    They allow you to set and change profiles and also disable keys, but I can’t understand why you would want to disable a key.
    The only ones I can think of would be the Windows keys, althought most games now won't go to the desktop when you hit them. My Saitek Cyborg automatically disables them in "gaming mode".

    Have to agree with you on the compact layout. I used to like it for the space saving but now I've got used to having the arrow keys and the Ins/Pg Dn group, I don't think I would like to go back.

    Again Matty a very good review , but no I wont be buying a new bit of PC equipment based on your review

    In regards to being able to disable keys, I recently found out, that on the Razer Lycossa, holding the windows key and pressing the razer icon to the op right, disables this key.
