    Hey,

    Going to order a new Keyboard tomorrow, but can't decide on which. I've narrowed it down to:

    Saitek Eclipse 3 - Very good looking, i have an Eclipse II now, and like it alot.
    Logitech G11 - People seem to like the G1* series, but i think it look abit blank.

    Which do i get?

    Didnt realise the G11 was just a de-LCD'd G15 Mk1 :rolleyes:

    I prefer the Eclipse II to the III, lol.

    If it was me I'd stick to the Eclipse II, otherwise if buying again, I wouldnt be without my LCd screen.

    I'd probably pick up a second hand G15 again

    If you're not bothered about the LCD get the G11, from what I can see it is identical apart from the LCD.

    Just found the G19 on pre-order for £143.74! :eek:

    I got rid of my G15 to Alex because it was too big and got his Eclipse (rev.1 + monies) and I love it - im assuming that the newer revisions are even better, so id say the eclipse :toast:

    UK sucks for keyboards can't get any mechanical ones (steelseries 7g, gigabyte gk-k8000, ABS m1, ione scorpius m12, das ultimate) well you can get the steelseries lol but it's the most expensive one. I would go with saitek only because they don't advertise tactile response they know better :)

    yes alex, the keys on top that control the voulume, media players, cyborg mode on and off are heat senstive to turn up the volume you run your finger across it and drag the vuime up and everything the lights and all the built in function of the keyboard are heat sensative
