They say that hardcore gamers have high taste when it comes to their peripherals: the mouse and the keyboard. If you think Saitek PK17U Cyborg is an interesting keyboard, you are probably right, because it is one of a kind! I guess that the Cyborg name comes from its ability to light even in the dark, to switch colors, zones and brightness level. Of course, if you like blue, you might want a different keyboard, since blue is not an option. There are few cyborg icons that will probably get you in the mood to kill some aliens in your favorite game. To go along with the icon they need a button which spoke something in a mechanical voice if pressed like “Cyborg patrol officer reporting for duty, sir…”
