Use it when there are a dozen guys surrounding you with their crosshair on your head? You have to be a little weird to do that lol.

In Fallout/Elder Scroll games, where you won't have to worry about getting sniped in the head or getting killed in 3 shots from behind, travelling and exploring has become way way WAY less tedious, as all you have to do is move the mouse around. Still remember having to walk 30 mins to get to a landmark, that wasn't fun at all =.=
Still not buying into the hole thing, I still want to have full control all the time. If your lazy to hold a key down then I wouldn't even want to be playing games then. Just watch some TV ha.

Dude, use it. You are missing out on the biggest function on your keyboard. Just don't use it when you are in the middle of a dozen enemies. Use it to travel in comfort

In Oblivion you just press Q to keep walking forward, no need to hold it

Imma lone wolf lol. Teamwork like that is hardly present in BFBC2 anymore.

Match starts - rush to vehicles - 4/5 of the team left on foot to run across half the map :/ Hopefully, this situation changes in BF3.

I wouldn't by this keyboard just for the cruise control. I'm sure there's program somewhere on the Internet that lets you do the same on any keyboard. If having two hands on your desk is too burdensome, how about programming one of the mouse buttons to the movement key and holding that? For example, programming the middle button, or side button to press W. So if you hold it, it holds the W key.

Feel free to disagree with me I prefer to do things in the most comfortable, less tedious way possible *lazily stretches leg on HAFX when cushion leg rest is across the room*

The trick in Oblivion to spell leveling up is a ball bearing.


Hey, this is the same pic as in the OCN Mechanical Keyboard Guide but WITH my watermark!

...but there are better keyboards for FPS.... and this "great" feature can be replicated through software.

Create a hoykey to run a macro that holds W for 600 seconds until interrupted.
Once again...

Not really telling everyone to buy it just for the cruise control though, might have been the way I typed it out. :/ This keyboard is recommended because of the vast number of macros, decent back lighting, swappable num pad, volume control, ability to off some keys (Evil Windows Key) even though its Microsoft, and it also includes gaming features like Cruise Control which I actually find very very useful, though many reviewers and people don't. I can see myself using that function alot when BF3 and Skyrim comes out

PLUS it's quite a bit cheaper than the other gaming keyboard solutions on the market. Very underestimated keyboard imo.
