    So my regular keyboard port died, and thus I'm looking for a USB keyboard... preferably something pretty and gaming-oriented. Right now, I'm leaning heavily towards the Logitech G-15, but I figured I should ask around a bit, so here I am!

    Oh, and my price limit is basically $100.

    I like the looks of the newer one, but you won't catch me spending 100 bucks on a keyboard

    I've had this keyboard for a year now and it's still as springy as it was out of the box. None of the lettering has worn off either. Four of my friends have used this keyboard and had me order one for them right away. Such a steal at $15 too. Then you could take the extra $85 and blow it somewhere else.

    I have the original G15 (blue lights) and it's awesome. A bit big but I've got the desk room. The extra keys are nice if you need them for games. Personally, I use the keyboard extras for non-gaming uses. Like the LCD/controls seeing and playing my music in the background. Seeing who joined the channel or is talking in Vent. or Teamspeak. etc

    The new G15 (same model name) is smaller overall, less buttons on the side and orange instead of blue backlight.

    I've had the pleasure of owning an Ideazon Merc II keyboard for over a year now, and I simply love it. You should really check it out. Great touch, feel, and amazing functionality. It may take awhile to get used to, but once you get into the feel of it it's definitely worth it.
