Dumped hot lemon tea on my logitech g15.
Dissembled it and cleaned it,but the N and spacebar dont register. :(

A replacement g15 or g11 would cost me $60-80+.

Amazon surprisingly was selling this for $45.99

    Just got it it today.
    Anyway,the keys have a nice solid feel to them and responsive.

    There's a "cruise control" button that lets you do the same action up to 4 keys,without constantly holding the key down.
    This should be handy for like trekking long distances in oblivion and fallout 3.

    The volume and dimmer knobs have very slight wobble.
    But also have a nice feel.

    Haven't played with assigning macros yet.
    But over all i think its a solid board.

    Cons
    -----
    Escape and Function keys are small and close together,may take a while to get used to.

    No feet on the bottom to tilt the board.


    Key locking issue with Control.
    Seems if you use Ctrl for movement speed in games.
    Your not going to be able to use a 3rd button.

    Example config.
    ---------------
    Ctrl= Walk speed
    W= Walk Forward
    R= Reload

    You wont be able to reload.:D

    I honestly dont use Ctrl in games,so its not a issue for me.


    I do miss my G15 board.
    But this sidewinder was heck of a lot cheaper.
    Its still a solid board and i like the key response of it over my b0rked g15.
    Im very happy with it.

    Seems amazon jacked the the price up the sidewinder now for some reason.
    The G11 and sidewinder are the same price.

    I can't type on keyboards that are flat like that anymore. I mean I could if I *HAD* to, but I really dont' like it.

    I have this on both my home and office machines.
