I still can't find a good replacement for my old Microsoft Internet keyboard. Surprising for a Microsoft product my keyboard is the best out there, but stupid corporate people always kill off products too early. Also my mouse is Microsoft Intelli Explorer, the big hand one because my palms are big and this mouse suites my big hand, gaming, and navigationa back and forward buttons in internet browsers. Aside from these two products I hate microsoft.

I WANT SIMPLE TOOLS. Why doesn't the world understand that? See... google is simple, unlike yahoo's webpage, standard keyboards with normal layouts are simple, non-weird shape mouses are simple. Complex, convoluted and outright out of someone's hind is not the way to sell your products...
I agree and it is one of the reasons why I'm still using a Microsoft Basic keyboard. Typing on it feels awesome and it makes the right amount of noise when I'm typing (ie. a lot). I do want an upgrade though and am looking at the G15 which is only $90 at the moment.

I actually love my Dell keyboard. It doesn't have an L-shapred Enter button, but none of the other keys are placed oddly. It's very comfortable too. It's called the Dell USB Enhanced Multimedia keyboard. I love having the volume knob on the keyboard as well. Saves me from having to adjust volume via my speakers.

same.

i love my dell keyboard too. it's compact, keys are pronounced and most importantly allows the middle of my little finger to press left control.

that's something the logitech media keyboard the family computer has. which doesnt have pronounced keys and doesnt have a nice left ctrl.

people on an overclocking forum desiring simplicity and practicality from a keyboard? what is this? we should be demanding more lights! more keys! more features!

If I could overclock a keyboard, I would.

I just bought one of these to replace a G15. It is much better for gaming, you can really feel the low latency key's and the mechanical switches give miles more feedback, wrist rest is dead comfy too

I do miss the G15's screen at times, but the extra frags make up for it.

You know, Dell should just make keyboards. That seems to be the best they can do.

Do they make them? Seems like something an OEM would do, then put Dell's brand on it.

It would also explain why they are, apparently, good.
