Important message about potential character inversions

Hello everyone!  I am Daniel the creator of Das Keyboard. We are a US company located in Austin Texas and we love the passion of our users.

We have been looking into the character inversion phenomenon that occurs in some cases. As Devin Coldewey from CrunchGear says describing a Das Keyboard user experience: “when keys are pressed in rapid succession on his Das Keyboard, the letters always show up on the screen as if he’d pressed the leftmost keys first, then the ones on the right. “. This was brought to our attention last November. Our testing has shown that this is in fact a “limitation” of the first version of our keyboards.  The detection time of the current version was designed as 100ms which means that if you are a very, very fast typist, approximately 120 words per minute then, you might encounter this limitation.  It’s something we are redesigning for the next version of Das Keyboard.

In the meantime, we would be more than happy to let anyone who is experiencing this problem return the keyboard for a full refund. To do so, you can contact me at any time at +1-512-346-0360 or via e-mail at daniel(at) If you would like to discuss this with me personally, you can reach me the same way or I am happy to discuss it here in our community. Your feedback is critically important to us, please keep it coming to help us improve future generations of our keyboard. Thank you.
