never tried a gaming pad...

How is it? Does it take a lot of time to get use to it?

Well after installing the software that came with it and installing the update everything was fine for a day, then I had to uninstall everything and start from scratch. I've have it operating smooth now though and really like the feel of the gamepad. The colour options are sweet......I've been changing colours to my mood.....hehe. I also really like the RSS option.....NHL updates while gaming is awesome. I've made a Sacred 2 profile so when I play that I can just kick back with the gamepad and mouse and relax. The core temp display is very useful too. Cheers!

I loved the feel of game pads for single player games or games where I use a mike, just molds to your hand better and normally theres alot of options for macros.

cool, i have been using the numeric keypad for fps'ers. (i don't like the wasd keys) my shoulder gets sore after an hour or so and i was thinking of getting something like this just for playing games. are you gonna play any half life 2 based games with it? the g keys on my g15 don't work very well in the games i play.

I bought one and was very impressed with the quality and comfort it provided. I sold it to a buddy (impulse buy) since it didn't really do what I wanted it to do and was too much of an adjustment after I've been using a keyboard for so long. However if you are looking for one, this is a fantastic product.

Looks like a sweet little pad for gaming.

Im looking at picking one of these bad boys up because my hand is starting to ache alittle on long periods of gaming on the keyboard. Im hoping that this game pad will help for that.

cheers
