    What keyboard do you use?

    I currently use the Logitech G15 and i have never used its macro keys. I really love having the display for email and gaming but when i come to buy the G19 its £125.93 from scan and i dont really see the point in buying it just to view if i have an email or not and the occasional game it supports

    So i've decieded to go with the Saitek II at £27.50 saving a hell of alot of money!

    What do you use?

    I had a Saitak the one before the version you have posted. I loved it!!! Since it broke a few months I have not found a good enough replacement. So let me know how the Saitek II is!!

    Re: What keyboard do you use?

    Due to the keyboard draw on my desk I need a keyboard with a stright front, currently using a HP standard keyboard
    Which I swaped from a Logitech Deluxe 250 because of the desk
    Neather are flashy, no programmable keys or even multi media keys.
    But both are very nice keyboards to type on and under £10

    Re: What keyboard do you use?

    Yeah I have one of those hp's somewhere, the feel of the keys is very nice, typing is pretty pleasant on it. I really think that expensive gaming keyboards are a bit of a rip-off, especially as most of them are horrible to actually type on!

    Re: What keyboard do you use?

    The Logitech Deluxe 250 is even better the key presses are a little more firm, it feels a bit more solid overall and lacks the slightly wobbly space bar of the HP

    The macro buttons are surprisingly useful in windows when you need to do repetitive tasks like trimming file names or canned responses sort of things

    Re: What keyboard do you use?

    I use a G15v1.

    Before that i had a few basic logitech keyboards and 2 cherry keyboards, i go through keyboards and mice pretty quickly. My g15 is holding up pretty nice, the macro keys and the screen are useful like but if someone took them away i wouldnt really notice or miss them.

    Saitek Eclipse II, great keyboard without having to spend a fortune.

    If you already have a G15 why are you changing it?
