I'm looking for a new keyboard. My current one is wireless, and I am tired of buying batteries. I have a lengthy feature list, inside.
I currently own a Gyration Wireless RF keyboard, and it eats batteries. Sometimes, it doesn't work due to interference. I want a new keyboard, wired, and my prime candidate is the Logitech G15
Things I like about the G15:
- A wire
- Multimedia Keys, especially volume spinner
- Illuminated Keys
- USB Hub
Things that are nice, but not absolutely necessary:
- The LCD
- The programmable keys
- Cable routing channels
Things I simply detest:
- The size: 21.5 inches across. My brother has one, and it doesn't fit onto the keyboard tray or desk at his dorm, and that's not cool.
So, MeFites, do you know of a keyboard that has as many features from list A
as possible, without horrendous size problems? I really want to buy the G15, but I keep thinking about how it will hang over the side of my desk and I won't have room for my mouse. Does anyone know of anything better?
Oh, and I'd feel kind of silly paying more than $80 for a keyboard, but I'd consider it.
