I have one and the responsiveness was fine (using wireless). My biggest gripe was the unlit keyboard. I do lots of gaming at night in rooms with low or no lights other than my monitor and that was annoying at times. I ended up going with the lapdog primarily because of that.

Aside from the three mentioned in the article (Razer, Corsair, & Roccat) how many more of these types of products exist on the market today? I remember reading about something like this years ago but can't recall the brand. Any other upcoming articles on any other brands, or do you have a favorite between these three?

Not many others that I'm aware of. Steiger Dynamics has this one, but it's huge and more for living room productivity (eg, a full day of work): https://www.steigerdynamics.com/productcart/pc/configurePrd.asp?idproduct=375

There's also this, which I know nothing about: http://www.phantom.net/products.html

And there are several on the market that are basically a keyboard with an *integrated* touchpad, not a mouse. Which to me is in a different category.

I hesitate to anoint a "favorite," especially because these all have pros and cons, and of course comparing the Turret to the Sova/Lapdog is really an apples/oranges situation. I found myself gravitating towards the Sova, just because it's more compact than the Lapdog, and I like the Brown switches just fine. But I would suggest looking at all three closely and determining what's best for your own setup and preferences. What I "like" may not be what's most ideal for you. I think all have great upsides.
