What keyboard is good w/ PS2 online gaming?

I've looked at the Sharkboard for about a week or so now. It seems that it's cheap and it's not afraid to hide that fact. I've heard it isn't really put together well or made to last.

I certainly would like to have a keyboard but I hate to spend big bucks on one when i might not use it that much. I don't need anything top of the line yet.

I was wondering what some of you have. The Sharkboard is only about 16.00 at one place so it is very tempting.

I did see there was another thread about thos topic lately but it was kinda weak.

I just can't stand typing in the info or being left out in the lobby or when in a room. I just see it as a time saver now and then. O is nice for in game but I need more than that.

I have a shark board and I like it. I use it mainly for entering codes into my gameshark.

I bought the sharkboard for $20 at Best Buy. It doesn't appear to be the highest quality keyboard, but the price is good and it matches the PS2.

I recently just bought a sharkboard and I think it's fine except for one flaw. The cord is too short. It should be at least as long as the controller cord, but it's only about half that length. I specifically bought it instead of a computer keyboard thinking that the cord would be longer, but I was foiled again.

I just bought a regular $10 USB Keyboard. It works just fine for me. I considered buying a wireless keyboard, but just couldn't justify the extra price.
