The Filcos are USB, but have the PS2 adapter. I believe PS2 is needed for certain features like full NKRO.

The only people I hear complaining about the G15 are those that claim they need mechanical keyboards. Thus, the problem is you, and not Logitech. If the average person can use the G15 for years without problems or signs of degradation then indeed it is the way you use a keyboard that is the problem.

Just because you need a mechanical keyboard for whatever reason does not mean it is the company's fault. My point is that clearly it is your abnormal usage patterns that are the issue, and not Logitech, so blaming Logitech is unfair regardless of what you want to believe.
There's a difference between "without problem" and "optimally". Just because a rusty old Ford pickup will get you from point A to point B, that doesn't mean a Bentley won't do it better.

Well, looking at everyone I've seen get one, if I had to estimate the ratio of people who liked it vs people who regretted buying it I'd say it's about 100:1. So I'd say it's pretty good. But I've never tried it myself, I'm too busy buying other stuff

Most of them these days are both USB and PS/2. But you can find them for pretty much any interface ever used in history: AT, XT, ADB, Sun, WYSE, IBM 3104, and so on.

Reviving old thread maybe ? Well first of all, wassup im kinda new to OCN aside from that, I currently own a g15 and wanted to swap since its playing tricks on me sometimes, i was thinking of going with the CM series of mechanical keyboards, red backlight and new cherry mx brown sounded like a very good deal. Any suggestions, counter proposals, trolling attempts ?

I do have a great experience with Razer BlackWidow Ultimate as well, but it is a little hefty, price wise. Mechanical keyboards in general aren't cheap, though. It's withstood my abuse, lol.
