Wolfking Warrior XXtreme Gaming Keyboard
As I have already mentioned, the Warrior XXtreme is a definite departure from the normal QWERTY keyboard. Although at first glance it may seem like an ergonomic keyboard, with the keys split over 2 halves, it is actually 2 separate sets of keys.
The left disc, features almost everything you would expect to find on a normal keyboard, with the exception of some punctuation, a backspace key and other minor keys. As you can see, the keys are arranged to make the standard WASD movement layout easier to control, as well as making the surrounding keys more ergonomically friendly for a gamers left hand. It is also worth noting that the keyboard has a US layout, in that the @ symbol is printed on the 2 key, and the “ symbol is printed on the ‘ key.
Even number and function keys are easy to reach, and the sheer amount of keys available should be more than any gamer needs.
The right disc however, is geared more towards typing, and is designed so that you can type with one hand alone. Although the order may look slightly baffling, it is in fact a QWERTY keyboard, with the right side placed under the left side. This disc also features cursor keys, and everything that was missing from the first disc. And that round circular button in between both discs is a space button, for easy access when using the right disc for typing.
The top of the keyboard features 7 further buttons. 3 of which are volume control, 1 is the escape key, another is a shortcut to start your internet browser, another activates the keyboard “Blue Moon” backlight, and the final button is “K-Lock”. This, as you can guess locks the K key, which is usually used for voice communications, basically meaning you are always transmitting your voice. I think this is an excellent feature which I can see being utilised by many gamers.
Finally the Warrior XXtreme features 2 USB ports on the top right of the keyboard, which I think is always a good feature to add, as USB ports can often be lacking with the wide range of peripherals available today.
