Consumer review by:

Not great but it works


EL backlight blinks once every so often, flimsy case, not true laptop slim keys, SUPER BRIGHT caps light, covered mine over with black electrical tape.

Consumer review by:

Get something better!


The board does light up but thats about it!

The keyboard lies terrible flat on the table even with the little supports deployed.


Consumer review by:

Awesomely Disappointing!!!!


As they stated, it does indeed light up.

The keys stick, many times I have to press them very hard to make sure they register.

As many mentioned some keys are very stiff.

stiffest keys I have ever seen on a KB...if that doesn;t bother you its ok if you want something you won't have to box with spend a little more money.

illuminates well but is not blinding ; Price is reasonable

As many mentioned some keys are very stiff. I about have to use a sledgehammer for the W key ; If you shut off the machine before you shut off light, then keyboard remains lit up. Unless you unplug it or restart machine and shut it off first

Consumer review by:

Decent Keyboard, good price


Cool Looking Keyboard, keys feel good, Backlight works great.

Num lock, caps lock, & scroll lock lights are very bright, they overpower the key back- lights.

Decent Keyboard, good price


You get what you pay for. In this case, on a scale from 1 to 10, I give it a 5.

Cool Looking Keyboard, keys feel good, Backlight works great

Num lock, caps lock, & scroll lock lights are very bright, they overpower the key back- lights. Some of the silver paint on the keys has imperfections. If some of the multimedia keys are pressed too quickly (volume), system comes to a halt and freezes

Consumer review by:

Low End KB for Low End Price


Keys light up, useful function keys, cheap price tag.

Keys are STIFF, this is not a laptop feel as advertised.

Consumer review by:

great keyboard,great price


i was scared about buing this key board because its off brand, but if it works normally its a great key board.

great key board low price, keys look really nice, very slim. keys press like a laptops, they are shorter than an advrege keyboard. plug in and play what more could you want

the only thing i dont like about this key board is the function buttons at the top are hard to press sometimes
