Default What's your favorite keyboard?

I bought a Saitek Eclipse a couple of months ago, and have been pretty disappointed by it. The biggest flaw is that it does not handle multiple keypresses well, so it's worthless for some games.

I need to find a replacement. Does anyone have a suggestion for a keyboard with:
  • Good tactile feedback
  • Keys that are fairly quiet
  • USB interface
  • Supports multiple keys being pressed
  • Standard key layout as opposed to "ergonomic"

I don't need any of the fancy, multimedia options. What I really want is a USB version of my old IBM keyboard

I've been using a diNovo (the one for laptops) for the past few months -- for some reason I quite like laptop keyboards, and that's the closest I've found to a full-sized one (apart from the full-sized diNovo which is Bluetooth and therefore = teh suck).

Not sure it would be very good for twitch gaming though!

This one. Its a laptop style only full size. Its ultra fast for gaming since there is not much key movement. Best keyboard I have used, and for $20 you can't beat it.

I have a logitech G15 and I love it. It's by far the best keyboard I have ever used. It does have a whole pile of extra keys though, which you don't want. But it has all of the things you want in the list.

Any of the MS Natural keyboard variants. Edit: Actually, sorry. My recommendation isn't good. I missed one of your points.
