What kind of keyboard do you use?

I'm looking to get a new keyboard for my machine. But I've had very iffy experiences with wireless keyboards. Sometimes they skip letters, and that's unacceptable. So what do you use?

I use a Microsoft Digital Media Pro and it's pretty good even though there's tons I know that are better. It was a big improvement over the stock Dell keyboard that came with our latest PC.

I have the same keyboard, except take the clock back to 1999.

I just use a standard Keyboard. I junkpicked it from an old HP at work.

I used to own a Saitek Eclipse, the keyboard with LED's under they keys, but it always fought with Logitech products and eventually died on me. Wireless sounds nice but I realized that just means one more thing thats going to need batteries that does not need to be wireless since it never moves.

I use a standard microsoft one. Dont really care too much for the wireless stuff since I'm not actually going for a walk when I want to use my pc. The one vegetto has is made for gamers, especially fps/mmo games. All the keys really are easy to type. Almost natural once you get used to it. Very useful.

You could probably make one yourself.

the 2nd looks like it would take longer to make.

Here it is hooked-up to my PC.
