Saitek Eclipse II Keyboard

techPowerUp!
8 March 2007
  • Summary: 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 there is not a lot to be gained from spending around 40 € on this keyboard besides the back-light, comfort and silent use.
  • Pros: 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
  • Cons: 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 Backlit Keyboard

  • Excerpt: The Good Adjustable backlight in 3 colors. Removable wrist rest. Number keypad. The Bad 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 solution.
  • Pros: Adjustable backlight in 3 colors. Removable wrist rest. Number keypad.
  • Cons: Keys spaced far apart. Huge keyboard. Backlight shines too brightly through keys.

  • Conclusion: 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 years and it's starting to look a little ragged and dirty. It's time to retire this keyboard to the guest computer, I can't have someone coming over to play games having a better keyboard than I do!
  • Pros: Three backlight color choices, Dimmer switch for adjusting brightness, Keys are responsive and have a good, solid feel
  • Cons: Illumination not as bright as previous version, Purple color inconsistent (reddish side lighting), Media keys are not laser etched

Saitek Eclipse II Illuminated Keyboard

12 November 2007
  • Summary: Inne i tastaturet sitter det en lyskilde som kan lyse i de tre ulike fargene rød, blå og lilla. Når datamaskinen er påslått, skinner lyset mellom tastene og gjennom de gjennomsiktige bokstavene. Det sitter også en liten lampe i hver av sidene på tastaturet. Disse kaster lyset ut på skrivebordet og gjør opplevelsen enda mer behagelig for øynene en sen kveld på kontoret. Det ser virkelig bra ut uansett hvilken farge man velger!
  • Pros: Behagelig lys, Bråker ikke, Enkelt, Pris, Blæreeffekt

Saitek Eclipse II Illuminated Keyboard

Komputer for alle
29 June 2007
  • Summary: Eclipse II lyser op, når pc'en er tændt og selv om, at det ligner et lidt primitivt og plat tastatur fra en fremtidsfilm fra 1980, vinder det ved nærmere bekendtskab. Inde i tastaturet sidder en lyskilde, som kan lyse i tre forskellige farver: rød, blå og lilla. Når pc'en er tændt, kan lyset ses i mellem tasterne og igennem deres gennemsigtige bogstaver.
  • Pros: Behageligt lys, Larmer ikke, Simpelt, Pris, Blæreeffekt

Test: Saitek Eclipse II Keyboard

Gamereactor
8 June 2007
  • Conclusion: Jeg har lenge ønsket å teste ut Saiteks Saitek Eclipse II Keyboard og gleden var stor da en pakke fra Komplett.no dukket opp på døra med den snille lokale postmannen. Ikke visste jeg hva som var i pakken, men hadde en anelse på at det kunne være tastaturet jeg har sett meg behag i. Saitek er som du sikkert kjenner en stor hardware-produsent og har igjennom mange år produsert masse produkter for oss PC-eiere.
  • Pros: Stilrent tastatur med kraftig stillbart lys. Lang ledning og gode taster.
  • Cons: Litt dyrt...
