Was planning on switching to the thin illuminated keyboard model you mentioned when they were on sale for $30-$40 AR, but decided against it because the F1-F10 etc are not lit.

Do you typically press/mash the buttons very hard? As in someone who breaks .07 or even .09 lead in mechanical pencils easily? Just kidding.

To answer your question, Logitech customer service is solid. I bought my logitech z-5500's on craigslist for dirt dirt cheap(seller won them in an FPS tourney), called up logitech because i was having issues w/ the control module, and they sent me another module within 7 days.
Well, my GF always tells me I type too hard on her MacBook

I've dealt with Logitech customer services before and found them to be brilliant, so hopefully they can help me out again.

And while I agree, if you don't want one the just nab another one from Logitech or buy a new model.

Check out the Razer Black Widow. Its a solid keyboard.
Its ~80USD and good quality. Im not sure about pricing in the UK though.
A backlit Razor Widow is... £122. Well over double what my Logitech Illuminated cost me... and I thought that was a lot.

Alright. Thanks for that. Now I know.
Logitech is amazing, and im in the same boat, My Fiancée always tells me "Jeez you type so hard."
Im nearing being in the market for a new keyboard as well.

most of them have media keys via a fn key secondly you could map the media keys to your numpad like i did. Reasonable is debateable. set a price range, ebay will be of help too.

Well, I would hope not to spend any more than £60.

There's a few widows on ebay for 75$.
Keyboardco.com has some filcos for 90 at the lowest, but out of stock.
I don't know of to many places to buy stuff in the UK so yeah.

£90 is just way, way too much to justify spending on a keyboard. I'd rather buy some nice clothes for that amount.
