    Decently priced keyboard for gaming and typing?

    Looking for a keyboard now my old Microsoft one is on it's last legs..

    Used mainly for gaming and general typing duties..i've seen a few but they're silly money..

    Decently priced recommendations please?

    Non-click, non-wavy, wired with multimedia keys preferable.

    Cheers, Roo

    I use the Logitech G15 and can't fault it. Very well built, has media keys and it cost me £45 about 6 months ago. The LCD screen has tons of apps you can use on it too. I understand their customer service is well regarded though I haven't had cause to use it.

    I have both the Logitech G11 V2 and G15 V2 and they have been great IMHO.

    Another vote for the Logitech G11 (not sure if it's on sale any more, think it has been replaced by the G110) and for Logitech in general.

    Still extremely happy with my saitek eclipse II. IMHO better to type on than the logitechs, but no customisable buttons (only simple media controls are present).

    I have the old G15v1 (blue LED) and its superb - customiseable apps for the LCD screen, media controls and 16 macro buttons - brilliant esp if you play mmos.
