Has potential, but difficult to get used to 10/20/2013
This review is from: SteelSeries Merc Stealth Black USB Wired Ergonomic Gaming Keyboard
Potentially can be very useful for mmo/fps type gaming with nearby skill keys, etc. Cool that it lights up and has connectors for headphone/mic.
- Difficult to get used to: They put the end/home, etc keys with the numpad, as well as the arrow keys.
Very annoying for someone who often takes advantage of scrolling documents with page down/page up, end, home, etc. Also takes a lot of getting used to on the numpad. I'm a lot slower on it than a regular size numpad.
I'm used to completing web addresses in Chrome by hitting the arrow keys and typing the next letter. Having the arrow keys as part of the numpad throws me off big time.
- Keyboard is very large. I have it sitting down with a mouse on a large gaming mouse pad and if I wanna use the "gamepad", I have to scoot it in taking up precious mouse real estate, and then if i wanna type I have to scoot it back to the left.
- Gamepad is neat but I still feel a bit more effective with the keyboard. I've forced myself to use it for a while but still not used to it. Has potential, especially for games with number keys as skills (as they are on top of each other instead of one long row).
I am now trying to sell mine. Just don't have the patience to get used to it =/
If you don't care about numpads, arrow keys, home/end/etc keys, then you might be ok.
