to long to use

Summary: A few points of interest- the keyboard is very long and the angle of the gamepad is at such a radius that my hand/arm fatigues very quickly- the other option is to move the entire keyboard further right but that obstructs my mouse use. I ended up turning the keyboard about 45 degrees to get it to work but I ended up going back to my old keyboard.
Typing on this is SUPER annoying - I don't reccomend

Summary: Cons: My main complaint is that the number pad doubles as the delete, home, end, page up, & page down buttons. If num lock is on, you can't use any of those buttons. I tend to use the delete button as often as I use the numbers, but I'm having to learn to either use the top number buttons or to turn on num lock, then turn it back off right away.
Summary: It's really too bad, this keyboard has a great feel and I love the gaming keys. The LEDs are nice the colors and levels are cool, but this thing just doesn't work. This is my 3rd one currently the first one would randomly stop picking up strokes as I typed and the lights would flicker, also the num lock button doesn't work unless you turn it off and turn it back on every time you want to use the number pad.
Summary: Although the Zengine software is advertised by [...] as working for Window 7 64-bit, it is quite buggy. The options to save and rename custom layouts didn't work. In fact, any function that required opening up a dialogue window (importing/exporting/saving/renaming/browsing) does not work with the standard Zengine software.
