Alright so the site I usually buy from in New Zealand (https://www.mightyape.co.nz/sales/6561/EPIC-Gaming-Gear-Sale/Games/PC-Games or http://pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=c&p=keyboards feel free to browse these sites and recommend from them..) is having a sale on gaming gear and since my keyboard is getting to the point where keys are becoming unresponsive and/or stuck more and more frequently I've finally decided it's time to buy a new one since it's becoming too much of a hassle. Keep in mind this keyboard is probably almost 3 years old since I hate spending and I'm looking at a 200NZD (160USD/125 Euro) budget most preferably.

Currently I am using the Logitech G510 (http://xahlee.info/kbd/igm/logitech_g510-12_keyboard.jpg) which I've loved since the day I purchased it (on special, yes I'm cheap :rolleyes:) and wanted to get feedback from the community on what gaming keyboards you've had/still have and which one you've personally liked the best whether it's mechanical or not doesn't matter to me, I'm just looking to get a decent keyboard I can use for the next few years and get rid of this one probably to my friend who seems to always want my old PC shit since he's always broke.

List of what I'm looking at, at the moment:

I'm also looking to order tomorrow during the day (Friday 10 October for me) and get same day delivery so hopefully I get some fast recommendations :).

They didn't have Chroma Version on sale :(

Also that's in CAD not NZD so I paid roughly 127.47 Canadian Dollars :p
