Das Keyboard Model S adds media keys, more
Das Keyboard today grew out its input line through Model S, its first full-feature keyboard. The new peripheral now have media keys for music playback and a second USB port for a peripheral. Compatibility also gets a boost through support for KVM multi-computer switches and a PS/2 adapter for older Windows PCs.
The Das Keyboard's signature key switches remain in place and are tailored to provide strong feedback that's often absent on most conventional desktop keyboards.
The Model S itself comes in its main Professional version for $129 as well as a label-free Ultimate edition for those trained to type without looking. A Professional Silent model costs $135 and has a significantly reduced audible click with each key press. All three are due to ship by the end of October.
