Saitek Eclipse III

Hello,

I recently ordered the Saitek Eclipse III despite mixed reviews I've found. It's essentially a revamped Saitek Cyborg (without the lame silver buttons). I wanted this because it's the one of the most up to date, blue blacklit keyboards.

My question is that I haven't been able to find drivers for this keyboard on their website. From looking at it compared with the cyborg, it looks like an identical layout. Will I be able to just install the Cyborg drivers on the Eclipse III with no hiccups? Also, I've read the the hot keys on the ends are not reprogrammable on the Eclipse, but are on the Cyrborg. If I can install the drivers will this keyboard take macros on the hotkeys?

Wondering if anyone has done this, ran into it, has insight on it...

Thanks in advance : )

the drivers auto install. Its a standard keyboard. I use Win7, and it says in devices "Saitek Eclipse Keyboard" and shows a pic of it.

Have you tried installing the cyborg drivers to reprogram the hotkeys?

Negative, since it never asked for drivers, it just had them after windows installed. I doubt you can do what you are talking about, since they have different Device Ids.
