I'd go with whatever is comfortable and looks like it will last a long time. The extra features are really a matter of preference.
    Not in Sweden it isn't. 1049 SEK = $154
    At the cheapest internetdealer in Sweden.

    As long as its responsive and plays/feels smooth, thats all ya need

    Hell! here's mine!

    Check it out!


    haha




    Kidding of course, I prefer an Eluminix

    The keys are soft and quiet, and there backlit for the dark rooms so you can see what your doing if you need to.

    I just took my keyboard (IBM) and took all the keys out, cleaned everything and sprayed with Silicon with Teflon (DuPont makes it). It is sooo quiet now, and works great.

    A few things about the gaming keyboards that are nice (some of them)...they can register 5 keypresses simultaneously (although I have yet to personally hit 5 keys at the same time ) and they are backlit. The latter, I use a small USB red tube light that is mounted above the keyboard under the montior platform.

    At any rate, I'd say if you have a little time, take apart your old friend and try to give it some new life. (Just make sure you know where all the keys go, as some keyboards have unique buttons, etc). Also, if you spray it don't spray the membrane as it can warp, just where the keys travel etc.

    I personally would never use a keyboard with macros simply because I have no need for it. Plus if you ever get into Lan tourneys they often won't allow stuff like that. I have to second the motion to get a really good mouse.

    Yea, maybe this is the best advice for me... If I come to think about I might not even need the macros as long as I can use my old keyboard.....
    Ok, A new question then...
    How do I remove lots and lots of dried in beer from the keyboard? Right now keys get stuck and some don't register the hit every time... Some guide I could find somewhere online?

    The G11 is the same as the G15 without the LCD, fyi

    Now that would be a useful feature for me

    I use the macro keys as well. There are several plugins available for the LCD (including IRC I think but there is some reason why I didn't install it that I can't remember right now).

    Does that thing work with irc? I could see that being a fairly useful addition at any rate.

    I have a Logitech G15 keyboard even with a lcd display - but i don't use both in shooters because it's faster to press the usual keys than find a key somewhere on the side of your keyboard and move your hand back to its normal position.
    But I often use the display for icq (a chat program like aim/msn/yahoo..) to quickly write to contacts without leaving the game.

    I also find the media keys and the key that deactivates the windows-key practical - although i forget it most times

    For me i think the money was worth it - but you won't have a real advantage in fast games..

    I hear what you're saying(I will not like my new keyboard as much as my old one) and a decent mouse I allreay got but to replace my old IBM(I think it was delivered with a 386) wont be possible. So i need something! And I like the idea of having macros in other games so...
