    If you dream of buying a keyboard with OLED keys, but you don't have a thousand dollars to spend on a keyboard, your dream may finally become true. OCZ Technology is now shipping its own Sabre OLED gaming keyboard for the price equivalent of $135, which immediately makes it number one choice in OLED peripherals. ZipZoomfly is now taking orders here. For that money, OCZ gives you a pretty decent gaming keyboard, with nine fully customizable OLED keys, 103 super tactile low-noise keys, software macro configurator, 128 MB of onboard flash memory, blue LED side backlight, and a USB 2.0 interface. Full specs of the OCZ Sabre OLED keyboard are listed here.

    Who cares, I've never used the G keys on my G15 rev 2, but I love it every day, plus people look at it every time they see it. (big smile)

    I never owned anything more than a simple multimedia keyboard, or a Macpro one. Please enlighten a poor soul what does it do with the 128 flash mb onboard? Thank you

    it will probably have something to do with storing profiles on the keyboard... (for the icons on the oled keys)

    I wonder how this will compare to the Optimus Maximus keyboard by Art Lebedev

    I know that the two biggest issues with the Optimus Maximus was the price and how hard it was to push the keys. It made typing on it a non practical thing which is a shame seeing how the damn thing costs 1500 bucks! :eek:
