    Looking for a good keyboard.


    Looking for a good keyboard, I have a saitech eclipse 3 I like it and have enough spare parts to keep it going for awhile unless the cat decides to spill my drink into the keyboard...again...

    Anyway I want something lighted with at least blue and red backlighed AND USB 3 ports. I have found one or 2 Logitech keyboards with 1-2 usb ports but not much else. Anyone even make a USB 3.0 keyboard?

    Thanks for any help guys!!

    Don't have much to offer except I've not yet seen a keyboard with USB 3 ports. Keep in mind that the keyboard itself has to support/use USB 3 ports on the computer, the USB ports on a keyboard function as a hub. In the grand scheme of things having USB 3 ports on a computer is relatively new, maybe last 3 to 4 years.

    Thats what I feared, plus you do not see alot of keyboards with USB2.0 pass-through/hubs so I guess its wishful thinking on my part. Currently I am torn between a large print 3 color keyboard, the cyborg v.7(lack blue backlight though) and the Logitech 510s or G19. I like my eclipse 3 and all but one I replace keys one more time I think I will have to buy parts. T and the space bar are a bit faded. Other than that and it glitching out when I move it once every now and then (hits pause,play and forward or backward media keys). I guess I am no real hurry but if the board dies in this one uhg I'll just go ahead and buy a new one rather than parts...
