    Where to find a cheap not nasty keyboard

    What keyboard would you recommend to me, since my current one is getting a bit worn out? I don't want anything expensive with extra keys, but I don't want a low quality one. Where would I get it as well?

    Thanks

    Oh, while I'm asking, where can I buy a Zalman Flower from? Mine is currently on loan from my brother.

    I think Aria sell the Zalmans.. not sure on price, though.

    In terms of keyboard, I can recommend a Memorex one that comes in at less than a tenner from ebuyer. It's Grey/silver, and the keys have a lovely feel to them. There are a few multimedia buttons, but I don't use them.

    I second theo's recommendation of the Memeorex keyboards, very good value and build quality i have the older Cream and grey model (You cant get it any more) have had it for over 2 years and it hasnt broke yet (Touch wood).

    The Silver and grey one Theo is on about has very nice looking metallic finish to it.

    They dont have any at the moment (And theres a 99 day wait!)

    The Microsoft keyboard doesnt look to shabby though

    imho, the old old old school compaq keyboards have the nicest feel to them and cost about £5 nowadays.
