I found that I'm ok with a simple Logitech (my favourite is the Deluxe 250) for an MSRP of 25€. Honestly the best keyboard I used was bundled with a Dell workstation, sadly it wasn't mine.

At home I mostly play and I have a nice backlighted gaming keyboard, with a couple of awesome functionalities (8 macro button, toggleable electronic swap between WASD and arrow keys, system keys lock) for gaming. Not so good as a general use keyboard, one of the "Windows" keys has been removed and the context menu key has been replaced with its own Fn button. I use them a lot so I curse when using the computer for work.

On the contrary I recently used the worst keyboard I ever had the misfortune of using: an HP that

* was as flat as a wooden board;
* had very short and very creepy key travel;
* but mostly it had its own Fn button at the far low left, where there usually is the Ctrl key. Missing all the usual key combinations and replacing the selected text with a random letter is frustrating. Hulking out levels of frustrating.
