Oooh... I was looking to buy one of those.

Right now I have a G15. I don't find myself using alot of the keys, the coating on the keys wears off, the LCD has limited support as well as the media keys, and it's huge!

Just a warning to potential G15 buyers, the keyboard isn't worth the money!


Let me know how you're keyboard works out for you cause it's alot smaller and has some useful features.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

the g15 keyboard can and does make r6-vegas crash i have witness it once but a clan member claims its crashing him all the time, personally i think he has a dodgy keyboard, however in my case you can tell when its the keyboards fault you crashed as the g-keys cease working until you shut down and relauch the keyboard profiler

Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000 here...best keyboard for the arms (carpal tunnel) and it does well in gaming as well (no LCDs....just good if you're gaming for a couple of hours).

I've found the Dell keyboard to have the best feel on the keys. Too bad it's something crazy like $35 to buy a replacement one.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I personally don't see the purpose of purchasing a overpriced piece of fluff for a keyboard (no offense to anyone or the OP). I have a perfectly good $3 keyboard that serves me well. The only time I would ever even think of getting a pricey keyboard is if I ever go uberleet and decide to make gaming a career thing or if I develop RSI/carpal and I need the ergonomics.

Dragon,
I have both the Tarantula keyboard and the Copperhead mouse. I was a G15 owner but the keys started to stick. 79 for the keyboard and 69 for the mouse at C City. The on the fly DPI is good for having more than one programmed mouse setting.

Razer stuff is really nice, both that keyboard and mouse have made a lot of games more fun to play, especially mmorpgs with the keyboard. mouse is more for fps. Great products but not for everyone. The new Death Adder Razer mouse is actually a great improvement over the copperhead.

well i just went with the g15 keyboard for the ability of using the g-keys to send keybinds in games ie in vegas they set to welcome ppl to server etc etc etc

People say that about overpriced mice but i reckon there is something to be said positively about good quality computer components such as keyboards & mice. I use a basic labtec flat profile keyboard it was cheap as chips but the keys are not very responsive most of the times, infact they lag like crazy lol. I was thinking about investing in the Raptor K1 Professional Gaming-Grade Keyboard with their Cherry Gold Crosspoint contacts and the adjusted coil springs, i mean read on ..."30% shorter stroke than conventional keyboards. This feature maximises the entry speed and reactivity while playing ? with minimum fatigue by unmatched velocity and reaction advantages, heh heh!.

Every key can be programmed with up to four functions. Your hand never leaves the keys. It's the best thing I've found for my left hand to play with.... Uhhh That didn't come out right. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif

I was looking at the Razer Tarantula (http://www.razerzone.com/Products/Gaming-Keyboard/Razer-Tarantula-Gaming-Keyboard/) but was surprised that not all of the keys are backlit.

The Nostromo (yes I actally own one) isn't very good. It's construction is cheap, it's keys responsiveness / aftertouch is only on the level of better noname keyboards. The cooliehat only works intuitively in 4 directions, not 8.
The feedback of the jump button is sluggy, the wheel is UNREACHABLE in the heat of battle...
