Great keyboard that you can't get anymore

Matthew A., Newegg
12 April 2015
  • Summary: Don't bother with the knock offs. It's form not quality they seem.
  • Pros: This keyboard has lasted for almost a decade; and is still going strong. The only thing that has broken is one of the kickstands, but some superglue can fix that. Backlight still is going fairly strong. All the function keys is still work. No keys have faded, and this keyboard has seen regular us...
  • Cons: It's not mechanical, which for gamers is a con. So I knocked an egg purely just for that. The only other con is that the backlighting doesn't go through the keys, the letters are solid and don't allow the glow through. So even though backlit, the keys can be hard to see at night compared to other...

  • Summary: I have had this keyboard for 6 years playing video games heavily. The "WASD" keys are fine and show no sign of wear. The left most side keys are showing some wear on their outer side, but this keyboard has gone through a lot of punishment over the years and has never caused any issue.
  • Pros: Durable
  • Cons: No programmable keys

Pretty Long Lasting

David J., Newegg
18 May 2013
  • Pros: Lasted for over 8 years, very impressive. Tried to boot up today and the keyboard was shorting out or something strange. Any computer that I plugged it into caused the computer to shut off. Has always been responsive and easy to clean. Noticed it's been discontinued. RIP Saitek I, you'll be missed.
  • Cons: Didn't last 10 years?

A poor quality keyboard with many faults.

John I., Newegg
31 December 2012
  • Summary: Avoid it, consider yourself warned.
  • Pros: It lasted a bit over a year, through ample use of superglue.
  • Cons: The keyboard is downright flimsy, cheap plastic connections that break under any real use with ease, the superglue I used for some odd 40 repairs actually improved the durability beyond the original design. The plastic connectors under the keys broke regularly. Expect to pay the keyboard's cost i...

best keyboard i've ever had

Lucas S., Newegg
16 December 2012
  • Summary: very nice wrist-rest
  • Pros: great blue backlight! perfect to go with the fancy cases which are most commonly lit with similar blue LED's! keys are nice and smooth. No useless proprietary buttons all over the place!
  • Cons: the silver coating of the keys begins to wear off very slightly after a while, but really not that bad. With that said, slight wear on the keys is to be expected with any keyboard, so not too harsh of a con i suppose..

  • Pros: I've been rockin this keyboard since 2007... still going strong. None of the ink on the keys have worn off as some other reviewers have said.
  • Cons: However its age as shown... the backlights have started to fade (magenta still works :) Also my "L" key has become a bit touchy. I have to press hard to make it work on sometimes. Otherwise fully functional.

Great Basic Keyboard

PING N., Newegg
30 November 2012
  • Summary: This comment is experience from it's first version and the new version are almost the same, except that the volume controls are different from each keyboard. (Wheel vs Button) I've had this keyboard for about 7-8+ years now and it's still in good condition.
  • Pros: This is a comment from Eclipse's very first version and I plan to get one maybe in another year or two +Durable +Stylish +Has everything you'll ever need +Basic (I like basic) +Will last you a long time
  • Cons: -Paint on keys come off over-time -If you have small desk, this might be a problem since they keyboard is quite long (That's what she said!) -Spacebar problems

Very Durable Keyboard Mechaniclly

Trevor S., Newegg
30 November 2012
  • Summary: 6 years of more then average gaming on this keyboard. Couldn't ask for anything more
  • Pros: Got just over 6 years of use out of it. A lof of gaming hours were logged with this keyboard
  • Cons: The coating on the movement keys for FPS games started to wear off after year 1. After 6 years it now spits out random letters/numbers combinations. Backspace doesn't work.

3 years....

jeff m., Newegg
4 November 2012
  • Summary: glad the price still isnt almost 100 bucks. hope the quality is the same. i want this next one to last 3 years also.
  • Pros: well, im writing this using that keyboard. the first eclipse. the space bar is giving my an issue, its the spring, some kid beat on it cause his character wasn't jumping. the ink has worn off the gaming keys...a,s,d,c,e....it makes everything so much easier at night, and looks real neato....
  • Cons: it needs a bath after 3 years, wish i had a replacement spacebar spring...when the new one comes i will fix this.
