The SideWinder X4
Microsoft has "finally" updated its gaming keyboard lineup with a new Sidewinder model, the X4. This wired keyboard claims that it has the most advanced anti-ghosting technology, has an adjustable backlighting, macro recording and profile recording.
The new Sidewinder looks quite neat and we are sure that it should be quite good considering that previously released Sidewinder's are pretty much decent. The advertised "advanced" anti-ghosting technology enables the Sidewinder X4 to endure up to 26 keys pressed at once, if only we had that many fingers. Ghosting can be a problem for gamers on certain keyboards and games, but 26 keys just sounds like an overkill.
The new Sidewinder X4 has a US $59.95 price tag, a three years of warranty and should be available in March.
