Being as spoiled as I am with keyboard samples lately, I feel I have a really good handle on the types of keyboards available on the market today. While my personal choice, now that I have access to many styles and switch types, is a plain mechanical keyboard, possibly with some back lighting for the keys, I must still be as objective as possible for other boards that may not feel as nice while typing on them and just get beyond that to functionality and offerings in keyboards that use rubber dome switches. Along with the DarkGlider laser gaming mouse and the mats that I looked at recently, I was also shipped a keyboard to complete the theme on my desktop to full on Sharkoon labeling.
It has been a while since I have seen a rubber dome based keyboard, if I remember right it was the G105 from Logitech. That being said, I have been passing time, rather speedily on mechanical keys since then. Sharkoon steps in with a keyboard based on rubber dome switches, but then continues to add software to allow you to remap or program the keyboard to do just about anything, including mouse functionality. Outside of the 107-key layout there are strides made to make this a unique looking keyboard, while also packing in even more functionality with the 20 multimedia keys found on the side and top edges of this board. There is even a bit of lighting, it's just that it isn't the keys that are getting illuminated with this solution.
As the title states, today we are looking at the Skiller gaming keyboard from Sharkoon. This stylized, fully equipped input device offers just about everything the average gamer will desire in a keyboard, especially those who have never had the pleasure of using mechanical switches to back the key caps. On top of all of the features packed into the software and the multimedia functionality, you are soon going to see what has me most excited about the Sharkoon Skiller; the price.
So hang on tight as we go over the specifications and get to the pricing. This fact alone will make many potential buyers look right past things and should make the Skiller fly off the shelves.
