Enjoy the audio and tactile feedback of soft keys on the compact 4 Pro Mechanical Keyboard for Mac from Das Keyboard. The full-size keyboard features all the Mac-specific keys you are used to, as well as a convenient, large volume knob. The extra-long 6.5' cord plugs into a USB port on your computer, which also provides power for the two USB 3.0 ports on the keyboard. Use this USB hub to transfer files, sync your phone, and attach peripherals. An unexpectedly handy feature is the footbar that raises the keyboard, which is magnetically detachable and scaled on both sides so it can double as a 16" ruler when not in use. A designated sleep key on the 4 Pro puts your computer to sleep, helping you save energy and get back up and running faster than if you had to shut down and restart. Sturdy construction will keep your 4 Pro running for a long time.

Soft Switches with Tactile Bump
The Brown switches have a soft, tactile bump about halfway through the key press. The Soft Pressure Point switch technology makes the mechanical keyboard less clicky while providing a pleasant tactile experience. The gold-plated switches don't rust and will last up to 50 million keystrokes.
Volume Knob & Dedicated Media Controls
With its large volume knob, Das Keyboard 4 Pro for Mac allows users to quickly adjust volume while on a Skype call, in a Google Hangout, or when streaming online music. It also provides quick access to dedicated media controls such as mute, play, pause, next, and previous track. In addition to standard Command and Alt/Option keys, the 4 Pro offers access to a number of other Mac-specific key functions. The keyboard makes it easy to toggle between screens, view your desktop along with other applications that you have open, and access your brightness controls, all at the push of a button.
Durable Keys
The 4 Pro's silk screen keys are UV hard coated for extra durable inscriptions. The inscription font is also modernized to provide greater ease of reading. The home keys, F and J, have the traditional bumps to help you place your fingers correctly.
N-Key Rollover
NKRO, or n-key rollover, means that each key is scanned completely independently by the keyboard hardware, so that each keypress is correctly detected regardless of how many other keys are being pressed or held down at the time. This is especially helpful for fast typists and gamers who often press a key before they've fully released the previous one.

    4 Pro Mechanical Keyboard for Mac (Soft Switches) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not fully Mac compatible. Very well made solid keyboard. Key clicks are satisfying when compared to the indistinct mushy feel of chiclets keyboards. Keyboard is sold as Mac compatible (for a higher price). Computer does not recognize keyboard during boot so... Command R and Option key presses are not recognized. Therefore to boot into Recovery partition or display all available bootable drives one needs another keyboard, rather self defeating for buying an expensive replacement keyboard. One also has to use System preferences/Keyboard to map function keys to standard Mac shortcuts (except for brightness: up/dn and crtrl, option, cmd) plus of course no pictographs to remind one what key is what. Nice keyboard but not a Mac keyboard replacer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A top notch non-gaming mechanical keyboard I purchased this keyboard for use with my Mac. The build quality is excellent and the key response is excellent. My typing speed has improved dramatically compared to typing on a membrane keyboard. The media controls on the keyboard are a welcomed addition and the volume knob has a high quality click feel to it. The brown switches are also quieter than the blue switches. It's louder than a membrane or scissor keyboard but not as loud as other mechanical keyboard.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! High quality build. Responsive keys. Pleasure to use. The sound and video control is a nice bonus.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, not great Great build quality -- like a tank. Love the integrated media and volume controls, very thoughtful touch and actually very useful. Couple of things give me pause. First, standard Mac keys such as bright/volume are not indicated. Secondly, I find it much harder to type on than my trusty K120. I think the mechanical key thing is overrated.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Keyboard I own a lot of keyboards and this one is a favorite. Excellent build quality and very solid. I really enjoy the feel of the keys. And they are not too loud when I type. I can see this keyboard lasting a very long time.
