Looking for a good new keyboard to use while fragging your buddies on Crysis? Got about ninety bucks? Then check this badass out. With 6 “G Keys” on 3 different profiles you can set up to 18 different macros to quickly toggle between weapons, preform common tasks, open different applications, or send a specified command to the active window. The LCD screen on the top of the keyboard also really comes in handy, you can use it to view the current time and date, check your CPU and RAM usage, or start a countdown timer. With different miniapps available on the internet you can even make your G15 “dance” to the music playing in Winamp. Another great feature about the G15 is the “game mode”. At the top of the keyboard to the left of the LCD you will see a switch, when that switch is activated, it will render the windows keys inoperable so you won’t have to worry about accidentally pressing it and minimizing your game when you try to duck from an oncoming projectile. The only thing I can find wrong about the keyboard is that the older G15 from 2006 actually has more “G Keys” and if you use a lot of macros, you should try to find youself that one instead of the newer release. Overall, I give this keyboard a 9/10. if you got $74.99 to spend, I highly recommend picking this one up!

You’ll also find 2 USB 1.1 ports on the back of the keyboard (perfect for connecting your G9 to )

I’ve been using this monitor for about 6 months now and I have to say, I LOVE it! The picture quality is great on both the DVI and VGA stream. Perfect 1920×1200 resolution, no dead pixels, It’s very hard to find anything bad to say about this monitor. I use its DVI output for my PC and the VGA for Xbox 360 and no tearing whatsoever. The ONLY, ONLY thing I could say bad about this monitor would have to be the hinge that allows you to turn the monitor up or down has made the screen of the monitor drop all the way down on the hinge and I had to move it back up, not a big problem. I was debating between this and the Samsung Syncmaster 245BW and after watching a couple videos (this, and this not to mention the countless reviews) that gave me the impression I was going to have to send the Shitsung back after a couple weeks, I went with the next best option, LG. I would recommend if anyone is looking for a monitor to buy an LG, I’ve used HP monitors, Dell, and Samsung and I have to say that I do prefer LG to any of them.
