    Looks bad ash but I couldn't bring myself to spend $300 on a peripheral.

    If I was gonna blow that much on a keyboard, I'd rather have the Razer Deathstalker Ultimate/SWTOR Keyboard for $50 less

    I like it! Still, all it really has is a touchscreen, but you can't be taking your hand from the keyboard to touch the buttons. It has a neat Teamspeak module, but a macro or two can take care of that.

    Once in game it's the mouse and keyboard. Your sound is up and running already.

    I use this, Had the old n50 and had the n52 for many years, the old style, not all pretty blue. I like it because if your not gaming and you need table space you just move it outta the way.

    Umm, lemme see, I got a pic from long ago. You can see it to the left, it has never died, and the software is pretty good. At that price, adding a n52 and a second monitor for teamspeak channels etc is a better deal.



    Link to the n52

    I use a G15 (left behind by my son as he went to duty on a sub) and the N52 and a basic mouse.

    Check the n52 out, maybe it's the magic with much less $$.

    Hard to say what's of value to each of us for gaming though. I'm getting ready to play the new Mechwarrior and this might be coming out:

    So it's up to you. Might be the best self presnt ever, or too big and buyers remorse kicks in.
    I want my old title back.

    Teq, and empty. I don't remember. You should read my exploits at the XS party in Vegas as the 'enabler'.

    Membrane that mimics mechanical? Good job mad catz, you're dumber than nails.

    And on a 300$ keyboard? Laughing my frakkin' arse off.
