DOOM & Overwatch
First of all, gaming was not what we were used to, not that that is a bad thing. While we typically prefer to use a mechanical keyboard, there is a certain something that has kept the SKELTR on the desk much longer than any other membrane keyboard. It has a lot to do with the fact that this keyboard offers anti-ghosting, and can read eight keystrokes at one time without skipping a beat. We also like the positioning of the Thumbster keys, and the remapping ability this keyboard provides with software and Easy Shift.
It has made our gaming in DOOM not change so much, but while all movements were taken from our fingers and delivered to the PC, it is games like Overwatch where remapping can save your bacon. Also with the vast amount of memory, and unlimited profiles and Macros, you can make the SKELTR bend to you will and get the most out of any game you choose to run.
Windows and Productivity
When it came to tinkering around, searching the web, or answering emails, the SKELTR acted like any other keyboard and showed no signs of issues in this aspect. As far as productivity is concerned, this is where we saw our greatest advantage to selecting this keyboard for day to day usage. Whether text messaging, using Skype, or people messaging us through social media, the SKELTR stepped right up and handled its business. With our phone resting comfortably in the device slot on the back edge, we could use the arrow keys to select apps, hit enter to load them, and begin chatting with everyone or answering any questions they might have had.
We also found the hands-free use of the phone calls to be a terrific use of Bluetooth, and again had us fumbling much less with the phone, and keeping our head in the game doing other things right along with the calls and writing on the phone. This is what improved on our productivity the most.
