In the market for a new keyboard, but haven't bought one in a long time.

Had a look on ascent and mightyape and surprised how many there are to choose from.  

Anyone have a recommendation on a good value for money keyboard?

Don't want to spend too much, but would like to have a few features, like maybe backlit.

So far this is my first choice: http://www.mightyape.co.nz/product/Microsoft-Sidewinder-X4-Keyboard/4718720/

Not backlit, but I like the Logitech MK320. Not too expensive, great battery life, and good quality look and feel.

double check whether the insert/delete/home/end/pgup/pgdn buttons are in the orientation you're after.
Nothing worse than having to use one where they are aligned vertically. hate that so much.
