    It's a nice idea, imo. The volume wheel on Logitech's G110/G510 is abysmal.

    If that had soft white backlighting I would be sold. What i really like is the large rubber rest in place of flip out feet; those are the worst part of any keyboard.
    Life is like a hair on a toilet seat. Sooner or later you're bound to get pissed off!

    Have you seen the SteelSeries Apex keyboards (especially the [Raw])? White lighting, good feel and rubber plugs for feet instead of fold-out legs. There's some bargains on that online recently. Worth a look if you're in the market for a new keyboard.

    That Das unit is nice but the $=£ isn't so appealing.

    The Apex does not have mechanical keyswitches, which is why it is so much cheaper.

    I picked up a G710+ recently because I find media keys & programmable macro keys (dedicated calculator launch!) too convenient to give up for a switch to mechanical keys, and prefer a white backlight. The DAS looks like it would have won out, if it were available earlier and had a UK ISO layout (DAS make US ANSI only).

    ::EDIT:: Whoops, the DAS isn't backlit. Meh to that, then.
