    Saitek has released two new products that ought to give any first person shooter freak something to smile about. The Cyborg line which was previously limited to a gamepad, a keypad and a new gaming mouse has now been expanded to include a very slick looking keyboard. The new Cyborg Keyboard features multi-color back lighting that allows you to set your own backlighting colors and adjust brightness. You can also light commonly used gaming keys (W, S, A, D) separately. There are twelve macro keys which should be enough for most gamers. USB, audio and microphone ports are also presented in the keyboard and the wrist rest and rake angle are adjustable at both front and back. The Saitek Cyborg keyboard will cost $80 when it is available.
