I've been thinking about getting one, but I'd like to hear about anyone who has tried one before spending money on it. It's a keyboard replacement for FPS games, and it has TeamSound built in (no headset, it seems).

A friend of mine has one.

He got it from the company that makes them so he could make sure that UT2K3 worked right with it, but when I was visiting him, and he was showing me UT he was playing on the key board and not that thing.

I asked him about it and he said it was cool. I'll ask him to give me more info about it.

Hmm, never heard of this, looks pretty interesting though. I will be waiting to see you're report on this! The team chatter looks alot like microsoft's game voice controls.

It apparently uses TeamSound, which I've never tried.

I bet it takes quite a few minutes before you get the hang of it... Keyboard and mouse for life.

The quest for a better gaming device will never end!

About that Belkin, I bought one when they first came out and I hated it. It was moderately comfortable, but I found button presses to be inconsistent and it felt like a low quality device. That's part of the reason I don't want to just run out and get a tactical board.

I think it is just for the left hand (right most buttons are called thumb buttons) so you still use it in combingation with a mouse.

Hey Airlift, that seems pretty sweet. If you pick one up and like it let me know.
