Ideazon Zboard Gaming Keyboard ReviewPosted on 2005-09-27 12:56:35 by LSDsmurf
The Overclocker Cafe' has posted a review of the Ideazon Zboard Gaming Keyboard. For those of you not familiar with the Zboard, it consists of a base unit with swappable keyboard inlays laid out to make gameplay easier and more intuitive. The left side of the board is laid out around several oversized red keys binded with the typical movement keys of W, S, A and D. Other gaming hotkeys for crouch, run, jump, etc are laid out in this area for easy and fast finger reach. Here's a snip of the review.
In use, there wasn't a pause for me to tell myself "you know, I'm fragging one helluva lot more here" but there was a moment or two of feeling my action being a smidge cleaner. The kind of thing you don't think about until after the fact. That thing being the indirect way the Zboard wins you over. My gameplay felt more relaxed and less stressed with the search/stabbing for keys I was used to a few weeks ago, eliminated. The Zboard's ergonomics for lack of a better word, reminded me that playing games is supposed to be physically as well as emotionally pleasant.
