So I just bought a ThrustVector Afterburner Keyboard encoder for about $47 shipped today, just wondering how they compare to the KeyWiz 1.5 max and the standard 2 player I-pac?
The afterburner seams to be feature packed, so is there a trade off in performance, timing, reliability etc..?

I dont think anybody knows, so you'll be the first. Make sure you let us know if there's another contender in the encoder market :)

Yeah, I had a look on BYOAC before I posted but didn't find anything.. I had another look and still nothing (I'm sure I'm blind :D )
That other review casts a pretty good light on it so it should be sweet!
I'll let you guys know how it all goes.

My ThrustVector Afterburner just arrived an hour ago :D I'm impressed how well it's all packaged. Documentation looks good too. The unit looks really sturdy and postage was FAST!
6 days from America land to Oz and that's including the weekend.
I can't hook it up yet, as I'm now waiting on my joystick and buttons to arrive.
Final price was about $63 AUD which included shipping, and an additional 2 slide potentiometers by request for auto-fire speed adjustment :evil
