Steel-series make fantastic gaming products. I haven't tried their mice/keyboard, but I may go mouse when my current one loses its functionality. And my das keyboard kicks ass. :)

I don't like my headphones; those sure would make a fancy upgrade.

I have some steelseries siberian v2's for headphones. for 70$, the quality and comfort really can't be beat. The GW2 dont look like the siberian style, but I wouldn't think their quality would be anything but fantastic :)

I really, really like the merc keyboard. Having the numbers in two rows all within easy reach of your fingers on nice round keys is amazing. Probably going to pick up the merc stealth, and this:

Exactly what I wanted the razer naga to be in the first place. The four rows of numbers is nice, but in a pvp situation where reaction times are key I find it's still slower to use my thumb than it would be to use my left hand. Most likely that is because I am left handed to begin with. Either way, the hexagonal buttons on the mouse is a much better design in my opinion.

I actually disagree. I like the way the Naga is set up w/ the 4 rows. I find it easier and more efficient to use than my left hand (and I am left handed). But, the downside to all of this... is unlike your hamhands... my hands are too small to make left-handed keyboarding useful.

The key is using both simultaneously for more keypresses. Use your naga to fill in your gaps instead of a primary and secondary setup. Using ctrl, alt, and shift for additional binds I find useful too. I do think recent mmos have just went way fucking overboard with the amount of binds they expect someone to manage though. A ret paladin in cataclysm was retarded.

Right now I use Ctrl and Alt as modifiers, so I can have 36 abilities right there. I do use 'q, r, t, v' etc... Just not 1,2,3 with the left hand.

Good to know! Think I'll have to start saving for these beauties...
