Ive had the saitek eclipse 2 for a couple of years no problems with reliability, I passed it on to my 6 year old son when I got a G15, the saitek is standing up to little kids use well. The eclipse two is well lit from underneath the lighting shines through the letters making it VERY good in the dark
The G15 looks cool, Ive only use the additional G keys on occaisions. The maing game I planned on using them for I stopped playing shortly after I got the keyboard, but I had it doint some awesome stuff before I qui. The LCD display can be usefull for the performance monitor although thats been mostly replaced by using a second screen to display more information...
The G15 is a good keyboard, it has lots of "potential" but I just havent really got round to using that potential much yet, no fault of the keyboards there, but in reality the fact that I havent put the extra functions to much use suggests I could have spent my money better
Still it isnt over till the fat lady sings, theres no saying I wont put the extras to great use at some point
