    I've pretty much over used my Nostromo N52 & some of the buttons on it are just giving up the ghost so considering the next & best for a replacement. I found the Orbweaver and because it has another row of keys it's perfect in that respect and the Mechanical keys seem very nice. I played with the similar key types on another keyboard while looking around at the store. Anyway ..... wondering if anyone actually has one and uses it for UO?

    Yea I agree.. but it's $100 through Amazon of course with Free Shipping for Prime members..... plus the wife asked the question "What you want for X-mas lol & I was just googlling around for a Nostromo replacement when she did that) I really do like the mechanical keys though & honestly that extra row of buttons will find good use for me especially when I play a Myst / Weaver mage heh. I'm not even considering how nice it might be for BF4 etc ( I try to stay away bc I know eventually I'll just stop playing it for UO again lol)

    Looks interesting but no I use the Logitech G13...... You might want to check it out.. 22 programmable keys, plus 4 different key combo settings.... plus..... customizable colors, plus you can program the other 2 buttons and the analog stick to 5 more buttons.... giving a grand total of 29 keys x 4..... I've never switched between the 4 just use the one but Love the 29 keys..... and in the EC it's actually set to using the F keys, the number keys and the number pad keys and it's a base template I just set up all I have to do is drag and drop macro's into the key slots... Takes me about 15 min to set up a new character...

    I've had it for probably 5 years now and it's awesome!

    Yea that was actually the alternative that I was considering. I just like the fact that the orbweaver is smaller and the mechanical keys are quite nice. The price is quite a bit more though even on Amazon. I'm also partial to the more familiar layout bc I'd be replacing a Nostromo N52 with it. I'm goign to have to look up the size difference between G13 & the Orbweaver again bc my desk size is pretty tight.

    Yeah.. I forgot about the Naga. I have a logitech G500 which is fairly new.. ( I got it for flying Heli's in BF3 bc of the 5700 DPI heh) I've been using a Nostromo for MOST of my UO career so I'm not inclined to switch it up to the keyboard at this point. We will see but I'm going to put the Orbweaver out there for an Xmas gift & see what happens heh.
