i want that keyboard. do you know when they will be on sale?

04-05-2005, 10:22 PM
should be available now, I just googled it and it was avaialble at circum city. Price is a tad high for a wired keyboard at $53 but Im sure thats because its a circum city price. Newegg or other online retailers should have it available for a bit less.

i paid $45 for my mx1000 so $50 for keyboard is kinda high. i would pay about $35 for it. i might get it at the end of the summer and give my KB to my bro. i hate when i play games in the dark and then have a brain fart and forget where some keys are.

It works great, like I said Im using the silver model and I love it at night, I can watch a movie with the lights out and still see the keyboard if I need to adjust the sound\contrast\resolution\aspect ratio of the movie on the fly.

I still am for the cheap $4 beige keyboard method, as they last forever and I can eat food or whatever over it and not worry about it...but this looks interesting for a rig I won't do that on...

I heard you can't see the keyboard letters with the lighting on though...

In the dark ofcourse not, during the day you can turn the lights out and you can see th letters just fine.

I have the Saitek Gamers keyboard. I like mine cause it came with the command pad. The Eclipse is awesome cause the keys light up. Now if they would only combine the 2. :D

dude, harsh but..i finally got it the other day...and , well yeah it isnt the GREATEST,but i like it becuz the lights..plus the keys are like the laptop keys..and i like em' it is okay. :)

05-17-2005, 11:04 AM
well if you like the laptop key setup great, that was my biggest complaint. but like I said if ya got nails that need to be hammered...

There's any illuminated wireless keyboard out there yet??

06-04-2005, 11:26 PM
That would really chew into battery time...

But yeh, most people dont like the feel of laptop keys... Which is how most illuminted keyboards come.
If you really want illuminated keyboard though, just get some EL cable and run it under your keys.

i saw it at CC and played with it for a little bit. i didnt like it. i am soo used to my dell keyboard that every new keyboard just feels weird.

06-04-2005, 11:33 PM
u really need to get a nice new keyboard. Just the fact that u have a dell keyboard and everything ELSE feels wierd scares me. Go out and buy the new Logitech 3100 set... mmmm, i could sure go for one of them.

06-04-2005, 11:44 PM
well i have MX1000 and dell 19" CRT that i use. you know how sometimes old keyboards just feel "right"?
