It’s not that hard to spend well over a hundred bucks on a killer gaming keyboard, and although we’d like to tickle the keys ourselves before endorsing anything, Sharkoon
just announced a feature-rich gaming keyboard for the low, low price of just 14.99 euros (about $19 USD).
The Sharkoon Skiller Gaming Keyboard features 18-key rollover for better accuracy in heated games, 20 multimedia keys (some at the top and some located on the sides), and up to ten profiles (with three sub-levels) for assigning macros to any and all standard keys with included software. An extra bit of zing comes in the form of interchangeable blue rubber gaming keys for the WASD cluster and cursor keys.
As far as looks, the Skiller is black with what looks like battle armor around its edges, and it’s highlighted by a blue illuminated Sharkoon logo on the palm rest. For under 20 bucks and with the features it has, the Skiller could be a sweet deal.
