I don't know if anyone else has this problem with there keyboard but on my microsoft keyboard you can't press more than 3 keys at a time. And in BF2 I find that I'm using alot of the keyboard at one time. So I was thinking about getting something new, Does anyone have any suggestion for a good keyboard?

Those Zboards are supposed to be good for gamers. Might be worth looking at..

Right now I am using a Saitek Eclipse Keyboard Keyboard as seen here http://www.saitekusa.com/usa/prod/eclipse.htm Great Keyboard and the lit through keys are a nice touch for night gaming. Good feel to the buttons and the keyboard is heavy so it stays in place.

We gave a few away when we held a contest a while back and they proved to be very popular. I've never actualy used one myself but i'm certain someone around here must have.

What about the buttons? Can you push more than 3 at a time? On my keyboard you can't.

Do you know the difference between the Eclipse and the Gamer version?

I don't know if this will help you or not, but try going into Start>Control Panel>Accessibility Options. Under the Keyboard tab click on Settings under StickyKeys. Play with some of the settings in there (like the "Turn StickyKeys off if two keys are pressed at once"). This may solve your problem.

Otherwise, I use the Saitek Eclipse. There's a blue glow under the keys that glows through each character. It helps since I play games at night with the lights off.

Difference between the Gamer and Eclipse models: Gamer keyboard also has the blue glow under the keys, but the glow doesn't shine through each character... it only illuminates around each key which still makes seeing the letters/numbers difficult with no lights.
