Exclamation Recommend Me a Keyboard!

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 or the Microsoft - Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 or the Microsoft - Reclusa Gaming Keyboard. 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 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.
