Sharkoon Announces Skiller Gaming Keyboard

Sharkoon brings to the market another innovation from its gaming lineup featured at CeBIT: The Sharkoon Skiller gaming keyboard comes with an 18-key rollover, interchangeable WASD and cursor keys, and software for creating up to ten keyboard profiles.

Visually, the Skiller has defining corners and edges: The black keyboard comes in a striking geometric design; an additional eye-catcher is the blue illuminated Skiller logo in the palm rest. Gamers who want to highlight and haptic their WASD and Cursor keys will find enclosed eight interchangeable rubber keys all in blue. In addition to the 107 standard keys, the Sharkoon Skiller has 20 multimedia keys for Internet and Media applications.

The Skiller is fluid in its operation: Thanks to its 18-key rollover, players will not be at a disadvantage during action-packed gaming situations which require simultaneous quick and accurate key commands.

With its programmable keys and profile memory, the Skiller is an extremely versatile companion that quickly adjusts to all changing areas of operation: Through the enclosed software all standard keys can be assigned frequently used individual functions or macros. The configuration supports the creation of up to ten profiles, each with three sub-levels. This allows an optimal keyboard layout for a variety of different applications and gaming environments to be created with only a little bit of effort.

The keyboard measures 485 x 212 x 25 mm, weighs 603 grams and is equipped with a 150 cm long USB cable.

End customers will find the Sharkoon Skiller Gaming Keyboard available for the suggested retail price of 14.99 euros in authorized retailers.

If by looks you mean a logo switch? I do agree though logo switch is a lot prettier, I'd get this over the Rosewill. They have a gross logo.

I think these companies need to start creating naming departments.

The biggest problem with this keyboard and the Rosewill is the backspace key being so small... I almost bought one of the Rosewill when I spotted the small backspace key. :toast: Just a heads up if you are thinking about getting either. :toast:

Seems only a tad smaller than regular size to me.

My space bar takes up 6 regular keys, this one looks to be about 5 and half 5 at the least.

This shouldn't affect typing performance after a week or so of use you'll be used to the size : ]

I'd say go for it, it's cheap! :laugh:

I like the layout. Big enter and classic layout around the arrow keys.
