Default Recommendations - White LED Keyboard

Wondering if you guys have any good experience with a budget-ish white led keyboard.

Key Features
- Full white or RGB backlight
- Full keyboard
- Would like media keys
- $50-75 CAD range

Cheers

Found some pics. https://www.google.ca/search?q=tactx...Q&ved=0CDIQsAQ The pictures don't really do it justice. The LEDs are much much more crisp than shown. Any way you look at it,it's a great buy.

Backlighting looks great to me, only thing I have a gripe with is the shape. Definetly keeping this in mind for that price thanks.

What's wrong with it's shape? Not any different than most logitechs and very similar to most others. Here are some pics of other boards. https://www.google.ca/search?q=gamin...&ved=0CJMBELAE One thing for sure,you'll be hard pressed to find a keyboard as good as the TactX for the price. Anything with similar features.solid build etc. would be at least $40 more.

Check out the Apex Raw (or non Raw for rgb) maybe?
SteelSeries - Gaming Keyboards - SteelSeries Apex [RAW] Gaming Keyboard

I'm using a Deck Francium Pro (buggy) and a CM Storm Quickfire Rapid-I (the CM being much cheaper but nice!) they are tkl though and I'd recommend the CM at a good price...
