Picked up a new Keyboard

Bought the Logitech G110 the other day, it arrived this morning and I have to say, VERY impressed!

Before I bought it, I looked through about 10 or 11 different keyboards and read/watched reviews and this one was the one that stuck out for me that wasn't ridiculously priced.

A few people told me to get the Logitech G15 or G19, or the Razer Black Widow/Lycosa, however all of those keyboards were around the $150 - $200 range.

They aren't too bad of a keyboard, we have sold many here at work and we have on display.
I have a g15 mk II at home and im pretty happy with it.
However when I buy a new keyboard im going to replace it with one that has a lot less w@nk factor as you will find that the display on your keyboard is completely useless.
I think I have actually used it a few times, the rest of the time its just a clock.
When I buy a new keyboard it will be a mechanical type keyboard with switches that go click when you press them.

I purposely didn't buy the G15 because of that stupid LCD screen.

There were a few mechanical keyboards, but the only one I was interested in was $250+


I picked up this G110 for $60 + shipping too XD

IBM Model M for the win! You can buy refurbed ones and they are loud enough to annoy your neighbours. Feels awesome to type/play on, sounds horrible to anyone else. CLACK CLICKETY CLACK CLACK!

Good mechanical keyboards start from around $89 as umart has them from $89.50.
Another brilliant keyboard is the Das Keyboard which starts from around $139.

Actually, that is an awesome keyboard too Phil. I love that you can get it with totally blank keys, looks like the monolith out of 2001: A Space Oddysee.

I have an Apple aluminium keyboard (USB not wireless) paired with a Microsoft Sidewinder mouse. Absolutely love the combination but I guess I haven't used many other keyboards/mice

I was having a look at switching to a Logitech G19 as well as a G9x however I'd rather save my pennies; My keyboard and mouse works so there's no real point in switching.

I was thinking about a new keyboard to recently. I agree Samsara wouldn't buy a keyboard with a screen. I have no business looking at my keyboard. Here some website that might be helpful;

Type Keyboard comparison
Cherry Switch info

I had a third but can't find it in my history

Which keyboards did you have in mind? Logitech G110 is amazing, and for $60, it has everything I could need. 12 Macro keys with three different macro settings. And then you can go into the profile manager, and make profiles for particular games. It' bloody awesome, and there isn't any wa.nk factor at all. Plus the backlighting is awesome.

I ended up with a Razer w/ Cherry Blue keys. I love typing on it the clicking as I depress a key is great. I didn't get a backlit model just the cheaper one. I also got a nVidia 670GTX video card.

wel even though I can't type for ****. I tooo bought a new one recentlly been through 4 - did Mk240 or MK420 sets all them wrieless types

but always kept my original Lgitech mouse with rechargable base station.

but need ed a new key board see I use it in my bed becausse it's only place I can use the internet. Plus it's only time i am on my PC.

So I bought the latest Logitech Solar panel one - the K750. So far so good. All the others I've broken buttons on them or well I think one It might havee been the number of times I left it on the floor and walked on it.

But this things is nice. They say 3 months charge well ? I don't know it works it's nice wireless etc.
