I decided to buy a cheap mechanical after reading your reviews, will let you know how it goes when it comes on Monday.

Which mechanical keyboard? There are two inexpensive ones I know of... The Cherry and ABS are the least expensive.

Hey guys I was wondering if some of you might be able to help me decide on a new gaming keyboard. I'm debating the following:
Logitech G11
Logitech G15
Saitek Eclipse II

The reason I've decided upon these is for my need of a backlit kb, media controls, and programmable keys. I don't need the display of the G15 but it adds a valuable part of monitoring temps.

I've considered going balls out with a G19 or the latest from OCZ but decided I don't want to break $100 with this purchase. Any thoughts to which would be a better board? Thanks!!

I am also using a mechanical keyboard

Mechanical keyboards are very much appreciated by fast typists, because they have a springiness and feel that is not the same as the standard membrane keyboard accompanying most computers.:)
What really distinguishes these keyboards apart from their modern brethren is the feel:p
The positive "snap" or "click" that a buckling-spring or snap-action mechanical key switch makes. The "snap" gives you tactile and auditory confirmation that the keystroke has registered and the computer has received the key stroke. With the better rubber dome keyboards, you'll feel a "pop" as the dome collapses, but that does not necessarily mean the keystroke has registered!

For those like me who grew up with mechanical keyboards, there's something profoundly unsatisfying about typing on even the best rubber dome keyboard. It just doesn't feel right.:shadedshu Add to this the fact that many low cost keyboards omit things like N-key rollover (the ability of the keyboard to sense when multiple keys have been depressed, one after the other, before the original key has been released), and fast typists suddenly find themselves slowing down and making mistakes. And somehow the ability to mute your computer's audio from the keyboard doesn't seem nearly as cool as it did.....
I use this keyboard.... The TVS Gold (Black) Mechanical Keyboard---->:rockout:

Did you check out my review of the ABS M1?

Anyway I'm glad you like your keyboard, but I would appreciate it if you stay away from telling people to buy it! Recommending it and stating reasons it is good, and you've done a decent job of that. Just remember that some people really REALLY like the M1 for the reasons you stated it was horrible.

I recently bought a Logitech MOMO Force Feedback racing wheel, that's a peripheral too right? :D

Seriously, if you don't want to spend money on a G25/G27, the MOMO is the third best you can get.

You playing dirt with it? Got a link? Was tempted to buy a wheel.

Come on man, take my suggestions for what they're worth and nothing more. I'm glad you read my review. The person who now owns that keyboard I reviewed likes it more than any other I've brought him, so it would be unfair to use such plain words to describe the M1. This suggestion isn't meant to squash open discussion, but rather to enrich the content.

I've played GRID with it, just got Dirt 2 and a LAN party tomorrow, so I'll probably be trying Dirt there.

As for buying it, I bought it here: Clicky
Keep in mind that it was a bargain deal at half price (€65) though.

I have an update for you mister binge!

I replaced the busted Razer Lycosa with a Logitech Illuminated. Gotta have my scissor switches.
I also replaced the Razer DeathAdder with a shiney new $12 Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical 1.1a, still my #1 favorite mouse.

|Keyboard: Logitech Illuminated | Pointers: Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical 1.1a (Back to awesome basics) | Headset: Senheisser HD-485 | Wants: Das Keyboard Professional|

You can drop the Revoltec lightboard on my end, I threw it in the bin.
