    Need advice on gaming keyboard

    I got a Logitech Multimedia keyboard atm, great for lazy users, but this thing is extremely sloooooow on response time. Any good gaming keyboard out there?? And I don't like the Z-keyboard for gaming though, just ordinary layout is enough, but firm keys and fast response.

    I always thought that, wireless mice are alwasy hassled about their lag, bu what about keyboards? Surely that would be important.

    How do you like laptop keys? Quick response, less cumbersome, look at the Logitech UltraX

    Anymore recommendation ?? And by the way we're talking about keyboards , i've got a Razer Diamondback already, the keyboard keep making me shoot at the wall instead of the foes in CS cause it just didn't move much when I keep pressing on the key.

    Another vote for the MS Natural Pro here as well.

    Although as a side note you cant buy them anymore.

    Get a Dell Keyboard

    I know I know, but they really do rock. What I love about them is that the keys are nice and hard and you can type extremely fast on them (I can type considerably faster on mine than on this one, which has softer keys) so I just tend to keep it.

    Possibly the best product Dell ever made

    I love my Logitech Ultra X. - notebook style keypads in a regular frame. Not for everyone, but it's different, and looks great with an mx700

    Don't like the Dell ones, those at school gave me wrist ache lol. I'm considering between the UltraX and the MS Natural, think the UltraX will go well with my Wavemaster. Is its layout any different from others ??

    I bought a Dell keyboard too , I used one at work and they seem nice and solid. I suppose they are a kind of 'default' or standard design in the keyboard world. But I still want to try the laptop style UltraX
