Default Saitek II...any opinions?

Trying to get my keyboard and mouse setup for new rig. Already have a Mx518 mouse (love it). As far as keyboards go, I decided against the g-15 due to the fact that I don't care for most of the extra features it offers, plus its too bulky.

So right now I am thinking the Saitek II is my best bet. Love the laser etched backlit keys, perfect for when my room is dark. I hear the keys rub off pretty easy, but I can stop that from happening no problem. Anyone have some input on it? Thanks!

i use it...good
as for rubbing off...I would assume only if you are a nasty type person...the kind that eats pizza/fried chicken/various other greasy foods....gets grease on their fingers and doesn't wipe off...and types away.

*looks around*

nice aesthetics and design. Good heft to the kb and tactile response from keys seems perfect to me.
lol

Well good times then. I'm convinced! As for protecting the keys, I am going to put on a layer of clear nail polish to protect them. Can't tell that its on there, and it protects them very well

I've had mine for a couple of months on daily use and I haven't noticed any sort of rubbing off on the keys.

I've been using mine for over a year and my keys still look like new. Even my wasd keys which get the most still look fine.
