Designed by gamers, Zboard is the world's first PC Gaming Keyboard. This innovative product is all you need for gaming and for every day use, making Zboard the ultimate keyboard for gamers.

Many of today's computers play a dual role, on the one hand they have to be hard working business tools and on the other, capable games centres. The trouble is, most computers only come with a standard keyboard, which makes gaming extremely difficult. The Zboard is the only keyboard that gives you 'hot swappable' key sets. One minute you have a professional Multimedia office keyboard, the next, a decent gaming platform to make use of all that power.

Each key set can be changed in under 5 seconds without the need to turn off or re-boot the computer. Simply unclip the keyset, lift out and replace with the other key set it's as simple as that.

I bought this as I started to play World of Warcraft.

The Zboard concept is brilliant and takes keyboard overlays into the 21st century.

The extra keysets you can buy are perfect for the computer games they're made for. My only complaints are;
too few limited keysets available, this is a great product and they should push it much more.
The keysets themsleves are not flat and require storage, would be nice if they sold a way of storing them.

Updating the software is very easy.
I have only come across one problem, which they are working on. when you install this, take note of which USB port you use, it seems that it embeds in this port alone.

overall a good keyboard for typing and a great accessory for gamers.

This is such a wonderful peace of equipment so easy to set up.
The only thing i found with it is its complicated to get used to.
But once you get into using it definately improves your game play in FPS games.

 Good for Looks

The looks are very nice, and the different interchangble keysets is cool but you might aswell just get a normal keyboard instead of paying 40 quid for one, it is not worth it.

 Ideal for FPS's

Been using this board for over a year now. My old keyboard did not support simultaneous input for ducking diving and shooting at the same time. This chipset supports all the movements you will use in a typical online shooter game such as Unreal 3 and it certainly improves your frag rate exponentially! Good bit of kit. For touch typing get another softer keyboard such as HP for a tenner.
