I own 5 of the fangs, no foolies. Just incase for some dumb reason they stop selling them. There is NO other pc gaming anything that even comes close to the fang. I've raved about it forever now, even forced some friends to buy one. They are a MUST have for soo many pc games, one of the big ones is wow. I've played a hunter as my main for 4 years, and as any hunter knows you have a ton of abilitys. With this thing you never and I mean Never have to use your mouse for anything other than moving. It makes any ability you have into a super fast response time, seconds before anyone could click, and still faster than any keyboard setup that's possible. Makes an insane difference in pvp/fps and basically any other online multiplayer game!To the part about the "hard to setup" It's actually very simple once you figure out u just need to update the software. A whole big "custom layout" thing opens and bam, you'll have it set up in 5 mins max. Then it recognizes different games. So say you like your wow with the alt/tab/cntl keys in tact for various reasons. But then you want them as something else on another game. The software changes your keybindings you make based on the game your playing instantly and automatically.tldr version: Best pc gamers... anything... ever! The must-have of must-haves.

ehh to each their own, good sir :)I'm glad you're happy with it, however my experiences in first person shooters and wow after being a WASD gamer is I just couldn't switch to it...would just cause general pain in the asses/wasn't more efficient in some way. I have 72 key combinations easily accessable not moving with WASD, so it's not like it adds anything.(ctrl+shift+alt+anything from q-Y, a-H, and z-N, 1-6)Sometimes a key would lock and you'd have to switch modes...also the keyboard seemed to have problems with 3 inputs at once (such as ctrl + shift + keys).Some people can certainly get used to it though.

The Ergodex, www.ergodex.com does all this and more. Up to 50 buttons, placed WHEREVER feels good for you, and the best binding/macro software I have ever used. This includes context(program) sensitive function programming as well.The drawback is the limited quantity available (you will likely have to shop around online to find one) and the relative expense. If you get it with all 50 buttons and shipping, you are looking at $170 or so.The keys push very nicely.
