Daskeyboard sent me a mechanical keyboard to review. All opinions are my own.
As someone who does a lot of typing, I was excited when Das Keyboard reached out to send me their 6 Pro mechanical keyboard to test. I was eager to see if it could improve my typing experience!
Right away, I noticed the satisfying click and tactile feel of the German-engineered Cherry MX switches. I chose the Brown switches which offer a nice soft tactile feedback without being too loud. The audible click is pleasant without being disruptive.
This keyboard does run a bit longer than my old one, so it was a tight squeeze on my compact desk and keyboard tray. I made it work, but be aware the 17.5 inch length may not fit all workspaces. The generously sized keys are laid out in a very natural way though. I adjusted to the new layout in no time.
I love how the laser-etched keycaps allow the bright white backlighting to shine through clearly. And the backlighting helps me spot special function keys when I’m working in low light. The oversized volume dial in the top right is super convenient for media controls.
The aluminum enclosure gives the 6 Pro a very sturdy, premium feel that I think will stand up to daily use for years to come. And I appreciate the energy-saving sleep key that instantly puts my computer to sleep when pressed.
While it required some desk reconfiguring, the exceptional typing experience of the mechanical Cherry MX switches is worth it to me. I love the satisfying click and response of the keys. Das Keyboard makes high-quality mechanical keyboards with that signature clicky feel, if that’s something you seek in a keyboard I’d certainly recommend one of theirs!
Daskeyboard offers a lot of keyboard styles so you could get one that is the right size for you, and that offers the type of switch that you prefer most. They also offer keyboards for various computer types.
