"Awesome"
5 stars"

This is one of the best gaming boards i have found, and it is now being used by the U.S. Military for their training systems so it can't be all that bad.

Very easy to come to grips with and to learn how to use. Very well laid out, everything you need is within reach from the main direction keys

Description

Designed by gamers, Zboard is the world’s first PC Gaming Keyboard. This innovative product is all you need for gaming and for every day use, making Zboard the ultimate keyboard for gamers. Zboard is comprised of 3 parts:

The Zboard Base


A Zboard Base has an auto recognition feature for any keyset you insert. There’s no need to install any additional software. It is the brain behind the brawn. Just switch Keysets & Play your favorite games. The Zboard Base comes with these standard features:

USB Hub
Your Zboard Base is equipped with 2 USB (BUS powered) connectors. This HUB supports low voltage devices (up to 100mA) such as mice, joystick or memory sticks. Now you can plug devices directly to your Zboard without the hassle of crawling down to your PC.

Hot Keys
A set of nine hot keys launch common functions such as E-Mail, Calculator and My Computer or allow you to instantly return to a pre-selected destination, such as a file, folder, program or web page.

Multimedia Controls
A set of 7 one-touch multimedia control buttons: play/pause, stop, next/previous track, volume up/down and mute.

Additional LED indicators
In addition to the standard 3 LED (Caps, Scroll and Num lock) Zboard has additional 3 LEDs to indicate Zboard enhanced functionality (Pad Lock, Bar Lock and Enable)
