In this video I take a series of typing tests with commentary to show everyone how fast I can type on my dasKeyboard S Professional keyboard. I also give some tips and tricks on when to get your best performance and how exhaustion can affect your typing speeds.

German-engineered mechanical key switches:
Das Keyboard compares to the legendary IBM Model M. Its best-in-class mechanical gold-plated key switches provide a tactile click that makes typing a pure joy.

N-key rollover:
Model S allows full n-key rollover with an included PS2 adapter, and 6 keys with USB. Great for fast typists and gamers alike.

USB 2.0 hub:
The high-speed USB hub allows you to sync and charge your iPhone, iPod or any USB compatible devices.

Media Controls:
Das Keyboard sports media controls for quick access to volume, mute, stop, pause, next and previous track controls. Media controls are not available using a PS2 connection.

Extra-long USB cable:
Das Keyboard sports a 2-meter (6.6ft) cable that goes through your desk grommet to keep your workspace neat and tidy.

Help reduce the environmental impact of your computer and save energy by putting your computer to sleep simply by using this handy sleep function even for your shortest breaks.
