Best keyboard for around £20

Posted a thread a few days ago about best mouse but now I need a new keyboard as my current one's broken.
It has to be wired (had a real bother with 2 other wireless ones)
Media keys would be nice but aren't compulsory
do your worst :P
thanks

Honestly at that price range it doesn't matter much. Any keyboard you get is going to have rubber domes. Any quality brand like Logitech will do.

Does anyone have experience with either the Corsair Raptor LK1 or the Zalman ZMK400G?

Honestly, keyboards are very much a preference thing. Best advice I can give you is to try before you buy, irrespective of price range but even more-so at your budget.

The Microsoft Sidewinder X4 is the best non-mech board I've used but it is slightly above your budget.

Budget keyboards, just my cup of tea
Most gaming boards start at £30, so you might not be able to get a full-on ''gaming'' keyboard, but you can still get a decent product for the price

- Microsoft 600... best board for ANYTHING within £25...

- A4-Tech KL-5... Best compact board under £20...

- Microsoft sidewinder x4... for £30, probably the best gaming board, comes red backlit.

- Keysonic KSK-6001UELX... I've got one of these, all the gaming features you could want, blue backlight and compact formfactor, if you can stretch to £30

Be careful of all the cheapo ''gaming'' branded keyboards from unknown brands in this price range, since all of them are horrible.

I've gone for the Corsair Raptor LK1 for £14, saw the good reviews from before Raptor was bought out and I don't think corsair changed it at all since.
I'll do a short review in another thread when it arrives.
