    I have the first model of this game pad got it about 4 or 3 years ago (I don’t like it)
    But one of my clan buds has a newer one and he uses it for one or two games.
    If you want to get this I would strongly recommend checking it out in a store before you buy it.
    Make sure it is a good fit for your hand and I had a problem with it being light weight so it moves around when playing

    I am using this keyboard and loving it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823161028

    I have the first model and love it. Makes gaming so easy! I would highly recommend it. Mine is about 2 1/2 years old.... and by the looks of the new one I may be in need to replace it =)

    Edit:
    Just went to the website and noticed that it is using Razer designed software... not to happy about that. I hate Razer with a passion. Their products are highly defective and the software that they write is quite buggy. I have gone through 2 mice, one head set and one sound card....ALL had problems with either the hardware, software or both. The latest was the sound card and it took a month for Razer to finally get me a new one after I had sent mine to them for RMA.

    While I can recommend Belkin N52 I cannot recommend Razer.. N52te? purchase at your own risk due to the Razer involvement.

    Youre tall, but that doesnt mean you dont have dwarf hands. :laugh:

    I own this and it is awesome...after a few mods.

    I applied a nice spiral pattern on the bottom with silicon, let it dry, and now it never moves while gaming.

    The software is 5h|t. However its not required to use the device. If you plan on using advanced macro's thats where the software really shows its ugly side.

    The key 15 (spacebar) is to low for my thumbd...so again modded it, I applied some silicon, and then added a piece of texturized rubber on top, added about 1/4inch to it. Now its within easy reach.

    So far its been great. Use it on Crysis, Command and Conquer 3:KW, COD4. Has helped a ton in Command and Conquer with macro's and much easier to reach SHIFT, ALR, CNTRL keys.

    I dont like how the rows of keys arent offset like a normal keyboard. WASD doesnt have the same feel.

    i was always in the habit of remapping to the numberpad, so was used to the keys being lined up.

    I can take some shots this weekend and post, although its nothing more then what I said. I guess the thumb mod was worth a pic.

    There aren't any age requirements for this... :)
