I have an N52 laying around somewhere but it was way too small for my hand. Also there aren't enough keys for it to really take the place of a keyboard IMO.

A good keyboard that uses low profile (laptop style) keys is far better for gaming in my opinion.

I cant compare them directly as I only have a wireless official one (no pc dongle)

I could turn on my 360 I guess...


The MadKatz doesn't have the nipples on the sticks ,I dont like those, I know where up/down/left/right is already!!!

I have a 360 wired controller, which also works on the 360. Too bad it's white (heh Meth).
