Got a good one and it's a decent value for the price


This keyboard got bad reviews for key quality on other sites, but I've had no issues. The caps/num/scroll lock keys may appear too bright when viewed from directly overhead, but appear fine when sitting at the keyboard. Also a simple push of a button...

Backlit keyboard with full proper key layout. Slim design for those who prefer flat keyboards, and unfoldable legs for those who do not. Backlight is not too bright, and not too dim. Was plug and play, and while I usually don't find a use for the extra...

Keyboard may be a bit slim for some, and the enter key has an odd arrangement

Almost the perfect keyboard


first, I have no idea what others are refering to when they say the lighted keys are dim. In the daytiime they are a blue glow, when the room is dark they are clear as can be. EXACTLY what I wanted... It has all sorts of function keys, some which work...

Good keyboard


I bought this for my mother and it works great, illuminated light is great, she can see it and have not had any trouble at all. I tested it out myself and no complaints. My mom loves it!

Still working in the dark


It works ok as a keyboard, but the illumination is not bright enough to make a difference in a dark room. Definitely not for those with poor eye sight.

Consumer review by: JC (



Many keys do not work properly. Many keys requier hard and numerous pressing for response. Very poor craftsmanship. Lighting effect works fine, but it's a keyboard first, and it fails miserably at that task. Do not waste your money or time on this very...

The keys are unresponsive, difficult to engage, and actaully jam. The lighting works OK and it's sturdy, but there is absolutely no excuse for the keys on a $30 keyboard to not work properly. Defeats the purpose of having a keyboard that one can not...
