Sooo Much Better. 04/06/2014
This review is from: Razer Orbweaver Gaming Keypad
Easy to set up
Plenty of buttons that are easy to hit
Sturdy on my desk (does not slide around)
Space button is actually a mouse click type button
Buttons become stuck (in software)
Not accepting keystrokes
Cable not braided
Software must connect to the "cloud"
If you are looking for a comfortable, sturdy gamepad with plenty of buttons, this is for you. The buttons feel great and it really helps clear up your desk. I don't think I could ever go back to a standard keyboard after having this. It is so easy to customize to your liking and everything is right at your fingertips. If you practice enough you can probably use the thumbpad to fly jets and choppers. Mechanical keys are awesome!!
I have to take an egg off because of the space button being a mouse click and the keys sticking. To be clear, the keys themselves are not sticking, it seems to be something to do with the software. This is a pretty big deal, coupled with the every so often failure to process a keystroke. I will be playing BF4 and at random times I will let go of whatever direction I'm moving and my character will continue to move!! I have to repress the button to get it to stop. I normally just mash the keypad when this happens because I freak out. It will happen about 4 to 5 times in an hour of game play. This is HIGHLY unacceptable from a device that costs this much.
I will also remove an egg for the random, what I will call, "failure to process" keystrokes. This is when I will hit the key to move and nothing happens. I believe this is also software because I feel the mechanical key depressing? If they could look into this and send out an update, that would be great. I know I am not the only one having this problem.
I also feel like the space bar (mouse click) will eventually wear out, just as all mice do. It should be a mechanical key like all of the others.
