I would want one of these but I can't justify the 300 Price tag on it. Laughing out Loud

I might as well get a new Graphics Card If I plan on spending that much mula.

Exactly -- too many things that $300 could go towards ... and a keyboard ... well .. just doesn't make sense - and I'm an old-school gamer. I don't know that I'd ever use macro keyboards or mice - I'd have to learn it all over again LOL Smiley

Unless, of course, my hands began to hurt too much to manage the normal method of play

I'm gonig to venture a guess that the OP post'd item isn't compatible with the Logitech API... which would render it marginally pointless.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a Logitech fanboy. Love my Razer equipment.

unfortunately- I've had to learn to play with ergonomic keyboards.
few reasons..

1) i have monstorously sized hands ( flight gloves and such go to size 11. I wear size 13's. I had to have special order gloves usually)
2) I'm broad shouldered. I am @23" from shoulder to shoulder. so it feels unnatural when I use a regular keyboard.


Then.. I'm used to ergonomics these days... so playing with a regular one makes me feel like i'm scrunched together to hit all the keys.

I've seriously looked at this recently - I like seeing vent, and someone had mentioned you can put the pop up in this window...

Agile...if you like seeing vent, might I suggest the solution I got my hubs for his B-day: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824185013

He has like a 28 gazillion wide screen monitor and no room to dual screen truly and hates anything other than his ergo keyboard.  So I got him the little side kick monitor.  He flips it sideways so its tall and skinny and puts vent on it. 

Its quite a perfect solution (if I do say so myself) and fuck tons cheaper than iffy keyboards if you wait til newegg or tiger direct has a sale.  Microcenter might even have em on the shelf.

They also make a more expensive touch screen version that looked like a ton of fun...but was a good bit more costly.

Only problem is, D -- we have two 24 inch monitors on our desks, and absolutely NO space for an additional monitor - no matter the size - it would cover up a portion of one screen or another. Thus the reason the keyboard is a more attractive option. Now, admittedly, there's the overlay option in Vent, but sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't - and I hate that it takes space from my gaming window, and I wish they'd let you move it to exactly where you want it on the screen.

That being said, I'd likely forget to look at the keyboard to see who's talking LOL

Yeah, well, we have two computers at our desks ... so yeah - easier to do two monitors than a switch, especially while you're actively gaming Smiley

I never really had trouble with the overlay (other than hating where it's located) other than in SWTor - and there, well, it was just a PITA.

We literally have a 10 foot long desk that butts against the back of part of our large large sofa...so I could go quad-mon if I had the money or the inclination for a kinky neck.  /snort

Yeah, I've used the overlay for a long time, and, didn't mind it TOO much in TOR, as i left it over the quest list area, which, when raiding, was pretty pointless.

In GW2, though, I can't seem to find a good spot for it...
