I have a black keyboard that is on a slide tray mounted below my desk top, and it is often harn to see the keys after dark.

What do you guys think of this keyboard?

I've liked Logitec kbs but haven't seen that one.

I tried a wired Saitek lighted kb years ago. It wasn't all that great for me but it was at least ok. But I prefer wireless more (at the time I don't think anybody had a wireless lighted kb due to power consumption) so it's just wasting space now, unless I gave it away and forgot.

Any chance you can just use a small wattage light instead?

Well anyway, just get one at CC or BB and pay cash so you can easily return it if you hate it. Problem solved.

I have a Tivo remote that lights up, and it eats through the batteries real fast

I see this keyboard probably doing the same thing

But I would go for it if you want it though, just stock up on the type of batteries it takes

I don't think it takes batteries, it plugs into a USB port.

I gotta admit those are a lot less expensive, thanks for the options.

I clicked on that 2nd eBay link and this page came up that said:

You sure that's a legitimate page? :D

I own this one:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1530751&CatId=142

It sucks. It is very cheaply made. The concept of a keyboard that lights up in theory is cool but I would make sure that I bought a high quality keyboard. By the way if you don't shop there already tigerdirect is a great place to buy computer stuff.

Thanks for the heads up.

Hey, should I get the 8GB for $599

Or pop for another $100 and get the 16 GB?

All opinions are appreciated.
