Hardware Review

On June 25th, Managing Editor Jon Wood submitted his review of the ZBoard Keyboard and the Age of Conan specific keyset. Here is an example of what he thought:

  • I can't speak very highly of the standard keyboard attachment. Using it, I found that half the time, my shift key, space bar or various other keys simply wouldn't work. I thought at first that it may have been something that I had done.
  • This was a pretty consistent problem for the AoC keyset and on its own would be justification for a low mark. I also know what some of you are thinking.
  • Having tried the keyboard with a number of games, I can confidently recommend the gaming keyboard to pretty much anyone.
