Another "need a new keyboard" thread :)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok so I have been using a microsoft 3000 for 3 years now and it's been great, except guess which key stopped working? W. So that's gone.

Seeing as I've always wanted a backlit keyboard, I figured why the hell not. I went to frys and looked at a lot of them, but there were 2 things I did not need: Macro keys, and mechanical(not a big typer). I ended up with the Roccat ISKU - FX which is an awesome keyboard, I just seem to be having a bit of a problem with it. The way the keyboard is laid out, I tend to mis-hit keys and never seem to put my hands in the correct spot, which I've never had an issue with before. The only thing I can think of is the sheer size of the Roccat vs my microsoft.

Can anyone recommend any keyboards that are normal size, backlit, and have standalone media keys(importance in that order)? Thank you in advance! Would like to stay <100.

I'd recommend:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823201054

It has non-standalone media keys (you have to hold the Fn key), but it is backlit, normal sized, and is mechanical. Also under your budget by 1 cent.
