Barry's Rigs 'n Reviews has just posted a review of the "Zboard Gaming Keyboard" for DOOM 3. The D3 keyset that comes with it has its own unique key mappings; in particular, you can activate any weapon, the console, get back to the main menu etc at a single key press which is indeed very handy.
This keyboard costs $39 and each additional keyset around $19. Besides, it also comes with a standard keyset making it suitable for handling more traditional tasks such as text processing.
It does look nice but if you are left-handed, you won't find it that great.
[quote]I particularly liked the enlarged dedicated gaming keys for moving and jumping, and the fact that thereâ€™s a pre-mapped key to pull down the DOOM3 console with one quick tap without having to modify shortcuts or config files. Theyâ€™ve even thrown in two keys that will take your right to the id Software and Official DOOM 3 websites (OK, so Iâ€™m getting lazy in my old age).[/quote]
