Default SteelSeries Announces High-End Gaming Keyboard

From our front-page news:
To be a professional gamer, you need to have the right equipment. Well, it's more likely the fact that you need more than half of your life worth of free time for practice, but that's besides the point. SteelSeries is a company which promise to deliver what pro-gamers want, while telling the world what other companies are doing wrong. Is it safe to assume that SteelSeries does no wrong, then? We will have to reserve judgement until we have their gaming peripherals in our labs.

The 7G "Professional Gaming" keyboard is comprised of high-quality components and long-life promises that gamers are after. What do you get for your hard-earned dollar? 18K gold mechanical switches, for one, and also an enhanced PS/2 buffer-system that allows the highest possible actions-per-minute. While some keyboards crap out when you push four or five keys at once, the 7G is supposedly able to handle all of the keys being pushed down at once. I am not sure I'd want to see the result of doing that, though! The 7G will be available next month for $149.99 (MSRP).

The combination of the powerful PS/2 buffer-system and 18K gold-plated mechanical switches, means that the SteelSeries 7G offers more Actions-Per-Minute than any other keyboard in the world. The keyboard was built specifically to offer gaming grade response times as well as an unmatched durability with a switch lifetime of 50 million operations.
