This review will be on the Steel Series Shift Cataclysm Keyboard and another for the Steel Series Cataclysme mouse will be posted soon so keep your eyes peeled!
Steel Series Shift Cataclysm keyboard (http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?sku=880048&affid=9797)
This brand new keyboard from Steel Series may be the last keyboard you will ever need to buy! The title is a bit confusing portraying this as a stand alone keyboard but the fact is the Steel Series Shift is the new base keyboard from Steel Series and has many great functions. The keyboard comes out of the box as a standard keyboard with a number pad, they keyboard is fantastic it feels hard and sturdy with many addons such as programable keys and the ability to program up to three profiles on the keyboard. It has built in usb ports and audio/mic ports on it but now it shows its greatest feat as you look to the right of the keyboard, a handle sticks out of the keyobard slightly but still blends in quite well. Pulling on the handle removes the standard keyset and allows it to be folded up and stored as you pull out the cataclysm keyboard and lock it down, the whole keyboard is changed with all the keys stating their WoW actions such as the C key says Character on it to pull up your character. The greatest treat is the whole programed and re-keyed keypad side, the entire keypad is replaced with new buttons such as: auto run, guild chat, emote bar buttons, exit vehicle, and many more. Alone the Steel Series Shift keyboard runs for around $95.00 but the Cataclysm edition will run you about $100.00 which is a steal, the keypad purchased alone will run you $25.00 so purchasing the Cataclysm Shift Keyboard and Shift Series keyboard bundle will save you alot of cash to spend on another month of WoW time! The Steel Series Shift keboard also comes with many other swapable keypads and your Cataclysm keypad will work on your old Z-Board if your using one, with so many positives it really is hard to pass this offer up.
Happy PvP hunting to everyone and hopefully this will give you more insight on this keyboard if you are still on the edge about buying one, keep an eye out for the Cataclysm mouse review coming soon!
