Sharkoon Launch The SKILLER SGK5 Gaming Keyboard
Sharkoon has announced the availability of its new gaming keyboard in the form of the SGK5, offering an affordable gaming keyboard priced at €40. Equipped with a removable palm rest and supplied with “intuitive gaming software” the SKILLER SGK5 gaming keyboard offers full N-Key rollover support allowing numerous keys to be pressed at once for complex manoeuvres during gameplay.
The main feature of the Sharkoon SKILLER SGK5 is its RGB lighting – six RGB zones comprising 16.8 million colours are pre-configured with ready to use lighting effects that can be selected via dedicated keys, without the need for any additional software. To further personalise the SKILLER SGK5’s RGB lighting, free software can be downloaded for users to uniquely configure the keyboard as desired.
Traditional rubber dome keyboards are usually only capable of 2-key rollover, meaning a maximum of two keystrokes can be simultaneously registered. However, with the SKILLER SGK5, n-key rollover is supported to allow numerous keys to be pressed at the same time and reliably communicated to the keyboards system. In addition, the SGK5 features anti-ghosting technology for gamers to remain in control all the time.
“With customizable RGB backlighting, high-performance gaming software and a number of dedicated special keys, the SKILLER SGK5 is made for convenient multimedia enjoyment and exhilarating gaming experiences. And those who like the typing feel of rubber dome will be especially pleased. This is ensured by quickly-responding keys with a flat design and full n-key rollover support, which is a feature usually reserved for mechanical keyboards only.”
If required, the key response time can be adjusted to suit the user’s preference. In addition to that, Sharkoon has equipped the SKILLER SGK5 with dedicated keys for lighting effects, macros and gaming profiles. Two rotary knobs are situated at the top right of the keyboard to control volume and LED brightness. Downloadable software is available not only to control lighting but to assign macros and configure gaming key profiles too.
– Fast Reacting Rubber Dome Switches
For inputs with an especially quick response, the SKILLER SGK5 is equipped with mid-height, quick-triggering keys with a keycap height of only seven millimeters. The life cycle of the rubber domes amounts to at least ten million keystrokes, and the keyboard can thus be expected to have a long lifespan. If desired, it is also possible to adjust the key response time.
Practical Special Keys for Gaming and Multimedia
In addition, Sharkoon has equipped the keyboard with dedicated keys for lighting effects, macros and game profiles. The keys enable uncomplicated use in everyday situations and while gaming. With two integrated rotary knobs on the top right corner of the keyboard, the volume and illumination brightness can be intuitively adjusted.
Gaming Software for Full Modification
With the free, downloadable gaming software from Sharkoon, not only the illumination but also numerous keyboard functions can be controlled. Macros and multimedia commands can be easily programmed, reassigned and saved in a number of profiles. Adjustments are saved in the onboard memory of the SKILLER SGK5.
The Sharkoon SKILLER SGK5 is available across Europe with a manufacturer suggested price of €39.99.
