The letters A & V on my tarantula are fucking up pretty bad, I need to press them with superhuman force for the letters to come out. It's a year and a half old too, so no warranty for me. I hate dome keyboards ~_~

I was thinking of the Das Keyboard ultimate, what do you guys think of it?

But I live in Singapore, the shipping costs would kill!
Was looking for a non-dome based keyboard. I have looked into alot of other keyboards but it seems that there are only a few mechanical ones. Gonna get Das Keyboard if no one posts horror stories about it. XD

Thanks for the suggestion though guys. :toast:

I agree with the Saitek, my brother and a friend of mine both have had them for over a year, fabulous keyboards. Kinda loud on typing...

My preferred keyboard is this though:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823174010

They don't make my actual one anymore but this is very similar.

It's beast!

Why would you wanna pay 135$ for a keyboard that has no key legends or special features at all?

There's a new logitech keyboard I used at work yesterday, I don't know the name of it, but it was wavy, unlike the dome (which I hate) it was extremely comfortable and I fell in love with it. I'll probably buy one when my Digital Media Pro kills off.

Still, don't spend $100 on a keyboard. They all do the same thing.
