    I actually use the Apple keyboard, I like the low profile form factor and find using laptop style keys a lot better than mechanical style ones.

    a 4 year old wireless Logitech number which has proved to outlive most other recent keyboards by some margin. I'm yet to jump into the realm of mechanical keyboards but can see an advantage from using them but have higher purchase priorities.

    Microsoft Reclusa - I don't think it would matter if it wasn't a gaming keyboard or not, I suppose the keys are a slightly smoother plastic....

    Re: Features - QOTW: Which keyboard do you use for PC gaming?

    Right now I am using a very old Logitech keyboard which is about 7 years old.

    This masterpiece has suffered so much of all this office work, now it's at my home and it works perfectly.

    Logitech K520. Solid wireless keyboard. I am looking at getting a newer Razer though.

    Re: Features - QOTW: Which keyboard do you use for PC gaming?

    Recently changed back to my old Saitek Eclipse II keyboard after using the Logitech G13 Gameboard and a K300 compact keyboard.

    It works but I want to get either the Logitech G710+ Mechanical Keyboard or the Corsair Vengeance K95 Mechanical Keyboard. Been wanting a mechanical keyboard for some time but have not liked the ones on offer until these ones came out. I'm not sure I like the look of the Logitech, does everything else the same as the Corsair but without the extra programmable keys but it does have 3 year warranty over the 2 years from Corsair. I'm leaning towards the Logitech at the moment.

    Logitech G710+, had it since it was released and it's been a brilliant keyboard; definitely better than the membrane keyboards I had before it.
