    I will throw in the obligatory, "what about the Saitek Eclipse/Eclipse II?" comment. They are normally $50 or less on newegg and are superior in key feel than the G15 or most others. Sure it doesn't have an LCD at the top, but that thing is little more than a novelty anyway. IMO anyway...

    The major difference I can think of with the Eclipse II is that is will do 3 colors of backlighting (Blue, Red, Purple) the Eclipse is just one. Also the Eclipse II has a variable knob for brightness of the backlighting, the Eclipse just had like a high, med, low, off or something like that. The Eclipse II also has a few media buttons on it (volume control/mute and basic play/pause/stop/fw/rw). I had the Eclipse and got a free upgrade to the Eclipse II. I definitely like it better. I like the wrist rest better, and the red color is so much easier on the eyes than blue (for me at least). Also it's nice to have a variable control for the brightness.


    But the major selling point of the Eclipse(s) over the G15 or most other keyboards isn't backlighting or some other gimmick. It's the quality of the keys. Typing on an Eclipse is like butter, it's just the best feeling keyboard I've ever used. I've tried the G15 and it just felt cheap and clunky. I previously had an Ideazon ZBoard and after using the Eclipse, I realized how cheap and clunky it felt as well.

    I have a tarantula and it frankly feels cheap. The first one I got (going to have to do something creative to get it replaced now I guess) as soon as I got it didnt work right, pressing ANY key on the left side of the board would make it randomly spit 1's out either continuously or at its choosing.

    Attempted to contact Razer re: it and after 4 emails I gave up.

    Bad part is that it looks brand new, the plastic is still on it, it is back in the box, it just doesnt work.

    Ill stick with my G15, Eclipse I and II and the ancient ps/2 kb I have thanks.

    i beg to differ with those saying the LCD is gimmicky or novelty:




    its full of useful information for me
    plus i use the teamspeak plugin while i game and can see who's talking, with the option of muting my mic using one of the keys located under the lcd

    there is a lot that can be done with it, its just how you go about doing it

    I need a new keyboard also. I want keys that are flat like a laptops, and light up. I was looking at the creative fatal1ty one. looks nice. but maybe a little cramped. I am looking for something black with blue blacklit keys. any suggestions? anyone tried the creative fatal1ty board?

    Thanks

    The G15 looks nice but i would like it in black with blue Keys.... and im not in the mood for modding a keyboard

    I have both the g15 and the saitek II. Overall the saitek is a much better keyboard IMHO if you dont use the extra keys on the g15. Also the keys on both versions of the g15 feel like a $2 ps/2 keyboard you could find anywhere to me.
