There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

It's big. It's loud. It's expensive. (Did we mention that it's loud?) And if you want the tactile experience of an old-school keyboard (think the classic IBM Model M), the Das Keyboard Model S Pro may be as good as it gets. In addition to the expected mechanical-switch keys, this one adds some modern features, including media-control keys and dual USB ports. Just be prepared to keep your office door closed at all times, or to deal with banishment if you work in a cube.
