Das Keyboard Model S Professional

The first unimpeded view of the S Pro shows you what I spent two pages trying to explain. Along with the textured and contoured 104-key layout there is just an expanse of shiny black plastic surrounding it for a bit of an elegant and professional appeal to the design.

The 74 keys shown here include all the keys you desire in a US layout including two Windows keys and a large enter key.

On the right are the other 30 keys of this layout. This way you aren't on a 74-key layout with function lock dual purposes to the keys. Das Keyboard wanted all the basics covered with no need for any inconveniences that may slow down the use of this keyboard.

The front frame sits 21mm off the table with just about an additional 7mm until you are on the spacebar. The split on the two pieces is where the finish changes as well. While the top is all nice and shiny, the bottom is a more dulled, textured plastic finish.

The side of the keyboard has a curve to it that I don't see in many keyboards. Usually it is an ever increasing angle as you move back on the keyboard, but not with this Das Keyboard. You can also get a good idea of the contour of the key caps to caress your fingers during use.

At the rear of the keyboard, it is again a mix of the shiny black and the textured black pieces, but this time there is a two meter USB 2.0 cable emanating from this side. The bump at the far end is to add room for the LED notifications and works as a great location to place the company name.

The right side of the keyboard is being shown with the feet underneath extended to show how the curve to this keyboard looks with the back raised. As you can see now it is an optical illusion of sorts, the keys continue to rise to the back but the keyboards frame elegantly curves away from them.
