My mac keyboard with numpad broke the cable loses connection and im looking get a new board online, i have had alot of bad luck getting boards it seems as everything is always breaking, and i don't trust wireless cause last logitech i had spent $80 and after 6 months the dam thing was hardly usable battery dieing signal issues keys popping, i do alot of chat online and decent amount of gaming, my major want in a keyboard if for it to be maxium durability i seem run through keyboards like once a year and it gets annoying, other things i want is multi key support , i forget what its called but like i always gotta use multiple keys at same time while gaming or alotta keys in rapid order and some boards ive had wont accept a serten combination of keys making me have game around the boards limited usage, besides that optionally i'ld be nice if it was thin or similar to the mac board as its been one my faves so far besides the cable issue, something that can withstand alotta movement seeming thats what i guess broke the mac board, tho i'm open to ideas on any board as long as the 2 main concerns are there, for pricing i'ld like something at most $80 less is always nice $100 im not sure , and above that i don't wanna do
all helps appreciated, if u can link me where to buy board would be nice, i'ld like be able get it from some where like newegg or tiger or somewhere simular
Personally I have the Microsoft Sidewinder X4, its a great gaming board, non-mechanical though. I have had this keyboard for more than a year now and I love it. Its even got water channels built in, so if you spill on it it all goes through and out slots on the bottom. For a mechanical board upgrade I am looking at the Logitech G710+ but thats way out of your price range.

thanks for reply, the x4 looks kay, i'll look at that, logitech too pricey plus im worried of logitech, well known name but last one i had as i said was just a disaster, it just self destructed badly, was one the worse boards ive had to date
The CM Storm Quickfire Pro is an incredible keyboard and an amazing value (I got it for $65: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...). It seems to have equal quality and more features than mechanical keyboards at $150+ (like Ducky, Leopold, Filco, etc.) . I bought one a couple of months ago, and I love it.
The Cherry MX keys are rated at 50 million operations. The KB has a steel backplate for durability and a 2 yr warranty. NKRO (press infinite keys at once and they are recognized individually) is supported through a PS/2 adapter (not included).
It is not for everyone though. It is not fully backlit. It is not low profile. Mechanical keys feel different and make noise. There are different kinds of Cherry keys. Some don't like typing on the reds, but to me, it is perfection and I gained about 10 WPM with it, but YMMV. I'd recommend reading this article before purchasing any keyboard, esp a mechanical one: http://www.overclock.net/t/491752/mechanical-keyboard-g....
