Great for typing at night


The light is great to type at night.

The Thinness is bad to have when there aren't and jacks in the back to elevate it more.

Not so good for gaming


I am going to give this thing another shot and keep it for about a month, if its stil causing me problems at that point, I'm going back to good ole trusty keyboards that register when its pressed and never stop.

I like the look of this keyboard, the quiet keys are nice. The light is a nice feature but not as useful since the keys have a slight dark spot in the middle of them

The biggest problem with this keyboard is its "scissor" patented keypress junk. I do mean junk too. When you press down and hold down its possible to cause the keyboard to stop registering your press,even tho the key is still pressed. This means that...

This is a SWEET keyboard!!


Very appealing look - matches any desktop set-up very well.

ZIPPY EL-725 2-Tone 104 Normal Keys 18 Function Keys USB Slim Keyboard


Would have given it a solid 5 without the cons

Doesn't have right Ctrl another user mentioned, there is a noticable high-pitched sound when the EL is on

Light makes noise!


I decided to RMA this keyboard and order a non-lighted model (the Hiper one specifically). Unfortunately, I'll actually end up paying more in the end because of shipping costs, but I hate getting hardware with a feature that I essentially can't use.

Construction seems solid and key movement feels very good

Makes a noticable high pitched buzzing noise when the light is on. Apparently this is a common problem with keyboards that use the "indiglo" lighting method. If your PC is loud enough you might not notice it, but if you're a silent PC enthusiast (like...

ZIPPY EL-725 2-Tone 104 Normal Keys 18 Function Keys USB Slim Keyboard


If the light worked for more than a month I would have given it a 5/5.

Very nice feel ; Decent layout ; Light can be turned off and on ; Plug and play (all buttons worked)

The light stopped working at all after only a month. Now all I get is an annoying whine whenever the light is on
