Thrown into increased amount of homeworking I spent a lot of time researching how to find a flat noiseless Applelaptop style keyboard. I wasn't looking for a gaming keyboard - more a keyboard to use in my home office. My research led me to the complete opposite of what I set out to buy - a mechanical keyboard! Having decided that I didn't need a numeric keypad (right decision, I probably use one about twice a year) I opted for the Das 4C tenkeyless.

It looks really good (even my wife said this, more on that later), it feels weighty, sturdy and just conveys quality.It is incredible to type on although I am comparing to a low benchmark given the mushy keyboards I have used for years. It's also a lot better than the old school keyboards I used even longer ago.

In terms of features I have already used the USB hub on several occasions as well as the media keys. What is missing? For me, and this is just part of the design which also makes it look very cool and is clearly deliberate, I found it a little difficult to use in low light environments. I can touch type but from time to time do need to look down to find less used characters and as it got darker or the sun moved position I found that I couldn't pick up the lettering on the keys. Is this a huge problem? Probably not if you have convinced yourself you don't needlike backlighting or are a better typist than me. For me it was a bit of a niggle although if I invest in some better lighting in the room (I have done but not yet installed) I suspect it would be irrelevant. The feel on the keys when you press down is great by the way.

My wife recently found herself needing a keyboard and it now looks like she will be commandeering the 4C. The room she works in has better natural light and she also enjoys typing on itloves the design. This means I am now looking to buy another keyboard and having rediscovered the fun of typing from the 4C, I've now ordered a Varmilo VA88m with MX Blue switches. This is no reflection on the 4C - it's more that I am gradually identifying what I'm looking for in a keyboard (i.e. a loud satisfying click). The other contender for me was the Filco MAJESTOUCH-2 TKL. Rightly or wrongly I opted for the Varmilo so that I could still use the media keys - the design also appealed to me (i.e. raised keys, PBT keycaps etc). I'll review that one when it arrives but I will still be borrowing the 4C from the wife now and then when she lets me!

Excellent service from the Keyboard Company by the way - cannot be faulted.

I just bought this and it is almost perfect, for me, but has one really major flaw (from my perspective).

The good news: lovely to type on. Compared to my old mechanical keyboard (which had silent Cherry Red switches), this one makes a little bit of noise, but the more positive action needed to type seems to actually make my typing a bit more accurate (and I'm a really crappy touch-typist). It's not magic of course; I'm still a lousy typist, but the error rate seems a bit lower.

However, Das have printed the letters and numbers in black on a charcoal grey keyboard (they are actually much harder to see than the picture above would suggest), and there's no backlighting. I bought a tenkeyless to bring my mouse in closer, so that my arm is at a less awkward angle when I use it, so that my RSI won't be aggravated as much. All that works, but not being able to see the numbers unless the light is really good, is making the adjustment quite awkward.

Hopefully, I will get used to it and, of course, if you're a really good typist who never needs to look at the keys, you will be fine. But at the moment, this is really a pain.
