I guess from many years of Data Entry with my employer. Is why I choose the traditional Keyboard W,A,S,D + Mouse for FPS. I know some male counterpart gamers only use the Numeric Pad & Mouse to game. I've yet to win them over on using the left side of the Keyboard. Wonder if Playstation had a role in this behavior?

Anyway, now with the whole Doom 3 craze banner ads hitting PC's screens every 0.911 seconds. I saw an interesting product on the D3 wave as well. The Z-board proclaimed to be "the worlds first PC Gaming Keyboard". Z-board offers additional "Keysets" D3 being the newest one of course. I would like very much to see a review/rating done by Maximum PC on this!

Thanks, Pale

When was the review? Any idea how I can get a copy? I did a Search here on Ideazon, ZBoard and Z-Board - nothing.

As an FYI, I've read a number of other reviews, and they do seem to be mixed.

It got a 6 in the April 2003 issue. I gave it a low score because I honestly didn't see much value in a $10-$20 per game peripheral that people would only use for 15-20 hours.

For multiplayer games and MMO games it's a little different story.

The 1st Z-Board, wasn't very good in reviews with anyone. The current version fixed those problems and is USB. I bought the 2nd version USB. Just yesterday, I was able to download Doom3 pre-set and use with the "Gamers Keyset" standard now with your purchase of a Z-board. I'm happy with this new version USB.
