Logitech G13, who has one?
I'm getting tired of my n52te(and it's crappy interface VS the old N52) and i'm starting to look elsewhere. Mainly because of the lack of buttons on the upper rows on each side of the WASD. I was never able to get myself ot use the lower set of buttons while playing FPS, they are too far and un-intuitive to use I find.

So I've looked around the and Logitech seems nice, would match my G15 well also but that's really secondary, I like the extra buttons on each side in the first 2 rows.

How is the key response? they have not been out for long yet but are they solid? Do they last?

Thanks :thumb:

I've had one for a couple months now and like it a lot. Very well built...weighs nearly as much as my entire z-board. Only issue I've had with it is the placement of the space bar/jump key. It's a little too close but I'm used to it now. I find the shape is a little easier on my hand also. I do miss the butterfly keys on the z-board a little. Coming from a z-board I would give it a 4/5 on pretty much everything.

I've got one, I was on the original demo team for the product - key response is great, very similar to that of the G15 keyboard.

I was debating whether to get the G13 or the n52te, and I ended up going for the n52te. I was skeptical of the whole keypad idea, having been used to full keyboards for PC gaming, so I figured I would only be wasting $50 as opposed to $85 if I didn't like it. It feels pretty good for games like UT2k4, but the responsiveness of the "space bar" bothers me quite a bit. Seeing this praise for the G13 makes me wonder if I made the right choice :doh:

I use the button above the d-pad on my n52te to remap all the keys.

I think I'm going to end up taking the n52te back to Canada Computers and getting the G13...

EDIT: The G13 is definitely miles ahead of the n52te in terms of build quality, layout and software. Well worth the extra monies imo.
