hello ive lurked on these forums for a while but i thought id actually finally bother to sign up :]
i have the older saitek eclipse red, its been doing me a good service for a year and a half now and it still looks totally brand new, the keys are very resillient, unlike my previous logitech ones where WASD, ctrl, shift, etc are all totally wearing away from endless gaming sessions. also the backlight not only looks really good, but it is genuinely useful if you play in dim/no lights, ive been to many a dark lan and i think its funny to watch other people trying to type by the light from their monitor :] i think the new purple saitek looks so nice im tempted to buy it but i cant really justify it over this one ...for the moment.
I am not keen on the idea of these fancy gaming keyboards. Only yesterday, I plumped for a Microsoft Natural Keyboard 4000. Don't know what that will be like when it comes to a bit of the old WASDing though.
indeed although i could go on to GF bout how cool this one looks when its glowing red, till she decides she wants it, then as the gentleman i am i will just have to give it to her ............. and buy a new one
