Deck LED Backlit Keyboard @ LAN Addict
LAN Addict :: Thursday, January 20, 2005

“I really like the Deck LED Backlit Keyboard, especially while gaming. The USB interface means it’s a snap to move from one machine to another. It uses the built-in Windows drivers, so there’s no software to install. It gets its power through the USB connection, so there’s no power cable to worry about. It’s not perfect, but it’s damn close!”

Saitek Cyborg Evo Wireless Joystick

“For as much time as I spend playing games on my PC, I must admit that I could not easily bring to mind many more than 2 or 3 major PC input controller manufacturers. Give it a try, it’s not as easy as it sounds. Of course you will think of Logitech and Microsoft and then there is Belkin. Unknowingly I had forgotten about Saitek. And it’s not that I didn’t know them, more like I couldn’t remember them. According to their corporate website, Saitek was started in 1979 and entered the gaming input device market in 1993 with their first real success being in the electronic chess game market…not something most of us are familiar with. However, I do recall through a haze of 1980’s Transformer cartoons and G.I. Joe public service announcements a small unassuming game box that ruthlessly and systematically eradicated would-be chess masters. That was my first introduction to Saitek, I just didn’t know it.”
