Looking for a good keyboard on a budget.

Any suggestions? Preferably from Amazon.co.uk.

Thanks!

£4 over budget but comes with close to NKRO and a good macro setup.

As above, MS Sidewinder X4 is the best keyboard I have ever used, and I have used a lot.

Gong to buy 2 of them in case I ever break one.

its the only keyboard manufactured this century that has ghosting problems... how the heck can you say thats the best?
one moment you're crouched and backing up, next you're reloading right when a guy runs round the corner and shoots you... hardly ideal for gaming.

You obviously have no idea what ghosting is if you think this has anti-ghosting, cheap £2 keyboards that my school uses have better anti-ghosting than the X4 (as in they actual don't ghost)

Dude, you are going off of old info. You loaded Win7 SP1 yet? It was a OS problem.

Paul Dietz posted that at Geekhack. He used to post here but got rather rudely treated.
