hmm why wireless....other then the obvious fact of no wires.....because for serious gaming, the best performance comes from wired keyboards like saitek eclipse or logitech g15

MY friend was using a Microsoft wireless keyboard for gaming before he bought his Saitek and it sucked so much. The W key would stick and screw him up all the time.

Diiiiddddd s-s-s-someone s-s-say S-S-Saitek Eclipse? Those keyboards have their keys wear out after 2 months. I've been typing on this generic Dell keyboard worth $10 for 3 years now. Works perfectly. The G15 is just too big for my purposes. Meh. And rather expensive.

I'd like some backlit, wired keyboard with nice, durable keys, but I doubt it's gonna happen. Things are made nowadays to be broken. So you buy them again.

you don't need special keyboards for it to be a gaming keyboard, theres no difference between them and other keyboards other than lights and some extra keys. get a cheap logitech keyboard. and you'll be fine

thats true....i just wanted to get my point across that wired keyboards work better then wireless for gaming. i dont have a logitech or saitek, i use a standard black lite-on keyboard and it works fine.
