Looking for a new keyboard. Some of the keys on mine are starting to stick in the down position. I want a wired keyboard and not really a specialized gamiing keyboard although I do game quit a bit. Probably il go with something by Logitech in the under $40 range unless you know something better.

Apart from having keys, it should be comfortable and make intutive sense for y-o-u. Wireless kbds and wireless mice have come of age and dropped dramatically in price, so they're worth a try unless you're positively dead set upon wires. If you can type faster than radio or infrared signal transfers, you'll probably confuse the cpu itself even with wires. Bear in mind whatever caused you to mutter at any kbd in the past. Some of them seem designed to cause discomfort. Some of them seem designed to pretend that one should encounter a learning curve just to use a kbd. Some of them have surplusages of new-fangled keys that sooner or later w-i-l-l fail to do oddball tasks that are actually done faster another (traditional) way in the first place (e.g., speakers usually have little volume knobs, which usually work v. well and faster then fiddling with keys accomplishes). Any kbd loaded with mere marketing gimmicks is probably overdesigned and underengineered.
