I use the wireless POS that came with my comp that cuts out ever 5 or so minutes...

My only issue is that its wireless, I like having a cable.

Like many setups here, it is useful if your opponent doesn't move and you get 4 Ts in a row.

I don't really care what keyboard i play on at all.

The only time I was surprised was when I played on an apple keyboard. The keys are pretty thin so it seemed like i was able to respond a lot faster. I don't really see any other benefits to other keyboards.

And you know what they say, there's only one thing better than polling at 1000 mhz.

That is the keyboard I use, and yes, I use those microscopic arrow keys. I am considering moving to PL;' as a replacement for them, but that won't happen immediately. *Changes keys in NullpoMino.*

I need a keyboard that, obviously functions well, is quiet (no fxcking clacking keys).

50 bucks is my ceiling. (I'm an intern, fxck off)

Suggestions?

Is it true that PS/2 keyboards perform better than USB ones? I found this off of steelseries 7G website:

QUOTE

USB OR PS/2?
We absolutely recommend using the PS/2 connector when possible. First,it will give you total freedom with no limit to the amount of simultaneous key presses. And, equally as important, using the PS/2 may just improve your overall gaming experience.

When you use a USB keyboard your computer is actually using CPU time polling your keyboard. The higher the polling rate the more CPU time is used to perform the polling. And because of the built-in debounce rate found on any quality keyboard, any polling rate above 200Hz is simply a waste of CPU time and really just a result of p?intless marketing hype.

Unlike USB keyboards a PS/2 keyboard isnít polled at all. The keyboard simply sends a signal to the computer as key presses are made, which causes a hardware interrupt, forcing the CPU to register the signal. The 7G is built with a PS/2 connector as standard, but we also included a PS/2 to USB adapter in the box. The choice is yours.


I've been using my USB connector for my keyboard, but after this switched back to PS/2 mode. What do you guys think?
