Ideazon Zboard


PC gamers know the frustration of having to memorize a dozen hotkeys or trying to use an odd-shaped keyboard-replacement controller. The Ideazon Zboard offers game-specialized overlay boards that fit onto a generic keyboard casing. Each overlay is...

Ideazon Zboard Gaming Keyboard


There are many companies that manufacture and market gaming peripherals, and I'm sure many of you have already heard of Ideazon. They are not the biggest company around, but they manufacture some of the most innovative and unique products that we've...

Interchangeable keysets for gaming, office, and specific applications (stay tuned for more information) ; Easy to program profiles and macros ; Keysets can be changed on-the-fly ; Excellent gaming keyboard with great functionality

Key action is a little rough - and noisy ; Non-Standard QWERTY layout on gaming keyset

Although the Ideazon Zboard may not be for everyone, it has some features that make it an excellent gaming keyboard. For general office use, the keys are a little stiffer that many other keyboards on the market and the action isn't as clean. The...

Ideazon Zboard Review


I have seen many gaming devices come and go, over the years that promise gamers easy game play and quick weapon selections. One of the best gaming devices that I have seen was a device that looked like a mini keyboard with about 20 keys on it. The...

Interchangeable Interfaces ; Customizable Keys ; User Friendly ; Hot swappable

A couple of my keys would stick every so often ; Interfaces are pricey ; Limited Interface Availability

The Zboard is a very cool product, but it did fall short of receiving our OCC Recommend Award for a few reasons. First off, while I was using the Zboard over the past few days I have noticed that some of the keys will stick. The enter button on the...

Ideazon Zboard MERC Review


Expanding upon their previous experience, Ideazon has rolled out a new keyboard, the Zboard MERC. Foregoing swappable keysets, the MERC takes the best...

The Zboard MERC is an excellent innovation in gaming-specific keyboard design. The layout and butterfly keys expand upon and improve the original Zboard's design. While the MERC forgoes the cool limited edition game-specific Zboard keysets, it is a far...

Ideazon Zboard Gaming Keyboard


With all the attention given to high end mouse pads.. excuse me, gaming surfaces, and laser mice capable of 1600dpi it only was a matter of time until a true gaming keyboard hit the market. High performance mice and mouse pads all market themselves as...

Ease of set up ; Swappable keysets ; Software key binding utility ; Variety of gaming and productivity keysets available ; The best way to pillage pixels in the 21st century ; Much more comfortable gameplay than a standard keyboard

Typing normal text commands on gaming keyset can feel disorienting

While I didn't become a First Sergeant while testing the Zboard under fire, something odd did strike me. In use, there wasn't a pause for me to tell myself "you know, I'm fragging one helluva lot more here" but there was a moment or two of feeling my...

Ideazon Zboard


If you're a hardcore PC gamer, there's a high chance that you've thought about buying some gamer-related human input devices, keyboard, mice, gamepads and joysticks most likely

The base package gives you the standard board and the Crossfire, but Ideazon sell plenty of others for various games and applications. However, they don't seem to be readily available anywhere other than the US and Canada, which lessens the Zboard's...
