Looking for input on choosing a new keyboard

by thnksqrd / August 5, 2010 12:02 AM PDT

I'd like some opinions on which one to choose. I wanna go with a wired, split ergonomic one, media bells and whistles not too important. What IS important to me is a nice firm snapback on the keys. I type hard and like the feel of a nice, hard, firm keyboard... (insert 70's porno riff)

But, seriously, I want the above, plus good lifetime quality of course. Pricewise I'd say nothing over 50, since we're talking wired here, but if you know one that seems to fit the above but is wireless please include it! So give me your best people! Please, I'm new to the forum and am looking for some honest opinions here. Thanks!

Get a Logitech keyboard or a Microsoft keyboard

Thanks for the input. Currently leaning towards a Microsoft Natural Ergo Keyboard 4000, since the Logitech doesn't split the board in the middle. Anyone out there got one who's also got an opinion?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
