Review of Das Keyboard Model S Professional
http://www.testfreaks.com/blog/revie...-professional/

Quote:
The main difference though is that the Model S version now includes multi-media keys for quick access to volume, ply, pause, stop, forward and back. These new keys are accessed by using the FN or function key like you would on your laptop and they truly do add functionality and usability to the Das Keyboard. So continue on to learn more…

Das Keyboard Model S Professional

Das Keyboard Model S Professional sports high end mechanical key switches and 2-port USB 2.0 hub. The newly redesigned electronics provides full N-key rollover and media functions.

Specifications:
Das Keyboard has been designed for people who spend many hours a day working on a computer and for whom typing productivity and comfort matters.

Both Das Keyboard Professional and Ultimate models are identical except that the Ultimate is a blank keyboard (there are no inscriptions on the keys).

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 and audio click that makes typing a pure joy.

The way they say it kind of sounds like comparing a BMW M3 to a Hummer H1 (you can guess which represents the IBM ). Sure they're both great, but they're also so different from each other that putting them together in a sentence like this just sounds funny.

with the Das Model S Media Keys all you are paying for are the legends on the F1-9 keys because they turned the left Windows Key into a Function Key. AutoHotKey can do the same thing. silly.

looks like the Model S has a new finish on it no more black sheen like the previous series.

I like this part

that's about all that is german about it

Deck Legend 105/82 and steelseries 7g need more owners. pretty soon I am going to have to create some Haiti adoption ads.

no they don't. the legends are physically engraved like this.

I don't think this is correct.

I'm think Deck use double shot keycaps on any backlit keyboards (all of their range?).

Correct me if I'm wrong.

actually it's both.

Quote:
They double-shot-mold a piece of translucent plastic into a piece of black plastic, then they dye-sublimate the "negative" of the legend on each cap, so the only visible part of the translucent plastic left is the legend itself.

I hope that made some kind of sense. I'm not sure why the don't just double-shot the character into the key, but it might cost more to create molds with their funky font than doing this, seemingly, more complex process.

2. Keycaps are made of Polyester (PBT) except the spacebar which is ABS.

Will the letters on the keycaps wear off eventually?

NEVER! Characters can't chip off the key caps or wear down because we use a sublimated negative printing process which drives the ink into the plastic keycaps at 525°F. This means permanent printing from the inside out, not just on the top, and gives the letters a permanent place inside the plastic.

Important Features

* Low cost
* Low profile, full size keys
* Tactile full travel key switches for superior feel vs. rubber keys
* LED backlighting good for life of product (200,000 hr LED's = 22yrs. continuous on)
* Standard red backlighting (Other colors available, please contact factory)
* Black keycaps with backlit legends - unique 2 shot and sublimated process (patent pending)
* Water resistant splash guard (Mil Std 810 compliant² from top side)
* FCC, UL, CE, and RoHS compliant²
* Large backlit characters for ease of viewing

Mechanical Specifications

* 82 key compact design
* Overall dimensions: 12 in x 6 in x 1.5 in (305 mm x 152 mm x 38 mm)
* Weight: 2 lbs (907 g)
* 50 million cycle key switches with gold contacts
* Temperature:
Storage: -55°C to +85°C
Operating: -40°C to +70°C
* Plastic injection molded top with metal bottom for ease of customizing mounting techniques

Electrical Specifications

* +5VDC @ 220mA typical with red backlighting. Current consumption depends on LED color. Consult factory for details.
* Interface: USB and PS2 (Other interfaces possible, please consult factory)
* Radiated immunity: 20 volts/meter
* Dimming has eight levels of intensity controlled by "Fn" + "Ø" - "7" keys or "Fn" Up/Down cursor keys
so final answer. they are double-shot molded, made out of polyester which is a soft, high impact plastic and the printing is sublimated dye.

if it wasn't for the font these would probably be the best keycaps you can get.
