I own a couple of the Logitec K800 keyboards. They are great and very good quality. Here is a demo video:

They come in wireless and wired. I would recommend the wired version.

Well, after some research I grabbed Logitech's G510s. I just could not resist that LCD. Granted, this is a gaming keyboard and perhaps a bit too much for a basic hunt & peck non-gamer like me, but I found a deal that was to die for. And after a few weeks I am quite happy. I also believe I have some nifty ideas to make use of the programmable keys and I just can't stop playing with the full spectrum of color tuning. Also, the streaming RSS newsfeed and sys performance displays are a nice touch. These and a few other on-board LCD applets will now let me take some more gadgets off my desktop.

Caution! : I do not recommend this for a hard-core gamer. These people are brutal on peripherals and would tear thru this device in one day I'm sure. They require 'hardened' mil-spec quality h/w and this ain't it.
