    HA, $250 for a keyboard with a LCD and some fancy lighting. Seriously, people need to stop wasting money on crap like this and start helping out in their community more, or sponsor a starving child in Africa. But the same can be said about most computer related peripherals that exceed the $50 mark. The biggest insult is the chiclet keys, they just feel bad in every way. And since when does a gaming keyboard need to be ultra slim? It sits on your desk and you type on it, I actually prefer the idea of having a solid feeling keyboard at the expense of being slim. Performance then comfort, and lastly aesthetics.

    Do you really need to interject your self-righteous beliefs? If you sponsor a starving child until he grows to adult hood, you still haven't addressed the lack of food and as such have only contributed to the continent's problems. If you really cared making specific examples would have shown such.
