Yeah, I have the Razer 'BW' kb and it's ok. If I saw the Logi G710 available when I was looking for a 'clicking' KB, I would have considered it along with the others on the market at that time...

I have a Mircosoft X6 gaming keyboard that seems on the face of it to have much more functionality

That would probably be the competition for the logitech one shown here and it goes for around the same price. Not pretty but definitely one of the best available.


I own the merc stealth one around $80, shown here...http://steelseries.com/products/keyboar ... rc-stealth. The larger key pad on the side is excellent for any game.

I would recommend SteelSeries over a microsoft or logitech any day simply due to the customer service. Logitech is horrible at best (owned 2 defective logitech keyboards and couldnt get any sort of replacement or fix, pretty much told that their products are perfect) Razor and Corsair are great brands as well.

I have the smallest cheapest keyboard I could find, which happens to be a Logitech too. A keyboard is hardly used as its mainly a machine for gaming so I just use the G13 gaming keypad 90% of the time.

An expensive full keyboard to me is such a waste when I would literally only use half of the keyboard.

I also have the G13 gaming keyboard and like Rekab I use the G13 for most of my gaming. I use my main keyboard for racing games but I've just got a SteelSeries SRW-S1 Wheel which I now use for my F1 Games.

It works with a gyroscope rather then needing a desk and space for a conventional wheel. check it out:- http://steelseries.com/products/other/simraceway-s1-steering-wheel

If you are in to racing games but don't have the room for a full rig this is a very good compromise and is very is to get use to. I've always been a keyboard guy for racing games but this is much better and I've made the transition over to it with ease.

I have the Logitech MoMo wheel/pedals, but rarely used because of the required set-up/take-down every time.

WAY BACK in the day, I raced with the GodFather of all top quality racing sims, Grand Prix Legends...
