ONBOARD MEMORY PROFILES
A gameboard with a brain
G13 saves your profiles onboard, so you won’t lose your settings even when you bring it to other PCs. And custom profiles are still active even if you’re not running Logitech Gaming Software.

Press any combination of keys and see each registered together. And full anti-ghosting means you never need to see a command you didn’t intend.
SOLID, STABLE DESIGN
The foundation of performance
Engineered for maximum intensity. The gameboard base contains 650 grams of stabilizing weight and sturdy support feet. G13 stays where you put it.

I've always thought about getting a gaming keypad of some sort, and this came on sale so finally got one. At first it was tough to get used to and confusing to locate the keys I wanted, but as I used it more, it started to come together. Now I can easily say I enjoy using it for gaming much more than a keyboard alone. The biggest benefit for me is the tumb buttons and joystick. Very, very handy for me!
The g-board works very nicely. It is difficult during the first week to learn however once you are used to it this g-board is much better than a keyboard (except when you need to type a message). This g-board must be modified to prevent the keys from binding! You will need to open the unit (warranty voided!) by removing 5 screws hidden under the rubber stickers. Next carefully open and with a q-tip spread some vaseline on the back of all the keys (all 4 sides of each key). Re-assemble and the g-board keys are smooth as can be. This is a very good g-board however as I say it must be lubed to work right.
Looks good and a fine replacement for a WASD type controller other than your keyboard but realistically... the placement of the keys and the palm grip design are awkward. Between this and the Nostromo, I wouldn't recommend this one on the basis that it's much more difficult to use these keys due to the design. I wouldn't recommend the Nostromo either due to a similar design. Find a better keyboard built for your style of WASD key placement and design. Keyboard still works better because you need to type anyways...
This will give your left hand a nice alternative to a keyboard. The joystick on the other hand is very uncomfortable to use and sue to the unfortunately small head its is difficult to prevent from slipping. In short, until I find a new stick that fits to replace it, I'm only using the keys. Luckily there stick is also a button giving the thumb 3 buttons to work with.
I have used the n52te, and by far this is much better. More buttons is what I liked. Mainly I got this cuz it has more buttons and also make more macros. I would recommend getting this instead of the n52te because it just does alot more.
I owned a nostromo speed pad n52 for about 3 years and switch to the G13. Awesome product.. really nice looking The led lightning on it is beautiful You can really customize the color like you want. As for the feature got a lots of button I mainly play FPS games and it really suits me. By default its come preconfigured so It can be fast to use.
