  • "Close, but not quite..." by manack on 11/1/2013
    Overall: 1.5 out of 5

    I like my office dimly lit for intensive coding sessions, so I have been looking for a reasonably-priced illuminated keyboard. I bought this one, but it's going back, and here's why - defective keycaps. Specifically, the letter "J" is missing, and a second "U" is in it's place. It's off visually, and the "U" keycap doesn't have the little raised nub that the "J" would have, to locate the home row for touch typing. It's making it rather hard to type, actually.

    There's a general cheap feel to the whole thing, which I can live with given the price. The keys are rather short, which takes some getting used to. And the graphics on quite a few of the keycaps (especially the number row) are pretty slipshod - misaligned and not well printed. I expect that they will fade or wear off fairly rapidly.

    On the plus side, I found the red illumination mode to be both pleasant and effective. Blue, not so much. And the various media buttons do seem to produce keycodes that I can map to do useful things - if I was going to keep this unit.

    Do note that this is a USB keyboard. Even though it comes with a little USB-PS/2 adapter, it doesn't seem to work in things like my PS/2 KVMs. It does work as a straight USB keyboard, though.

    All-in-all, I did expect a *bit* more quality for the price (and factory quality-control).
