Cheers for the replies guys- I hadn't considered the G11 up to now but it looks real nice for the price, read a review or two comparing it to the Eclipse II and it seems to compare favourably, being called less "clicky" and having deeper, slightly stickier key-presses which is what I want tbh cos I do bash the keys quite a bit and like to know that it's either pressed or it isn't. Also the lighting doesn't look to bleed through the key-gaps as much, which seems pretty decent.

Funny when you think you've got your mind made up then all of a sudden you havent a clue lol.

Thats exactly how I was, but then I found the G15 rev1 cheapish, so I got that instead of the G11.

Gotta be another vote for the G15 rev 1,no spotty keys around here,think they sorted that out ages ago,i use it alot and have no wear what so ever

as said can be had for a decent price nowadays and imo looks better than the rev 2 orange one.

the lcd and g keys are good too.

Raging.

whatever you do dont get Saitek Cyborg. Got that to replace my Saitek Eclipse II, which i killed by spilling some juice on. Anywho, the keyboard is only good at night when you cant see the tackyness, the hole thing is a piece of tack plastic. i hate the chrome keys, good thing i replaced most of them (apart from space) with normal black ones from my dead Eclipse II. One thing i love about this keyboard is the range of colours, i never thought how cool the backlit green would actually look. But in theory i wish i would have gotten myself G15, v2 though as i think the blue backlit keys attracts way too much of attention, causing eyes to get tired quickly and basically have red pulsating veins all over

Get a G15 rev 1. Have had it for about a year now, all the keys are still perfect and the LCD is awesome.

I love the lcd, even RealTemp dumps a readout on it so I can watch it whilst gaming

Got a few marks on mine tho >.<

I have a G15 rev. 1. Lovely thing, but annoyingly hard to keep looking nice, and my lcds are starting to fade (it is 3 years old mind you)

I brought an Eclipse II last night. Managed to get it for £19.99 through the Price match at PC World.

I've impressed with it, nice sold weighty build, only thing i don't like is the fact that some of the lights stay on when the PC is off, though you can just dim the lights all the way off to solve it.
