Works great

 

the light was not on when i first plugged it in, i noticed there was a sticker on the scroll lock key (on/off button), this was great I hit scroll lock and the keys lit right up. I had no idea there was an on off, I just assumed it would be on all the...

Worked right out of the box, no need for drivers in windows but I will be keeping them for use in Linux. A

Quality issues - don't buy

 

Don't waste your money on this a least until they have sorted out their design/quality issues. I should have paid more attention to the reviews.

Cheap

Exceedingly poor design/quality. 2 out of 2 failures within 2 weeks ; I bought 2 of these. On one, the 2,W,S, and X keys didn't work out of the box. I thought for the price it is not worth the trouble or money of returning it. The second one failed on...

Works great.FAST shipping

 

This is an excellent choice for anyone on a budget.The backlit keys are just a cherry on top of the functionality of a keyboard with good keystroke action and feel.

Cheap.No double keyed letters and no dropped letters.I can finally chat or IM and not have to apologize for lousy spelling that was caused by a cheap keyboard with sticky keys ; The back light is fantastic.I had another illuminated keyboard I paid 30$...

Silver keyboard color.Wish I had seen 1 in black offered as that is the color of my Q pack micro case as well as the color of my 22"lcd monitor

Sunbeam EL-KB-03-SV-U Silver/White 104 Normal Keys 17 Function Keys USB Standard Illuminated Keyboard

 

I was looking for a backlit keyboard for gaming use and given the low price of this unit compared to other lit keyboards it was worth a try. While it is a nice option for light duty and the backlight is very bright and clear the cheap build quality...

Low cost, nice backlight

Backlight doesn't light F-keys. Sticky keys after a while, not built for heavy use

Still kicking after 11 months of many late night sessions

 

would buy again and again for such low price

Easy access buttons across the top, keys are easy enough to register your keystroke, big thing is the light still works~almost a year later

hmmm well if I had to pick on this model it would be that the light is not as bright as it used to be and soemtimes downright difficult to see when you look at it after gazing into your monitors. keep in mind its a year old

The Cardboard Box has more value

 

I would rate this item lower than the worst toilet paper you have used. Shipping costs have gone up and it shows. This keyboard was jammed into a box with no clearance on each end. Sure enough, about 2" was broken off one end.

It is extremely light

Feel of keys is so unusual, typing presents a formidable problem right from the start. The reason it is so light in weight is that it is flimsier than items you get in a crackerjack box

sweet

 

this keyboard is better than what is stated. it could have been a bad batch, i dont kmow but he keys have good responce time. ive only had it for 2 months or so, and i only use the light at night to play my games. if it only last a year its worth the...

small, standard keylay out, works with vista out of the box. light up

the only con is that the num caps and the other light is bright

Great Keyboard

 

Skeptical at first, but ended up very impressed!

Just the right amount of backlighting to see the keys that you are typing. Keyboard has very responsive action, really easy and smooth to type on, not loud or clanky to type on either

The lock lights are incredibly bright, don't know what they were thinking there. The F keys along with the escape key and anything else on that level do not light up

I made a mistake

 

I bought this for a Yellow-Dog-Linux installation. I suppose I will use it when I activate XP_x64 on my sole dual-boot machine. I use Windows usually to test some programs I write for that platform, and not otherwise. As always, learn from my mistake...

It is inexpensive and electroluminescent. The feel of the keys is spongy, but I know when I have typed a character. The keys are full-size, not the flat scissor-style found on many EL keyboards and most notebooks

There is no switch to turn on or off the EL. The windows driver must be used to enable the turnon/turnoff in software with the scroll-lock key. Unfortunately, at least in XP_x64, this means the scroll lock light is on when the EL is
