Das Keyboard Model S Professional Silent


IBM bundled its Model M keyboard with the original IBM computers of the 1980s and quickly rose to cult status among purists who prefer its buckling spring action and clacky tactile response to the low-profile, scissor-switch keyboards that have become...

Mechanical key switches provide tactile feel and satisfying clack; N-key rollover allows for multiple key presses; built-in USB hub; sturdy build.

Expensive; lacks extra features.

The Das Keyboard Model S Professional Silent is aesthetically minimal and designed for keyboard purists who miss the noisy days of the first IBM Model M. Its $135 price tag will deter casual users who can find a cheaper input device with extra features...

Das Keyboard Model S Professional


It's very pricey for a plain keyboard, but the latest Das Keyboard delivers a clicky, satisfying key feel like no other.

Superb tactile feedback; rugged construction; n-key rollover support

Expensive; too noisy for office use

We didn’t get an opportunity to try the Silent version, though we have to imagine that it removes half the fun, much like diet cola or carob chocolate. But we can say that the latest Das Keyboard—the noisy one—won’t disappoint those addicted to a...

"Absolutely the best"


Believe all the hype that you have read. These keyboards are amazing. Great feedback. It is NOT as loud as you might think. Definitely louder than the non-mechanical keyboards but just not as loud as some have said.

Great feel and touch.

None....yet. Am waiting to see if key lettering wears off.

It\'s really nice because it has 2 2.0 USB ports in it which makes it easily accessible to add your thumb drive or anything like that. Very nice! I love this keyboard. Best keyboard I\'ve ever bought.

Product, store, and service all great


Love this keyboard. I\'ve been a typist for many years and love the responsive feel of this keyboard. The "silent" model still has enough of the clicking sound to satisfy me but not so much that it bothers other family members. Much superior to those...

Great keyboard!!!


Buying a keyboard without actually trying it is somewhat scary. I looked at their website and liked what I read, and figured I\'d give it a try. What a keyboard!!! I absolutely love it-with two things really standing out: 1) it is...

No buyer remorse.


I use the keyboard mainly for competitive gaming. I feel much more comfortable for extended periods of time while using this keyboard. I also enjoy the sound the switches make as I press each key. Regardless, I am 100% satisfied with my buy and hold no...
