[Edit December 2013]
I still own my original model of this product and it is still working flawlessly. The gaming software has undergone a few updates, all of which have added some nice functionality. This has been a reliable and durable product over the years and I am still very happy with it.
[End update]

This review is somewhat lengthy, but I try to cover all the bases on this device.

Overall Impression: Very nice piece of hardware, worth the money.

Ok, let's get started.
Physical Properties: The pad itself is of decent size for someone with average to slightly-larger-than average hands. I have long fingers and still felt very comfortable on this device. The keys press easily and are in a comfortable layout. The joystick also moves easily with my thumb. However, the joystick has a "click" attached to it when you press it down which is somewhat difficult to activate while keeping the stick still. It's definitely a hard press.

There is a non-slip surface on the bottom to keep the unit in place which works perfectly, as well as a comfortable semi-nonslip on the wrist/palm rest.

The LCD is clear and brightly illuminated with customizable lighting. There is also an on/off button for the backlight built onto the unit so you don't have to play with lights on all the time. The backlight for the LCD also backlights the buttons, which means that they follow the same customizable functionality.

The LCD also displays various, customizable, information based upon applications you have running on your system. It has support for all the mainstream media players to display song information, as well as RSS information, email, etc. It also has the capability to display in-game information, but the game itself must support this.

I designed this review as a sort of encyclopedic critique of the each criticism I've found in the reviews here on Amazon and elsewhere. To prove my nerdiness conclusively, I've indexed my responses to each criticism so you don't have to read the whole thing. You can just pick out the issues that concern you and get my scoop on them.

1: Comfort
2: Large/Small hand friendliness
3: Keys Hard to Reach
4: WASD Keys Unmarked
5: Keys Hard to Press
6: Thumbstick Hard to Press
7: Thumbstick "loose" Feeling
8: Thumbstick not Analog
9: Thorny Thumbstick
10: Weak Game-recognition
11: Installation/Stability Issues
12: No In-game Profile-switching
13: LCD Weaknesses
14: Only One Brightness Level
15: Short Cord
16: Learning Curve
17: Size

1) Comfort
First thing I hear a lot about is ergonomics. People say the joystick is in a "cramped" or "alien" position, and act like your thumb is going to snap off after five minutes of play time. They have no leg to stand on as far as I'm concerned. True, your thumb will not be resting on the side like a mouse, but this isn't a mouse, and it's not the N52, and yet, somehow, it feels perfectly comfortable to me.

2) Large/Small Hands
Alongside ergonomic complaints I've read a number of people saying the G13 "isn't made for large hands" or "isn't made for small hands." Evidently it was only made for medium-sized hands. I have huge hands, and I consider that my main advantage when using this board. Small hands I can see being a handicap, but I don't know for sure. If anything, this was made for big hands.

UPDATE: If this has really been discontinued - DON'T WAIT, order one TODAY! If I have money left over after Christmas I'll get a second one for a back up.

As I gather more and more flight gear (yoke, throttles, instrument panels, etc.) I still find a need for a keyboard.

But a regular, or modified, keyboard takes so much attention away from operating even a simple airplane.

I've passed over the G13 for quite some time because it was for "shoot 'em up" games. That was a big mistake!

This is cheaper, and more useful, than anything short of a cockpit panel.

Basically you can assign any of the keys on the G13 to any key used by FSX (or any other flight sim that takes keyboard input). That's so great, ho hum. But the real benefits come when you start using the software to assign key combinations or macros (so far no real programming required that I can see). BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!!! For $19.95 you also get a pretty good potato peeler - OOOPS, wrong product.

There is even greater power with the use of HIDMacros (a free program), that lets you assign commands not available to simple keystrokes. FSUIPC (payware) works with the G13 and can do the same thing, but costs money (duh). The software that comes with it looks to be quite useful, so most may only need that. All together you'll have a great deal of control over any aircraft you choose to fly.

Some comments:
1 - The "joy stick on the right side is VERY VERY easy to use. I saw a YouTube video where some idiot was showing how difficult and awkward it was to use. Idiot. On the other hand, it can be used as a button by pressing straight down on it. I can see how you might inadvertently move it around as you press down. Just pretend that it isn't a button.
