    Possibly the only logical successor to my trusty G15.

    Anything less would be a step backwards.

    What happened to the full keyboard in the end?

    I know they had the programmable button one for a bit, but the full sized keyboard seemed to die of death...?

    Yea and guess what they can keep it! oled screens have a very short lifespan this is probably the main reason no-one has bought this keyboard. I wish some company would make a high quality metal version of the luxeed crossover instead with better leds.

    Im using an example here, the PS Vita's main fault is it's oled screen, this technology is far from perfected, so i think theyve got to go back to the drawing boards on this one.

    I can believe that... I guess all the current implementations of OLED have been mobile phones and MP3 players- stuff where the screen is only on for a short time.

    Where as the keyboard would be on for hours at a time... probably would rinse the OLEDs.

    Thats it latency yea, static images destroy oled screens, the oled in my coolermaster sentinel mouse is nearly dead after only a couple of months.
