Well I got my Deck keyboard in yesterday and wrote a quick impressions post about it in another forum, so I thought I would share it here:
You know, after spending $150 it would be easy for most people to come back here & say what a terrific product they got just because they were trying to make themselves believe it. Luckily, I am not one of those people. The Deck 82 key is an amazing little piece of hardware and it is so undeniably worth every penny for the discerning peripheral customer looking for the best in simplicity, design, and reliability,
When the package arrived I could not believe how small it was. I opened the box to find it was not even as big as that! The keyboard is very small and fits perfectly in my lap, as I like to work Cooller style with my k/b in my lap. There are obvious advantages and a little drawback in that a few of the keys are moved around and you will have to get used to the new layout. If this is too big a problem you could opt for the full sized Legend with the standard key layout. As for me I don't mind it all because I prefer the smaller keyboard for a number of reasons.
The feel and the look of the keyboard are second to none. It is quite simply the best typing keyboard I have ever used, by a longshot. It looks amazing with the led's all lit up as they also light up the circuitry on the pcb which runs all under the keys of the keyboard. Replacing the keys is simple and the replacement keys are perfect for any WASD layout game, but especially useful for FPS's. The replacement keys are pimp and include a sniper scope, skull & crossbones, and a hand flipping the bird...lol
All in all I am super happy with the purchase unlike most of my "overpriced" hardware purchases, and the one thing that will make it completely worth the money is if it lasts the 10-20+ years that it is supposed to last. If it is still around a couple years from now I will buy one for every computer I have, including the one at work.
I would recommend this board to any friend of mine, and recommend it to any of you too.
And no I'm not a viral marketer...lol

I have a nostromo n52 which seems limited to 32bit drivers. What about 64 bit drivers? I can't seem to find the beta drivers everyone talks about in other forums. Belkin does not seem very supportive in that area. I'm about to give up on the belkin stuff.
What are other devices are out there that can use 64bit drivers ?
Ergonomic keyboard. Full size. No reason to get a fancy one unless you just want to look at it.
I have the MERC. It's a cool keyboard. I think it's supposed to auto-detect the game you are playing and load the appropriate profile but mine doesn't do that. Maybe I don't have something configured properly. Also I haven't been able to figure out how to get custom key macros to work.
Saitek eclipse is a good keyboard
The MERC is on on sale at Gogamer for $26.
