fantastic I mean come on a keyboard that you can program what you want to be shown, especially with gaming, or drawing programs.

But for now Im using a Saetek, but modded it a little, put some felt under the keys, to block out some of the light

I plan on one of these soon, but trying to hold out for the Wolf Claw III and not settle for the Wolf Claw II

The ultimate keyboard:



It is even worse in real life with tea stains and grime mixed in with dust.

I would have the blank keyboard if it looked/felt like the saitek or had the features of the G15, may slow me down though when I am typing really fast and look at the keys.

That is kind of cool that it has a setup for Quake3 but seriously that is for n00bs who can't f'ing remember the keys so they have to look down and read "Jump" on the space bar. Lolol

Besides, I am left handed which is acually an advantage in FPS imo because I can use the number keypad which has a better button layout for FPS than wasd. wasd is all out of line and stuff.

And that really expensive blank keyboard......wtf it's missing like half the keys of a standard keyboard.

If you have to look down your dead anyway....... just the programability is nice, and look of it. You can't tell me that it would be cool to hit shift and see all the letters turn to caps on your keyboard, and back into small letters after you let go. Its probably gonna cost like 500+ dollors though, so I'll never buy one.

PS my keyboard is so light that I just pick up and move it over 2 feet so I can use the numberpad and my special right handed mouse. HA

Yeah....the numberpad only works good for FPS if you use your left hand. I use the right directional key as jump and enter as crouch....what ever setup you use would just suck by comparison.
