I like mechanical keyboards with MX Cherry black switches for gaming they're really good.

G110 ftw!

thought about getting a G15 or G510 or G19, but i totally didnt wanna spend double the money just for some tiny panel which is pretty much useless cuz hardly any games and programs even support it at all

windows 7 home premium 64bit SP1 * intel core i7-950 @ 3.2ghz * MSI GTX580 Twin Frozr II OC 1.5GB * crucial M4 128GB SSD & Samsung 1TB HDD * 12GB DDR3 RAM 1333mhz * dual monitors HP 2510i 25" & LG M198WA 19" * HAF922 case *


Original G15 still. And still perfect.

I personally own a Microsoft Sidewinder x6 and I love it. It feels nice, works great and has a lot of macro buttons without needing / having a lot of extra buttons

I still think the second generation G15 is the best, but I dont think they make it anymore.

I can only say what my experience has been and for just about every thing, my good old $20 Microsoft Ergonomic keyboard is the best, it fits my hands and big fingers perfectly, its used a lot where I live it would seem, sense I'm able to go to the thrift store when ever I need a new one and pick up a new one, I've only ever needed to replace it once, it does not have all the bells and whistles as a gaming keyboard but I doubt I'll get any other keyboard any time soon and when this one kicks the bucket, I'll try and find another, the same one online or at a thrift store.

Razer Lycosa Mirror Edition. Not too much functions, not too less, quiet, fast, awesome design and the most important: blue backlight. I'm sort of a mole, i keep my window and my door allways closed and covered. I like dark style (literally)


I still use my 5 year old G15, I absolutely LOVE it having USB ports on it, which I use for my mouse and USB headset. I wish they would make a new Logitech Keyboard with USB 3 functionality and USB ports so that it's USB ports could perform faster for use with things like thumb drives.


Are mechanical keyboards worth the extra money ?

They are worth the extra money. You get a lot of value for for the dollar.
If you do a lot of typing, you will find them worthwhile.

Does the average Joe NEED a mechanical keyboard? No.

Mechanical keyboards are expensive. All those key switches come at a cost and you will find that these will not have a lot of the extra 'macro' keys that you would find on a 'rubber dome' gamer's keyboard like the G15.

My own mechanical keyboard is nice, but it is very a 'plain', standard keyboard with no macros or 'extra' keys.
