You’re sold on the tactile awesomeness of the das keyboard, but need it a bit more on the quiet side? Maybe you’ve got super-noise-sensitive coworkers, or you spend a lot of time on the phone while you type. Perhaps you just want to keep this little beauty to yourself. Whatever the reason, we’ve got you covered. The “silent” model, which sounds much like a regular keyboard, gives you a superior keystroke without all the (albeit cool) racket.

Das Keyboard Model S Professional Silent sports high-end, mechanical key switches that click less than its cousin, the Model S Professional. This quieter model is ideal for people working in an open environment or for workers who need to type while talking on the phone. The Model S Silent keeps its outstanding tactile feel. The other features are identical to the Model S Professional, including a two-port USB 2.0 hub and newly redesigned electronics that provide full n-key rollover.

  • newegg 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.
  • newegg USB 2.0 hub The high-speed USB hub allows you to sync and charge your iPhone, iPod or any USB compatible devices.
  • newegg 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.
  • newegg N-key rollover Model S allows full n-key rollover with a PS2 adapter, and 6 keys with USB. Great for fast typists and gamers alike.

5 out of 5 eggsReal, Pro Equpiment

Pros: All the wonderful blessings of a mechanical keyboard without the sound. Mind you, it's mechanical, so it's loud-ish no matter what, but I enjoy non-clicky keys more and it's good on that.

The curvature of the key stack (higher rows higher off desk) makes lazy typing easier, my wrists say yay to that.

The two USB ports are rock solid, unlike other keyboards I've had where you could feel them bow as you plugged something in, which is nice.

The keyboard is nice and heavy, and I love that. I put it somewhere precarious on my desk due to a troubling amount of books and papers about the desk's surface, and it pretty much will sit there through an earthquake and doesn't mind more than a slight budge if I smack it accidentally moving things about. I don't know about survivability because I've not yet dropped a book right on it, but it rinses out if you disassmble it and soak it in deionized or distilled H20 great! I have tested that! Love the keyboard that's me-proof.

Cons: The warranty is voided by disassembly, which means if you end up pulling it open to modify or clean it it'll mean you're on your own for later failure attributable to manufacture. Additionally, the frame case of the keyboard has a snap-together plastic, meaning a lot of careful wiggling is needed to not break those clips as it comes apart and disassembly is obnoxious.

I understand if warranty doesn't apply if a product is opened, I completely do. But making it tough to open is a downer for anyone who mods their own stuff or has some crazy project in mind.

Also, why are the USB on keyboards always right where my mouse would be? I guess it may be a six-of-one problem, but if the USBs are right where my mouse is I can't easily plug anything in there. It's a silly thing but it need be said.

Despite what I said, the USB ports are inset so some USB heads may not 'reach' in enough for contact, though I haven't had that issue with my mice and flash drives.

Other Thoughts: Doubles as self defense weapon. No seriously. I wouldn't have named it the "Silent," but it doesn't offend me.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard for Typing

Pros: This is a professional keyboard for those who do a lot of typing. Keystrokes are light and positive. Stylish design. High quality design and construction. Characters on keys are not decals. Characters are etched into the keyface and filled with white plastic. Body and keys are made of heavy ABS plastic castings with quality gold plated key switches and should last many, many years provide its taken care of and USB continues to be available. No special drivers required. Just plug and play on USB.

Cons: Expensive, though prices today are about 20% less than what I paid for it a year ago.

The pitch of the keys is a little too narrow for my large hands. Petite and average build women should not have any problems with this keyboard. If the key pitch was increased an additional 1mm, this keyboard would be a little more comfortable for the larger hands of men.

Other Thoughts: I am satisfied with this keyboard. It took some time getting use to the narrower key pitch, but I love the keystokes and sounds when I use this board. I definitely do type much better than the Microsoft Multimedia keyboard that was replaced.

4 out of 5 eggslove this keyboard

Pros: *Cherry MX Brown keys that have the responsiveness and sound I like
*Solid keyboard construction
*The thickness and tilt (when I raise the legs in the back) force me to clean up my bad typing habits -- the lazy drooped wrist I had adopted while using thinner Apple keyboards will not work with this one, unless I don't mind carpal tunnel pain.

