The Shift base was also designed to make it easy to plug-in your peripherals. Also included, are gold-plated microphone-in and audio-out ports, as well as two 2.0 USB ports (one powered). If you are into marco’s this is the keyboard for you; You can record macros and actions on-the-fly. You can start recording macros directly from the base of the keyboard and quickly assign them to 8 specific hotkeys with 3 unique layers, giving you an easy access to a total of 24 keys.

You also have the ability to change you keyset to your game of choice, with titles such as World of Warcraft, Medal of Honor and more.
