    i'm using a Gigabyte GK-K7100 slim laptop style keyboard for my desktop. absolutely love the slim minimalistic design. easy to press down, and makes for my main gaming keyboard too :D

    I use a standard 104 key PS/2 keyboard. Nothing fancy. I have various brands but at the moment I happen to be using an old Dell keyboard circa 1999.

    Just purchased a Logitech Cordless desktop wave Pro. Cordless keyboard/Laser mouse. very happy with it. works great for FPS's and the KB has a great feel.

    Have been through a few keyboards, Iiked a white Microsoft 500 wired with ps/2 plug, keep it for a backup.
    Had a Logitech Internet keyboard which looked the part, but the keys were very high resistance.
    A local supermarket had the first stock of the 2010 Microsoft wireless 1000 Kbd & mse sets.
    Were at half price for a week, it had to be bought! Keyboard has shallow action 'easy' keys,
    plus 17 hot keys, 5 that can activate the first 5 icons in the taskbar on Win 7. No delay in action,
    I don't remember using a better one. If this was about the most used keyboard in UK, it would have to be the standard minimal grey Dell, I see it in every office, library or shop I go in. Shame it's so poor.
  9. i use microsoft digital media pro keyboard and microsoft laser mouse 6000 v.1

    Have any of you Logitech users had issues with the lettering rubbing off of the keys? I had that happen on two older keyboards, and remember reading a lot of negative reviews on newegg from people having that problem with the original G15, so I have not even considered a Logitech keyboard in years even though i like the features. (Love their mice!)

    i use logitech ultra flat keyboard
     
  12. I suppose I'm somewhat of a keyboard snob: I liked the old IBM "M" clicky-style, mechanical-switch keyboards. These days, I'm using this one: a Filco Majestouch Tactile Touch NKRO which has Cherry "brown" mechanical switches and N-key rollover -- possibly the best keyboard I've ever used (but, then, I'm not a gamer).

    G15, V2. They're getting so cheap I'm thinking of getting a second one.

    A 10 or so year old Microsoft Internet Keyboard on my main computer (no complaints, and I love how "clicky" the keys are) and one of those crap roll-up rubber keyboards on my other computer, simply because it is the only USB keyboard I own.

    Logitech MX 3200 Wireless Keyboard & Mouse (Worth buying refurbished for 44$)
    -LCD Screen displays time and that's it. Not very usefull at all.

    Mouse could not handle the clicking from a hardcore gamer, so replaced it with Microsoft Sidwinder X8. Mouse is larger and feels bulky when compared to the smaller mouses but you get use to it.

    Currently I'm using a Microsoft Reclusa and I'm pretty happy with it. I previously had a Z board which worked quite well with its removable key-sets. The only reason I replaced it was due to it's lack of a back-light. Previous to that I had an original Microsoft Natural keyboard which lasted for a long time. Lastly my first PC keyboard was the packed in one that came with my Compaq Presario 425.

    Looks like we need a shootout!
  20. I have a DasKeyboard and while I love it for typing I would never recommend it. They put an extremely crappy USB hub on the keyboard that causes all kinds of problems. Half of the time the keyboard won't initialize. When plugged in, USB mass storage devices will not be recognized.
    Great keyboard, piss-poor implementation. Went round-and-round with tech support but they would not admit the obvious and, judging by responses I've come across on the internet, it's not like it's an isolated problem.

    Those are the people who don't wash their hands :p With LED lit logitechs it shouldn't be a problem. Although my eyes are awful it seems the G15 V2 or G510 keyboards letters or numbers are actually a semi clear part in the plastic for the light to shine through.
  22. Using the Logitech Illuminated keyboard one of the best keyboards i have ever used. Not sure when i will replace it.. its just excellent and very durable... been using it non stop for over a year and a half and still looks like the day i bought it.
  23. I have used a wolfking timberwolf for 10 years to aid my mad FPS skills.They no longer make these so next year i'll prolly start using Razer lycossa keyboards
  24. I use 2 SEAL SHIELD SSK107 Medical Grade Dishwasher Safe Keyboards. They're great because when one gets stickyed up i just grab the other one out of the dishwasher. I also have a custom dishwasher safe plexi skins for my monitor. PORN FTW!

    No complains, it's my second Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000. I've had non ergonomic keyboards before and I must say it's a big difference. You don't get those tired wrists after typing for long periods of time.
