I also own a Fang (along with a ZBoard, using the Burning Crusade keyset) and love it. I do agree that the software (the Z Engine) is a bit clunky and slow, and has gotten clunkier and slower as I've added in new mods for different characters. (I'm an alt-aholic.) Doing the initial button set up for each character can be painful, but I've dealt with it by having a "default" that I use and add to as I go along.The only other complaint that I have is that the keys came pre-labeled. When I first bought it and was getting used to it, I admit I had to look at it while I was developing my muscle memory. So when you have a key labeled "Voice," naturally I mapped that as the push-to-talk button for Ventrilo instead of binding it to a particular ability. While I can probably now map that key to something else, and move the Vent push-to-talk key to another button, right now my instinct is to use that key as my voice chat key for all my characters. So it's not a crippling flaw in the Fang, but I just wish they hadn't labeled the keys with particular functions, even if that is the default layout.All in all, I love the Fang and recommend it to others, especially those who have ZBoards. It takes a while to get used to, but now I can honestly say I'd hate to try to play without it. While I've gotten compliments as a good player before, I've seen a marked improvement in my game (both PvE and PvP) using the Fang. Should mine ever break (probably from overuse!), I'll just steal my boyfriend's since he prefers the Nostromo. The Fang isn't for everybody, but I have to say it's probably my favorite piece of gaming equipment.
