Revoltec FightBoard Advanced keyboard reviewThis is my last review of products from Revoltec's gaming gear lineup. Earlier this month I've already published a review on the Precison Pro and Precision Advanced mousepads, along with a test of Revoltec's FightMouse. These products performed pretty well and most of them are available at a fairly low price. In this review I'm taking a closer look at the Revoltec FightBoard keyboard, this is a keyboard specifically designed for gamers.
The FightBoard Advanced ships in this blue box which features some tribals. The front has a see-through window and the back features lots of information about this keyboard.
The keyboard is black and just like the Revoltec FightMouse Advanced gaming mouse it features a carbon-like look. This is quite subjective but personally I think the keyboard looks pretty good.
Also included was a gummed palm rest which can be attached to the keyboard for a bit more comfort:
The FightBoard advanced also ships with a quite detailed manual and a CD ROM with the software to activate the special function keys.
The most special features of the Revoltec FightBoard advanced are the:
Carbon-like design Interchangeable fightkeys, the standard movement keys can be replaced A Windows key deactivation button Ten programmable macro keys + 2nd function key = 20 programmable buttons
Dimensions: 495 x 200 x 28 mm (L x B x H) Weight: 0,9 Kg Layout: 104 keys Hotkeys: 11 Macro keys: 10 (20 with dual allocation) Connection: USB 2.0 (compatible with USB 1.1) Compatibility: Windows Vista / XP 64 / XP / 2000

Most keyboards from Logitech are pretty good IMO and they have lots of good keyboards that cost less than $50. If you really need all the programmable keys you can take a look at the Logitech G11, I haven't tested this keyboard yet but it's priced around 50EUR and has lots of programmable keys, multimedia features and key illumination.

I suppose you are looking for a FightBoard with a Belgian AZERTY layout? When Revoltec asked me to review this keyboard I asked them if they had a FightBoard with a Belgian AZERTY layout but their PR person told me they didn't have these in stock because they aren't selling their products in Belgium yet.
They do have FightBoard keyboards with a French AZERTY layout but the text on the buttons of that layout is in French and two or three of the punctuation buttons are different than the Belgian layout.
