Microsoft Hardware launches the “SideWinder X4 Keyboard,” designed to give gamers more control over their gaming experience with the industry’s most advanced anti-ghosting technology (developed by the Applied Sciences Group), this new technology ensures gamers' most complex key combinations will be recognized by the computer to keep the game in action. The keyboard also offers other advanced gaming features such as macro recording, mode and profile switching, and adjustable backlighting. Advanced technology takes anti-ghosting to the next level by allowing gamers to press up to 26 keys at once. Because each key is scanned independently by the keyboard hardware, each key press is correctly detected regardless of how many other keys are being pressed at the same time. The SideWinder X4 Keyboard excels where other keyboards fail, letting users execute key combinations and taking full advantage of their skill and speed. SideWinder X4 Keyboard will be available in March 2010 for the estimated retail price of $59.95 and is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.com.
