It's very loud (sounds like an old typewriter) chunky and clunky, fast

Over the years I have found that the feel/feedback of the keys/buttons is the most important feature of a good keyboard/mouse. Practically all highly priced "gaming" imput devices are terrible in that regard. I don't even have to think about it while I type this, because I can feel what the keyboard is doing beneath my fingers.

Logitech G510 here .... 54 programmable keys on the left side, within finger reach. Works like hot damn.

Altho, I found the keyboard trader Mike linked intriguing.

Head up and keep your stick on the ice!

Take a look at gaming keyboards: The 10 Best Gaming Keyboards |

As well as a gaming mouse. Mine, Logitech G700s, has 11 programmable buttons that are used to place limit or market orders and adjust existing orders.

Has anyone done something like this in Sierrachart? How would you tie it to an individual instrument or chart window? SC supports keyboard trading shortcuts, but not specific to one window/instrument. Loses the advantage if you still need to use the mouse first to bring the correct chart/window/instrument into focus.
