Summary: Before reviewing the Das Keyboard Model S Ultimate I believed all keyboards were created fairly equally. The main difference in my mind was the addition of optional features such as multimedia controls or the addition of macro keys.
Pros: Excellent mechanical keyboard with tactile and acoustic feedback, Built in USB hub, Quality build, P+Should improve touch typing skills over time
Conclusion: If you think the cost is high for a keyboard, you're right, but the Das Keyboard Model S more than gives you your money worth. With gold-plated mechanical key switches (rated for upwards of 50 million key presses), you can both feel and hear the elegant, comfortable typing experience you'll receive.
Pros: Provides an outstanding experience for both the fingers and the ears. Hefty construction. Integrated USB hub. Can support full n-key rollover. Now works with KVMs.
Cons: Very expensive. No media keys. Full n-key rollover requires PS/2 port connection. The Blank Ultimate version may drive non-touch typists insane.
Summary: Metadot konnte mit Das Keyboard Model S Ultimate alle Schwächen der Vorgänger korrigieren und wartet mit einem herausragenden Produkt auf. Endlich wird der potentielle Nutzerkreis nicht mehr auf Fans der IBM Type-M beschränkt.
