Das Keyboard Division Zero X40 Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

After locating the downloads section at Division Zero, we downloaded, unpacked the files, installed the driver, and were prompted to restart the PC, this is what we found. There is a home tab that starts things off, but this is just to signify the driver and firmware at the bottom, as there are no changes that can be made while on this tab.





Moving to the Advanced tab, things start to get interesting. We find that we are offered profiles that can only be set and switched via software. At the bottom, we can address the polling rate on the left, or at the right, reset any profile to default settings.




This is also where you can remap the keyboard. The F-keys, Function keys, and the arrows are out of play, but any other key on the board can be reset. Key reassignments happen to the left, but under the mouse button setting, you can select any of the mouse buttons to be used with the click of a key instead.




Jumping over to the Macro Settings tab, we find that you start off with other options first, via a drop-down menu. You can assign a Macro, but we have yet to record any, so we move on to the multimedia, IE, mouse, standard, shortcut, and disable options that can be applied to most of the keys too.




Here we finally got around to the Macro Manager. The left column is to name the Macro while the middle column offers a step-by-step denotation of the key and mouse presses. The right column then offers the ability to start the recording process, the ability to read time delays or to ignore them, and even a spot at the bottom to set the amount of times the Macro repeats with each press of the key.


There is also a tab marked support/updates, but this does not change anything in the software. It opens the browser and delivers you to the Das Keyboard mojo help desk page. Here you can look through their knowledge base and see if there is a solution to your issues. If you want to look for software or firmware updates, you need to venture to the Division Zero site yourself.
