What customers say about "Keys"
Das Keyboard 5Q Mechanical Keyboard
  • RGB lighting very well adjustable and it's possible to get alerts with lightning.
  • High quality chassis and keycap finish. Typing experience is amazing.
  • I find this style of switch perfectly comfortable to type on.
  • If you like deeper travel, heavier switches, or a stronger tactile feel, these are not for you.
  • Not worth the money I spend. While typing it hardly makes any difference since the keys register when pressed as default mechanical keyboard.
Das Keyboard 4Q Cherry MX RGB Brown
  • The processing of the keyboard is very good and has a very nice writing experience.
  • The RGB lighting is great, as I can easily see keys at night.
  • The keyboard feels fantastic to type on, no surprise given the Cherry MX Brown switches that Das has included under the hood.
  • Dedicated media controls is good as it get more comfortable to use.
  • Typing on this keyboard is even more satisfying than I expected.
