Das Keyboard Division Zero X40 Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation




The front of the box is done with a red backdrop with red text on top of it. At the top left corner, we find the Division Zero naming of the product line, and a large X40 in the middle. Under that, it states this is a Pro Gaming Mechanical Keyboard.





This longer side panel offers all of the same information we found on the front, just, this time, it is stretched out to the side to fit the much thinner panel. What we do find different, though, is that there is a large sticker denoting the use of yellow Alpha-Zulu gaming switches, which offer a tactile experience.




This shorter thin side panel has three things on it. There is the bar codes to the left including the serial number, the X40 name in the middle, and another notation to the switches used inside.




The length of this side is mostly taken up with feature lists in just about everything but English, and there is also the web address offered. The right end of this panel though has this. We see it is indeed made by Das Keyboard and works via a USB port. We see that it is Windows and Linux ready, but no mention of the Chrome or iOS support.




Here, on the last of the side panels, we find more of the same we have seen everywhere else on this packaging. This time, they just include the switch type sticker and the product naming.




When you flip the box over to see the back panel, we get our first glance of the keyboard contained within. There are nine numbers inside of red circles placed around the keyboard, and below it are descriptions of the features that are being pointed out in the image above.




We have also been sent the Defamer in silver, and the Stryker in red, but this is only two of the four options. Offered along with these two, there is a Stryker top plate that comes in olive green, and a Defamer painted mustard yellow. This is on top of the silver Stryker panel that ships on the X40.




The keyboard is found surrounded by foam and wrapped in a plastic liner to protect it, but sitting on top of it is what we see here. There is an insert that addresses the installation, some of the features, where to go for warranty support for the first year of ownership, and even tells us how to win free stuff. They also offer a logo sticker for Division Zero and include a key puller as well.
