Saitek Eclipse Keyboard

MTwain4251, Rate it all!
2 September 2009
  • Summary: Illumination so dim as to be entirely useless, which was the reason I got the keyboard. Otherwise, the keyboard functions fine, but is no better than my stock Dell keyboard, and therefore not worth the price. I took it apart to replace the LEDs with brighter ones, and discovered that there are only FIVE tiny surface-mount LEDS on a strand lighting the entire keyboard. There should be at least twice that number.

Keys Wear Out Quickly and Often

Ethan A. Winning "ewin64", Amazon
17 November 2007
  • Summary: When the keys started to blur on my Saitek 2 and I had replaced them twice, I thought that I'd go down a notch and get this keyboard. I DO like the idea of a backlit keyboard. However, I've had the same problem with this Saitek: see photo in gallery, and you'll see that the B, C, and U are becoming unreadable. Yes, I used the same photo for both keyboards: the only difference was that the N, G, O, and five others blurred on the other keyboard.

Erratic behavior

Francis L. Cunningham "ButchAZ", Amazon
7 April 2007
  • Summary: Always desired this keyboard and finally purchased it. Everything worked great, loved the lighted keyboard and soft touch keys. Unfortunately after awhile my system started responding erratically, after troubleshooting, I found that when I used another keyboard all of the problems went away! Requested a replacement and recieved it very fast, still not sure if all issues have been resolved, but will see.

Keyboard

Big Guy, Amazon
2 March 2006
  • Summary: After only one month, the lighting on the keyboard is failing. many keys do not light at all. Lighting is very uneven. One good feature is the sound control keys on the keyboard,but Iwould not buy this keyboard again as I wanted a keyboard to use in the dark. I leave the light on the keyboard turned on all the time. It might be better to turn the light on only when needed.

Saitek Eclipse Paint Problem

Fuzzy, Amazon
23 February 2006
  • Summary: Pros: Everything I was looking for in a keyboard. It's backlit, which is a fantastic feature in a dark room. The key response is very nice. Not too soft and not too hard. Cons: I use it quit a bit for gaming, with the home keys receiving most of the use. The paint has worn off badly on the A,S,and D keys and is starting to wear on the X key.

Eine schöne Maus mit ergonomischen Schwächen

cuddlycat, Amazon
24 November 2010
  • Summary: Nachdem ich einige Zeit aufwenden musste, um die schöne Maus aus ihrem Verpackungs-Gefängnis zu befreien, konnte ich es nicht erwarten, Hand an das gute Stück zu legen. Das Material fühlt sich gut und wertig an. An der Verarbeitung ist nichts auszusetzen. Nach dem Einlegen der Batterie (es wird nur eine Mignon-Zelle benötigt, welche im Lieferumfang ist) und einer kurzen Anmeldung über Bluetooth konnte ich sofort damit arbeiten.

Edle aber unergonomische Maus

TE, Amazon
15 January 2010
  • Summary: Da zu dieser Maus im Internet noch nicht allzu viel zu finden ist, hier ein paar Eindrücke. Zunächst einmal ist sie sehr klein, etwa so wie eine kleine Notebookmaus. Das alleine wäre nicht so schlimm, wenn sie nicht auch derart flach wäre, dass die Hand nicht aufgelegt werden kann. Man muss sie sozusagen permanent mit den Fingern unter der Hand führen, was schnell ermüdet, da man so nur den Handballen hinter der Maus ablegen kann.

très design

arb, Amazon
28 April 2007
  • Summary: Son look est très "tendance chic et design". Le terme souris n'est même plus adapté à ce touch Eclipse Obligatoire: un PC bluetoth Après un moment de prise en main car le défilement est un rectangle tactile, on y arrive. Il n'y a pas de programmation de raccourci (comme sur ma souris Mac) Pour les jeux, ce matériel n'est pas facile, n'est pas assez précis et rapide en réaction. Il convient à un travail de bureau occasionnel pour un amateur de modernisme mobilier.

souris de secours?

Estephe, Amazon
28 April 2007
  • Summary: une souris plutôt sympa coté design, légère, simple d'utilisation. la pile s'intègre bien dans la partie inférieure. pour une longue utilisation, je pense qu'on privilégira une souris plus ergonomique avec un dos rond (ex logitech) avec des fonctions qui tombent sous les doigts! Utilisation plutôt ponctuelle pour cette souris.
