    What would it be? I keep coming up with goofy FPS keyboards.

    I wasn't really grasping the true awesomeness of the Optimus until I kept scrolling down to the Quake setup, and then I realized that I want one.

    Worth it if you're a hardcore gamer.

    umm.... I don't know about you, but I spend most of my gaming time looking at the screen, not the keyboard.

    i got one of these, and i love it.

    pretty thin, and not nearly as bulky as the older beige natural ergo keyboard. also, types REALLY quiet, which is why i like it. also, only cost about $45 at best buy.

    but this one seems pretty cool, too...

    according to buy.com, they sell for about $17!!! :eek:

    I jave one of those, you CAN NOT play quake on it. Too squishy.

    I wanted backlighting, but the idea of burning my eyes with bright blue behind the keys (instead of through, which would have made a little sense at least) seemed really dumb. I finally ended up going with a Saitek Eclipse with a low red output that actually illuminates the keys, found at newegg.

    I think the $100 is for the 3 key optimus, I bet the 104 key will be a lot more.

    The Optimus 3-kay is $100 right now, but will be $120 after April 2, according to the store on thier website. That 104-key is awesome, though!
