    Gaming Keyboard

    Hi I have just recently formatted my system, and I have the Merc Z board keyboard, however when i now install the software, it will not recognise the keyboard in the z engine, so i can not take advantage of the gaming pad!
    I have tried to manually install the drivers, but it either fails, or says the drivers are invalid

    Any ideas would be appreciated! thanks
    Luke

    p.s. If its any help I also use the microsoft habu mouse, and was having the same problem with this, i.e. it not being recognised in the razer control pannel, however I did solve this by manually installing drivers.

    Re: Gaming Keyboard

    Well Logitech is meant to have good customer service according to some recent posts by other users on Hexus. I don't know what you and your friend are doing to your keyboards but my G11 is fine after a month so far and my other Logitech keyboard has also lasted a long time too. My g11 is the second revision of the keyboard and only cost me only £25 from Staples. I believe Blitzen also has one too.

    Re: Gaming Keyboard

    'Gaming' Keyboards are stupid and useless, just get whichever is most comfortable to type with. You only have five fingers to hit a few dozen keys around the wsad area, and you've only two eyes to focus on on-screen visual cues, so keyboard displays are pointless. I find the logitech wave keyboard to be very comfortable, even after prolonged usage.

    Yeah, but i tend to find that 'gaming' KB's are better made, and nicer to type on in general. (although my opinion may be slightly warped, as my previous KB was a £2 jobbie )