Cons: *I am a Mac user, and this is a Windows keyboard layout. (Certain key functions that are standard on a Mac like Eject and the audio controls are missing, and Windows, which is our Command, is in the 'wrong' place.)

Other Thoughts: Das Keyboard (the manufacturer) sells a Mac key set to change Alt to Option and Windows to Command, which I ordered and has arrived, but I am in no hurry to install them. This is a serious typing keyboard compared to the usual fare, and I am enjoying it mainly for this reason. I really like the feel and sound better than the Cherry MX Blue keys in the other Das Keyboard models, which are too loud and clacky for my taste. They call this 'Silent,' and of course it's not...but it works for me!

5 out of 5 eggsBest Keyboard I've Ever Had

Pros: I tried the Razer BlackWidow Stealth before this but didn't find the form factor comfortable and had trouble accessing both the esc and caps lock keys. I switched over to the Das Keyboard Model S Professional Silent and I couldn't be happier. Will never buy another keyboard again.

Cons: Spendy! No macros. Also, "silent" is relative. This keyboard is pretty quiet if you type softly, but makes a satisfying clack when typing normally. It isn't 80's keyboard loud, but it's not actually silent either.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: I was looking to upgrade from a cheap keyboard I bought in a hurry when I built my system. I was nervous about spending the $$ for a DasKeyboard, but now I have to say it was money well spent. I broke the keyboard in on a 30 page paper for school and received the highest compliments ever on my work. I attribute the kudos I received to the keyboard. It's that awesome.

Seriously, I bought the silent model and it's not silent, but it is awesome - nice solid feel. I won't be going back. The extra USB hubs are nice also.

I won't even list the price as a con because I think the money was so completely worth it.

Cons: Absolutely none. Even the annoying glances my wife gives me on occasion when my typing really ramps up are worth it.

Other Thoughts: Das Keyboard doesn't offer a 10keyless option. I don't need a number pad and wanted to go as minimal as I could. This was the best option.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard despite driver issues

Pros: Best design out there for both gaming and typing

Cons: Computer sometimes crashes when using the 2 usb ports on the side of the keyboard
A little overpriced

5 out of 5 eggsBest keyboard I've ever used

Pros: This is an amazing keyboard. "Silent" is definitely a misnomer, but the switches have a nice, definite feel without the hard "kah-chunk" of a Model M or other classic mechanical 'board.

Other than the cost, there's no reason not to buy this keyboard.

Cons: Pricey. This is only an issue if you consider your wrists or the accuracy of your typing/gaming/etc. to be worth <$100 of investment over a cheaper keyboard.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this keyboard

Pros: I had been using an old keyboard from 1995 because I loved the tactile feel and absolutely hated the mushy feeling keyboards you commonly get with PCs today. When that one finally died, I researched switches that different manufacturers are using and had a hard time making a decision. Eventually I decided to buy the Das Keyboard Professional Silent keyboard, and I have to say it's awesome. I really wish I had bought one sooner. The tactile feel and sound are great. I love typing on this thing and can type faster on it than I can they mushy type. Having USB ports built into the side is just a bonus.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Don't let the word "Silent" fool you. This is a clackly keyboard. It doesn't have the annoying loud click/ping of the really old keyboards from the 286 era but has more of a clack as you type away.

As background on me, I spend all day typing on a computer at work every day and then come home and sit in front of one here. I have typed on many keyboards packaged with PC's my company has purchased over the years as well as on laptops. In addition to my job, I enjoy programming (as a hobby) as well as gaming. As a result, I do a lot of typing and have become somewhat of a keyboard snob. I will likely buy another of these in the near future and would recommend one to anyone.

5 out of 5 eggsJust buy it already

Pros: Feels great to type on and game with. Great key spacing. Better than I thought a keyboard could ever get.

Cons: Cost

Other Thoughts: If you're reading this review then I can only assume you know enough about mechanical keyboards to want one. My advice is to just take the plunge, it's money well spent and you'll be glad you did it.
