Recommended backlit keyboards?
 
Hey guys, I was wondering if you had any favorites in the backlit category. I'd prefer full size over slim and a blue backlight to match my pretty new Deathadder. Clickety-clackety noise when typing is a plus as I'm used to and have grown fond of that- my other word processor is a typewriter :thumb: Thanks in advance, guys.

I love my Everglide DKT Pro:
NCIX.com - Buy Everglide DKTBoard Pro Gaming Keyboard Black Brushed Aluminum Backlit USB - EG0306E01201 In Canada.

It is a bit smaller than a standard keyboard but i find it extremely comfortable, amazingly solid and a pleasure to type on :thumb:

Using the Everglide one here at work, its good, but I perfer a slim keyboard. I picked up the Logitech Slim illuminated ~$70 and I LOVE it. Very good key response.

+1 on the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard
It's seems to be the middle option of the three so far in terms of the key layout.

Thanks for all the input, guys. :biggrin: I like the G11 alright but I'd totally spring for a first gen G15 if I ever found one (and wasn't broke at the time). I wonder what's used to light the new ones... Maybe a hack is in order.

Although I was looking at the Everglide and Logitech Backlight I ended up going with the Saitec Eclipse. Great little keyboard and Newegg had it for 34.99 with free shipping. So it came to under $50 which is a great deal.
