A very competative keyboard, good feel, solid for the price. The trouble I had that you probably won't: a few of the weights came off the bottoms of the keys. A little super glue and we're back in business. But still!The problem I had that you will: EMU bundles some cool software with the board, but if you run into problems (inevitable since the software is more than 3 years old, and requires lots of updates from the EMU site) they don't offer support for anything other than their XBOARD controller. That's fine, but I'd really like to use Proteus and can't. And there's no support for it, according to their support info.
Alright so i got my new XBOARD probably a month ago, and out of the box i plugged it in an installed the drivers and it worked perfect...i even dropped it in the first day but no problem there. If you were looking to buy a different brand i would suggest trying this one...even if just for the wonderful keys on this baby!
