    man,if your needing a new keyboard soon then I would SERIOUSLY suggest this keyboard, its on sale and this is pretty much a steal, this keyboard feels really nice, can change the color schemes, has plugs for headset and mic in it, can change music while in game, has 12 extra g buttons on the side... I bought mine for 80, but now its only 55 dollars.

    u can change the color anywhere from red to blue, so anything in between that, basically only pink and purple, I stick with a blue-ish purple, looks kinda like white at times.

    Save your money, this keyboard is built like crap and not that cheap at half price. If you like a real keyboard, only the old farts will get this, get one with micro-switches instead of thin film membrane contacts. Check out the link below for a keyboard that is built like the original IBM systems.

    No doubt thin film membrane keyboards are hardy, but tactile feel is pewp. Try a real micro switch keyboard and get back to me. Once you try it you won't settle for less.

    Honestly, there is some noise, but it is more about a tactile feel of when the button activates. Even the secondary keyboard I use is a cheap Keytronics, same thing minus the LED's as your Logitech, and it clacks just as loudly in a dull manner with no real click. As I said, the older guys will remember the original series IBM keyboards. There was a time on Ebay when no one was making a mechanical switched keyboard and the older IBM keyboards were selling in excess of $300.00. They are that good.

    I still have an old school IBM keyboard ahaha...

    I'm actually looking for a sturdy gaming keyboard right now to be honest. I really do miss the clickety clack of my old school Apple.

    I'm a fan of low profile/shallow keystroke keyboards, they seem more comfortable to me. I'm not too much worried about all the extra features like USB ports and AUx ports on a keyboard. Keep it simple and sleek.
    Here is a sexy keyboard that I'm looking forward to buy a Logitech 920
    14557.

    Yeah, I used to program on old Apple II+, lol yeah a few years ago, and their keyboards were similiar, just smaller footprint. For me, the larger layout of the IBM affords my hands more room and is just more comfortable for me.
