Default Time for a new gaming keyboard change!

I'm switching from a Steelseries Zboard and is looking for a new gaming keyboard. I often change keyboards every 3 years or so. So anyone got any recommendations?

Price Range: $50-$130

What about this Gaming Keyboard G510? Anyone have anything to say about it or can totally recommend something else?

I use the G510 myself. It is good I find, keys feel nice and soft. It is similar to the G15 that I switched from. The differences on the positive are that there are more Macro keys, you can change the back light color to anything you want, and it has a built in headphone and mic jack USB converter, (which is good, because I lost my old one) and separate mute buttons for the mic and to the headset.

The only downside with the G510, is there are no USB ports, where there are 2 on the G15. Other than all that, they are pretty much the same.

Haha, yeah, was nice as I used the right one for my mouse's wireless receiver, but now I have to actually use the little extender thing it came with.

I have a G11 and though it's really nice and bright, it's way too big with the extra 18 macro keys. It feels awkward having my arms so far apart and sometimes I run out of real estate and hit my mouse against the keyboard. So I'm looking to downgrade to something smaller. I've been looking at some Razer particularly this one: http://store.razerzone.com/store/raz...oryId.35156900

Not as many macro keys but a lot more compact. Check 'em out.

I've had a few razer keyboards. I found the keys are too low making my hand position uncomfortable.

As for the logitechs, I found the keys were too small and compact. I'm still on my Saitek Eclipse II keyboard. I plan on getting my 3rd Saitek Eclipse II when I run this one to the ground.
