    You should have showed it at different angles or at least moved it around more. For awhile I thought I was just staring at a picture...

    Nice review thanks. Coming from years of console gaming I haven't found a keyboard that didn't cause strains and pains. I'm hopeful the g13 will change that.

    It's about $60-$70 these days. The thumb hat/joystick is what usually wears out on my gamepads. It happend to my N50, N52, Saitek Cyborg and, apparently to the G13. I'll probably get the G13 anyway since it seems to be the best of that group even if the joystick does wear or get sticky. Taking it apart and trying to clean it out or fix it rarely works long-term anyway. Maybe I should stop using the thumb button for WASD lol. Great review BTW, it's appreciated.

    I wonder if this device is able to memorize the sequence. for example by pressing a single button it will execute a sequence "press the action button, wait a few seconds, press the action button again."

    @Gli2duS yes the G13 can do what your asking. The software that comes with the G13 allows you to macro keyboard keys and insert delays and all that. Overall the macro / scripting functions of the G!3 are fairly easy to use and quite powerful.

    @WolfManz611 thank you so much buddy, the joystick is actually the only reason why i'm buying it lol. I'm using it for games like dragon age 2, world of warcraft and the upcoming MMO Guild wars 2, but they won't let me use my xbox controller, so i'm forced to get used to WASD which slow me down so bad because I have to look at the keyboard to see if i'm pressing the right key. And believe me, that destroys all the fun :(. I guess this will be the answer to my problem. Thank you soooo much =)

    @33hbj Ya it should still be good for people with smaller hands. The best thing you can do though is find one in a store and see how it feels before you spend the money on it. If its too big then you may want to look at the game boards that belkin makes like the N50 or N52 these are smaller devices and what I used before I got the G13.

    Great review! After watching sevaral others, this is the only one that explained that I could use the thumb stick to move my character. I never learned to use a keyboard, for the past several years I have been using the MS Strategic commander. Windows 7 does not support it so it's time to move on. Thanks again for the info

    If those games you mentioned accept keyboard input then yes, the G13 will work with them you just have to program the G13 to do what it is you want it to in the game. The G13 is essentially a fully programmable keyboard and will work with any game that can use keyboard input.

    BF3 already has a built-in profile available, so they will be bound to Reload, Weapon 1 Weapon 2, etc., instead of "R, 1, 2, 3." It's pretty awesome

    it's nice, but i have no use for it, all the macro keys on the G19 is more than enough, but it does look cool though

    Yes you can use it for WSAD or use the joystick that's up to you. The G13 is highly configurable so you shouldn't have a any issues with setting it up the way you want to and there are a lot of buttons that you can program to be your jump button. For me i use the joystick on it all the time to handle character movement in FPS and do to that i simply cant use a keyboard for FPS do to the lack of a joystick. I think the G13 is worth getting if you are into FPS.

    Do you have another computer you could try the G13 on and see if it does the same thing on a different computer? If you don't have another computer to try it on then you may want to try and take the G13 back to the store and see about an exchange for another one and see if that gives you issues. If you get a second G13 and it two causes the shutdown then you can be sure its not the G13 that's at fault but there may be a conflict with some hardware / software on your computer.

    is the recession on wasd bothersome for people who aren't going to be playing fps? i'm mainly looking at this for mmorpg's, just so I can strafe/move with the joystick and bind spells to the keys.

    you mean the rounded holes on the kays? well no i find it help full to get my hand in the right place. in strategy games i always use the analog stick for map movement and keys for spells/commands/macros. altho some skill is needed to get use to the tumb stick at first.and the tumb stick almost newer works on analog only digital "In games".

    I come to the realization that PC is dominate in FPS. I just needed something with a analog and i think i have found my solutions. Years of a controller i can't live with that wsad gives me bad carpel tunnel in the fingers.
