    The one that came with my PC. I just looked at the back, and it (imagine that) says KeyBoard. It works fine for me, a bit loud but otherwise ok. I also have a Genius keyboard on the other computer, can't remember the model, but it's the cheapest one there is. Works fine, a bit quieter, softer, and, on the overall, more comfortable than this one, but , unlike it, it has no additional buttons. Not too much of a drawback, though, as I only use volume controls, and my mom pressed sleep last time she was cleaning the keyboard (she was doing that while the PC was on :rolleyes:).

    I use a big old IBM heavy buckling spring 101 key keyboard (no windows keys). It's actually PS2 & looks identical to one that was used on the old IBM terminals with the two button mice (I have a PS2 one of those too, but I use a MX500 instead).

    I love this keyboard as I can mash and press as much as I want without breaking it. It is a bit loud, but then again, I am a serious computer user. I still get picked on by my gaming buddies with their Sietek(sp?) and G15 macro keyboards. I shut a couple of them up by letting them use my keyboard and they were blown away with how nice it actually is!

    Looks like this:

    mywife uses a logi g15. the lcd screen aside, it is an excellent keyboard.
    i use a razer tarantula. while its 'feel' & overall design & build quality is excellent. its lack of lighting combined with its dark(compared to most keyboards) make it a poor choice for gaming in the dark unless you are a touch typist. im not.
    so when the battlelight finally came out i was quite happy. silly me. it basically lites from d to page keys. period. while it can be turned it doesnt help & there is no way to lock the light in place. it moves very easily. to easily imo.
    i have no idea why they have onboard mem with it either. unlike the death adder you cant load a profile into the mem & plug it into another comp & not have to install & configure the drivers(wich i really like). it serves no real legit purpose that i can tell(support couldnt give me a real use for it either) except to drive the cost up.
    while i really like my death adder & the tarantula is good(but overpriced), my recent experience with their pathetic support has left me in a position were i will never buy another razer product or rec them anymore.
    back to logitech & ms for me.

    had 2x eclipse vers 1, some of the keys wore out incredibly fast, in fact i have never had the actual letters wear on a keyboard before.
    you guys have issues like that with the eclipse kb?

    I use a Saitek Keyboard. The reason I bought it was the reputation they have & it is backlighted :cool:

    Another Saitek user here. (should have put it in the poll.. lots of people use it) I had the one pictured above first.. but now I'm on the second version .. Eclipse II. You can adjust the brightness of the backlight with a knob in the top right corner. Love my red/purple/blue backlight!

    Logitech. Always loved Logitech peripherals. Still have my Logitech serial mouse that was actually shaped like a rodent with the mouse buttons being eyes :)
