The keyboard features a full-size set of keys as well as volume and lighting controls, but the most compelling feature is the Command Pad. It has 9 buttons that you can map to single game actions or program to run complicated macros with one touch. Even better, the Command Pad's 2 shift buttons multiply the effective number of programmable keys to a whopping 27.
Though the Saitek PC Gamer's Keyboard looks truly attractive, its LED lighting wasn't bright enough for us to read its keys in complete or near darkness. Also, the keyboard is long and takes up lots of desk space. Still, it's great for players who want to add good looks and extra functionality to their gaming rigs.
