In the market for a mechanical keyboard

I'm looking into buying a mechanical keyboard to replace my Logitech G15 Refresh. I love the G15, but depending on what's going on in my life I can spend 10-14 hours a day on my computer and my G15 is starting to give out a little bit. It's still working fine, but i've been noticing that the tactile response from some keys is feeling a little different (likely due to wearing out I guess). Anyway, considering i'm doing an application programming major, I spend more time than ever furiously typing for hours on end, and I want to get a much more resilient keyboard (I also spend a looottt of time playing video games too, it's not just programming stuff :P).

The problem is that there are two things i'd really loathe giving up on a keyboard - Media controls, and backlit keys. Especially the backlit keys, and the only mechanical keyboard I can find with these is the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate - and i'm not a fan of Razer. I've had so many issues with my Razer Copperhead, and the warranty turnaround time was in excess of 4 months, so i'm just not that keen on them anymore, but it's still a possibility.

So really i'm looking for some advice about mechanical keyboards. I'm used to the LCD on the G15, but all I ever use it for is for keeping track of what song i'm listening to, so it won't really be missed a lot :P

Edit: Does anyone know anything about the quality of WASD custom keyboards? They seem pretty cool and not too expensive considering you can change most things about the keys. www.wasdkeyboards.com
