Just got the new Logitech Illuminated keyboard. Very solid and elegant. The Razor model
"Lycosa" looked cool but user reviews were bad with lots of failures.

I was thinking getting a new keyboard and undecided between a few makes, one of which was this one. Good to have a feedback. Does the keys have tactile of any sort, coz i don't quite like mushy/plasticky feel of many laptop type keyboards.

Nightwatch...I'd say the keys have a shorter push distance and a very
solid feel to them. It is slightly different for gaming (not much) as the
position of the keys is correct but somehow slightly different. Can't
put my finger on it exactly (no pun intended). It's very thin yet has a good weight to it and seems of high quality. The keys are laser etched and the white light is only seen through the letters themselves. It can be slightly elevated from the back. Very nice.
NewEgg had it for $65 w/free shipping. The palm-rest is rubber coated and not slippery. I have huge hands so it will take some
practice for me.

If you can't find that the logitech media keyboard 600 is a nice keyboard too. Its your standard no frills affair but its solidly made, has lots of cool buttons ( :d ) and the keys are neither spongy, plasticy or clicky, just soft and pleasant to type with.

I think they are refering to the fact that your bones will be bare cause you will have to use the food money. :-)
