Just arrived and installed despite the fact I should be sleeping. Just goes to show you are never too old to be excited about new toys.
Well, it was a pretty easy installation. At first glance I thought the black palm rest on it wasnt removeable but after fiddling with it I found it popped right off. I do wish they could have made it look a little nicer underneathe there but I guess its okay. Just inst cool looking. lol. The overall feel of this thing is a lot heavier and it has some nice rubber matting on the bottom to prevent it from sliding around. I just played a couple of DM-Seraphim matches and its really sensitive despite the keys feeling a bit tight as if they arent broke in yet but seems great so far. A pic of the holes left by removing the palmrest. Still felt fine to play with.
A brief look at the Editor. Lots of stuff to program which I havent really fiddled with yet but the new app still does accept old profiles so you can at least observe your old settings while building a new profile. I noticed something I wasnt aware of before but the scroll wheel also has a button on it similar to your mouse wheel. Thats a nifty feature even tho I may not ever use it. Might be perfect for a less than often used shiftstate. I do really enjoy the thumb key for being able to make like hitting a space bar. I think that will be an excellent shiftstate key. I played two whole matches without realizing it was set to Space which is my suicide for UT2003. Could have been bad.....lol.
