    "Well keyboards sure have come a long way since the old ps/2 connector keyboards. Now a days keyboards come in so many shapes and style it amazes me what we truly can do with them. Keyboards especially gaming keyboards go all out with full RGB backlighting to extra lcd buttons for macros and full cherry mx switches to give you that gaming edge. But what if you don't want all those bells and whistles, I mean some of those fance features aren't cheap so what about a gaming keyboard that is also a good overall day to day use keyboard as well. Well then the Microsoft SideWinder X4 Keyboard is the keyboard you are looking for, it does feature a backlight and some extra buttons that some gaming keyboards have but it also keeps the familiar windows keyboard layout thus making it an excellent day to day use keyboard as well.

    "Plain as they come, this keyboard is almost as good as one of those fancy gaming keyboards. It has backlit keys to aid you in your gaming, but none of that flashy stuff. I like this keyboard for its simplicity! "

    "The Cherry SPOS DQ9444 is a serious piece of gaming hardware, and it's incognito so I can set it up at work and no one is the wiser, this keyboard is seriously the best gaming keyboard without "gamer" aesthetics that I have ever found. Even better is the dust and spill resistance, as I have a bad habit of spilling coffee around my workspace. Plug and play and easy peasy. "

    "The Key Tronic FSCANKSC01US doesn't look like much on first glance. Actually, it looks like an old 80s or 90s style of keyboard. However, it turns out that this keyboard is awesome for gaming, even without the gamer aesthetics. I highly recommend this keyboard if you don't care about looks."
