On paper, the Saitek Cyborg looks like an amazing gaming keyboard. With the selective back-lighting, the touch-panel and much more, how could you go wrong? Unfortunately, during my testing, the keyboard showed quite a few problems and weaknesses that...

Nakon nedavno testiranog miša iz serije Cyborg kompanije Saitek, testirali smo i tastaturu koja nosi istu oznaku. Saitek Cyborg tastatura namijenjena je igračima, te je kao i spomenuti miš, karakteriše nesvakidašnji dizajn, a...
