I'm looking to buy a new keyboard next week with the $50 Best Buy gift cards I have. I'm looking at the Logitech - G15 Gaming Keyboard with LCD Display (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8488807&type=product&id=1186003682394) or the Microsoft - Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=7332059&type=product&id=1122653022021) or the Microsoft - Reclusa Gaming Keyboard (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8425732&type=product&id=1181832624927). I'd like a gaming keyboard, but it's not a must. I've been using that Microsoft ComfortCurve 2000 keyboard for a couple of years now and really like it, but I'm ready for a change. Thank you in advance for your input. ;)

I think I'd go for the Reclusa. In fact I think I'll buy one now. I have a Saitek now and it's the second one I've owned and the letters keep rubbing off the keys.

They have that one (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8986662&type=product&id=1218006405801) at Best Buy. I'll take a look at it when I go there.

I thought about getting that keyboard myself but didn't care for the feel of the keys. It's a lot like typing on a notebook, but it felt flimsier than my MacBook Pro's keyboard.

Razer Lycosa is pretty sweet

Razer Mamba seems like a really nice gaming mouse as well

I am a fan of the Saitek Backlit keyboard. There are a couple to choose from and I know best buy carries at least one type.

Doesn't the keys on your Saitek have the letters rub off after a while? I have had 2 with the same problem. I won't be buying another one.

The Saitek Eclipse II would go great with my PC, you know, with the red lights and all. ;) I must admit that I've always thought of Saitek as kind of "cheap" though.

I think it's coming down to the Saitek Eclipse II and the Razer Lycosa.

I like the response time of the Lycosa. I couldn't find any information about the response time for the Eclipse II.

The letters on my Eclipse II have not worn off and I've had it for a good 6 months or so. The only button that has kind of rubbed off is the play/pause button. Other than that, I'm fairly happy with it.

I went and bought the Saitek Eclipse II yesterday evening. The jury is still out on it. Going to take some getting used to after using the ComfortCurve 2000 for so long. The keys on the Eclipse II are tall unlike the keys on the Microsoft keyboard. Plus, they are a little slick. I'm not impressed with the wrist "pad" either. It's hard plastic instead of a softer material. I may take it back or give it to the wife. She likes the purple lights. I give it 3.5 out of 5.
