Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
Sharkoon will be focusing entirely on gaming for this years CeBit 2012 event. The flagship of the new peripherals is the Sharkoon DarkGlider Mouse. This features a matte black rubberized design with a 6000DPI/11,750FPS sensor courtesy of the Avago ADNS-9500 Laser. Mouse movements transmit up to 30G with a response time of 1ms. There is an LCD DPI display, 10 programmable keys, 4 way scroll wheel, weight tuning system and 256KB onboardy memory for user profiles and customisations. Finally there is ceramic glider feet, a gold plated USB connector and braided textile cable.
The Sharkoon Drakonia Mouse gets a glossy design with a green dragon scale print. This mouse also features the weight tuning system, onboard memory, gold plated USB and braided cable. This mouse features the same laser as the Dark Glider but with 5000DPI. The 11750 FPS sampling and acceleration force movement of up to 30G remains the same as the Dark Glider. This mouse gets 11 programmable buttons/keys and comes with some configuration software to help you use those.
For the more budget user Sharkoon is offered the Squad mouse which is a compact ergonomically designed mouse measuring in at 116.5 x 79 x 40 mm (L x W x H) with a 1600DPI laser. This one features a rubberized black design and an impressive six customisable mouse keys.
The Sharkoon DarkGlider gaming mouse pad and the Sharkoon Drakonia gaming mouse pad are available on a 355 x 255 mm wide, nano-coated precision playing surface, with an anti-slip rubber bottom and double stitching around the border to protect against fraying.
In addition, Sharkoon will present three Gaming keyboards at CeBIT:
The black Sharkoon Skiller features 107 standard and 20 multimedia keys with an 18 Key Rollover and as bonus blue interchangeable keys to replace the WASD and cursor keys. All of the standard keys can be programmed individually with the accompanying software. For use in a variety of games, programs, operating systems or browsers, a total of ten profiles can be created each with three subordinate levels.
Also equipped with 107 programmable standard keys, an 18 Key Rollover and interchangeable WASD and arrow keys is the Sharkoon Tactix. It does not require any special multimedia keys and comes in a compact form measuring 431 x 136 x 24 mm.
The Sharkoon Nightwriter is again for the first time an LED keyboard from Sharkoon: For the transparently marked 105 standard and 13 multimedia keys can be illuminated blue by clicking its on switch. The low-profile design and ergonomically contoured hand rest makes the Nightwriter an enjoyable input device even after hours of use.
