eww ergonomic keyboards. my wrists hurt more after using them than normal keyboards. if you know proper typing techniques any keyboard has the same effect. like it was said before, its not the keyboard, its how you use it.

well, let's just say that I could probably think of hundreds if not thousands of better ways to waste $400+ than to buy a keyboard. Sure if you want to waste that much, go ahead. I'll probably buy something usefull instead.

if I had $500-$600 bucks to blow, I would NOT be spending it on a keyboard!

LOL This has gone a long way and not one cross word from any one. But you can tell the subject has struck a nerve in some of us. Speaking just for myself, I mod for performance not looks. Most of my creations are parked in plain Jane cases. When I get asked what I did to them I just pop off the side of the case. As for the keyboard, shaving the front feet or removing them makes the KB more ergonomicly comfortable. There's all kinds of things you can do short of reprogramming the encoder chip in the KB.

Just because I mod PCs and other stuff, doesn't mean I want to look cool. It's just because of it. I'd like to have colors in them a bit more, but my main point of modding is airflow, and what not.

Why should I waste money on a keyboard? To me, if you spend that much, it's because you either want it to look nice, or you want to make yourself cool.

I have a Logitech wireless desktop, and it serves me fine...and the intent of a keyboard is to type...not to take pics (generally speaking)

And the keyboard is ugly:

It looks like someone puched in a standard keyboard and added a few lights...and sell it sky high.
