G15 all the way. Love the screen, you guys who say it's useless just aren't using it. I have my cpu and mem usage, voltages, temps, gpu speed and temps/voltages. FPS. Nice to monitor while gaming. I display as much HUD info as I can too and clean up the screen while gaming. Love the left hand macro keys too. I have a million uses for them. passwords to sites where I don't care about sercurity, my name and adress and email etc..
I agree Squeets...the guys that find the screen useless obviously aren't into OC'ng, as I find the "monitoring" functions great while I am gaming, particularly the CPU Core Temps!

I'm lolling at Squeets. Never heard that nick before.

I use everest for monitoring, has G15 support built right in.

Yeah, I'm on the lookout for a generation one G15. I wouldn't have so much of a problem with the amber backlight if it wouldn't clash so badly with the rest of my hardware. I'm thinking of just saving up for one of those clicky tactile keyboards I lust after so much. I could always just buy a lamp :bleh:

Yeah I've been looking at helping the wife replace the drapes nd blinds in the livingroom, but the colors I pick "clash" with the slate flooring and well.....its just not working with the "countertops"....hahahahaha...sorry man I couldn't resist..:bleh:

Saw that G11 Blue at NCIX, DC and Bestdirect.......I think the blue is nicer but I do like the little screen as discussed!:punk:

Saitek Eclipse has been good for me. Great, solid, and no frills. The Logitech solutions have some great features (ie. LED screens) that may appeal to you.

Has anyone here tried the Saitek K140 slimline or seen a review for it? I've looked around, but all I can find are the reviews on NCIX. I've been looking for a backlit keyboard and I think my 6year old logitech cordless elite is on it's last legs.
