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...

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...

12 December 2012
  • 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

Joseph 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

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.

28 September 2012
  • Summary: I dropped a large 50lb. plaque on it broke 2 keys still works.No other board would have lived through that.I've had friends who spent over a 100 $ on KB's and in 2-3 years they fall apart all the keys still have there letter's visible.It just won't DIE even my friends don't believe it's the same...
  • Pros: This THING has been working for over 3 years ,I've spilt drinks on it too many times to count.Knocked it over on the floor a hundred times and it still works.Even the 3 lights still work.Even the dimmer knob works.It also has a volume control.
  • Cons: As many keyboards as i've been through over the years and this THING still works.All the others don't compare to this.I could have bought 6 of these with the money i've wasted,over the years.

Reliable since day 1

Eric M., Newegg
5 September 2012
  • Summary: Everything from the keys to the LED's still work fine, and the adjustable wrist rest is a nice touch.
  • Pros: After building my girlfriend a rig, I started with Razer's keyboards. I went through 2 brand new keyboards and two RMA's and still suffered problems. I went back to my old friend Saitek and haven't an issue yet. She's been a heavy gamer and has brutalized it for over a year now and it's just as g...
  • Cons: The coating on one of her keys is starting to come off. Though I'm speculating that is because of her fingernails. Regardless, the coating would come off any keyboard with that much use. Especially since it was on the W key.
