Question Buy STORM NOW...or wait another MONTH?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Everyone,

I went and tested the Storm. After changing the keyboard settings (sensitivity, intervals, etc.) I was very impressed with it. I wish someone explained the "scroll" feature, I felt like an idiot the first 10 minutes. Typing speed went fine after another 10 minutes

My main questions is should I wait another month or two to purchase due to existing new release bugs? Or have there been consistent updates yet?

Any input would be appreciated!

I just got a storm a few days ago and i have not had any problems that would make me want to take it back. They are definitely going to update the OS but just to fix little things. I dont think there are going to be and huge benefits in waiting for a few months but you never know.

I just got mine and I love it. It's awesome. i am glad that I listened to people that said that it was worth it because IMO it is.
