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 bought this thing some time ago, but have not gotten to review it until now. This lapse in time is a good thing though, and allows me to understand the keyboard a bit better. Honestly I have nothing bad to say about this thing, and in fact I am writing this review with it. I purchased it to help me out when I'm using the PC into the wee-hours of the morning.
Summary: Keyboard arrived before estimated arrival date, and was shipped in good packaging. Was as advertised and works well. Keyboard is responsive and easy to type on, works well for typing and gaming. Backlighting is clear and keys are visable in any light. Users of MAC keyboards should take note however, because of the spacing, I often hit 7 instead of 8, but thats probably just me, and a. Cursory glance at what I'm typing makes it only the slightest thought.
Summary: The Saitek Eclipse is exactly the keyboard I was looking to buy. I wanted a sturdy keyboard that was comfortable to type on and had backlighting. I did not want a bunch of extra buttons I'd never use but would have to pay for anyway. It's plenty bright enough to read all the buttons in the dark, so the backlighting isn't worthless like it is on some cheaper backlit keyboards.
Summary: I've only had this keyboard for about a week now but it is an amazing keyboard, exactly what I was looking for. I was looking for 2 things while searching for a new Keyboard to replace my old Logisys mulitmedia illuminated keyboard. I wanted something simple and something with some backlighting so this keyboard really fit the bill as it is like most any other generic keyboard as it has minimal multimedia and doesn't require any special software, the backlighting on it is...
Summary: I am using this keyboard even now. It is highly responsive, has wonderful lighting, and a very ergonomic design. The only down side is that I wish it had more colors than just blue for the back lighting.
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.
