    Should I get the G15????

    hey guys,
    My christmas list is compiled of a razer diamondback and 5.1 headpphones and a few games. I need a new mouse because my optical broke now but im not sure if I should get the logitech G15. The first problem is budget, im only 14 and can only spend about 150 for christmas. The razer is 30 and the headphones 20, so thats 50 add another 45 for the kb and thats about 90! nt bad, but I dont know if it is worth it to buy a new keyboard!
    thanks guys

    Thats whats making me think about it. I hav a crappy noisy keyboard, no name, which is an ugly colour, but I am not sure at all if it is worth the 45 quid.

    It depends what you wanna do, My zBoard is awesome for playing games, i'd never go back to using a qwerty (it does come with a qwerty layout for typing obviously).

    I can't get scan free delivery because mine got all mesed up! I want a keyboard for normal general use and playing games, I want a quiet keyboard and one that lights up. What are the macro keys used for? Also, whats the Zboard like, I don't wanna get one because the keysets are way too expensive!

    IMO the Zboard key, well uhm.... feels cheap. Stick with my recommendation. The Saitek is silent, lights up and the keys are firm and fast

    How does the zBoard feel sheap? Its soooo comfy, plus the keysets look great and really makes a diff, lots of ppl in my clan use them now and you can see the improvement.

    But the problem is, the keysets are like 13 quid!!! A person of my age cannot afford a lot of them, it would be better to buy a normal keyboard!
