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.
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

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

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
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.
