Default new keyboard..

Well I plan on getting a new keyboard in the next few months.

I am normally a Razer fan boy but some other keyboards have cought my attention.

1) Must have backlighting

That is pretty much the only must.

I was looking at the Razer Lycosa which i know some of you have, or the Logitech G110.

Which would you recommend?

Are there any new boards on the horizon?

I would prefer it to be kind of smaller. That is my main problem right now. All these keyboards are like hella large. I will go large though if I must. Not a huge deal.

Lycosa is alright but don't get the "Mirror" Edition.

^ I like the looks of that one also. I wonder how durable it is though?

I really wanted the DKTBoard but it is discontinued and I can't find so much as a used one.

Metal keyboards are really cool. But rare with back lighting. I think I would rather get the g110 as it is the same price but with macros.

That is insane! Price tag is hefty though. Looking for $100 or less.

Deck makes a sick keyboard. That is a good investment at only $169...I'm sure it could handle some rage thrown at it... :P
