Any advice on the best gaming keyboard - a lot of them look pretty cool but dont appear to be very durable. Any ideas?

I purchased some G15's for friends when they were first released, and theyre still using them now. Theres the G11 which is basically the same keyboard but without the LCD display.

Depends what you like. As i have a G15 keyboard its got some good features LCD Screen , Blue lights underneith Keys ( might be different as there is a newer G15 model out that has Red/Orange )

As it has the extra G keys on the side i don't really use unless i want to use some macro's

Hey mate,

i'd go with the G15. IMO unless you are running macro's which most consider cheating there is nothing different about most gaming keyboards unless you're getting something with one of those weird claws....

Chiefie why don't you just get a comfort curve microsoft or something? I don't use any special features of my G15 apart from the screen on the keyboard.

I'm using a random logitech wireless keyboard, it's pretty sweet.
Would definitely recommend wired mice over wireless tho.
