Default Keyboard, logitech or razer

Well I'm looking at these two keyboards and can't decide between them. I'm looking for the most reliable one that's going to last. The computer doesn't see heavy use but I don't want junk. Price is not an issue.

Any input?

This
Newegg.com - Logitech G11 Silver & Black 104 Normal Keys 29 Function Keys USB Standard Gaming Keyboard - Keyboards



or this
Newegg.com - RAZER Lycosa RZ03-00180100 Black 104 Normal Keys 7 Function Keys USB Standard Gaming Keyboard - Keyboards

Thanks in advance!

Out of those two I like the Lycosa, but you can still get a G15 for a little more..

also another nice one I like is the Saitek Eclipse (if you're taking any suggestions)

but gaming keyboards are a kind of gimmicky to me, you could still use a decent $5.00 one and it'll be reliable enough

All right. So saitek is decent as well. Well here is the deal. I have a clunker "dell" keyboard now I found down at the firehouse that I am borrowing and I just need my own. Can you get regular keyboards that are backlit? I'm totally content with the current board if I just had my own, although a quieter typing keyboard would be nice.

EDIT: I just took a look at the eclipse, and it offers the features I asked about. I think i'll be going with this one. Thanks much!!!
