Ideazon, developer of the Zboard gaming keyboard, has a new entry in the market. The MERC is what they claim to be their premium hybrid keyboard. Like many of the gaming keyboards that have been around, it has the programmable keys fixed on the left hand side of the keyboard. There are 34 gaming-specific keys — including 3 thumb keys and 11 weapon-specific keys.
Ideazon claims that the 11 degree tilt of the keypad is ideal for gaming. They also offer Phantom-keys elimination capabilities that deliver up to 7 simultaneous keystrokes. And rather than go through a lot of work setting it up, Ideazon offers predefined MOD files for 84 of the top gaming titles, with more being added as they are required. The keys are customizable on their own, if you so choose.
Has somewhat of a “been there, seen that” feel to it, but at only $39.99, it is a low cost way to see if ths type of keyboard can increase your gaming satisfaction and accuracy.
