Ideazon Merc Gaming Keyboard
It's hard to argue with the Ideazon Merc Gaming Keyboard's $40 price tag. It's not as responsive as the $99 CNET Editor's Choice-winning Razer Tarantula, and it doesn't even light up like the $99 Logitech G15 or the $60 and $70 (respectively) Saitek Eclipse or Eclipse II. The separate game key cluster isn't all that great, either, since the bunched up key layout impedes accuracy. But for $40, the Merc does deliver some flexible, powerful customization software. We wouldn't recommend it for performance-oriented games, but if all you're interested in is tailoring your keyboard to your favorite titles, the Merc is worth a try.
Imagine Ideazon's Fang Gamepad attached to the side of an otherwise boring keyboard, and you have a pretty good sense of what the Merc is all about. That's actually not a bad idea in concept. Rather than forcing you to hunt and peck your way through a typical QWERTY layout, the idea of the Merc is to isolate an additional set of game keys in more user-friendly design.
