If you don't require a mechanical gaming keyboard, Sharkoon has the new SKILLER SGK4 gaming keyboard for you. This product sticks with rubber domes with has NKRO support, six RGB LED illuminated zones, four profile keys, four illumination keys, macro support, and function keys with preset multimedia actions. Sharkoon prices the SKILLER SGK4 at 29.99EUR.
Sharkoon has extended its range of gaming keyboards and introduces the SKILLER SGK4: a rubber dome keyboard with real n-key rollover support and segmented RGB background illumination, which can be adjusted within six zones. Different colors and lighting effects can be selected using the four dedicated illumination keys. The illumination can also be customized via the SGK4 software for Windows - whether for effects, frequency, direction, color or brightness.

Within the software, individual keys can be reassigned with new commands or with configurable macros. In addition, key response times, the behavior of the Windows key, and the polling rate (up to 1,000 Hz) are also customizable. All modifications can be saved in the keyboard memory in any one of four game profiles. The profiles can also be selected, via dedicated keys, during the game. Additional game profiles can be saved on the PC and, through the software, can then be loaded and stored in the onboard memory of the keyboard.

To enable quick access, the SKILLER SGK4 also features a total of twelve function keys with preset multimedia actions. In combination with the SKILLER key, these will perform actions such as starting the media player or adjusting the volume. Other combinations with the SKILLER key can, for example, lock all the keys of the keyboard or virtually swap the arrow and WASD keys.

To help prevent fatigued hands and wrists after long gaming sessions, the 3-block, classically designed keyboard comes with an integrated palm rest. The keyboard connects via a 180 cm long textile braided cable with a gold-plated USB connector.
