Das Keyboard 5QS: Focus on what mattersThe 5QS offers a unique feature, transforming an input-only device into a deeply customisable and informative control centre. Set up individual LED notifications using the integrated Das Keyboard Q technology to free up space on your screen. The app Das Keyboard Q allows you to configure these notifications, which can be previewed via the Q-Dial volume knob.
Further adjustments can be made by adding applets, which can be placed on single keys or key groups with an easy-to-use drag and drop workflow. At a basic level, these applets offer access to information such as the weather, stock, quotes, project progress or CPU usage, with the open source API adding near limitless functionality.
Mechanical Gamma Zulu Switches by OmronThe Gamma Zulu switches are exclusively manufactured by Omron for Das Keyboard. They offer a soft-tactile typing experience, similar to the Cherry MX Brown. Therefore, they give audible feedback without disruptive clicking noises. Gamma Zulus require 45g to actuate at a low height of 1.5mm, allowing for a high typing speed.
With full travel of 3.5mm they stay comfortable and grippy nonetheless. A minimum of 100M keystrokes puts these switches, sporting a gold-plated double cross point, at the top of its class. In order to ensure visibility of notifications, even in daylight, the 5QS features RGB+ to illuminate the keyboard with 16.8M especially bright colours (requires a USB 3.0 port). The black keycaps with translucent letters are made from durable ABS.
The keyboard can be switched to the built-in Mac mode via a keyboard shortcut, in order to provide better compatibility with the Apple operating system.
The anodised aluminium cover complements the design of the keyboard. Both the detachable palm rest and the 2m long USB cable aid in ergonomics by supporting the wrists when typing and allowing for easier cable management.
Informative RGB LED lightingAnother highlight of the Das Keyboard 5QS is the RGB+ lighting, which is remarkably bright and shines in 16.8M different colours. These can be deeply customized with the Das Keyboard Q app.
Previously configured notifications can be colour coded by their level of urgency. An approaching deadline could for instance be displayed in increasingly alerting colours, ranging from green to yellow and finally red. Using the integrated RGB profile editor, which comes with pre-configured profiles, up to four profiles can be created and stored.
