Sharkoon Launches $15 Compact Keyboard for Gamers

Paul Lilly

Sharkoon doesn't have a ginormous presence in the U.S. market, but if the company's going to make a habit of releasing ultra-affordable peripherals for gamers, stateside customers should ready the welcome mat. To wit, Sharkoon's new Tactix Gaming Keyboard is a compact plank for game players that carries an MSRP of 12.99 euros, or about $15 and change in U.S. currency.

The keyboard measures 16.96 inches (L) by 5.35 inches (W) by 0.94 inches (W) and weighs 1.3 pounds. It has N-key rollover support, eight rubberized gaming keys (WASD and arrow keys), and special customization software.

Sharkoon says all the keys are fully programmable via the software GUI, allowing gamers to record macros, macro loops, media functions, Internet functions, and more. It will also bind mouse functions and supports timing delays to help pull off that killer combo and aid with the daily grind of leveling up.

No word on when or if Sharkoon plans on bringing the Tactix to the U.S. market.
