Saitek Eclipse II Illumintated Keyboard review:


It's taken us a while to get our hands on Saitek's Eclipse II backlit keyboard. It was originally announced at E3 this year, and we're only now getting some hands-on time with it. The design hasn't changed that much since the original Eclipse board ;...

Lower price compared to that of other backlit keyboards; three LED color options; easy setup.

No additional keys or customization software; keys feel cramped and mushy; not as fully featured as the competition.

If all you want is a backlit keyboard, Saitek's Eclipse II does that very well. We wish that Saitek had also refined the key feel and added a few other features. Aside from lighting up, it doesn't offer gamers much to get excited about.

GCN Lab Review: Saitek Eclipse II illuminated keyboard


Because the lettering on the keys is transparent, the backlight shines through them, which means you can use the keyboard in total darkness.

Cool backlit keyboard makes your work space feel like a spaceship

Co-workers might think you're a bit “out there,” but who cares

Saitek Eclipse II Keyboard


The Saitek Eclipse II Gaming Keyboard is a very well built, back-light keyboard without a lot of fancy extras. You will not find any head phone jacks or USB ports and it also lacks programmable buttons and therefore any software to program them. So...

Great choice of lighting, Very good build quality, Silent keys, Just a tad bigger than usual keyboards, Good adjustable size and height., Solid grip on surface, Back-light looks great for LAN parties

No headphone/speaker or USB plugs for LAN party use, Angle of light makes it hard to read with the back-light, No CD or special programmable buttons., Manual not the easiest read

Saitek Eclipse II Illuminated Keyboard


I have always loved the feel of the Eclipse Keyboards I've reviewed over the years. Quiet, responsive keys – the layout is always comfortable, I can't find much that I don't like. My only beef with this product would be the amount of light put out....

Review: Saitek Eclipse II Backlit Keyboard


USB Keyboard for big hands

Adjustable backlight in 3 colors. Removable wrist rest. Number keypad

Keys spaced far apart. Huge keyboard. Backlight shines too brightly through keys

When my PowerBook G4 keyboard, barely a year old, started popping keys and sticking, I sought an external keyboard to use, until I have time to send my machine to Apple for repair. The Saitek Industries Eclipse II Backlit Keyboard looked like a good

Saitek Eclipse II Keyboard Review and Prices


The Saitek Eclipse II Keyboard offers excellent soft-touch keys and a decent selection of useful features. Saitek is known more for its gaming peripherals than its input devices, but the Eclipse II keyboard is a bit of both. For gamers and modders, as...

Unique look, very comfortable keys

Saitek Eclipse II Keyboard


Three backlight color choices, Dimmer switch for adjusting brightness, Keys are responsive and have a good, solid feel

Illumination not as bright as previous version, Purple color inconsistent (reddish side lighting), Media keys are not laser etched

One of the more important things for me is the layout of the keyboard. As mentioned before, the Eclipse II has gone back to the familiar 104 key setup.  My old cheap keyboard which I was using prior to buying the original Eclipse, has seen its share of...

Product Specifications

The Saitek Eclipse II keyboard builds on the success of the backlit Eclipse and Gaming keyboards, now offering a choice of colors - purple, red and blue - selectable by the user and adjustable via a dimmer mechanism. The key characters and keypad illuminate making the Eclipse II keyboard ideal for use in any lighting environment. Solidly constructed from high quality materials including a stylish silver casing, the Eclipse II's weighted base and large area rubber feet keep it firmly planted to the desk, while cushioned, silent keys mean hours of fatigue-free use.
