    I'm with this guy here. I've been playing MW2 on this keyboard for awhile and I pretty much get 1st place every time, if not, then top 3 unless there are a bunch of (real) hackers players in the match.

    As of last week I started using a G15. Till then I was using an MS Internet Keyboard Pro for my gaming machine. My other machines use an assortment of wired/wireless/bluetooth keyboards from MS and Logitech and then there's the pink Saitek keyboard & mouse combo on my daughter's machine. Let's not forget all the Mac keyboards I have for all my Macs also.
     
  3. The Das keyboard and the Filco Majestouch keyboards are essentially the same thing -- both with the identical layouts and the identical Cherry mechanical switches -- however, the Filco models do not have the potentially useful but, unfortunately, problematic USB hub.

    I'm quite happy with my Logitech G15. Wouldn't mind a Das Ultimate for my next upgrade though.

    I use a Razer Tarantula. The keyboard itself is fantastic... but the software is terrible.

    Yep. Many letters on mine are totally worn off. I imagine that's not uncommon for keyboards though (regardless of brand).

    Logitech G15 - love that lcd display. The keyboard is just a little undersized so I have to adjust between work and home. I'll be watching the screen and see half my chars off by one key postition :(

    CyberSnipa Flexiglow - just enough keys to play a FPS with a butterfly layout for WASD + QE

    You should have your mind washed out with soap, young man..........along with your keyboard......
    Will they also tolerate chlorine bleach.....? ;)

    Saitek Eclipse keyboard and Logitech G9 gaming mouse. Been a good solid combo for me but I wouldn't mind trying out that Black Widow when it becomes available.

    G15 for a good 5 years now, bought the original when it came out and have been using it ever since.

    G15 V2, initially used the original G11 and liked that as well, though it was too wide for where I was using it.

    I use a Logitech G15. I have a Razer Tarantula, which I never liked and I have my 6 year old Saitek elcipse as a backup.
     
  18. I'm using a silicon foldable and washable design by these guys.

    Microsoft Comfort Curve 2000 here. Good keyboard. I prefer wired to wireless generally (I have an wireless MS keyboard somewhere and mouse but I don't use them). I also use a wired CyberSniper mouse.

    Just in the market for a new keyboard as the M key has just decided to stop working. I worry about using an expensive keyboard - fizzy drinks have a tendancy to spill near them a bit too often to think about spending 80quid on one :)
     
  21. WHICH keyboard is that from the picture at the main page??? not the Razer Black Widow,but the one with colored windows button??
     
  22. The one from the spotlight when u enter the site,sorry for posting again,just want to clarify :D

    First real keyboard i purchased was the G11 v1, then after a minor incident involving a can of coke i swopped for a G15 and then got a G11 v2 and finally have the G510.
    The best was the G11 v1 due to the amount of G-keys and the low profile wrist rest + the lcd monitor.
    The G11 v2 had the lcd removed and the G15 is just too high for my taste and also lack the 18 G-keys.
    The G510 has the 18 G-keys and the lcd + full rgb colour scheme but still have to get used to the higher profile on the wrist rest.
    And the G19 is just too expensive tbh.

    Been thinking of either a Razor or steelseries for my next keyboard.
     
  24. I only use one keyboard these days - and it's the last one I'll ever need:

    IBM Model M

    I had a g15 once. It was destroyed in a basement flood:( You should have seen me trying to save my old mobos, some which were still on torture racks. You would have thought my kids were dieing by the pitch of my screams. I'm not using an old gateway keyboard until i feel like buying a new one.
