    New Keyboard

    At work I'm currently using an Enermax Aurora but I'm finding that after a couple of years of use, the keys have been removed that many times to reseat the rubber guide, that it's not working properly (particularly the space bar).

    So, what do people suggest as a comfortable typing keyboard? It's not for gaming so I don't need fancy features, but I'm not adverse to spending out on something that's easy to type on. If it wasn't for the heavily worn space bar on mine, I'd have simply gotten another one.

    Re: New Keyboard

    If you're not into curvy or ergonomic designs, then you'll not beat the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard without going wireless. The illuminated bit is a touch gimmicky (though obviously it is useful if you sit in the dark, and it can be turned off or made dimmer), but the keyboard itself is fantastic.

    Of course, if you're not fussed at going wireless (and batteries tend to last for months in them), then there's always the Logitech DiNovo.

    I'd suggest the Logitech G15, It's got a few Macro buttons, and a funky little LCD "GamePanel" keeps you up to date with MSN messages and tells you what tune is playing on iTunes. I'm looking to get it. You should see if it's what you fancy.

    That Logitech one looks promising, though not sure about the soft fuzzy surface, tend to find those somehow disturbing to lean against, but other than that, seems broadly similar to my current one, though being from Logitech, they have great customer support for issues.

    Re: New Keyboard

    The rest? It's not really soft (you can't squish it, and it doesn't move), but it's almost like a bit of rubber. Not grippy, but not slidey plastic either. TBH, I've barely even noticed it.
