    Bumper buttons?



    Send me one and i will try these "bumper buttons". I don't know how it will compare to the smooth clickyness ofm y logitech. And it lived to tell the tale of a glass of red wine and then the bath tub.

    Reclusa sounds a lot like recluse, maybe they're trying to give us a hint :).

    Damn, I just bought a G15 yesterday too and I really kind of like the looks of this better(plus have learned the LCD is pretty useless and more of just a novelty like the Wii controller).

    I think those bumper buttons are like the shoulder buttons on the snes control, playstation series controllers, xbox 360 controllers, etc.

    Looks like crap. Way too much wasted space on the top.

    AHAHAHAHAHHA Nice try Microsoft, but no. Seriously? What the hell is that? Just....give up. Stick to what you're good at. Make operating systems. (And you're not even very good at that either).

    1.) The keyboard is designed and made by Razer, Microsoft just sticks it's name on it.
    2.) Microsoft's mice and keyboards are very popular, especially the Intellimouse series.
    3.) They are the most used OS because they are the best, they do a damn fine job of making OSes. In fact their OS is the ONLY OS that allows me to do everything I want to do.
