    I used to do something similar with Logitech G15 keyboard LCD.... once I noticed it stopped working, and realised I never actually looked at it.

    Seems that even PR struggles to justify the usefulness of this product.

    So it costs as much as a brand spanking new Acer free IPS monitor (and that ain't even the cheapest one)?

    lol

    Just get a 2nd monitor, much more versatile.

    Always enjoyed having a screen on a keyboard both on my G15 and the G510 I had later, so much that I cut the G15 to bits and nodded the screen and I'm still using it now.

    Got mildly excited by this then noticed its just a proxy little screen and the price tag is ludicrous.

    As Anfield says got dual monitor far more for your money.

    I loved the G15, I used the screen in WoW and battlefield games a lot to monitor various ingame stats. I was sad when it broke and the support kind of dropped completly.

    How is this a "heads up display" if you have to look down to see it?

    very much g15 vibes from this. i was gonna mount an old windows or android tablet on a lamp arm bolted to my desk anyway - very easy using a windows tablet as a 2nd display wirelessly.

    quick google shows there are remote system monitor apps for phones, everyone has a spare smartphone or ten lying around in a drawer so why not use that instead of forking out £90 for a far less useful device that doesn't even do much without combining it with an expensive keyboard ?

    Honestly, if I needed a programmable hotkey pad, I'd just cough up the extra £50 for a Stream Deck instead of half-arsing it with this effort.

    I have a Logitech G19, combined with Aida64 it's a great bit of kit.
