Default Gaming keyboards.

I'm in the market for a gaming keyboard, what do you guys have, and what are your experiences?

an Saitek Eclipse

i like it because it illuminates at night, which is good when playing in the dark, and it looks cool.

Why do you need an expensive gaming keyboard? Just use whatever you got.

That samsung looks super cheap..

I'm leaning towards a saitek w/ the backlighting. I don't really want a G15 because of the size (we have a couple at work) while the screen is awesome and all, it's something I just don't need and it'd be too big to justify for lans. I think saitek has my cash as of now..

I don't. The keyboard I have now is an older Dell and it's getting warn, I'd like to replace it with a keyboard I enjoy typing on. The keys right now are super loud, have a long keystroke and often don't register as a press. I do a lot of computing at night so I'd like to have one that's backlit.

Anything that's USB and has a wristpad like the Samsung above. Gaming keyboards aren't worth the money IMO, I regret spending so much on my G15.

I really don't see the point in spending a lot of money on a keyboard........

$50 for a backlit keyboard from saitek IMO is a good price. I'm not going to pay $100 for a keyboard with an LCD screen in it..

The Razer Tarantula has a light that you can plug into the keyboard to illuminate the keys.
