lot of gamers and typists out there like mechanical keys.




If you are one of those sorts of people, you will be interested in the new offering from Das Keyboard. You might recognize the Das Keyboard name, the company has been making keyboards for years now. In fact, we reviewed one back in 2012.




The latest offering is called the Das Keyboard 4 Mechanical Keyboard and it has mechanical keys as you expect. You can get the keyboard in a version with names printed on all of the keys. If you are a touch typist, sure of the location of everything you can get it blank as well.


Das Keyboard claims best in class typing and it uses German engineering gold plated mechanical switches. The keyboard has an integrated USB 3.0 hub and N-key rollover over USB for faster gaming and no need for a PS2 adapter. This version also has controls for multimedia and a magnetic removable footbar. The keyboard will sell for $169 with shipping at the end of April.
