You can also save this custom definition file, which you can reload later, or transfer to another machine.

More appropriate for a geek but useable by anyone.

I recently bought one of these, and it's actually my 2nd one, so I can leave one at home and one at work. Yes, I feel that this device is that crucial to my productivity.

I use one of these at my current job as a researcher to process text, flip through different websites, and to automate repetitive data tasks. It's actually quite simple to get started with the basics, and while the learning curve definitely gets steeper for the more advanced functions, you will be richly rewarded for your efforts. The fact that I can copy all of the text from one website, switch over to MS Word, paste it in, trigger a text cleanup macro, recopy, flip to another browser window, paste it in, and throw around all the bits of data where they belong (Tab and Copy-Paste), ALL AT THE PRESS OF A BUTTON, is absolutely phenomenal. I used this at a previous job as a teacher to help with grading multiple choice tests LIGHTNING fast (A, B, C, D, E, and Skip - brilliant).

To begin basic programming, simply open the loading program, click on the button you want to program for, and begin entering in keystroke sequence you want that button to activate. Most keys on the keyboard will work just fine, and for special keys you can click on the virtual keyboard that appears on the screen. To do another button, simply click on another button in the diagram, and repeat the process. Once you are done, hit the download button, wait (this usually takes about 5 seconds), and your keypad is flash-programmed. You can also save this custom definition file, which you can reload later, or transfer to another machine. That said, the best part about this keyboard is that once the keypad is programmed, you can unplug it and move it from machine to machine, WITHOUT any special software needed.

When coupled with good macro software, like AutoHotKey (free), I have been able to create macros for certain tasks that take several mouse gestures and key presses. It really is great when things that used to take 10-15 seconds of futzing around can be accomplished with a single key stroke. I've only had this for a week, but can already feel more productive. Another thing... if you think about a typical action that takes, say, ten mouseclicks or keystrokes... that's ten opportunities for you to get distracted and wander off and do something else. If you can automate that all down to one key, then you won't lose your train of thought.

This is an awesome product. I am a work-at-home mom that has a data entry home job. I find I type the same things over and over again. I started a spreadsheet that I could just copy and paste these items from and then I stumbled across this keypad. AWESOME! I am almost three times more productive with this without any added effort. I did not bother with the labels. I cut up postit pads and wrote on those then stuck them under the plastic. Might not be pretty, but it is functional and works for me-I can change them easy too just by putting a new postit note on it. I like that the keypad retains the functions (meaning you can have the program that sets the keys on one computer, set the keys, then disconnect it and use it on any computer in the house). A downside is that not all the keys seem to be the same height. Some are slightly higher/lower than others. This can be annoying to some, but I think it actually helps me to remember which key I am on. I tried to see if I had the keys in wrong, but nope. It does appear that this problem is mainly when I am using a double key so maybe the company wants them to be offset. The second downside is that it is PS2 and has an additional PS2 plug and then converts to USB. I think I would have rather just had a USB plug. On a side note, I can't seem to get my extra PS2 plug to work. I have plugged other keyboards and mouses into it and it does not seem to work so that might be the reason I don't find that I need the extra attachment that just gets in the way. P.S. I use a mouse with my right hand and this with my left hand most of the time. Due to this keypad I am finding I don't use the keyboard very much at all (when I am doing my job). I am not sure why others would use it though, but I like what I use it for.

I bought this product a while ago and now I can't live without it!
It has a few downsides though:
- It is for American keyboards only (I'm from Denmark) which makes it a little harder to work with.
- It will only record keystrokes, so there is no possibility to using scripts or the mouse for that sake.

Even though it doesn't do many magic things, one can really get some work done faster with this keypad and a little creativity ;)

This is what I was looking for. Paired with the AutoHotKey freeware, it can perfectly automate repetitive "tasks".

The software and the manual are not so user-friendly but quality help can be obtained on the official forum and examples can be found on it.

Recommended for shortcuts addicts !

I bought this to use on my linux box. It is pretty slick. I have the first 4 keys switch between my virtual desktops, 2nd row keys move windows between the desktops, and then various scripts & macros on the other keys. If you're on the shell and find yourself repeating the same command over and over, this thing is a sanity-saver.

The only drawback is that you need to program the thing in Windows. This requires me to boot up a virtual box image of Windows. It's not as bad as it sounds, as you only really need to do this when you want to change the keys.
