    I admit, I like to have a good keyboard. In October 2009, I shelled out damn near $200 for my Logitech G19. It's a fine keyboard, except for one problem:

    It uses rubber domes.

    That are prone to tearing.

    Needless to say, all was fine and happy in Logitech land, until, about a year later (Of course, right after the warranty ran out), the spacebar got mushy, and really didn't provide any sort of tactile feedback. Upon taking it apart (all 16 screws holding it ...
  2. HAWKEN: Why you should be preparing for this game if you love Mechs right damn now.
