The OCZ Sabre features an ergonomic design and construction with keys lasting over 5 million cycles (for keys without screen) and will remain comfortable even through prolonged usage with its clean layout, tilted design, and superior tactile feedback, according to OCZ.
The nine dynamic OLED (organic light emitting diode) user-programmable hotkeys help manage time and efficiency while surfing the web, gaming, emailing, and CAD applications or any avenue the user sees fit. The unique OLED keys can convert any digital image or text into distinctive icons, reminding the user of the personalized shortcut. The keyboard is equipped with 128MB of internal storage and is compatible with USB 2.0 bus.
