    Logitech G15
    I purchased this because it is well constructed, looks great, works great, 54 macro keys, key illumination that is not to bright and adjustable, and very large so my big hands have lots of room. You know what they say about people with large hands......

    I used to have a very good Saitek Eclipse with cool key lighting etc, it broke down, so I bought a 12 euro MS as plain as it can be keyboard in black colour and still using it for about 4 months now. Best keyboard I have ever had. Great key responses, great plain design, proper distances and no annoying "rest" pads or extensions or any of those "ergonimical" features. It has 10 extra keys on top over the function keys. Mail, Home, Favourites, Play/Pause, Vol Up-Down, Mute, Music, My Computer and Calculator. No drivers needed and they all work great out of the box. Wish I could say the same for other far far more expensive keyboards.

    Logitech Elite.

    I love the scroll wheel on the side... I'm going to be sad when it breaks and I have to replace it.

    Chicony, the simplest keyboard model with no extra buttons.

    I use the cheapest keyboard I could find at the time lol. I eat at my computer and drink and I never found it worth it to use a nice one in case I wreck it.

    It's a GE $10USD at Target :)

    I use the LX700 keyb mouse combo from Logitech. Why? Because it looked cool. Also, I liked the idea that there was one receiver for both mouse and keyb and that I could plug it into my PS2 connectors. I.e. No USB.

    That keyboard looks sweet, I also used to have the All Natural keyboard and loved it. I do like my G15 but I don't find it as comfortable as the MS one.
    You think that one is even better than the All Natural Pro keyboard Judas?

    WAY better.... much smoother and even better on my wrists.....

    with the all natural one.. occasionally i'd get the odd sore feeling or cramp.... but with this one. i can type ALL day long and screw around doingstuff all day long.. and i've yet to feel a numbing or tingling sensation or feel sore...

    currently still have the Logitech mxDuo KB/mouse combo kit. although, i've replaced the mouse with the g5, and it's a MUCH better mouse.

    i'm also looking to replace the KB sometime soon as this wireless KB is now giving me problems from time to time.

    just to comment on the G15 series logitech keyboard.


    it's really a neato cool keyboard.. but it's horribly designed "standard" keyboard.... it's.. well.. impossible to use..

    if logitech followed nearly exact the microsoft erganomic one i posted.. i swear thier sales would go up even further....

    Currently (and not impressed by), a Logitech Cordless Desk set (OEM) came with the PC.

    Keytop lettering loss - severe, the worst of any keyboard I've had!
    Mouse has iffy battery contact, and seems to be a common annoyance on this model.

    Favourite keyboard, a BTC with built in glidepad - love to get another full keyboard with glide, but that one also had annoying keytop fade at the end.

    Also "retired", a fancy keyboard with colour keytops as a fingering hint and a choice of return key sizes - liked it, apart from the tendency of the return key to stick, if only they'd put extra springs where the "dead" keys were!

    To go on soon: Tevion Cordless set, though I'm beginning to wonder if cordless is worth the aggravation when the battery goes out at critical moment.
