    I got a Zboard before they even came out in the US from a Zboard rep at a HUGE lanparty I went too... I kinda liked it at first, but... I hate it now.

    Whats a cheap keyboard with "soft" keys that dont require a ton of pressure to push down? I use to work at Bestbuy, so Ive tried just about every keyboard they sell, along with the display keyboards... the only one I ever really liked was silver and it was made my BenQ. The buttons were very "soft"...

    Mac keyboard, or if you can afford it, the Logitech Elite.

    The best 2 keyboards on the market, bar none.

    Pretty much any peripheral with the logitech logo on it is fine by me. Logitech Elite keyboard is really nice.

    Another vote for the Logitech Elite.

    Vote for Elite, and I'd highly suggest grabbing it on Ebay from JustDeals. You can get it for $15 or $20 new shipped rather than $40 or more elsewhere.

    Pretty much all the keyboards these days seem to be pretty soft to me.

    I actually wouldn't mind something a little more solid. Not quite the clicky IBM M, but at least independent keyswitches with a little strength to them.

    Any help in the opposite direction?

    I just ordered one of these about 20 minutes ago because I had heard many good things about it. If it's as good as most people seem to think, I'm sure I'll love mine, too. ;)

    I've used it quite a few times (don't own it, though) and it's awesome.

    Ok, I can officially say I really like the Saitek Eclipse! It's a very nice keyboard and the backlit keys are readable in low light or no light. The keys are quiet and have a nice feel to them.
