What is your opinion of PC gaming on a standard keyboard? If you're like many gamers that go running to a console to have a more ergonomic control system, perhaps you'd like to consider a more ergonomic system for playing games on the PC? I present to you the Cyborg Command Unit from Saitek. This is an inexpensive all-in-one controller, providing you with your standard gaming keys, as well as more programmable keys than you would possibly need.

I had some difficulty removing the inner packaging without ripping the box, but it may have just been my excitement. It eventually came loose and slid right out.
