    This is a for work - not gaming!

    My work keyboard is a wireless logitech, lasted some 6 years and now has a case of sticking keys, so I need a new one. I really liked it, thought the key action isn't the greatest. It has been through millions of keystrokes.

    I have a G5 gaming mouse (both work and home), I want to keep that.

    So I'm looking for:

    • Wireless and responsive
    • (USB and PS2 capable)
    • Assignable hot keys
    • Dedicated volume and playback buttons
    • Great feel (for lots of typing)
    • Intergrated wrist-wrest
    • Black (nice not to see gunk that builds up)
    • Under $100

    Anyone have any "passionate" suggestions? I plan to stop at staples to try some out. I am partial to Logitech.

    Although not < $100, definately a slick keyboard

    I am highly passionate about the Logitech DiNovo Edge keyboard. It is USB only, but has a wristpad, extra function keys, volume slider (touch sensitive strip), and is in a piano black finish with nice orange LEDs. It also has a tracpad and works very well when holding it for tracpad navigation and mouse button clicking. You can find more information at:

    and of course the logitech website: http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/keyboards/keyboard/devices/192&cl=us,en

    The price is listed as US$199, but more than a year ago I found it on Amazon.com for $179. I would imagine it can be found for less than $150 now. As for OS compatibility, I have not had any problems using WindowsXP, Windows Vista (32 or 64), Linux, or Mac OS X (Leopard).
