Sharkoon Skiller Review

 

Sharkoon has stepped into the gaming-keyboard ring with its new budget plank called the Sharkoon Skiller, which is loaded with hotkeys and a macro-recording software suite. Those of you not familiar with Sharkoon should know that the company started...

Membrane keys feel mushy; power and sleep too easy to hit; media keys only work with WMP

Awesome Keyboard

 

I would use this keyboard again without hesitation if my current keyboard breaks down in the future. I highly doubt it will, but there is always that possibility.

I originally bought this keyboard off a different website (too long to remember) about 2 years ago, and I have loved this keyboard ever since I had gotten it in the mail. I never really bothered with macros or anything, so using macros or issues with...

-Lost my install disk for the Macro configuration (I didn't use them anyways, so not really a Con). -When I replaced the regular keys with the rubberized keys for WASD, they broke down pretty fast, especially the tops of my W key, they also got dirty...

Feels really good.

 

People have said in the comments that the LEDs is very bright, but I really don't find it that bright. I also read that someone said it was very loud. Compared to a lot of the keyboards I've used its either the same volume or lower. I haven't tried the...

-The rubberized keys are nice. -The tool they give you to remove keys works very well. -There seems to be holes in the keyboard for spelt liquids. -The cable is thick and feels like quality. -The "S" on the bottom of the keyboard lights up and is nice....

-There is a power and sleep button on the top right. (But you can disable them through windows, which is what I did) -The backspace button is a bit small.

Good Keyboard

 

Overall I would say that this is a very nice keyboard and if you're looking at it over the original Skiller, I would say definitely it is worth the extra $5 to get this one. The backlit keys are neat and the keyboard overall has a good feel. My main...

Neat blue glow ; Font is nice and futuristic ; Buttons for profile modes ; Quiet typing / gaming ; 6 Macro / custom keys ; Slightly textured keys ; Good look (better than regular Skiller) ; Braided cloth covered USB cable ; Remembers settings through...

No way to save settings for non-profile mode ; Only 3 profiles (but can save / load profiles) ; HUGE Enter button (Moves '| \' key next to smaller RShift) ; Defaults to 'breathe' mode when turning off gaming profile ; Also defaults to 'breath' mode on...

Good Plank..... for a year

 

I bought this on sale. I expected a bit more.

Nice board. Responsive, macro capability.

Software is a bloated joke. 18-key roll-over is laughable. You cannot use keys on the bottom and top alphabet row simultaneously.

Great for your money

 

Very decent price for what you're getting. Great gaming keyboard, keys are very responsive and it never lags.

None whatsoever. Just wish keys were illuminated with a huge price jump. Still a great keyboard!

good

 

Worth it. I average 1 year per keyboard, fine. Haven't had it long enough for 5 stars , historically this brand is solid for me.

software does a lot, keys are comfortable, good enough build for the price

no lights, I need lights., thought this was lit. I'll get a keyboard light till my lit one arrives, long key throw, key decals seem thin, but I can swap keys if a problem

Not What I Was Expecting

 

It works

Skiller Keyboard Review I have given this 2 stars because of the cosmetics. Within seconds of removing the keyboard from the box I was disappointed. The decals for the keys (the letters/numbers/etc) look as if they were put on by a child. I remember...

Rosewill sells the same keyboard with some esthetic changes but at a lower price

Extras are great, keys are solid & responsive( I can pound the keys & they take it like a champ)
