Well, I use the Saitek eclipse and love it. It is the best keyboard I've ever used. It's quiet/comfortable, you have basic sound muting/volume and lighted keys you can turn off and on.

Wireless is great if you love batteries.. you can get rechargeable, but it's a pain when it craps out on you while gaming
