I have been looking at gaming keypads for quite a long time. I finally broke down and ordered the Logitech G13. It should be here in a week or so. (I went for free shipping).
What is amazing to me is how different I use my keyboard with STO. I have tried using it in the same fashion as Ops and Con used their consoles. It was just lacking some buttons or positioning of the buttons.
I think the G13 in tandem with my keyboard will bring me one step closer to a Star Trek console!
What I am really waiting for is for gaming keyboards that don't use keys. They will be glass, touchscreen boards for which players can load/create game profiles that work for them.
I am thinking if STO starts taking off with players that it would be feasible for someone to develop and market the STO programmable console. Now that WoW is hugegantic they are marketing every little bit and bob you can imagine!
