The only thing I look for in a keyboard is that it shouldn't make a ton of noise when typing. A lot of reviews do not even mention it

Wow. I think it looks beautiful and defiantly on my list of things to get. My wireless just doesn't cut it for gaming anymore. And I also like the kbs with the semi clacky keys just to know its there. The ones that don't make sound usually feels too soft and mushy when pressed (like some of sony's laptops. Hate those keyboards)
Yup...

Logitech Dinovo. Its a good $120 + dollars though, more than likely worth it from what i've heard.. I dont need a keyboard style like that tho, I would use it in a heartbeat on a HTPC of some sort tho.

To me it looks like OCZ was trying to copy the dinovo but change it up anough to where it wasnt a close to exact replica llolo
Meh.

This Keyboard is another "clone" of Mad-X and Perrix Keyboard:

A beautiful keyboard... but not really a new one.
