Sharkoon releases a new gaming keyboard at a bargain price.

| Peripherals News | Posted: Jun 21, 2012 5:01 pm

Sharkoon has released a new gaming keyboard at CeBIT at an affordable price. I'm always amazed at the prices charged by some companies for gaming keyboards as I figure there is no way it can be that much better. This new gaming keyboard, the Skiller, features 18-key rollover, interchangeable WASD and cursor keys, and software for creating up to ten keyboard profiles.

With all those features, you'll be surprised to learn that it comes with an MSRP of only 14.99 euros, which works out to about $20 USD, give or take 0.25. The keyboard features a stunning visual design that includes a striking geometric design and a blue illuminated Skiller logo in the palm rest.

 

The company explains the features and how it is customizable: "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."
