ZIPPY EL-715 Black & White 104 Normal Keys USB Super Slim Electron luminescent Keyboard

 

not really a con, but keyboard is thinner than a standard keyboard, takes a little bit to adjust if you are used to a standard keyboard.

quiet keys. looks good lit or unlit. has a key to turn the light on or off

OK Light Up Keyboard

 

Buy it if you don't wanna pay the extra money for that other more expensive light-up keyboard.

It's a cheap light-up keyboard. The keys are quiet, and the blue light is cool

Makes a slight humming noise when the light is on. Not a huge deal. I have to put my ear 6 inches away from it to hear it over the computer, but in more quiet settings (like when I'm using it with my laptop), it is slightly more noticable. Does not...

Worth the money

 

I order this on a Friday at 4 am and recieved this product the following Tuesday at 12:20 pm. Great shipping!!

This keyboard works great, the white keys help me out when im typing when the light isnt on and the response time is the same as a laptop keyboard. All the lights work. My cat pulled off 2 keys and after I figured out what to do, I had them back on to...

This keyboard is a little different than I though it would be. The keys dont literally light up, a bluish light comes on BEHIND them but it works. The light doesnt really come through the keys but it's still awsome and I've had no problems yet

fine, for less than 60 days

 

I "need" a back lit keyboard. Fortunately Newegg has Adesso and Sunbeam products, as well as other Zippy models to try. Hopefully they will either be bad from the start - so they are returnable, or lat until their breakage is either "natural" or my fault.

My 2nd Zippy EL keyboard. The 1st, an EL-610,developed an internal broken wire where the keyboard and its' cable meet after years of use. This one's light stopped on day 50, and now just gives off a low buzzing sound when I try and use it - all other...

Without a working back light, there's not much of a reason to buy a ZIPPY. Being as it worked for the short length of time that it did, something is either too cheaply made or poorly designed with this model. I suspect the former as EL isn't a...

It's good for it's price

 

Cheap, Lights up, all keys work ( except the A, it makes a different sound like it is broken)

keys are placed randomly like the "/" is by the left alt button ; Why ; I guess that is what you get for a cheap laptop with a light on it ; I wish the light was not blue, rather a white light or something. It just makes me feel like i should go to a...

Where ARE they?

 

Been a NewEgg customer during the times it's counted, and I have yet to be shorted. So WHY is it SO DIFFICULT to find a U.S.-marketed, FULL-SIZE, scissor-action keyboard in the QWERTY layout? Plenty of MAC- and UK-variant diversions, yet I have not...

Sure, scissor-key action, but

Where are the GENUINE 104-+-key ; FULL-SIZE scissor-key keyboards

Consumer review by:

extremely poor quality

 

this keyboard is non-functional after only 1 week of use - does not work at all. Stay clear of this item, period.

nice lights, decent feel

busted and unusable after about a week, very poor quality

ZIPPY EL-715 (SILVER) Silver 104 Normal Keys USB Wired Slim luminescent Keyboard

 

Amazing keyboard, would buy again, and am going to for a new rig right now. Newegg is awesome.

Light ; On/Off ; Laptop Key design

Lights for Numlock, Capslock, etc way too bright. Had to put masking tape on (about 5 layers) for them not to be bright

Consumer review by:

Poor Product Support.

 

Nice keyboard for gaming in the dark

Have 2 that need new power cables after a little over a year of use. I could find no links to warranty info on Zippy web site. Your better off buying something that has better product support

Consumer review by:

Nothing but problems

 

It's a shame Zippy can't back up the cool look of their products with reliability, or good customer support if you have a problem. I have old keyboards that are still working after 10 years of use. It's simply inexcusable for Zippy to tout the...

Looks good

Went through 4 keyboards since buying the first one. They had different modes of failure, but none lasted more then 6 months. Acquiring replacements from Zippy was extraordinarily difficult. The last time I spoke with them, they refused to send me...

Product Specifications

The Zippy EL-715 USB keyboard is a notebook-style full-size keyboard with a twist-with the flick of switch it will glow blue. Behind the 105 translucent keys is a flat sheet of electro-luminescent material-the same stuff that puts the glow in "indigo, " which lights up watch faces around the world. Drawing power from the USB port, the keyboard is intended to be used in environments where there is insufficient light, as well as applications which would do well to have a lightweight portable keyboard at hand. So for example, if you are a sales person who travels around and gives presentations in darkened boardrooms with a tablet PC this could be just the ticket to make misplaced keystrokes (or bad hand-writing) a thing of the past.
