The Shift is a great keyboard both in terms of comfort and customisation. The interchangeable keysets are something a little different offering pre-configured layouts specially designed for a specific game but they do come at a price – around £20...

The Steelseries Shift is a great keyboard. I have nothing to complain except for my point made on text editing, in the testing section. In fact, I really like this keyboard, if it wasn’t for the weird typo’s it makes. I’d be surprised if this is a...

The level of customization that the SteelSeries Shift offers is simply astonishing. The keysets do a great job of feng shui-ing the board layout, but can be a little touchy at times to install. The software has no problem keeping up with you, and...

So how is the Shift in action? As someone who isn't the most amazing StarCraft II player ever I found it heightened my game tremendously. The labelling of each key and colour-coding, alongside the extra keys on the right hand side made everything very...

The best feature of the SHIFT however is - just like the Z-board - the ability to completely remove and replace the keys. The only downside is that the space bar is split in two by one of the keysets hinges. We did...

The Zboard, the Shift's precursor, was massively flawed. Unfortunately though, SteelSeries seems to believe the Zboard's problems all stem from the execution of the design, not the actual layout itself, and have released the Shift. Some of the key...

It’s tough to set yourself apart as a keyboard—when you get right down to it, most of them are fundamentally the same. The SteelSeries Shift, however, manages to set itself apart in two big ways. First off—do you remember the Zboard? With the...

The first impression consumers will get when unboxing the Shift is that this is a solid keyboard. It has a decent weight to it, which combined with the rubber feet, keeps it planted firmly on the desk. At 4cm thick, with an almost industrial look it...
