Thread: Keyboards?

    I guess some of us agrees that some of the older IBM keyboard models rock.

    I've had trouble with keys getting stuck on the 6Gv2 too, but I removed the keys in question, cleaned the key and keyboard. Problem solved. The problem was probably caused by spilled soda containing lots of sugar. I do agree that steelseries 6Gv2 is not the best keyboard, but it is IMHO the best keyboard you can expect to be available at your std computer store.

    Use ps/2 for your keyboard. No reason to waste an usb slot.

    Best Regards

    And it will consume more processing power than the ps/2 port.

    I've had my 7g for a year now, not sure what you guys with fading letters and failing keys have been doing but I play on mine to death and it's all fine.

    I love the concept of the never fade inlaid plastic keys you can get now, but I won't be buying another keyboard any time soon.

    I did nothing but play quake as I usually do. The letters started to fade (the letters on the keys bound to movement) within 2 days - none of these are are "asdw".

    Then I played Dues Ex, and the asdw started to fade after 2 days.

    I've had lots of keyboards, and I have never experienced letters fading (most never fade/disappear) as fast as with my 6Gv2. Not even on the cheapest of the cheapest keyboards have I experienced this. It's no big deal to me, as I know where the letters are (I don't look at the keyboard when I type), but it may matter to others.

    EDIT: I would prefer that the letters didn't disappear though.

    Not having letters doesn't count
    Other Das keyobards have non fade letters though, and their blog shows the different systems you can look for http://www.daskeyboard.com/blog/?page_id=1458

    I have a thermaltake meka keyboard (kb-mek007) that i dont use but its kinda neat that keys are activated once buttons are pressed down about half way. So a keyboard that would detect a key stroke by mere simple touch and no pressing down, would be absolutely mental.
    So if there's a list of keyboard with any such fast switches that be worth a read.
    I think the meka (one i got) is ok but simply dont use it because its behaviour is the same as that of sidewinder x6 and sidewinder is much more comfortable for pretty much all sorts of use. Not just gaming.
