    Any recommendations?

    Any which one you’re comfortable with?

    If you’re prone to carpal tunnel, you should look at those with wider keys.

    I have this one: http://gaming.coolermaster.com/en/produ … ds/octane/ (I didn’t like the mouse, so I gave it to Nory)
    Biggest complain is that it’s still a bit loud for a membrane keyboard.

    Stay away from chiclet keyboards if you value precision in your gaming, though.

    Right now I have the G510, but Russo up and dissappeared so the g15 stuff no longer works. I will look at that one.

    I bought the Devastator from amazon for $27; you can’t change the colors (mine is blue) but at purchase you can pick blue, red, or green. not as great as the octane, but we’ll see when it arrives.

    One of my buddies (who is a full blown Winbro-AMD-Graphics-Rulz0rz kind of person) has one of these:

    Once you get used to it, that side keypad is really nice for FPS.

    Wonder how it would do in Linux?

    It works, but not completely. Most of the keys on that left side pod just map to normal keyboard keys, ie space, ctrl, arrows, f1-12, etc. There are some macro keys at the top that won’t work without the software to program them… which is Windows only.

    Had one of those liked it, but it does not light up for playing in the dark. I also killed mine wore out the keys.

    So, I got the CM Devastator and in linux (or at least Ubuntu) in order to get the backlight to turn on; it says to use the Scroll Lock which translates to running:
    xset led on / off
    instead. Just fyi
