I'm looking for a new affordable keyboard, but I'm really having troubles picking out one because there is a ton of models and very little word about most of them. I would like to pass on the mechanical ones, because of both the price and the noise, so I guess it's a decent rubber dome keyboard that I'm looking for. As for the special features, it needs to be backlit, solely for improved visibility in the dark, so it doesn't have to be RGB or have any special effects, and I also want one with the num pad. Anything beyond that is a nice to have, but not necessary. Any ideas? I've come across Azio L70, which gets recommendations for the feel and performance, but many people are complaining that the key caps start flaking after just a few months and in time the keys become unreadable. Also, CoolerMaster Devastator 2 and 3 have caught my eye with some kind of hybrid key design that mimics mechanical keys but, while many praise them, many also dislike them and say that they'd rather use normal rubber dome keyboards and apparently they are almost as loud as MX Blue switches (although apparently the Devastator 3 ditched the "mem-chanical" keys, yet managed to remain noisy). EDIT: I've just noticed, 10,000 posts.
