Microsoft X6 is worth a look; There's one for sale in the for sale section.

So I was just looking at Razer products, and there's this keypad, the Nostromo... it looks kinda interesting. I also checked out the G13 from Logitech.

These keypads have piqued my interest. Anyone tried any of them?

They save space but are uncomfortable to game on, since the key positioning is not optimal. I'd rather game on a keyboard

If you don't like "mechanicals" and price isn't an option, you will want to try a Topre Realforce board.

For sheer wiz-bangery, you'll want this: http://www.artlebedev.com/everything/optimus/. Never mind that it's mechanical, or from what I hear not that fun to type on. It'll make your Logitech G15 (or any newer Logitech with a screen) seem like a cheap Fisher Price toy. The entire concept of it is pretty damn cool.

Here's the thing about those Logitech screens. They're stupid. I have one on my G13 game-pad. The G13 is not stupid, especially for left-handed gamers like myself who tire of remapping everything to pl;'. However, the screen on it is of very little use and IMHO it looks silly.

Media features -- those can be had on any $20 keyboard. With a Logitech, you're paying for the macros, which can be nice, and for the screen. Since you don't use macros, and since you don't like mechanicals, I say your best bet is to look at ergonomic models. Yes, they take some getting used to, but if you want a truly better keyboard than what you have now (and your hands will thank you later,) take a look at at something like the Microsoft Ergonomic 4000. If you don't want something that big, then look at some of the higher-end curved Microsoft Desktop Set models (like the 7000 or 8000.) They're sleek like the Logitech, and I find the slight curve to be more comfortable than a traditional layout without needing to learn how to type again.

Keep in mind there's a reason everyone pushes the mechanicals. It may require a leap of faith on your part, but once you try one you won't go back.

Some people like the way glocks feel and other people can't stand them. It seems there's a deal on this site where mechanical keyboards are like Jesus and anything else is worth no more than $3 and should burn in a fire and so should the person who uses it.

Hear hear.

That's why I periodically recommend the $10 Newegg Rosewill RK-800 and the most awesome $18 DealExtreme Scissor Switch HHKB Killer. Review Link.

Some people are SO snotty and out of touch with reality.

You can buy 5 of the Rosewills for $50.

You WILL spill a coke or do worse someday to your keyboard.

I already tried to help. I said you should stick with the logitech g series if you're going to stick with rubber dome. They are probably the richest in features and are one of the best rubber domes I have used.

Which model is up to you. I don't what to pick for you since I don't own any of the more recent ones.

People are kinda snobby here.

Scissor switch keyboards are pretty good especially for portable applications like doing system builds.

They have their place, but would you say it's the best keyboard on the market? If you know of any high end scissor boards, I'd actually be curious. I've mostly associated them with cheaper keyboards.

Note to OP: scissor switches aren't really in the same category as the mechanical you dislike, so don't rule them out just because they have "switch" in the name.

Likewise for the Topre. People lump them in the mechanical keyboard category, but they really are quite different from the cherry MX boards that are common. The Topre switch does have a high quality rubber dome.
