Excerpt: The Saitek Eclipse Illuminated keyboard works just as expected. There are 3 settings for the illuminated effect - off, bright, and dim. I use the keyboard everyday and so far I have had no stuck keys and no problems at all. What else is there to say? It is a minimalistic design with no extra fancy keys lining the side and top apart from volume and mute controls in the upper right hand corner.
Excerpt: I don't remember why I had decided to replace my old 'vanilla' keyboard, but I am so glad I did. I have seen other keyboards that had 'quick hit' buttons to take you directly to your e-mail or to a favorite page, but I didn't need anything like that and would not have used them. I know enough about computers that I could probably open my control panel and troubleshoot a priniting problem faster than I could have set up the one touch print button in the first place.
Excerpt: Needed a new keyboard for my PC so went to Walmart and bought the cheapest in-store model they had. What a mistake! Hated the flat keys and the keyboard itself gave out on me soon after I purchased it. After doing some on-line research I settled on the Saitek Eclipse II. Turned out to be one of the best purchases I have made for my PC! This keyboard is totally awesome!
Summary: I've had the Saitek Eclipse Keyboard for over a month and so far so good. There aren't any signs of wear and tear or anything with at about 2-3 hours of use a day. The blue lighting is plenty bright, can be dimmed, and also can turn off with press of a button. Typing is relatively quiet and has a pretty nice feel to it.
