I like how it doesn't have the accursed windows key between the left control and alt keys. Very nice touch.

Looks exactly like a Razer Tarantula, but a heck of a lot cheaper!

Looks cool! The windows key is a great selling point. I need a new keyboard.I got a nice microsoft keyboard and spilt a drink on it and killed it. Been looking ever since then because I had my gripes with that board. I buy my keyboards from local shops because a have to type on them first. I'll let the shopkeep know about this one.

Hi All

I'm interested in this Keyboard to. Presently, I'm using a IBM Model M Keyboard & I have to say that it's the best Keyboard I've ever used. It allows multiple keystrokes without a hitch. In addition it doesn't have the Windows key either. While they are somewhat pricey, I think they are well worth the investment. They are built like tanks & have Buckling Spring Keyswitches that give great Tactile & Audio feedback.

Here's the link for those who might be interested.
