Sharkoon Tactix is a USB keyboard, and addresses the problem of ghosting by providing 18-key rollover (up to 18 simultaneous key presses get registered). The keyboard bears a conventional QWERTY layout, and comes in several regional options. The W, A, S, D, and arrow keys are replaceable, the package includes sets of blue, rubberized anti-slip keys, so you can't go wrong with pressing the right key in the heat of the battle.

Measuring 431 x 136 x 24 mm, the Tactix lacks any dedicated macro keys, including multimedia keys, there are just the conventional 107-keys. Sharkoon instead includes a software that lets you set key combinations and re-map the keyboard. Up to 10 profiles holding unique sets of key combinations can be stored (on the PC, not in the keyboard). The keyboard ships with a detachable palm-rest (made of the same ABS plastic as the rest of the keyboard).

The Sharkoon Tactix uses common membrane switches, which probably plays a big role in its pricing by the company. It sells for just 12.99€ (S$19.8).
