There's basically a few groups of keyboards. Traditional, wireless, Gaming, Mechanical, Mechanical Gaming. Generally the deeper in you go the more expensive it'll be. Generally.

I play on the couch, i have a Z Board and its so big, also, i have the mouse on a serving try as the mouse mat is to small, so i need a smaller set up, i see the post on the belkin laptray but thats to small.

Tonight was the foirst time playing with the Xim3, was very good but i was getting Pawned as i was getting confused with the keyboard, also in BF3 when i went into a tank i didnt have a clue on how to fire it as my LMB made it go forward not fire? i got a lot of learning to do   :-[

Back to the keyboard, Something small, i see on here a "Stick" controller, who make that?

Thanks for your replies  ;D

Best is my N52te mod, beyond any discussion, at least if you prefer the stick movement over WASD. Check it out in the tutorial section.

Absolutedly! A keyboard with red cherries I use those in my mod also. Odin knows them all by heart ask him which one to buy if you want a regular keyboard. Wont be cheap though. Amazon Noppo chock, filco majestouch, Corsair Vengeance K60 I think not sure about the K60.

Yes the K60 is red cherry and costs 85 Euro and thatís a very good price!

Thanks for all your replies, the mech keyboards are too big for my couch arm rests, the Logitech 13 looks good and been looking at the video reports on You tube, im getting mixed reports on it, some say its @#$% others say its really good, i have also seen the Razer Nostromo Expert Gaming Key Pad, does this work with the XIM3 ? i have looked and lloked and im affraid i have to have a small gamers pad like the G13 or Razer Nostromo Expert Gaming Key Pad , are there any others on the market as space is a premium on my living room couch  :o also who here has the G13 can you give me a low down on it, i will be using it for BF3 and who has the Razer Nostromo Expert Gaming Key Pad if that works on the XIM3

Thanks all for the replies i do appreciate them all  :)

mechanical keyboards are of much better quality + also a lot more precise

for example i currently use this keyboard which consits out of cherry red mechanical switches

much better than any rubberdome 200$ keyboard :)
