    Just had my Logitech G15 keyboard die, (Nooooooooooooooo!!!!!!) after many years of use.

    Just wanted some advice on a replacement. What people are using and how they rate them.

    Want to spend no more than £70 - £80 but would prefer to spend less.

    Any suggestions.

    Only place i've seen them is ebay. Dont think you can get them new from a retailer anymore.

    I love my sidewinder X6

    Very awesome and only £35

    Ok it doesn't have a flashy LCD but I find I hardly use them. I have tried various different keyboards...including a lot of the saitek keyboards, have to say I very much like this. The keys feel very nice, has a very warm excellent red backlight and plenty of macro buttons, plus has multimedia hot keys.

    Let me link a picture:

    Mechanicals are a good way to go, and there are some in your price range. If the Black Widow interests you I recommend the 'stealth' edition instead as it has many technical improvements.

    I guess having had a G15 you want another keyboard with all the extra macro buttons, lights etc. I had a G11 which broke a few weeks ago.

    But just incase you want a keyboard that simply works with no extra crap - I got the 6GV2 from
    Steelseries. Mechanical keyboard and absolutely amazing to use. But a lil on the expensive
    side (considering it doesn't have all the extra crap).
    I'm not sure where does it for the cheapest at the moment. http://fnatic.com/shop/categories/keyboards/
    used to be cheapest, but none in stock and the price is higher now than what I paid.
    I got it for £50.

    Had alook at the Stealth version on razers website. Anyone tell me why the system requirements for a mouse include 75mb hdd space!

    Ok know its probably profiling software but it made me chuckle.
