For someone who uses a keyboard 10+ hours a day, having a good one is vital. I've used many in my life, but so far the Saitek Eclipse is definitely the best.
The packaging the board comes in looks great, so immediately you already know this keyboard is going to be excellent.
The main draw, of course, is the neon blue glow behind the keys. It works like a charm, allowing you to easily see every key on the board no matter what the light is like. This is a huge plus for the gamers, not to mention those of us who are up late all the time doing lots of reports and essays.

I will first clarify my position. I never saw Firefly, I have had fleeting glances at Buffy/Angel and they were good enough but I'd never call myself a fan. A few friends of mine kept going on about this new film Serenity based on a cancelled show called Firefly.

I have never in my life played such a big ridden game. It looks awful, it plays awful, and simply isn't anywhere near as good as Football Manager 2005.
Your entire squad will be inelegible for Europe, most of the goals are own goals, teams don't qualify for the right competitions, wins are shown as draws and vice versa, and many more. How can this be considered good?
The fact people are being asked to pay money for this without even being able to try a demo first shows Eidos' strategy: they know the game is awful yet want people to PAY before finding that out.
Do yourself a favour, do NOT buy this game. Spend the money on the vastly superior Football Manager 2005.
