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.

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.

Sweet deal if it's any good.
