Had to get a new keyboard today. I could not stand my MS keyboard anymore b/c it would ignore keypresses, wasn't as quiet as when I first bought it, function keys were way to small, and it appeared that some keystrokes were sticking or repeating especially the shift key.
I bought a wireless Logitech K800 illuminated keyboard and so far it is pretty nice. I liked my MS keyboard at first but that did not last long b/c of the missed keystrokes and/or repeated keystrokes.
Anyone else own this Logitech keyboard? The backlighting on the keyboard is pretty cool and will be very helpful when the wife goes to bed and I still want to game or code.
Mario F. did you get a new keyboard yet? I think you had the same keyboard as I did and you told me eventually the MS keyboard would fail me and it sure did.
On a side note it is so hard to get a good keyboard for programming nowadays. The new multimedia keyboards insist on making the function keys so small that you can barely find them which makes stepping through code very annoying. Another issue is that various manuf. keep altering the layout of the insert, home, end, del, pgup, and pgdn portion of the keyboard. I try to buy a keyboard that has the generic horizontal layout which is the same layout as my keyboard at work. For a bit I had a keyboard at home that had the vertical layout and I kept hitting the wrong keys at work and at home which was quite frustrating.
