Once you get the box open the first thing that catches your eye is the plastic moulded surround that is shaped perfectly to match the Game Pad so it isn’t going to bounce around in shipping or when carrying around. As you can see in the picture above the keyboard is wrapped in a plastic sleeve for added protection as well. Also printed on the plastic sleeve is a child warning sticker for any of you with little ones running around or be it you’re a little one yourself, its not a mask :P
Once fully out of the box you can see how small this Game Pad/Keyboard really is. Wolf claw have taken there one of a kind gaming keyboards to another level and have produced this little monster and have managed to squeeze in very button you could think of wanting into this small space which is ingenious. The colour of the Devour is a dark red which is totally different again from any Game pad/Keyboard I’ve seen and with the contrasting black keys it just looks fantastic. Wolf Claw have rapped around the Game Pad a silver plastic edge to match the silver Esc Key, V+ and V- which really makes them stand out.
Wolf Claw has provided a user manual booklet which is full of information on the device and is well worth reading.
The Devour is very well made and feels really solid and quite light when holding it in your hand, which is great for transportation and with its USB connection you can literally take it where ever you go. Wolf claw and PD scientific have designed the Device so that your hand glides over every unique gaming key with ease. Everything is right there with just one movement.
All the buttons have a really well made feel to them that actually feel like they will last you for quite some time and with there 10 million key press life span on them you can really tell that they will last you thumping those keys
On the underneath of the device is a wolf paw print logo and as you can see above the Wolf claw has two feet for the option of setting the Game Pad up at a tilt and has 4 rubber feet and a rubber strip at the base to insure it isn’t going to move under the pressure when you are gaming. The only thing missing from the back area which the Wolf Claw Type II had is the Name Tag space which you customise with your name or what ever takes your fancy. I like the little touches Wolf Claw has added such as the indented wolf pad as pictured above.
Now this is where it all happens. As mentioned earlier I have a Wolf Claw which I use all the time for gaming and this Devour is the next generation to the game keyboard. As you can see the Devour Game Pad area is a lot bigger then the Wolf Claw Type II and that’s because they have fitted a lot more in like the F keys which line up in a semi-circle format for that added stylish look. But you can’t take the cool and stylish looks the Devour has if you compare it to the Type II, it really stands out from the crowd and is totally functional in every way.
As you can see there are 55 different shaped keys and these have been designed for fast and precise movements with just one hand. And not forgetting comfort, your hand really sits relaxed on the Devour because everything is within a finger reach.
Taking a closer look you can really see that PD scientific and Wolf claw have taken there ideas from there other products and gone one better with this must have piece of kit. The ‘Vertical space bar’ is a unique to the WolfClaw devices which lets you react faster and more accurately use your thumb, it is Also in a relaxed position through out your whole gaming time so less ache on the thumb. As you can see pictured above the Devour has it all, you are not left without that important button for any FPS game possible even right down to the ‘T’ spray button which might not be that useful but too some there spray is as an important their the Radio command buttons.
They’ve also integrated a ‘B’ button for fast buying at start and also there’s the ‘SHIFT’ key to silently move you’re self around the level. There’s also the added bonus of the ‘Alt key’ and the ‘Volume control’ buttons which the Wolf Claw Type II didn’t have on the Game Pad area. When using theses buttons I found they worked extremely well with no problems or lag what so ever and I really got some use out of the ‘V+,V-’ buttons as you can turn your music down with ease at that precise time without having to stop what your doing.
