Closer Look: Timber Wolf
The Timber Wolf comes packed in a simple but eye-catching design. Apparently it wasn't over thought, but it is enough to get one's attention.
The back of the box has snippets from various reviews of the product as well as lists the features in nine different languages.
Inside you will find the keyboard flanked by two pieces of foam and an owners manual. These are all that are required for this product.
The keyboard's design is steps away from the usual enhanced standard keyboard that most other manufacturer's use. Opting to place a keypad to the right of the main key-set.
The Timber Wolf"s game pad is ergonomically designed for ease of use. The pad contains 40 keys to use for game play which correspond to keys on the keyboard and require no software to operate them. They have been placed in a circular design that should allow a player to reach them without changing hand position.
The Timber Wolf also comes equipped with two USB ports that are located on the top edge between the game pad and main keyboard. Although the keyboard itself is USB 2.0, the ports on it are only USB 1.1. I personally don't care for the location of the ports on this keyboard. With limited desk space, it could be easy to damage them in the heat of a game.
